Saturday, April 8, 2017

When I first began this blog, I posted the Imm genealogy as I knew it.  That was in 2008. Over the years, many changes have occurred in every generation.  More data and corrections have been made to the large Imm volumes printed in my possession.  If you asked for a correction but don't see it here, it's because I can't figure how to change the posts, but know that in the volumes, the corrections/changes are made.. those volumes go to the annual Imm reunion each year.

IMM REUNION 2013-down on the farm

 It rained in the morning, but by afternoon it seemed dry enough to continue with the picnic for our IMM family.  I can't remember one where it rained.. but this one was not only wet, but chilly.
Paul Blair spent most of the past year building a hay wagon that could be totally disassembled so that it fit on a trailer along with the refrigeration table he'd worked on and the milking cow "Lucy" that he borrowed from the Butler Farm Extension office.
 This is what it looks like all packed up with the tractor too

 Our theme this year..
 Our chicken had lots of eggs with trinkets and candies inside
 Paul hooking up the haywagon
 Guess how many?  and some for prizes too
 Assembled haywagon complete with hay
 Anyone who wanted a ride climbed up the steps in the rear
of the wagon (Paul thought of everything)
 Paul 3 getting ready to assemble our milking cow

 Paul's friend Drew helped him so much, we invited him and
his family to the reunion.  He assembled the refrigeration 
table and helped with calling the Chinese auction ticket numbers..
We made him an honorary Imm for the day
 Joyce,Annabelle,Amy Blair

 Jane wore her red hat.. This was the refrigeration table
