Time Marches On......

Time - how it does march on!  It's hard to believe that Summer is winding down, the kids are back in school and before we know Christmas will be here!

Labor Day Weekend always finds me reminiscing about some of the most happiest moments of my childhood.  We always made the trek to Turkey Texas or Washington Oklahoma for the Collins Family Reunion.  This was all my dad's family.  They loved getting together, laughing and talking, playing cards and dominoes.  I remember playing with my cousins, the wonderful food, and being smothered my Aunt Agatha's kisses.  And of course there was the big bet between my dad and cousin Michael Collins, $100.00 on who was going to win on Texas-OU Weekend.  My mother would get so mad that daddy would bet that much money ($100.00) was a lot of money then!  I love all these wonderful memories!

Now time marches on, all my dad's siblings have passed and we no longer have the Collins Family Reunion.  I often wonder where all my cousins are, what is going on in their lives now, and if they have the same fond memories like I do.  Oh and Michael Collins - Texas will beat Oklahoma this year!
