A View From the Porch

I can count on two finger the number of places I am comfortable when I call them up and ask if they want to host my family reunion. One is at Millie's in Illinois - that is where we had Thanksgiving.

The other is in Tekamah, Nebraska. I called Cliff and Marilyn and ask if they would like to host a family reunion over Spring break. Their answer was, "Of course we would." I even tried talking them out of it a couple times - it didn't work, they were ready.

This is a view from the Morrow's porch the day I arrived. I'll write more later but Cliff just said the barbecue chicken (his world famous barbecue chicken) is coming along nicely. I better go check. More about this most excellent adventure when we return.

Nice meeting you today. Glad Cliff brought you along.
Now, if he doesn't hit his deadline Monday, I'll know why (just kidding, I'm not that concerned, he hasn't failed me yet. And I don't even hit my own deadlines!)

Yes, please tell us! At first I was jealous, but then I remember you ARE family, Cliff's adopted family. So, you should be able to have a reunion over there.

Reunions are so fun!! I did three and had cousins etc., come from all over. It was so fun to meet them and we still keep in touch.
About those Nebraska people, they are so friendly it's fun just being around them!

Thanks for the visit Ralph. It's always an honor to have you and the family. Also, I know it takes a couple of hours to figure out the 'Morrow' method of entertaining but you and yours always fit right in. Please return as often as you can.

See, now, that's what I call a friend. Hosting your reunion and barbecue chicken? You've got to hold onto these people. But then, they've put up with you for this long, so chances are they're friends for life. *G*
