This post from 2012 gives vital information about our yearly sign photo, which must be shared because we nearly had a sign-catastrophe this year. You'll notice our previous photos are all with the sign hung on a lovely fence with that cement ledge for us to pose ourselves on.
Imagine my great angst when arriving at the sale this year to first off NOT SEE THE SIGN AT ALL, bringing out an angry monologue about needing the sign because this year's photo included a new person and thus was very important and how will we survive if this photo tradition has died...and on and on. Finally we saw the sign, but we found it in a most horrific location: right by the doors with the no smoking signs/other random signs/poor lighting/reflections...just an all around not good situation.
(The angst I felt was very similar to how I felt when shopping at Salvation Army last week for used canning jars and finding them being sold for $1.99 and $2.99 each. Robbery! But that is neither here nor there.)
So we made do with our sign photo despite the difficulties. I would encourage the sign people to get it right next year.

The doughnuts were especially good this year, probably because we get smarter each year in our efficiency with them. Remember this fascinating doughnut cutter story from December? What I did not disclose in the story was that I actually bought the last two cutters, one for me and one for my sister to go with her Christmas gift. They came in VERY handy on Saturday.

We missed GAL's family, though, so come back next year, guys!
Why we didn't take a picture with all 5 great grandchildren I'll never know. Except I do know, because David took this picture, not me. A proper cousin photo, plus a better sign photo, is on the list of things to improve on for next year I guess.
