    I'm off to go "Up North"!

    This weekend is the "Shockman Family Reunion" in Collegeville, MN. All the Shockmans from around the country get together every 5 years or so for 3-4 days of fun, activities, family storytelling (LOTS of stories - I come from a family of 11 kids and my father came from a family of 15) and general good times! This year some of the activities include a St. Cloud Riverbats minor league baseball game (and probably a Shockman family game - I think we have enough to field several teams :lol, a dance, family history night, and many other things.

    SOOOOO, the point is - I will be out of touch probably until Tuesday morning. See ya all when I get back! I may post some pictures if anyone wants to see them...

    **By the way, there'll be about 140 of us there. Can you imagine 140 of me in one place???

    Greetings, all! Just had to check in from "Up North"! Things are going well - had a great time at the introductory dinner last night. Today it's the family history tour (had relatives that grew up in this area) and tonight it's the dance. Later all!

    Sounds like a great time! Have fun and enjoy the reunion. Family reuniions are always a trip, you hang out with a bunch of people that you probably wouldn't hang out with if you weren't related. Fun times.
