I was brought up in a genuinely socially dynamic family.
First, the family is large so the numbers at gatherings were typically big.
You either got in there and mixed it up or you didn’t go at all. And we, as a group, are loud gregarious people. This has not changed a single bit now that I am an adult. The only thing is that now the family gathers at our arena. My wifey and I have no children and live on a giant farm. It’s honestly an awesome spot. I have a wonderful giant barn that I even air conditioned with an Heating, Ventilation & A/C central air unit. Calling it a barn is a bit of a misnomer. While a small area of it does have stalls for our horses, the rest of the space is finished off quite nicely. I collect old video games from our youth. They are in there along with ping pong, a pool table and a honestly cool fully functional bar. It’s appreciate a woman cave however greater. We host our family gatherings here. We celebration as a family at least once every few months. Having the Heating, Ventilation & A/C in the barn honestly helps while I was in the summer. People can come inside and get cool before they go back out for whatever game is going on. Well, this last gathering the people I was with and I decided on a whim to take a group picture. The picture was on the side of the barn and someone threw a tarp over the Heating, Ventilation & A/C condenser unit. I knew nothing about it. The tarp ended up staying on the Heating, Ventilation & A/C device until it finally broke down from no air flow.
