Picnic Grounds

There are only about 100 people who live in Mobeetie, which makes this kind of weird:

  1. One of our neighbors told me that our dads grew up together in Mobeetie, and that his dad remembers my dad. (Sadly, by the time I heard this story, my dad had passed away.)
  2. My across-the-hall work neighbor’s mother grew up in Mobeetie.
  3. My friend Dianne says her husband’s family used to have family reunions at the very picnic grounds where I found this old sink.

That’s a lot of connections for such a tiny place, isn’t it?
