And, the brim were spawning right there, so all their little spawn craters will probably be covered over with mud! Ugh! DH had been out in that rain with me until he couldn't take it anymore, so went to bed about an hour and a half ago. I was out there cleaning off tables, picking up trash and hauling the giant bags to the garage, getting all the food items put up, dumping a million half drunk drinks (trying to fish out the cherries and orange slices first!) And, all in between, trying to give people rides back and forth to the house and their cars in the Mule! And, that is not even our (my) job! We don't charge a venue fee, so they are responsible for all that themselves, but nobody was apparently assigned those tasks! I can't leave the food out there or the trash because of the bears and critters. I would end up having to clean up the whole woods if the bears come and haul all that stuff into the woods!
The bad thing, too, is that all the young folks have gone to the barn to hang out! Randy hates people in his barn when he's not there.....so many expensive tools and equipment, but he went to bed so what was I to do..? Tell them that they have to go back out in the rain to party?
So, tomorrow is going to be horrible. The clean up is going to be a nightmare! I'm just glad those chairs and tablecloths are mine! They are going to have to wash mud off of everything! The DJ said all his thousands of dollars worth of equipment was all wet! This has just been awful! Of course, all the drunk kids said it was great! Go figure!
Ha! And those poor ladies who wore nice expensive shoes! Ugh!
I'd be adding a lock to the barn first thing.
Hope Randy is feeling better and back to himself soon.
Sorry your day ended up so long! But so glad you made the trip.
The 2 geese are in lockdown in a stall for a few days until they associate me with food. 10 acres to roam is a bit much to start!
Hubby worked on my incubator til 10 last night. ALMOST finished. Adding the vents and a few last minute things.guess it won't get sealed or stained yet.
Or I can start most of the swap eggs in my foam one, I do well there til hatch time.
I really had a great time meeting everyone yesterday, and seeing the ones I'd met before.
Robo and GAM, your place is amazing!
