Message:  Joey,

When we first started discussing getting everyone together after Mickey died...seems that eight or ten of us were in the "Pool" (Live Chat) every night and the term "Gathering" was used there all the time...so while I wasn't at the Cottage Grove event, some of the folks who were there called the planned event in Austin a
"Gathering".

It couldn't be a "Reunion" because 90% of us had never met. It could have been a "Gaggle" or a "Pride", or a "Flock", but checking with Mr. Webster, the term Gathering just seemed to fit.

"To cause to come together" "To harvest the product of the earth" "To worship with friends"

As Karen said...."Shall we Gather at the River", only it's the Brazos, not the Jorden.
