Dave to Detroit for a Family Reunion

Dave

Dave's parent's were married on the winter solstice (Dec 21, 1946), the darkest day of the year and in the difficult holiday travel season. For two years prior to their 50th Wedding Anniversary, Dave put out the suggestion for a celebration and party, best scheduled in August when flights are readily available, kids aren't in school, and Christmas isn't on everybody's mind.

No plans were made until August was long passed, and even then slipshod ideas were haphazardly put forth and immediately shot down by Dave's mom. With complete disorganization, and completely unanticipated surly and insulting telephone calls, Dave decided to pass on the ridiculous sideshow.

His sister intervened, relating to him a beautiful golden anniversary party she had recently hosted for her in-laws, topped off with showing Dave a beautiful commemorative photo album from that event. She promised him a meaningful and celebratory day, a book of memories and keepsakes, and finally to pay his share of the party if he deemed necessary. Banking on her promises certainly turned out to be a bad investment. Dave flew up for 26 hrs, attended the party, and received no pictures that did not have people putting food in their mouths. At the right is the memento book promised to Dave by his sister.
