SO I LIED...
I said in my last post that I would be back with pictures from our weekend. I didn't take pictures. It poured on us the entire drive down to Warsaw. Normally, the trip takes about an hour and fifteen minutes. It took a whopping 2 and 1/2 hours! The reunion was kind of a bust this year. Barely anyone showed up. Only one of my direct uncles was there but he left early. His significant other was home with the flu (which is also where Bubba was, home with the flu).
Someone's little boy kept picking on Gooey. He'd blind-side him from no where for no reason and the child's mother wouldn't do anything about it. Funny thing is, I don't even know who his mother is. She some relative of some sort but I haven't a clue.
I have looked forward to this reunion all year especially for mom's Aunt Nadine's ghoulash. I don't know what she puts in it but it's yummy. I tried to get the recipe for it but all she would say is there is no recipe, she just puts stuff in it. Yeah right!
The bad part was that on the way home, I got a stomach ache. Not nauseous or anything like that, just my stomach hurt. It made for a miserable drive home. It was probably the ghoulash!
The best part of the entire trip was the conversations on the ride there. My sister rode with us and we had some nice chats. We chatted about things from what your poop should look like (solid in the shape of an S according to Dr Oz) and lesbian turkeys. Yes, lesbian turkeys.
There's a park near our home called the Chouteau Greenway. I pass it every day on my way home and my sister passes it on her way to work. There are 2 turkey hens that hand out on the greenway. Now, this time of year, turkeys should have babies with them. These 2 hens have no babies. We've never seen a male turkey in that area. We've come to the assumption that these are lesbian turkeys.
So, hopefully next years reunion will be better. I've talked my oldest sister into going with us so it should prove to be more entertaining. And I think I'll work on perfecting my ghoulash this year and take it so that I can outdo Aunt Nadine's since she won't share her recipe. Darn old woman!
