    Ok, we have 10 acres, lots of tree coverage, and lots of room for vehicles. A bathroom will be available..and the date is December 5th so that Kelly can come [​IMG] (you'll understand as you read down.)

    because it will be too chilly for the babies, i'm going to start it around 10. by then it should be warm enough, and leaves time for everyone to come.

    This will be posted in the Sumter Shopper, The Daily Commercial, Possibly the Ocala Star Banner (depending on how much they will charge me) and posters will be put up in all local feed stores.

    My parents are State Assistant Directors of Good Sams. They collect aluminum cans for The Dogs for the Deaf. Last year and the year before, they saved up enough money for 6 or 7 dogs. So, since I'm using their lawn, if anyone would be so kind to save up their aluminum to donate to the dogs, that would be appreciated. (not necessary though).

    ALSO: I will be collecting food for a family that i know of that has hit a spot of hard times (possibly more then one family depending on how much food is donated) and could really use just a little bit of help. (but donations are absolutely not necessary, just something i can do to help make someone's life a little easier.)

    OK address is : 5060 sw 73rd place, bushnell, fl 3353
    you can use mapquest, google, tomtom, any of them until you get onto 476. after that, ignore the directions or it will put you in a cow field. I'm so not kidding. our road was suppose to be done one way, and the county put it where they felt like....so all of the directions from 476 on will be wrong.
    once you get on 476, if you're heading towards bushnell from the inverness area, you'll turn left at the bushnell truss company.
    if you're heading towards nobleton/inverness on 476, you'll turn right at the bushnell truss.
    we will have signs all over the place, so you will be able to follow them. i dont put signs on 41, but if you're turning off of 41 in hernando, onto 476, just come all the way down and find the signs.
    my road/driveway is a 2 tire track dirt path. just follow it in. the signs will guide you.

    (you know you're a redneck when ups calls to confirm your address because the driver said it didn't exist, you repeat it, and they say "really?" NOPE, it's a figment of my imagination...here's your sign

    Food list:
    Me: lasagna
    High Roost Ranch: Tequillaberry salad

    ok, i'm gonna set it for dec 12th (that way other people will still have money to buy your chicks) and we can change it if it becomes a problem. it gives 3 weeks from kelly's to this one.

    BRING YARDSALE STUFF!!!!!

    I'm going to post this in craigslist and the newspaper as a chicken / yard sale. I always get awesome turn outs for my yard sales.

    We'll say the swap can start at 10 so that it is warmer out.

    I use the front of my parents yard...(I'm right next door), so a bathroom is available. Bring chairs and drinks.

    I'm going to go steal the grill today (neighbors got forclosed on and left their grill, and the people cleaning the property said it's trash, so it's gonna become mine) so we can do hotdogs or whatever you bring to throw on there.

    I'll post directions once it gets closer.
