We Are All Related

Greetings friends and neighbors.  
So the first big holiday weekend is over. 
And memories of past holidays comes to the front.

The Old Farmer and The Old Farmer's Wife often hosted
holiday gatherings. Guests were greeted at the side door, which
is where the driveway ran up beside the house. 

Coats were gathered, greetings, kisses and hugs exchanged.
The children want to know where all the animals are.
One aunt complains if her coat is not gathered up promptly.
Cousins are off to play games. Uncle sets up home movie lights!

We try to duck the lights and the camera.
Dinner is served, the buffet laden with ham or turkey;
and macaroni salad and green beans and relish trays.
Flower cut radishes and little gerkin pickles, olives of all colors! 
Conversation flows with the ginger ale and beer.

Mitakuye Oyasin!
