A Big Meal For Odie!

I have a picture for you that I have been wanting to post all week long. Odie text us last Friday night with big news. She had just cooked her first meal in her house all on her own.

We have eaten many, many meals in Odie's home while under construction and a few meals brought in from Acapulco since the house has been completed. But this is the first meal that Odie prepared in her home by herself for herself.

Are you ready? It is a very balanced meal. I see dairy, grains, meat, and of course the great balancer, carbonation!


So there is Odie's first cooked meal. Two different kinds of cheese, pretzel crackers, hot dogs and some mayonnaise as a dipping sauce! Way to go, Odie!

I knew you all would love that.

2018 Boggs Family Reunion Pictures

I was having such a good time visiting with family that I completely dropped the ball on taking pictures of the Boggs Family reunion. Odie was not with us or I would cast all the blame on her. Thankfully my sister did take a few pictures.

A cousin named Brenda Boggs Haney sent me some pictures too. Without those pictures this post would be slim pickings for sure. Brenda's Grandpa Lafayette Boggs was a brother to my Great Grandpa Albert Boggs.

For many years the Boggs reunion was the second Sunday in August. It was always important to my Grandpa and Grandma Boggs and we always enjoyed going when we could. Grandpa Martin Boggs has been gone 25 years and Grandma Boggs has been gone 21. In fact, most of their generation is gone from the Boggs family. It is a different crowd now, but it is family and we need to know them.

Now the reunion is the second Saturday in July. We like to go down a day or two before and play music, sing and visit with some of the family in the campground. We were not able to do that this year, but I am glad we got to go.

Thank you for tuning in today.

Vintage View Vednesday Boggs Reunion 2009

Since the Boggs reunion at Carter Caves State Park was this past Saturday I thought it would be nice to see some pictures from the reunion in 2009 for our Vintage View Vednesday.

We do not always get to go to the reunion, but when we go, we always enjoy it a great big bunch. This particular year, 2009, it was very, very hot. We ended up going down to the creek and sitting our chairs right down in the water one afternoon trying to cool off.

It helps that there is a cave nearby the creek and we get some cool air from that too!

Dad went to KFC and picked up a 50 piece bucket and we ate the chicken right there in the creek. I think it was the best chicken I ever ate!

It was also one of my favorite times with my family.

One of the pictures from that day is also a favorite of mine that I have posted here several times. It is a great picture of my Dad sitting in the creek..


It was a super weekend and here are a few pictures to prove it.

Thank you for joining us today.
