Hi Everyone, If anyone is interested I would like to make one DVD of all photo's taken of this past reunion. If anyone with pictures could make a CD rom of them as JPEG files and mail to PO Box 307, Worthing, SD 57077 by September 30th. I will create a DVD with each families photos on it so everyone can see all the pictures. Had a great time and can't wait to do it again.

I hope the reunion went well, and sorry we couldn't be a part of it! If there is a group photo I can post it here. I just renewed this domain name for another year, so I will keep this site going, and will try to keep the Viagra vendors off!

Hi all!! I was wondering if this site has an option to start the list of people that will be joining the gathering? Maybe adding the dates, and location etc. Barb and I will be at the Newton Fork Ranch (Hill City) July 25 arrival and July 30 departure.

Hi everybody! Sorry I haven't checked in here for a while. As you know, after talking to Jon, Craig, Matt, and all my brothers,and of course Uncle Mike and Uncle Jim. I found out how fantastic being married is, and I couldn't wait any longer to do it myself! So and did, and they were absolutely correct. (Uncle Jim, your advice came in particularly handy!) Of course our schedule is up in the air (literaly) this summer. We are going to make every effort to be at the reunion, or at least attend a portion of it. I'll talk to you all soon! Love, JimmyD

Since Waterfall's are unable to make it to the reunion Mike's and I will have extra room. We had reserved the big house so have one empty bedroom and 2 fold out couchs. Anyone interested let us know. Am I the only one that reads this web site?

Glad to see some activity thought everyone was asleep or something. Of course some of us have an excuse because of a wedding by the way welcome Francie to the group if you can put up with Jim you'll have no problem with the rest of us. Looking forward to meeting new members of our bunch. I and who knows how many grandkids will be staying at Clamity. Also Craigs family and Jons family. Getting excited. Love Mary

Happy New Year - a tad bit late! I love reading about all of the Family traditions. I talk with our kids a lot about the holidays when I was growing up in Virginia - that's about the only way to keep Mom & Dad close...Things that I remember - Each year we would go out looking for Santa and miraculously, when we returned home we just missed him! That was exciting! We did not have very many presents but everything we got was PERFECT! How did Santa know! Every Christmas Eve we had fondue, which is our family tradition after Mass. Dan, Jon, and Katie look forward to it as much as I do. Then there were many Midnight Masses struggling to stay awake - I remember David and I falling asleep and then jerking awake to find in the pews around us staring! I laugh just thinking about it. There was tip toeing to peak at the presents under the tree - as we got older we developed the art of unwrapping and rewrapping perfectly! What makes me want to laugh and cry at the same time is the memory of watching Mom and Dad (Sally & Jim) trying to figure out what presents were for each kid! Their tricky wrapping techniques made that a challenge. Dan and I go through the same thing and we only have two kids! If only I could tell Dad that I often find gifts in hiding days after the holiday! One Christmas Dad got Mom three different robes-he had started his shopping early and forgot! He was so funny. That wasn't as bad as finding a stinky Easter egg two weeks later! Thank goodness for memories! Lots of love to all.

Every Christmas (although it's almost New Years in most time zones) I remember huge Christmas Eve parties with family and friends at home in Utah. I remember the Dominguez's would come every year from up the road, our next door neighbors, and most especially one of my brothers would be on leave from the Navy and we would all be together, all 5 brothers with Mom and Dad. I remember Jake Duncan as a baby with a little Santa hat on as well as nagging Brian years before if Santa had come yet, there's Midnight Mass with Jim petting a fur coat in the front pews as well as calling him on a spanking I wouldnt get but surely got and probably deserved, I remember me and Jeff playing new computer games (Platoon Sergeant, who would have thought!), and Mike the weeks before he left for boot camp and what seemed our last holiday in 1986/87, January 12, 1987 to be precise. It wasn't always that all my brothers were able to be home and I remember when I was on leave from Army training in 1994 that I was excited to wear my own dress uniform and accompany our mother to midnight mass. What I remember most during Christmas and the holidays were getting together and hearing the stories of when my brother's were younger and there was a "charge" at the Christmas tree and the older brothers beat out in the morning and the stories of Christmas aboard a Submarine. I remember going with my Dad around the 15th of December to get a Christmas tree and being in the carport sawing off the base and climbing in the attic to get the Christmas ornaments and tree stand. I remember what a nuisance it was to remember to water the tree, because it was my job. In any case, many blessings in the New Year (Alles Gute in German) and best wishes.

