or, screwballs in redneck heaven or 3 guys, grits ( girls raised in the south) and a brit.  all these titles would work. we had a blast! ok, here's who attended---pelicangal ( bless your heart), jnb (get out of the water sharks eat at night). cindylepp ( 3 full  carts at the condo), stacy ( i'm gonna go lie flat, meaning i'm going to lie down and another---was you raised by wolves),  arich ( my mother and i can beat all ya in beach volleyball---they could too!), shari ( and husband, phil) , tim ( i'm gonna buy beer no one can pronounce.) quite a collection of squirrel chow! did i mention we had a blast?! many blogs will follow, i'm sure, so i'll leave the details for others and being tech-challenged the pictures will show up in other blogs. btw, folks that recieve "prizes" must take a picture with "prize." this was a TRUE  toss-up, a flip of a coin. drum roll---freak flag goes to robogranma!! hickey face and i've got great suction. just kinda worked. ask her about that!! ya gotta see the picture...nothing dirty...so be still! pelicangal was the other side of the coin...even with all her demerits...no bribing the judges...lol! cindylepp is also going to recieve a prize for being the relocation director. to all ya that missed this insane aslyum...plan for next year! prepare yourself for many pictures from a sunburnt and fat time!

Congrats Robin. A great time was had by all. I will definitely do a blog that shows the hickey face. I have a pretty good picture. I miss you all already and am ready for next year. I love you all. P.S. GDerr, did you forget that I was the only one to NOT yell at you when you got lost for the third time. (I should have got extra points for the freak flag for that, I EXPECT to have those extra points already in the bag for next year)

What a description of everyone. LOL!!! I look forward to more details and maybe someday I will be able to attend....

jan, you get demirets AGAIN for even trying to influence the judge! yeah, 2 gps' and 3 women...hmmmmm!! love ya sweetie ! tel jerry i can give him some early wake-up calls if needed.
 
Sep. 23, 2012 6:42 pm
hi ladysparkes! yes the package arrived the same day most of us had shown up by. so everyone got to choose which one they wanted. i think claire got the nicest :). it was so kind of you to do that! you would love robogranma...she is quite a knitter/ seamtress!
 
Sep. 23, 2012 6:45 pm
hi misty, those things were really said/done by the screwballs! don't even ask about me. oh, trying to teach a british woman southern speak almost proved impossible. all except the part where you can say something totally inappropiate and follow up the remark with, " bless your heart."
 
Sep. 23, 2012 7:08 pm
pouting here.....missed great time :( Glad you guys had fun though :)
 
Sep. 23, 2012 7:13 pm
Can't wait for the pics! Hickey face??? The imagination wonders.
 
Sep. 23, 2012 7:32 pm
My mind is running a little on the wacky side right now trying to figure out what all this means. I think it means that everyone had a really good time----I mean, really good. I can't wait to hear from someone else, though----sorry Gary. :)
 
Sep. 23, 2012 7:40 pm
Such a tease!! Sounds like you all had a Hoot and Holler! Look forward to hearing the details!

Sep. 24, 2012 10:13 am
hi bibi! so much to tell!! the other folks wil see another perspective, with pictures. yeah, this is the tip of an iceberg!
 
Sep. 24, 2012 7:13 pm
So surprised robograndma got the freak flag ;) . Have got to see what beautiful things LS sent , and must know what pelicangal did to earn demerits , and , what in the world did cindylepp have in three carts ! I also want to know , if after drinking the un-pronounceable beer , did anyone have to go " lie flat " ?? Sounds like soo much fun . Awaiting the " rest" of the story :)
 
Sep. 24, 2012 7:35 pm
hi lumpy! oh yeah...it was tough. there was a 3 wat going for a-while until staci left...then down to robin and jan who wrestled all night... ya missed some great folks! i'm still laughing at some of the things said...ok, enough said.

Sep. 25, 2012 5:52 am

LadySparkle I hope you don't mind but not all the wonderful dishclouths went home from the beach. I felt that the condo needed a pick me up and gifted two to the hearts to use at the beach. Your kindness the love lives on in PCB. Thank you Robin.

I knew Robograndma would win the freak flag...she definitely deserved it. I have one throw away camera to get developed and still have the waterproof one to finish up & then develop. THEN, perhaps we can show these things in picture form, lol...I had a blast and cant wait til next year!!

We are finally home from our month trip around Florida...the Southern round-up was a real blast and we met some really great folks. I'll post photos soon. Gderr and ARich...you did a wonderful job! robograndma we love our treats from you and we decided to to keep our heart potholder in our camper, I really enjoyed chatting with you....we really did have a great time.
 
Sep. 28, 2012 5:46 pm
robin...i WILL call your hubby!
 
Sep. 28, 2012 5:51 pm
sherri it's about time you checked in! i was thinking ya started driving west and forgot where wireless was available. the pot-holders were from lady sparkle. robo made coozies...her mind was already in redneck round-up mode. gotta love these gals! ya left TOO early. another round-up next year to see who has gained the most weight!
 
Sep. 29, 2012 7:07 am
Sounds like ya'll had a crazy good time. I had to read through your blog twice though. Gary, you just crack me up! Can't wait for the pictures and the other accounts. BTW, I have to agree with my fellow Oregonian, Miss Pelicangal.... come on Gary, give her those points!
 
Sep. 29, 2012 9:00 am
hi candice! jan was certainly at point a head, but robin pulled it out by the hicky face and what she said caused it...lmao!
 
Sep. 29, 2012 7:45 pm
Sherri I wish I could claim the potholder but that was a gift from ladysparkle I can only dream of doing such nice work.
 
Sep. 29, 2012 7:47 pm
Gary I got my t-shirt. LOL I will post a pic when I wash it ... I have an ocd thing about wearing unwashed items.
 
Sep. 30, 2012 11:23 am
robin , now you've started next year along with jan for demerits! of course, you could turn those demerits into credits...if you could get hubby to pose in it :)! i just ordered jan's prize. maybe a week out.
 
Sep. 30, 2012 12:10 pm
We did stay another two weeks up there, just hated to come back home to REAL life. Sorry bout the potholders...I thank Ladysparkle then...mine looks so pretty in my camper. The coozi's are in the camper too...we already broke them in. :)
 
Sep. 30, 2012 1:50 pm
sherri! you have also accumlated demerits for next year by not getting ya's tail back to the celadon!! we thought ya had drove further west!
 
Sep. 30, 2012 1:51 pm

About Me
i enjoy cooking. the wife considers it a chore. i hate yard work. she loves it. we mesh. i love bass fishing, reading, music, baseball, college football and my family.
My favorite things to cook
i love vegetables, soups, and italian cusine.
My favorite family cooking traditions
holidays are a big deal! christmas is my time to shine. i try to add a new recipe each year, but the family demands pretty much the same menu. kinda frustrating!
My cooking triumphs
i cared for my mother in law about 3 months when she had shattered her shoulder. i didn't work, so money was tight. we survived on only wife's paycheck during that time. ma-n-law had diet restrictions. it was difficult to make cheap, nutritious meals everyone would eat. we prospered as a family and learned alot about each other's strenghths and weaknesses.
My cooking tragedies
a stove top fire. i explained that one already. the grill falling over was another one...oops grill season is here! i love the tragedies...those are the ones that i'll always remember!
