MacLean Farm Site for June Dallas '61 Social
Sunday, June 5th. John and Carol
Jean MacLean invited the Dallas/Fort Worth area Classmates to their farm about 50 miles ESE of Dallas
Texas. Dave Eaton, Sheryl and
Bud Fritz, R J Wooten, Pam and Jerry Clement, and Susie and Gabe Gabriel made it to the farm.
It was a beautiful, sunny day. Everyone enjoyed the opportunity to catch up with each other on what they had been doing
recently. For Sheryl and Bud and Susie and Gabe it was another close encounter, the Tuesday before they ran into each other in
a Pizza store in Charlotte, NC. All four of them were there visiting with their grandchildren and treating them to Pizza.
There was a lot of conversation, some old stories, some new stories and loads of good food.
Everyone decided that they would not worry about how much they ate. It was all so good and so they had to try some of
everything. John and Carol Jean went way above and beyond in providing for everyone.
As the sun got lower in the sky everyone moved out on the east side of the house and enjoyed the wonderful weather, throwing
a stick in the creek for Missy to fetch, which she did and did and did. Next John brought out a 28 gauge shotgun and a 20 gauge
shotgun to let everyone have a try at skeet shooting. John did not embarrass us by shooting, he just manned the machine that
tossed the clay pigeons. Everyone got a chance to shoot. Gabe walked off with the Davy Crockett award and Susie got the Annie
Oakley award. It was a lot of fun.
People then went inside to eat around a large table. In addition to the brisket, there were ribs and sausage. To finish
the evening off there was home made ice cream. What a wonderful day was had by all.
