Before I lose these in the cloud or the pool (a moment of silence for Hubbo’s phone, which went swimming with him yesterday), a few pix from the family reunion.
A memorable, hard-earned sack lunch from the dining hall. Why does a ham sandwich taste so good when you’ve hiked for it?
The signs were numerous.
I never located Small Lounge.
This just doesn’t seem quite enough for a town name.
And it’s not a trip through Virginia without one of these:
Two new crafts emerged during the endless chewing going on in the dining room.
Craft #1: Marquetry.
The dining room contained a heroic quantity of marquetry by William C. Bader, Marqueteur: four walls filled with plaque upon plaque.
Craft #2: taxidermy that would make any taxidermist proud.
We need to keep an open mind about expanding our crafting. I just don’t know how long this knitting thing is going to last. Note marquetry in background.
Brothers Aubrey and Clif with Dad. Note marquetry in background.
Finally, here’s the proof-of-attendance photo of all the family members who attended.
At least three of us will be taking up marquetry. Taxidermy is the new yoga.
