I take it that this was a private party ?
On 9-7 I asked how many attended this shindig, nobody replied !
Looks like 14 pages of posts but I see very few names of those that attended.
Guess I really don't need to know anyway.
Bee-Bop, I feel some sadness in what you are saying, I am truly sorry that your queary was not fully answered. I will tell you in-depth here, maybe that will make you feel better, you need a response. And yes, you need to know. I thought that one of the posts indicated who attended.
The shindig was a barbeque that Brian Bray had put on for any members of our forum that wanted to come. It was definitely not private, it was an open invitation. There are several of us members that live in the Pacific Northwest within several hundred miles of each other. More would have attended, but stuff happens in peoples' lives. And distance is a huge factor.
Brian had been planning this event since the spring time and it was an enormous undertaking for him, and I take my hat off to that man!!! Next year, we hope that we can do this again, only this time, he will lean on me to help organize it, get the foods readied, and so on.....and I willingly take on this responsibility. I would hope that this could be a yearly get-together for those that can attend.
As Ken (Buzzbee) was saying, those that attended were:
Brendhan and Wife, Janel, from Florida
My Husband, Ken and me, from British Columbia, Canada
Poka-Bee (Jody) and Husband, Bruce, from Washington
And of course, Brian, whose home we had the celebration at
Now KathyP, from Boring, Oregon and Sean, from Buckley Washington were going to come too. Kathy had to go to do some work with the Red Cross with a tragic storm, and Sean could not attend, I am not sure why, he probably told us, but I have forgotten that. He had something very important that came up and he could not come with his family, probably the new baby, they don't travel well.
Bee-Bop, I hope that this cleared up what you were wanting cleared up, 8-) :) :) :) Have the most wonderfully awesome day, Cindi
