About 1980 the family began meeting at a park on Memorial Day weekend. It is amazing this continued because the first Memorial Day trip was at a cheap hotel near Land-Between the Lakes State Park. It rained all weekend. The hotel was uncomfortable and the food was not good. The next year cabins at the Kentucky Dam State Park were rented. These accommodations were better. The weather was good and the food was better. More activities were planned for the grandchildren. My Dad brought his ski boat. Uncle brought a trailer load of games and equipment. These Memorial Day trips continued for several years at Kentucky Dam State Park or Lake Barkley State Park. Later, a Memorial Day weekend was enjoyed in Gatlinburg and at the large Wallace home in Columbus, MS. Hang the boy, can’t I never learn anything? aren’t he played me tricks enough like that for me to be looking out for him by this time? But old fools are the biggest fools there is. Can’t learn an old dog new tricks, as the saying is. But my goodness, he never plays them alike.
