Great to be able to get back into the forum today M1 and catch up on the news. Yes I agree and hope Kai-Ann can make it in 2013. Whenever and wherever the reunion takes place next year I will be there - god willing!

What a fun day that was. Just pure laughs and enjoying the beautiful weather. Doesn't get any better than that.

 

Guess we should explain the UPSIDE-DOWN sign that Carl is holding... Margi wanted the vets to hold the sign so she could take some pics to show our "beer suppliers/donators" and say thanks for their contribution for the weekend. So Carl has the sign and is holding it upside down and we yell, no don't change it, leave it. So we were all laughing and saying, how appropriate - beer and upside sign! :drinkin: :drinkin: :drinkin: :drinkin: So then it took off from there and was our joke or laugh of the day. Margi started calling our boys the "Double MM's" or "2 M&M's". Yup, that's WWII upside down. :pdt12: :pdt12: :pdt12:

Marion a very impressive array of pictures showing what a great time was had by all. Thanks to your, Margi and John's efforts I had a ball together with the vets, relatives and others who attended the reunion. Looking forward to meeting you all again whenever/wherever it is in 2013 !!

I am already counting down to next year to, whenever and wherever! Amen!

 

Miss you too. Wish we lived closer so we could meet for lunch or simply sit and chat. Sure appreciate our friendship.
