Once upon a time – in the fifties – there were six little Crawfords.
Then they grew up and scattered around the world. (One of them married me, then we divorced, but I stayed a Crawford and a sister in the family). There were various get-togethers such as their parents 50th wedding and their mother’s 100th birthday. After she died, they decided to go on gathering, why not celebrate the 70th birthdays, each choosing to go where one of the others lived? Mildred’s was held in Ireland, George’s in South Africa, Yvonne’s in Australia. David chose BLOCK ISLAND!!!!
We have been occupied for the last two weeks at his 70th birthday party reunion – 28 family members made it for the actual day last Sunday. Someone has taken decent photos I hope, I got to be tour guide and drive “the van” so I didn’t get many – here are a few.
We have had a good time, now everyone is on their way home and those of us who live here return to normal.
