Won't be long now, boys and girls.
Saturday, May 27th afternoon till the last person decides to leave.
Just a quick update to let you guys know things are moving forward.
Just talked to Sarge a little while ago and we're going to meet my son who's hauling the camper out to Truckhenge sometime this afternoon to start getting things ready.
I've been keeping an eye on the extended forecast and it looks like the weather could be a little dicey this year.
So far there's about a 30% chance of showers with a high of 79.
Never fear. As usual I have a backup plan in case it does rain.
Well, not really.
If it rains we'll either huddle together under the awning or just hang out inside the camper until it passes.
I do recommend you guys bringing a rain coat or an umbrella just in case though.
Unlike year's past we won't have the whole place to ourselves.
I found out a few days ago a DJ friend of the Lessman's will also be having a little get together down by the catfish pond about the same time.
Because of our VIP status Thomas Lessman offered to reschedule the other party if we so desired.
I assured him nobody in our group would have a problem sharing the place with another party.
I did however remind him that we planned on doing a lot of shooting and he assured me there'd be no problem at all with the shooting range.
Just like year's past, Sarge will be providing most of the meat, tables, and chairs.
My family and I will provide the camper, grill, a few more tables and chairs, a big pot of my wife's beef stew, water, soda, cups, plates, bowls, chips, paper towels, trash bags, and whatever else we can think of to drag out there.
The Lessman's will provide the perfect place for us to have our get together. Oh yeah, and Peacocks.
But it comes at a cost.
$200.00 to be exact.
All we ask from you guys is to throw whatever you can into the Mason jar on the table to help Sarge and I cover it.
$5.00, $10.00, $20.00 or what ever you can will be helpful and greatly appreciated.
So far the only one I've been in contact with from that other website is our good friend, The Pink Flamingo lady. She said she'd be out if she can.
As far as Contra goes, the email link he uses on his blogs doesn't work. I've tried letting him know about our get together when he's shown up on one of my blogs over there but so far I haven't heard anything back from him.
Other than that you guys pretty much know the drill.
Bring whatever side dish you want, your choice of beverages, and maybe a lawn chair.
And like always, any family member, like minded friend or neighbor you think might enjoy coming out will be more than welcome.
But for now I gotta get busy.
If I'm not ready by the time Sarge gets here he's gonna have a fit.
