Day 50 and counting till the 3rd annual Middle of the Midwest Missouri Roundup on June 9th, 2012. Well, actually it is the 8th, 9th and 10th. Yes, I should have had this blog done by day 60. I promised Magnolia Blossom it would be done last weekend. I
can hear her slight concerns in her emails that yet again I will not have everything done on time. See, she has always arrived here on Friday night and been armed for action on Saturday morning. I must say she has been quite the blessing to me in the past.
She and bhawk have jumped in and helped out to make things go smoothly for the last 2 roundups. In fact, I believe MB is quite familiar with my kitchen and knows where my vacumn live.
Why is this year different? Friday night there is a Relay for Life walk in the neighboring town and Mike Harvey has organized some of the roundup attendees in joining him for that walk. Here are the links to two of his past blogs if you would like more info.
Cancer seems to touch all of us in some way and it is really a neat thing that Mike goes out of his way to find events that he can attend no matter where he is.
If you have been toying with the idea of coming to a roundup in your area and this one fits in, please don't feel you have to attend the walk to attend the roundup. The actual roundup is the 9th at my house. Yes, we do have returning faces but don't let that
stop you either. Each year there have been new faces attending and what a blast it is for all of us to see our friends from the previous year and to add new friends to our group. Lunch will be served at 1:00pm and BBQ is on the menu. Sunday a brunch will be
served for those that have stayed over either here at my house or at the surrounding motels. Please email me at
firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like any information and would like to come.
I feel I need to apologise to some of my friends before I get to the list of this years attendees. So, sueb, saw some really good food photos. Want the recipes for one I saw. Southern Gma, miss you but I do know you are up and kicking. Redly, that was a fluke
I managed to make it back for your limerick blog. petey, excellent job on Pippin's. For those that are used to "talking" to me, I've been in the garden or cleaning poo. No, seriously! That has been what I've been doing. Missouri weather is fickle at best and
if you have nice days they have to be used especially if you have more than a 10 X 10 flower or garden area. Which is looking pretty good right now.
I can not believe some of the stuff that is blooming right now. Flowers that should be out for Mother's Day may hit their peak and be gone. I couldn't believe I found this little red stinker. They were expected to be ready for the roundup so I could serve organic
fresh strawberries on a fruit tray. Ugh! Doesn't look like that will happen.
As for the poo, we added 8 animals to the household. The 2 horses moved down here to live and I decided I wanted fresh eggs so I added 6 hens. And yes, as with all animals they do seem to fall under my jurisdiction. I actually thought the DS would be more of
a help with the horses. To give you a little insight into his thinking he walked into the house shortly after the horses moved in and announced, "It's staying pretty clean in the stalls and the barn area." My eyebrows shot up past my hairline, I believe, as
I opened my mouth to say, "NO, (fill in the blank) Sherlock!". His father was wise enough to say, " that could be cause your Mother cleans the pen daily".
If you are wondering why the DH doesn't help with any of the gardening. This is what he did to my flowering crab. The tree that I potted and drug in and out of the garage for 3 years. Planted it in the hen pen for shade and 5 days later......
Here is a list of this year's attendees as I know it at the moment:
Mike Harvey and his lovely wife
Candace and her daughter
Wanting to come but will let me know closer to date-
Interested in coming but.....
Scott- LLL Productions
and a lady that for the life of me I can't remember your screen name at the moment.
Friday night hardy appetizers will be served for those coming in at different times. There is still some room in the camper. Saturday is lunch. Sunday is brunch. If you want to come or want more info please email me. For those attending other roundups, have
safe travels because you will have a blast!
I'd do the heart thingy but I always get it wrong :)(:
