Family Reunion, Boy Scout Camp, 1978
Mother and Daddy came to Lovell where I was living in the Sorensen house until I could find something in Powell. We bought lots of groceries, and then they loaded Dorothy, Sara, and Tony and me into the car, too, and away we went to Northfork.
When we arrived at the Boy Scout camp (on the way to Yellowstone Park), we found things in less than perfect shape. Mother simply rolled up her sleeves (they stayed that way during the reunion), pitched in, and marshaled the rest of us, so the kitchen got scrubbed, organized, and ready to go. As people arrived, we were assigned places to sleep (mice scampered around on the floor). There were only outdoor facilities as I recall, but Mother and Daddy did have better facilities, which their years certainly deserved.
