Marvin's real name is not Marvin. He is Harvey Robert Teague, III. He doesn't like to be called Marvin, so I call him Marvin. He's a good kid.

Activities at Reunion

Besides eating and drinking, the two things at which we all seem to excel , the family group also played BINGO for marvelous prizes.

There were also games of Cornhole, a game which has taken the area by storm. It is similar to horseshoes in that teams of two toss things for point. Each team has four bean-bags in a team color. Two oposing team members stand at each end of the court and alternate in tossing the bean bags at the board at the other end of the court. A bag in the hole counts as three points, on the board counts as one point. If each team makes a score on the board, they cancel each other. (Didn't explain tht very well but I hope you get the idea.)

We also celebrated Mom's 87th birthday. Her birthday is June 6 but we celebrate the first Saturday of June just to make it easy. She gets around pretty well for a person of her age.

Five Generations

Posted by Picasa
On June 2, 2007, we had our family reunion in Hamilton, Ohio. Mostly it is our immediate family - sisters, brothers, nieces and nephews and their respective spouses- but some times cousins from both sides also show up.

This is my mother with my sister Mary, her son Woody, his daughter Lesha and her children Johnathan and Tiffany representing five generations.

Elisa Tubbs, Attorney-at-Law

My old buddy Elisa graduated from LSU law school in May. The bar exam will be in the latter part of July. The ol' gal said she's going to have to buckle down and study hard so she can pass on the first try.

Her mother had a little party to celebrate the accomplishment. Here are a few photos.

1.) Husband Keith and Elisa with her new laptop case.

2.) Rusty and Jessamye, Elisa and Keith's daughter and son-in-law.

3.) Sue Badeaux, Elisa's proud mother.

4.) David, Elisa and Keith's son who was home on leave from the US Army at the time. He is probably back in Iraq now. Wish him luck.
