Wow Maggie, what a cool idea! Yes Dots, do the scrapbooking thing. Maggie could teach a class on it, and my guess is that you could get a company who sells the materials to donate "stuff" for the class too, in hopes that the students would go out and buy their products!

I've never done this, but a girlfriend of mine has and boy, she has really done a lot of it. Course, she is real disciplined too.

I would be interested in knowing what your Aunt donated to a museum...what kinds of things?

Maggie, your gatherings with your aunt...have you been traveling, or is she in town?

I wish I had written more when Mom was alive. I find myself wishing I had paid closer attnetion to the details of her stories from younger days. [Frown]

Maybe I should get Dad to write some things down for us, or better yet get my son to video him telling stories. Hmmm.

Lynn, I love the box idea for a 50th. Ross turns 50 next August. I might have to steal your idea.

All the ideas here are wonderful. I too love the box, wish I had known of it sooner.
My aunt lives in Lakeview which is in the middle south of Oregon. It takes nine hours to get there so we made a nice vacation and took five days. She lived on a ranch for years and had donated her husbands saddle. That was what she wanted us to see. My grandmother had donated an organ which was always in the spare bedroom where we kids slept or played. There were family pictures on top of the organ.
When my aunts and father were growing up they lived on a ranch near Indians. There are a lot of items donated from their camp and the ranch. My husband and I both enjoy hanging out in museums so thoroughly enjoyed it but it was more fun to hear her stories about everything.
Yes, on the classes at a convention that sounds like fun.

Dotsie I love the video taping idea. One of my cousins did this with grandma and I will always treaure that tape. He had prepared a lot of questions so it was easier to keep her talking.
Reunions with family and friends like you've talked about are a wonderful way to do this. I think my grandmothers brother was also taped at the reunion.We didn't get to go to the reunion but I sent over a lot of geneology and family history. my mother was in the hospital at the time. He and I shared the same birthday so it was neat to see and hear him again. We sent cards for a long time. I have the last one he sent me after our son was born. I get so excited about all this stuff.

The plan is to have BWS convention after the first obok is published.

It will probably be in Baltimore since tha'ts where I'm from. How's that sound to you Lynn? YOu should be able to come and you won't even have to fly. [Wink]

Maggie, a scrapbooking session would be great. I'll add that to my folder of ideas.

Okay, okay, scrapbooking is fine, but what about the CHIPPENDALE DANCERS?

If they don't get to come they'll be so disappointed. Poor things. I'm sure they were just dying to see us too.

Smile

P.S. And hey, what about the boomer road trip? And our nude calendar?
Where is JJ? I need some support here.

Let's keep the chippendales too. It all sounds like fun.

yuhoo SMILES...here I am girl. Sorry, but I've been away this weekend...with the Chippendales...getting things lined up for the convention.

Would I lie to you? You know I would rather walk on my lips than tell a lie, right?
