For over two years Pedar's very large Norwegian Remme family has been planning a family reunion. This past weekend over 50 people gathered at Camp Ocean Pines in Cambria, CA. People traveled as far as North Carolina, Washington, Oregon and Minnesota. What did the group do all weekend? We ate, we talked, we laughed and we got to know one another better. The Remme family is a fun bunch of people and you know what, anyone is welcome to be a Remme!
My favorite part of the weekend was the Ole and Lena joke-off! Cousin Skip Holmes researched over 50 Ole and Lena jokes and handed them out. The person that delivered the joke the best, won! Skip was hilarious and it was great fun watching family members tell and flub-up their jokes!
Here is a sample of an Ole and Lena joke:
Remember the article in Ole’s newspaper:"North Dakota 's worst air disaster occurred today when a Cessna 152, a small 2 seater plane, crashed into a Norwegian Lutheran Church cemetery here early this morning.. "Ole and Sven, working as a search and rescue team, have recovered 826 bodies so far and expect the number to climb as digging continues into the evening."
