Well another year came and went. We were fortunate to have another wonderful get together. This past reunion we celebrated our 18th Reunion! Believe.
This year we went back to our old stomp'n grounds at Lake Mendocino. We didn't get sites next to the Lake but a great time was had none the less.
So what was memorable this year? Well many things, here is a synopsis of the highlights as recalled by yours truly. Ahhhmm... Well lets see...
Rene picked our shirt color this year - Khaki. Gloria brought a Karaoke machine and we managed to hatch up a couple beetles songs. Lalo brought a BIG bag of HOT Jalapeno's and a few of us had to make extra trips to the restrooms. Jose towed in his boat and Alex managed to keep his hand out of the rope. The yearly "Ukiah Open" was bested by Jose and Manuel over Ricardo and James (but only by a point or two... Maybe three). Bobby opened his suitcase from the previous year to find 1 right shoe. Eduardo is adamant that it doesn't belong to him. Nena pieced together some of the broken chairs and "frankinsteined" one out of many, with many pieces left over for next year (i dunno who got the best of that one). We celebrated an 18th Birthday. We had new additions to the Family, Natalia, ????(someone Help me out here) (and some are "In the Oven" as they say). Someone had a few too much Malibu Rum and abandoned her children to go worship the porcelain God. Hint; 1 word, female name, rhymes with "Cochina". Someone finally got Martha to wash dishes (i think). No kids were lost and no new ones were found. Jose ran 5 laps around the campsite (~5k) on a bet (i dunno what he won). All the kids (and some grown up wannabies) got tattoos. And last but not least, we stopped off at the Frosty Freeze on the way back home for hamburgers, shakes, and ice cream!
