Today marked my annual family reunion, celebrated in June each year, at least since 2001 or so, and held at my sister Dina's house.
I wish I could sit here and write about how fantastic these get-togethers are, but I can't.
For the most part we all just sat around talking about various fluff. We also played a couple of games of horseshoes.
I'm glad that Dina has started holding these things. I just wish people would take them more seriously. Several of our cousins didn't make it, again, and I can't help but wonder what happend to the old days when family - even extended ones - were important to everyone.
Not that I'm perfect when it comes to family appreciation. Far from it. The annual reunion of my mother's side of the family has become more of a nuisance than an event I look forward to.
Anyway, I'm rambling here, so I'll stop.
