Something fairly unusual is coming up in a couple months.  It’s not just the normal Nutjob Hills variety of unusual either.  This is unusual even for here.  There’s a family that’s planning a reunion, one that may well be the largest ever, certainly the largest one I’ve ever heard of.

The reason for this is that, as far as I know, this is the largest extended family I’ve ever heard of.  Most of the members of five generations of this family will be in attendance.  The oldest generation was a family with seven children.  Each of those children went on to have similarly large families and so on for each successive generation.

This family is so large that among the five generation group the birth rate is such that they end up spending a couple thousand dollars a year just on Baptism invitations because there are usually a fairly large percentage of each generation present at such events and I don’t even want to think about how much they spend on travel and accommodations.

This reunion is a good example. Every hotel and motel in the area for fifty miles around is already booked up full in advance just with reunion guests and they’re holding it in the football stadium of a local high school.

Now, aren’t you glad you don’t have to manage THAT kind of a family gathering?