I remember one Christmas, living in the little white house,possibly the year Mom was pg with Milde. Every other Christmas we would go out Christmas Eve. to deliver care packages to those less fortunate and surprise that was the very time Santa chose to deliver our presents. I guess we were wondering how he was going to come when we were home when we heard aloud noise on the back porch, we ran out and there was a big bag with all of our presents. We had to wait a few minutes for Dad to get home to open them. But I remember the thrill thinking Santa had found a way. Christmas was much simpler then centered around church,that was the big deal to be in the church activities. We always got a new pair of pj's which were welcome because our old ones were quite worn by Dec. I don't remember any toys. I know we received some but guess none of them were important enough to remember. Celebrated with just our family and always had a big meal on Christmas Day. Anybody else have some memories to share?

WOW! What a beautiful tribute. Just want to wish everyone a Wonderful Christmas and a Blessed New Year. Here we are literly from one coast to the other. We may be separated by miles but not by love, caring, thoughts and prayers. Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night.

Merry Christmas. As we receive cards and pictures from everyone I realize that the pictures of the five kids were always our Christmas card. Each one of the pictures reveals a little bit about the time the photo was taken and what was being celebrated. Clearly, the pictures weren't always in December. But as one of the those five kids looking in at us looking out I realize it was dad taking the picture and mom possibly trying to get us to smile or simply watching. Undoubtedly dad would have done the arranging. The poignant part for me is when I think of all that was to come in our lives that we couldn't have known then. As I look at all the beautiful pictures of our children and our nephews and neices and their children I marvel at the strong human spirit we've been blessed with. The Christmas story is such a radical story: people submitting to requirements by a government, making a difficult journey, rejected by many who could have helped, and finally, comforted by the lowest members of society while new life emerged and warmed by the breath of animals. I find myself conflicted by all the myths of how we should celebrate this time of year. My students all talked of the crankiness at home, and the worry that no one would be satisfied, and the pressure to be the perfect family. I think back to the family that I grew up with and now, looking into those five faces looking back I marvel. When the darkness of the world overwhelms us, look at all the shoulders we have to lean on in the dark. Perhaps we can celebrate the holidays in a radical way that suits the original radical story. All those faces that now adorn our refrigerator are the legacy of these pictures of these five kids, taken by a man whose love for them is so clear in so many ways.

FYI Barb suggested that we nominate Grandma Moye for S.D. Hall of Fame. Every year they choose a number of people to be in the hall of fame. Those of you that get the SD Magazine can read about last years. Those that don't can barrow or perhaps subscribe(contact Barb) Anyway it involves some research on our part. Any suggestions or advice is welcome. Also any stories you have. Requirements are that they have contributed to SD. Certainly Mom qualifies. Love Mary

The fact that eastern South Dakota was hit so catastrophically following the Thanksgiving holiday is significant. Could it be that the higher power recognizes the effects on morality brought on by massive consumption of jello salad?

Unles it's acid rain, which causes acidification of lakes and streams and contributes to damage of trees at high elevations (for example, red spruce trees above 2,000 feet) and many sensitive forest soils.

I think most of my group wants to climb Harney at least the older ones. Laura has said she wants to see those faces "FOR REAL" As for me I'll be happy if everyone else is happy. Just want to see everyone and meet the new members. You know make new friends but keep the old!!!! Also heve a request for prayers--One of Jon's buddies from high school lives in Rapid and his 14yr old son had an accident ramping on his bike and has been in a coma for going on three weeks--had a brain bleed and they have done surgery twice to stop the bleeding. So if everyone would send up some prayers it would be great.

