I'm always shocked when I see photos of the person that is supposed to be me. Ack. I forgot I was scrunching down because Peggy was threatening to do bad things to me, a poodle was sniffing my hair and I *might* have been sticking my knees in Brian's back. LOL Lovely pose...somebody grab that little boy before he runs off again!!

Believe it or not, I brought my camera and never even took it out.

It was great to see everyone!

none of ur business, OK(Zone 5b)

I never got my camera out ! duh.

Well for the other DG Members...
our RU was held at Chilo Locks.
Originally part of the historic wicket lock system installed on the Ohio River it now contains the museum dedicated to those days.

First the big 'unloads'

Part of the RU fun is putting faces to names.

Here's Celene, Wvdaisy and her DH chatting.

BooHoo....I'm so sorry I missed it!

none of ur business, OK(Zone 5b)

we missed you too Joyce :(

Franklin, OH(Zone 6a)

Thanks Sue!

Hillsboro, OH(Zone 6a)

Sorry we missed you Joyce. I know you would have liked to have come. When life calms down for you, we'll have to have another get together. You are doing what you need to right now and there will be time for you to decompress another time. I really feel for you.

Franklin, OH(Zone 6a)

Thanks, Chele. I feel I'm doing the right thing now also. My SIL said I never heard anyone say....Gee I wish I hadn't spent so much time with my parents before they died.....

Cincinnati, OH(Zone 6b)

So True Joyce!

(Di) Seven Mile, OH(Zone 6b)

Amen to that, Joyce! Everyone did miss you at the reunion but you were right where you were supposed to be.

Cincinnati (Anderson, OH(Zone 6a)

Great pics, Esther! Thanks for taking them.

Enjoyed visiting with you and Bob, too!

(I am determined to get over to your neck of the woods before too long!)
