Small world, indeed, Beth! One Halloween, Stella was to take me out trick or treating through the neighborhood when I was about four years old. She dressed in a pair of George's old ragged overalls, and I was too afraid of her to go! I spent many hours sitting in the swing on their front porch with them.
Yes, the Krout/Weir reunion is still held in the woods every year. There is talk of calling it quits, though, if the woods is no longer available. I have offered my wooded property about four miles away where there is plenty of space in a pole shelter (with kitchen facilities and electricity) as a substitute. However, the older ones don't seem to want to change locations. I'd rather change than not hold the reunion any more. There are still plenty of us who would show up, I'm sure. Cousin Archie Krout can still play a mean fiddle, too!
If my e-mail address is available, please contact me that way. I tend to get gabby and use a lot of space in these forum spaces.
