Terry Lynn and I got down to Up Yonder 2007 (Summersville) for the Hughes/Foster (Bailes) Reunion http://family.webshots.com/album/559762165gZbdps. I am so glad Rock and Dad got us "reconnected" with this wonderful bunch of family.
On August 4, Dad's birthday, many of the Bailes clan gathered at "the Farm" for swimming, rootbeer, a hayless ride, mountain climbing. "Uncle Steve" thought it was great to see the new generation building new traditions, and continuing some of the old.

No Hollywood agents have contacted Steve yet, but he's still waiting. In October he was on Ch. 70, the Style Network, "Married Away". He led the couple who were married at Ice Mt. and the TV crew They were speaking over my cameos, so I guess they were most impressed with my good looks rather than my elocutionary prowess.

mosquito nets in Africa in conjuction with the NBA and Sports Illustrated.

We are very saddened to hear , cousin, Eloyce Trader, apparently had a massive stroke and is not expected to recover. Some of Steve's earliest and fondest memories involve this mischievious lady. Eloyce is the daughter of the late Lyle and Alma Parsons, wife of Bud, mother of Hal and Kim, and granma to Jake, Erin and Evan. We will miss her tremendous spirit.
