...our reunion in Branson
June, 2010
the whole group

Year Four and we're still talking to one another...and laughing and joking .... and we're even all still walking.

This year we met in Branson, the idea of Donna, who wasn't even able to make it because of another reunion she had to attend.

We gained a new face this year: Sandy Helton, as cheerful as ever. We hope next year YOU will be able to meet up with us. The plan is tentatively Sarasota, Florida, home of Jerry and Dale.

In the meantime, enjoy the pics. Thanks to everyone who sent pictures. It's fun to see all of the photos, and all in one sitting.

One thing we didn't do this year, guys: We didn't get a group shot!! The one at left was taken at that Tossing Rolls place.

Below: Dale by day (A little more sane, and just as loveable.)

waiting for the big drop
Waiting for the big drop! Sheila, Annie and Jerry did the thrill of a Zip line. The rest of us waited in anticipation...and waited...and waited...and waited.

Annie and Jerry, as cool as popcicles out of a fridge.
Smug and proud! So, what are you thinking, Annie? "YES! I did it!" ? Or, "I can't wait to tell Al about this!" ? Kudos to you.

The Devil's Pool Restaurant
We had a couple meals at the nearby Devil's Pool Restaurant.
A shuttle returned our "Fearless Three" from the bottom of the line.

breakfast at Devil's Pool Restaurant
Devil's Pool Restaurant was close to the vacation house and served a delicious breakfast. We went there two mornings. It was convenient for the last morning, from where we all said our good-byes.

Our newcomer this year: Sandy Helton. She drove out from Fort Worth, Texas, and said she'd join us again next year.

We rented a pontoon and spent a few hours on Table Rock Lake, outside of Branson. With this group, being on the water seems to be a highlight.

"I'll do yours if you'll do mine." What a deal!
.And off they zip ...
Is this the point where Becky raised her hands, and the boat took a nose dive? And then Bill, not be outdone by the boat, did the same?
Seems if there's a Cracker Barrel around, we will find it.
