5/18/13 Saturday at Elwood, IL (Cathy and Win’s Farm)
Since turkey was on the menu and Cathy had hurt her arm in a fall, I helped with getting that turkey prepared and in it’s bag for baking by 9 am. Everyone (there are 8 siblings) was invited to come around noon, so we aimed to have it ready by 11:30 am. We also got the setting stuff ready.
At 11:00 am, Janet (Cathy’s sister) & Elesio, with their daughter Dianna and her cute little ones, Isariah and Elianna arrived. So, of course, the conversations started. Janet is a Physical Therapist, so she gave Cathy some much needed advice and exercises for her sore arm. Elesio is a professional Photographer, so it was fun learning the course of his career. Unfortunately, I didn’t get their photo because they were the first to leave and the trigger reminding me that I wanted to take pictures! Wouldn’t you know, I miss the photographer.
By 1 pm no one else had arrived and we all at the farm were hungry, so we dished up. Of course, not too much later they started arriving.
Gary (Cathy’s brother) and Maryanne (later on their son Ross) came first. They thought it was set for dinner (already ate lunch), because Bruce was coming (after he got off work at 3 pm).
Steven (Cathy’s brother & Bruce’s twin) and Karen.
Finally, Bruce (Cathy’s brother & Steven’s twin).
Everyone got a tour of Miss Zanzibar and had great fun looking for the hidden animals in the tiger painting on the rear.
I tell you, this group loves to talk and have strong opinions, so it was non-stop discussion until the last one left. We continued that conversation with Cathy until bedtime. Fun day!
