Sheets/Perkins Reunion

Perkins Reunion 7-05 011
Originally uploaded by drmacro.
This July Julie's mother's family organized a family reunion for the Sheets and Perkins families. (Julie's maternal grandmother was a sheets and had 10 children. Her maiden name was Perkins.)

At the re-union, Julie's cousin Steve Golden took a bunch of great pictures, including a number of really cute pictures of Dada. I've taken the liberty of uploading all his pictures to Flickr. These are limited to "friends and family". You can view all the reunion pictures here:

This picture shows Dada and me sitting on the veranda of the building where we slept.

The event was held at an elaborate church camp in Ceta Glen, an arm of Palo Duro Canyon (the third largest canyon in the U.S.), south of Amarillo in the Texas panhandle (google maps. I think this is the right location).

We had a great time and it was a fun drive, if somewhat long coming home (it's a good 10 hours back to Austin). We took back roads on the way back and it was nice to see parts of Texas we'd never been through and to see the panhandle again (except for one trip to Amarillo for Julie's 20-year high-school reunion, I haven't been back since I graduated from Texas Tech in 1984).
