Saturday night's coming fast and we're going to have a party at my place that'll rival all parties that have ever come before it.
Well, not really.
It's just going to be a simple little get together.
Two of my kids along with their spouses and kids will be there and in case you were wondering all your spouses and kids are more than welcome.
Some of you might remember my son-in-law, Travis. He'll be doing most of the cooking.
Once again all the meat is being supplied by our good friend, Sarge.
I'll bring the buns and my wife is fixing some kind of pasta salad thing.
By now some of you might have figured out I really enjoy a good camp fire and it'll be a good excuse to fire up my much neglected fire pit.
The music, if we decide it's even needed will be courtesy of an old radio I keep in the garage.
Oh, that and Rikki has agreed to bring her guitar.
Hmm, maybe we could talk Nunya into bringing his as well.
Obviously I didn't see the implosion of cjonline coming but the timing of our little gathering couldn't have been better.
And hopefully you guys don't get your hopes concerning my house up too high.
It's just a regular house and a pretty small one at that (1,200 sq. ft) but since the kids grew up and moved on it works just fine for my wife and I. And because I spend so much time on the road there are a lot of projects I haven't quite gotten around to yet.
The most notable one would be the stump in the front yard. I keep telling my wife that, yes, I'll get to it. There's no need to keep reminding me every 6 months about it. Sarge knows the story.
Up until today they were calling for clear skies and everything was good to go.
Today I noticed there's something like a 30% chance of rain.
No big deal.
If it does rain we can either gather on the covered patio or just head into the house.
Regardless of what the weather has in store for us, it's still a go.
I did finally break down and tell my wife about the Happy Birthday for Rosie thing but my kids are still totally in the dark so please don't forget to bring some kind of simple birthday card.
As much as I've been playing up the birthday party for my dog angle this is going to put them over the edge.
Serves them right. Lol.
I have to work that day and unless things change I should be home between 3:00 and 4:00 o'clock.
So Sarge if you still want to come over early make it a little after 4:00 and I'm sure we'll get this thing started.
Other than that I'll see the rest of you around 6:00 Saturday night.
If you have any questions feel free to ask them here, drop me an email, or send up some smoke signals...