Snow has all ready fallen in the Black Hills this fall sooner than leaves have fallen elsewhere, a reminder that winter is not far away. With winter close, how quickly will next summer arrive? It's not too early to begin thinking of what you want to do and see during the reunion. Every member of each family is encouraged to pick their own druthers because it's likely that one or more other clan members will want to do the same thing. Once you have picked a few possible adventures, e.g Mt. Rushmore, Evan's Plunge, Deadwood, Harney Peak, whatever, you can post it here to see who else might have the same idea. A good place to look at most possibilities is www.blackhillsbadlands.com

Got a joke- Polish guy goes in for a job interview and the boss doing the interview doesnt have any ears. The boss says, "We need you to be very critical when it comes to details about people so I need you to make an observation about me." The Polish guy says, "Sure, I can see that you don't have any ears." The Polish boss gets all upset, cursing and screaming and throws the guy out. An Italian and a Canadian go in, say the same thing to the boss and get the same exact result. Finally, an Irishman comes in and the boss tells him to make an observation about him. So,the Irishman says, "You wear contacts." The boss says, "That's amazing, how astute of you, how could you tell?!" The Irishman says, "It was easy, you must wear contacts, you dont have any ears!"

Far be it from me to criticize the Missus, but in the interest of historical accuracy, I must point out that my wife mischaracterized ole Abe. Could be that it's the press of having a drunken husband and too many chillun. Abe Barnes never had a saloon. In fact he was a teetotaler. Wouldn't touch the stuff. She regularly drug me out of George Palmer's saloon, butAbe just came there to play cards when he hauled freight into town from Kearney Junction, Nebraska. Whoops! Gotta go, here she comes with that infernal broom again

If there'd been an examination
You surely would have passed
'Tis a trick of mine
To hide a line
And that line's always the last.
The trick worked well on paper
Where I'd make a little fold
At poem's end
The paper you'd bend
The punchline to behold.
It's different on the internet
You know what I mean
And so it goes
'Cause no one knows
-----fold here-------

How to fold a screen!

To read your poetry.
‘Cause what’s the use of writing
Something so inviting,
If there’s no one there to share,
If there’s no one there to care.
But tell me Poet.
Tho I think that now I know it.
When you finish up so fine,
Don’t you like to hide a line?
And isn’t that line the last?
Don’t answer me too fast.

The Lord created all things, we know
Wonderful things that bring us great joy
For us He made rain, and He made the snow
He made the warm sunlight
The twilight's soft glow
Flowers of great beauty
For us to watch grow
He created tall trees
and bushes so low
The twinkling stars and the moon all aglow
The sunrise so perfect
The cool morning dew.
There's just on thing that puzzles me:
Why'd He make you?

Joe's FOB is really forward, minimally operating and quite base. In his words, "picture tents and piles of dirt." What in the name of God are you doing out there? Is this because you never had a sandbox to play in? In other news, I was speaking with JimmyD, whose name I won't reveal, having lately learned of his January plans to add someone else to the reunion list, and our conversation naturally turned to libation and the challenge laid down between the Hansons and Duncans. (No other entrants have come forward.) We both agreed that anyone found agroof during the proceedings will be immediately disqualified. Also, a storytelling contest will be running concurrent to the libation contest, so choose your stories and storytellers carefully.

For that reason, I'm praying that I misunderstood Aunt Milde's not attending comment. Your love and fun are needed for the week to be a success! Love, Pam.

Happy Birthday to Grandma also! By the way Matt, you and Craig are on, but you better bring some lunch! That's cool about the pbr! Remind me to tell you the stories of when I was a kid and Grandma would take me to Sturgis.

Happy Birthday Grandma Moye!! I'm thinking that Craig and I can take on any other two person drinking team! Speaking of having a cold one.. When I was little Grandma Moye and I would spend New Years together drinking a couple of (PBR's) Papst Blue Ribbon in her appartment. Here's to you Grandma! Oodles of Love!

Does anyone miss me?!? ;) Happy birthday Grandma. Keep up the good work!! I'm with Jeff. The drinking contest is nowhere near a fair contest. Hell, the only prep work I can get is smuggled goods, and even then a risky endeavor living with Hodgie half my time!! But, I'll do my best! If Jim and Milde aren't coming, does that count out the boys?! Have they weighed in on the event yet? Still trucking out here on the border. New humor everyday. Plenty of stories for the reunion!

