Family reunion

Every year, Casey's family goes down to Delta for the annual family reunion. This was the first year I have been down there. I have heard all about the crazy aunts who fiddled and yoddled, but this was the first time I got to see it for myself. It was amazing...haha.

This was the first time Casey's Grandparents saw Gavin. They were very excited to see him. His Grandpa is getting very old and frail, but he wanted to hold Gavin. As he was holding him, both Grandma and I had our hands up ready to catch Gavin if he fell, because Grandpa was shaking so bad while he was holding him. He didn't hold him for long, but he was very happy to see him and hold him.

It was human beyond a doubt.. And they would prove as terrible a warning to him as the fatal characters upon Belshazzar's wall.. Firstly come those which exhibit a non-repressed, non-concealed desire ; these are dreams of the infantile type, becoming ever rarer among adults.. Jacobus; but Brede cut him short.. But we must not forget that it is, after all, the wish of a child, that it is a wish-feeling of infantile strength only.. A kitchen lamp was brought to light them to the door, the entry lamp having long since been extinguished.. A man can outlive hardships that would kill a woman, but a woman can endure discomforts that would drive a man crazy.. Then Marann looked indignant.. It iz te shicken ab te wing, und te owl ab te wing, und te imp ab te wing, und te head-teuffel ab te wing.. 'Old on! he said: don't pe in te 'urry--don't. A canal, a quiet lake, and a boat which could not be upset.. I am by no means naturally nervous, and the very few glasses of Lafitte which I had sipped served to embolden me a little, so that I felt nothing of trepidation, but merely uplifted my eyes with a leisurely movement and looked carefully around the room for the intruder.. I laughed because you laughed, said the girl.. Hastings is, I have been told, a director in over a dozen large corporations.. Another parturition dream is related by Abraham of a young woman looking forward to her first confinement.. The deacon looked at her sharply.. But my best Joseph, you make your mother tremble. The information that it would be impossible to upset the little vessel had greatly cheered him, and he could laugh.. This positively establishes a relation between sleeping states and waking states and disposes of the widely prevalent view that dreams are purely nonsensical phenomena coming from nowhere and leading nowhere.. On the broad, dusty sill inside were propped two cards: the one on the left was his own red-lettered announcement for the week; the one at the right--oh, world of wonders!--was a photogravure of that exact stretch of the inner coast of Florida which Gideon knew best, which was home...
