2008 Reunion Plans

| events | Comments (0)
It’s that time of year again. The Calder/Caulder Reunion is coming up once again, and I am looking forward to seeing everyone. This year, we will once again be at the Concho Bass Club in San Angelo. The official dates are Saturday, June 21 and Sunday, June 22. Undoubtedly, there will be people around on Friday night as well, for dinner at a local restaurant. There are plenty of hotels in San Angelo, though booking early is always recommended.

As always, please try to bring some type of food to share with everyone.  We’ll be supplying drinks, paper goods, and sandwich makings for lunch on Saturday and Sunday, and meat for Saturday’s dinner.

So that everyone has time to socialize and no one’s day is monopolized with work, please be prepared to help out. People will be needed to set up the hall, organize the meals, cook the meat, and clean up.

We do need to cover our costs for the weekend, and the most reliable fundraiser has been the raffle. Please consider bringing something meaningful, something funny, something special, and most of all, something that will make people buy tickets! We’re not looking for a LOT of stuff; we’re looking for GOOD stuff... so that the raffle can be fairly quick and enjoyable.

Bring your family. Bring food. Bring a camera. Bring games. Bring yourself... have fun... relax... and enjoy spending time with your family.

Questions? Concerns? Ideas? Other stuff? Call me at 240-643-5718 or email me at info@shiteatinggrin.net.

Neighborhood kids

I remember playing “Sheep Beard Down” with all the neighborhood kids: Manuel Abalos, David, Dennis, Michael Wolfe, Debbie, Eddie, Buddy Caulder, sometimes Jane Kay and Eddie Hood. Daddy Would sit on the porch and drink beer and make sure we didn’t argue with each other. We would play till it was too dark to see anything.

Cellar

I remember spending many nights in the cellar. Daddy would stand on the porch and tell you what the clouds and weather might be going to do; then he would rush us off to the neighbors cellar. (He sometimes would wake us in the dead of night and say “Lets Go!”)

Garden

I remember helping Daddy in the garden. I didn’t seem to mind pulling weeds or pickin’ beans. My love of gardening must have come from then.

Green onions

I remember picking green onions straight out of the garden (don’t even remember washing them — just biting the end off and spitting it out) eating the whole thing like it was a piece of candy.

Horned Toads

I remember Hunting Horned Toads (for Mrs. Sockwell? – fifth grade teacher – she was shipping them to Saudi Arabia to kill ants there). We got a nickel a piece for the. Would hunt and hunt. They seemed to be everywhere back then. I haven’t seen one in years. When we had enough money, we would go swimming at the city pool for 25 cents each person. We did the same thing with Coke Bottle – a nickel a piece!
