Ben Johnson (Above
left- Charleston, IL) played and sang a few tunes for
us. The kids were scattered all over. Some went fishing
and Chris's boys caught near two dozen trout. Most of the
kids spent some time in the pool, so did some adults, and
generally all of us showed back up at mealtime. Joshua (
Sue & Bob Johnson's youngest) and Amanda (Pat &
Ralph Stevenson's oldest) plus Amanda's friend are
sitting on the porch swing - Above
- June 9th - 11th,
- We again met at the
White Buffalo Resort at the confluence of the
Buffalo and White Rivers (Near Mountain
Home). We visited, played, reminisced, ate
some great food, and generally had an
all-round good time.

a domino lesson in progress - Uncle Joe
lays down two dominoes and says, 'I'll take a
dime.' Ben and Larry question, 'How can you
lay down two at once?' and Joe responds,
'because none of you have a play.' Dad-gum if
he wasn't right!

- Well that's it for our reunion
pictures. To Bob's wife Sue, how did you avoid the
camera? And Allen and Olivia were there with the baby,
but not there for the photo session - and how did we miss
getting a shot of them or the baby? Will get you all next
time. Take more pictures! We also missed Keith and Jill
and his family from Effingham, IL; not missed as in a
photo - - but they were also unable to join us this time.
We are counting on seeing them here in two years. Be
there or we'll send those three guys (above right)
looking for you. Think about what you would say if they
showed up on your front porch, eh heh . . .
- See you all in two years - back
at White Buffalo. Let's plan on it!
