Family Reunion Part 2 [Uncle Michael Post]

When it got dark, everyone moved inside to the basement game room. There was a ping-pong table, a foosball table, a table-table, a nice corner couch and a flat screen TV.

Everyone first surrounded the foosball table.

A lot of times, there was more than one ball on the "field" because someone kept adding balls. If you look closely in the picture below, you can see a ball coming out of Greeley's hand.

Shea spent the time doing what he always did.

No, the truth is, he played foosball, he played ping-pong, and he watched Ben play on his 3DS.

Everyone enjoyed the light switches. Emerson showed us the way but I only caught Atlee doing it.

Because I hadn't taken a lot of pictures, I started to snap some of Greeley.

She helped me by parading back and forth in front of me.

I was about to get a nice one of her when Atlee stood up in between us. Thanks, Atlee. :P

Then Greeley asked if she could use the camera. Being a foolish softie that I am, I handed the camera to her. The first thing she did was take a picture of me. (Regarding my expression: I am watching TV. I'm allowed to be slack-jawed.)

Then she took this interesting photo elbow?

Then she took a picture of some pillows on the floor. There are two of these pictures but I think you get the gist of it.

A couple of minutes later she brought the camera to me and handed it to me. The screen was blue with an hourglass on it and the word "Processing." It does that when I'm changing the memory from internal to a card but not usually for more than a second or two. As I took the camera from her, it kept doing it, so I shut it off. When I turned it on, the Kodak logo came up and the words "Lens" and some numbers appeared. I turned the camera over and discovered the lens was bent and would no long retract. I asked her what happened and she told me but I couldn't hear her as her voice got very low. The picture below is the last one taken. I don't know what that is. I think it might be her hand but she hadn't made a mark on her hand like the one that seems to be in this picture, so...
