I think that was the year that Russell made the raisin and ketchup cookies. Sounds bad, but they were actually quite tasty.

I'll take Bonine family history for $2000, Alex....

I've been trying to get my hands on that recipe for a couple of years.

It was the only time that I won a wooden spoon!

"Correct! Make one of them give you a cookie!"

Give a man a cookie and he eats for a minute. Give a man a recipe for a cookie and he can have his wife make him a whole batch.

Now Mary - be fair. Russell will probably make his own batch.

Amorette - your mom was such a good sport to come judge cookies, take pictures and write stories about those cook-offs, and numerous other events.

If the Bonine family was like our family, you needed a lot of wooden spoons. Mom kept breaking our wooden spoons on us boys' rear ends! (well, not mine, I was perfect)

Next time the Library does trivia night, they should have a Bonine category.

I was going to say that those ketchup and raisin cookies couldn't be beat. But after reading the recipe, I stand corrected.

From an outsider, how many Bonine's are there?

My grandparents moved to Miles City in the forties and had several businesses on Main St. My parental unit had 13 kids. There is nearly a quarter of a century between the oldest (myself) and my youngest brother. I may have one niece who still lives in , but the rest of us have moved and are scattered to the ends of the earth. Most all of us were in 4-H and FFA, and other things in school.

Richard: Russell and Mary were in the Prairie Scooters 4-H Club when Betty Randall and I were the organizational leaders. Where are Russell and Mary and what are they doing these days?

Because there is already a thread with our name on it....
Let this post serve as a thirty day notice to the citizens of Miles City and the surrounding area that the Bonine clan will be converging in their hometown for a long-awaited and much-anticipated family reunion.
Prepare accordingly!

"Liz-the-Wiz" makes it sound like the Rainbow Family is coming to town. It's not that bad.

Please keep us informed regarding the whereabouts of the gathering so that some of us who had "investments" in the union that started all this can meet and greet.

Hmmm...sounds like a story I perhaps haven't ever heard.

I have always thought it a shame that one of us Bonine boys didn't have the vision to marry one of the many cute Zook girls and another marry a Baldwin... the whole county would have been officially related.

Saw an excess of Boninage at the Range Riders yesterday for lunch! Hope you all had a good time. The hot rolls were very tasty. The kitchen workers snitched a few before we put them on the tables!

I also want to say thanks to Tab Fleming and his crew for the great lunch today in the park. The potato salad was the best I have ever eaten. I like to get the recipe for that if I could. Great Job.
