2009 trip to Texas: Day 10

Saturday morning was cool and partly cloudy. We packed the Chrysler POJ (piece of junk) for the drive back to Dallas.

Never Buy This Car

My cousin Cathy and her husband Ronnie from Victoria made the long drive to the ranch to see us. She’s an ICU nurse and had worked the night shift Friday night, so I really appreciated her making the effort to come see us.

Ronnie commented to me before they left that Cathy would probably be snoring by the time they got to the main road. He paused, thinking about that, and then said “Better than me snoring.”

Here’s another idea for you that we came up with while discussing a possible family reunion for next year. I set up a group on Facebook called Hunt Family Reunion. Only family members can join the group and nothing that we share is visible to nonmembers.

There we can post pictures, videos, announcements, reminiscings, and start discussion threads. When we have enough family members signed up, it will also be a resource for the extended family. From trying to figure out where some family heirloom ended up to requesting information about a genetic disease, this Facebook group could prove valuable.

If you’re a Hunt family member, search for Hunt Family Reunion on Facebook and request to join. If you do not have a Facebook account, you can create one while providing only a bare minimum of information. There’s no need to share your life story just to join Facebook.

Tomorrow we meet Bryan in Fort Worth.
