Kill the Bastard Rooster IV

It's that time again... time to remind you that you really want to come out here and party on labor day weekend. Actually I know Raven already posted this, and probably any of you who are interested/able to show up read his LJ. But in case not, here's your annual reminder that Labor Day weekend is (ehemmybirthdayehem) the fourth annual Kill the Bastard Rooster party. Show up when you want, stay as long as you like, pot luck, I will provide baked goods and some form of chicken entree. Bonfires. Optional camping. thetyrant swears he is coming this year. Baby chickens to play with, big chickens to eat your leftover sandwiches, and New This Year: Sheep to hug AND a friendly goose!


Also new this year, the pond is officially open as "The ol' swimmin hole." We've cleared back the reeds in the deep end. Resident wildlife include frogs, smallish fish and a goose who loves to Swim With Others. The bottom is clay, and you will sink a bit (don't swim in shoes, you'll lose 'em). But it's clean and there are no icky surprises.


Note: Due to the rain this spring, the mosquitoes are on the insane side, and I recommend bringing something to ward 'em off. The bats and fish are active, but they can't keep up. IF YOU BRING DEET (which it's hard to avoid) please DO NOT GO IN THE POND WHILE WEARING INSECTICIDE. Also, please make sure you do not spray or wash your hands before touching the animals. This shouldn't be a big problem, as the skeeters don't attack in force until after dark, when all the fluffies are safely abed, I just had to mention it as the animals are very friendly, and I don't want my babies getting poisoned!

If you called me, read this a few people have already contacted us about bringing friends, and I hate the telephone so I'm posting here: Yes. Bring friends. Please don't bring anybody who is going to be an arsehole, or they'll be very lonely sitting out in the middle of the road while we have fun at a campfire. But I don't expect you would, because if they were an areshole, why would you be friends with them? But this weekend is about relaxing and having fun and wrapping up the summer in an enjoyable way, so if you feel your friends either need/want/would enhance that, they are very welcome here!

Directions, if needed, are posted here I think that's a locked post, so if you're not on my flist, either get on it or find someone who is!

I've been looking forward to this since last year. I figure I'll be there setting up the gigantic tent in the dark again. Oh and I have a big stack of skids behind my work I'm going to try and bring for you.

That would be awesome. All of those things would be awesome. Except maybe the tent in the dark. Then again, it did work last year!

Cool. Christine I know, or Christine I don't know? :) Not that it would make a difference!

I saw you at work the other day, but you were busy doin' stuff and I was buying something, so I didn't tag you. So hello, from the other day!

We will be there for one night (not sure yet which night, we'd like to plan to be there at the same time as Dru and Em and those types) with a tent. A 12 foot by 12 foot tent if there's room for such a thing.

don't see why there wouldn't be room. Not sure if Dru and Em are coming or not, due to imminent baby-ness, but then you've talked to them more recently than I have, so maybe you know different? Be awesome if you could all be here.

I saw Raven last night!!! I haven't seen you in forever!

silly question, and unrelated to your post, lol, but do you happen to still have that picture of you, me and marissa all dressed up before the after dark fest at avalon back about 6 years ago?

I was looking for it for a good bit of nostalgia and realized you took it with your camera and I didn't have one.
anyways if you do I'd love to see it again !

hope all is well
