Oregon Trip

Arrived home safe from almost 3 weeks in Oregon Friday morning.
Had a good visit with daughter Patty and family. Dominick and Savannah and I did Enchanted Forrest (which they loved at 2yr and still enjoy at pre teen. Great B B Q Aaron and thanks for finding the Ruby Ale for Don. Patty thanks for the photo album of my parents 50th Wedding Anniversary, Jerry & Lynda and Melba and Jim said they had never seen the pictures.
Had lunch with a square dance friend Betty McCollum who reminded me that it was Wednesday and the Wednesday Marathon Hand & Foot Game was at Dan & Ginger Allen's. Was able to arrive about 7:30pm just in time for a great dessert provided by Cathy and Dale Burnett, then the 7 of us switched to a card game called Baseball.
Darlene Johnson a friend I worked with had a nice luncheon (and I got the recipe for her wonderful sandwich). Enjoyed catching up on the life and families of Patti Baker and Clarene Myers along with others they had seen or heard of lately.
Spent 4 days with my Brother and wife. My sister and husband also came for a couple days, did the Elk's picnic (why was it more fun when we were younger?) and played Hand & Foot plus lots of yacking and catching up.
Monday before I came home had lunch with Al & Lovena, Dorris & Bob and Doris (all Aunts and Uncles) plus Jerry & Lynda & Melba & Jim. Looked at the photo album and got names that I had forgotten in the 18 years since the celebration.
