Handgame and Gourd Dance
So whilst you alls wuz gittin ya ski on, and ya bored on, Kenj and I were making a very important, spiritual journey back to my homeland <!-- cue after-school special music -->.
We attended the 50th anniversary doings for my Uncle Lorenzo and Aunt Eva Stabler. We played handgame, I broke my mourning for my mothers death and we gourd danced. We also talked to my Dad's family about coming out for the wedding.
And we've got video! So enjoy. Home video watching being the favorite pasttime of the Fu Crew, at some point we'll bring the whole tape to Marlon's and you'll all have to sit through it.

Thank you for sharing these clips. Mr. They may be home videos of a familiar routine from the life you lived before the life you're living, but they speak of the depth of spirit that connects the two. We of your present life (save for The Kenj) don't get many glimpses of the place and people that set you forth. I am really looking forward to being a part of your wedding.
I am really excited and honored to have peered into the June Coming Happiness via your report. Thank you both!
Rob that is so awesome you got to dance with your dad. I didn't realize he was going to be at the festivities. Good Job!!!
Thanks for sharing this on the site- so cool - I am really looking forward to the wedding!
