Sounds like a commercial that I hear every so often. You might have heard it also. Well, "Family it's about time" is true. I have the blessing of a family hertitage of getting together once a year with other members of my family around my Great Grandfathers birthday (Lovick Pierce Shippey Sr. 6/26/1871-9/29/1949). This is done because he and my Great Grandmother had thirteen (13) children and they all like to be around each other. So, we met and ate and got caught up with 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th cousins. Amazing! Some are getting up in age as we are all doing each day. Here are some pictures that were take of this great group of family members held on 6/21/08 in Dawson GA.