Today is Grandma Moye’s birthday. She would be 97 years old today. Happy Birthday, Grandma. It would make her smile broadly to know that the whole family is planning to gather in the Hills next year, bringing branches together that have been separate too long. She loved all her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren and knew firsthand how personal wounds, real or imagined can divide us. I miss her. I hope I don’t miss any of you.

I'm sorry to hear that! Who's going to lead in the fun? I guess I could step up to the plate! Ok everybody, no more fishing derby,we are going to have a drinking contest! We can give prizes for different catagories. Who can stay lit for the duration of the reunion? We could team up by family! The first night is Beer. The second night is Whiskey, the third night is wine, and then we start the rotation over again. We could all pitch in and first prize a free weekend at the Ritz Carlton in San Diego Ca.

A couple of blondes were driving through Louisiana when they came to a sign that told them they were almost to Natchitoches. They argued all the way there about how to pronounce the name of the town. Finally they stopped for lunch. After getting their food, one of the blondes said to the cashier, "Can you settle an argument for us? Very slowly, tell us where we are." The cashier leaned over the counter and said: "Buuurrrrrr-Gerrrrrr Kiiiinnnnnggg"

Hey, I want to be on the discussion police! Where do I apply? I feel that I'm qualified because of my time spent in the Navy, and the fact that I have dedicated my life to offending mormons!(I hope I didn't offend any mormons out there) I'm looking forward to the reunion, and staying with the Hanson kids. I'll get with Ben and Samantha and figure out which Holiday we'll sponsor, I'm thinking Ramadan!

First come first serve if you need a space to call home during the reunion let me know and I'll put your name on it. Looks like Jimmy Duncan will be the papa bear in the Hanson kids cabin.

Katie, those are great ideas. Pay no attention to Calamity. She's smoked one too many cigars and needs a bath. Okay, everybody, take stock of your talents and decide which ones can be shown in a family talent show. Let us know here what you might have in mind and we don't want no fish stories or I'll have to meet you downtown.

I have an idea about what we can do... I think maybe we could have a talent show on one of the nights. We could just find a big open space. Everybody does not have to participate, but I think that would be fun. The people in the show can play instruments, dance, sing, joke around, and just have FUN! Another idea is that we could have a biggest fish contest, and the winner can win something. I'm not sure what they could win yet but we could get a ribbon or something like that. Does anyone else think these are good ideas?!?!

I have problems with emails lately, so could someone get my old man engaged on locking on something for me? If not, I'll just bring cots. ;) Too bad about the parade, Clancy and I could have made a hell of a float. Maybe we'll have our own parade....

okay. Units 8 and 9 are secured at Calamity Peak for July 26 to the 30, 2006. They have a fully equipped kitchen. Gold Discovery Days is the week before so no parade while we are there. Holidays? I vote for Christmas, Easter, Halloween, Thanksgiving, and the Fourth of July. Last time we had Christmas, Duncans had Halloween, Hansons had Thanksgiving, and Moyes had Fourth of July. Who wants to coordinate this? We can switch or keep the same, makes no difference to us. Jim has requested a fishing derby as well. Anyone wanting rooms should call 1-800-591-5949 and talk with Dave. They will have a new unit 10 which will be availabe when we're there. http://www.blackhills.com/calamitypeak/

You guys are too, too good. I love that squirrel. Mary's computer is in the shop so I'm keeping her posted by phone. I'll call Calamity this morning and put my card down for the lodge and the room above it as our base. Mike and Kathy, Mary, Jim and I can put our feet down there and then we can have "events" on site if we desire. These dates - July 26 throughJuly 30. I'll find out if they still supply pots and pans etc or if we need to work on that. Then someone needs to contact that camp place across the road and get that nailed down too. Then it's everyone for him or herself. They can get digs at either of these or anywhere they want. Now, who wants to coordinate what holidays we celebrate and which family has what dates? AND, do we want a float in GD Days parade? That means another coodinator, right?

Jeff and Heather, thank you for this meeting place. I checked into Game Lodge and there's nothing available to meet our needs for the last week in July. I looked at American Presidents, and that could work, but I remember that some members of the clan had objections. Calamity Peak Lodge is a sentimental favorite, but no one has checked out avaiability yet. I think first thing to settle on is the week. Last week in July is our vote.
