We called the morning after you went to work early. I left a message. Then we went to the lake you never called back. So we missed you. We tried to go by. But you had already left. Very cool cow in mom's porch by the way. Smiley

Yeah, I work graveyard so I had to been sleeping and my wife was out running errands.  When I was halfway to our truck yard in tacoma my wife called and said you guys left messages!  Ahhhh!!!  Oh well.  Really sucks but what can  you do.

My mom is nuts.  She paid big $$ for that darn plastic cow.  It's 100% anatomically correct and was meant for a agriculture classroom or something.  But she wanted it to put on the porch just to freak people out.  She also bought a life size manikin of a woman in a sitting position that she keeps in random places throughout the property, dressed in strange stuff.  Last halloween she put a witch mask on her and had her holding a baby with an ogre mask.  Looked really freaky but hilarious!

Again, I'm really bummed that I missed you guys and Brian's BBQ.

.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

I, too, am totally bummed we couldn't be there.  I've just read through the whole thread from the party on - Greg's work schedule won't let us take off around that time of year! We can only hope.....I'm so glad you guys all had such a great time!

Brian, I haven't forgotten about your offer to host another bee barbeque, just keep forgetting to make a comment here.  I think it would be a very cool thing to get together each year, I would certainly be in again, and I would do all the planning and work for you.  Let's talk more about this come the late spring, I am sure that it would be a wonderful event to plan yearly, why not, life is worth that living!!!  Have the most wonderful and awesome day, Cindi

If you guys decide to do it again let us mods know and we'll sticky your topic at the top of the forum page again!

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.

I think there was an open invitation to forum members.Brian Debray hosted the get together and it was attended by Cindi and husband Ken from British Columbia Canada, Understudy and wife Janel from Florida. Sean Kelly had planned to attend with his family but had to cancel at the last minute.I believe poka bee and her husband also attended.
There were a couple others that wanted to attend but couldn't make the connections at the right time. Keep your eyes posted for other get togethers.
 In August My wife and son and I got the pleasure of meeting Up with Beemaster(John) and his wife Tracey,PDMAttox(Dallas), and Chris(CWBEES) at the USS New Jersey in Camden. It was a great meeting as I'm sure the west coasters had!

Yes, indeedy.  And many thanks.  I would recommend others doing a regional Beemaster's picnic.  Hey, some of us might be able to make it to more than one. 

It was very entertaining and enlightening to find that the personality displayed on the forum is the same in person as on the net.

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,  cool Smiley Smiley Smiley  Have the most wonderfully awesome day, Cindi

Thanks for the reply; I just thought with this thread being so long, it was a larger gathering of folks.
 Glad those that did attend had a good time.

When it comes to parties, it's not the quanity but the quality that counts.  We had a quality party.
