Who wants to play with us?

Recommended Posts

Marty is coming from Ohio to visit us on November 7. She would like to meet as many of us as possible and have some fun in "America's Finest City." We have come up with a general list of things to do, and anyone is invited to any and all of these events. Here is a tentative list of things she would like to do, dates are a little sketchy...

1. Attend the East County Support Group on Weds. Nov. 8. This is not so much a "social time" but more a way to see how we give such good support to each other. If you want to play, please come to the pot luck.

2. RainDear, help me out here! Rain has suggested a "Leather Pants Party" up in North County for Friday November 10. I look to Rain to fill out the details.

3. Major potluck at Donna's condo by SDSU. PM me for directions. This gig will be Saturday. Bring suits and towels if interested in the pool or hot tub. And please bring something to eat or drink to share. We'll start 3ish and go till we drop. (Just step over me, as I will be one of the earlier droppers.:o )

4. A day at the zoo. No visit is complete without one! Day not decided yet.

5. Lobster in Puerto Nuevo. This is tentative also, but Marty wants to go to Mexico, so......

6. Thrift shopping! No specific date, but let me know your favorite place for thrift shopping, we'll put it on the list, and we can all go get cool stuff!

7. Hangin by the pool. Whenever we don't have the energy for the stuff above. :cool:

8. Hangin' at the beach--we'll decide which one, most likely go down there with the RV, maybe have a bonfire somewhere. Date totally undecided.

Anyone on the forum is welcome to join us, you don't have to be a Callery/Potts kid to join. Let's keep the Weds night Support Group therapeutic, and if you want to meet her, join us at one of our outings! Also, if you want to suggest a fun thing to do or place to go, do so! Feel free to post suggestions or objections. I'm sorry that Saturday Nov. 10 is a potluck, but we're kind of short on dead presidents right now....people have told me they don't mind, they just want to party.

Thoughts, ideas, criticisms?:)

Count me in for the Wednesday support group absolutely! Also, the potluck on Saturday sounds awesome! Barring any unforseen scheduling issues I'll be there. Shall I bring black-eyed peas?! JK I'll see what wonderful high-protein, low-sugar, low-carb, low-fat recipe I can find for you losers!

Donna, honestly! No one expects one person to cater or provide for goodness-knows how many people! 99% of all functions I ever attend are potlucks! The 1% is my annual New Year's Day thing where I absolutely forbid anyone to bring anything because of the quirky traditions! Relax, we love you and want you to have the best time possible with the least amount of worry! Providing the venue is more enough.

Would you be putting some ham hocks in with those black eyed peas, Hunnychild? MMMMMMMM! I saw some canned ones at the store the other day (GASP--that's as bad as "instant grits"!) (courtesy of "My Cousin Vinny")...

Whatever you bring will be wonderful, especially because it means you will be there. I would love all of the sweet loving people who have meant so much to me over this past year to be my guests. I wish I was the Donald, or Oprah, so I could fly Duckie, Zen, the Lisas, Dr Dyann, Van, on and on and on. This forum is SO successful--I bet a lot of us wouldn't be able to do this without it. I don't think I could. Just think of all the questions we have on our journeys that we can get answered here and don't have to call our surgeons about. The information is more standardized here, too. We truly are a family, and everyone I have met is exceptional. Now I'm all verklempt....talk amongst yourselves....;)

Seriously, I have room for folks, and will call about getting the community room from officer Barney Phyfe, the HOA president for overflow. It's straight out of the 70's. But it has a kitchen and pretty much everything we would need. We just need to promise we will not stand on the railing and jump into the pool! Honestly, that's what the last group to rent the place did. That was probably back in the 80's.... And anyone who wants to steal anything from me can stay home too. That happened the last time I had a group of Sistahs over. She no longer shows her face on the board, and that's the best for all concerned. Just mentioning her name makes Michelles knuckles itch!

Who's up for this? Any ideas on what to bring so others can flesh out the eats? I'm pretty stoked. I used to love giving parties and haven't had a good one since I turned 50. So it's definitely time!!:D

Donna - I will definately be there on Saturday for the potluck! Can you pm me your address so I can get directions from waaaay up here in Lala land? Depending on how far south you are, I may stay down there overnight, but I have a time share I can get for the night that anyone else is welcome to crash at with me for the night...just let me know so i know how big a suite to reserve...

Thanks for hosting all of us, and especially Marty, Donna!!!

Oh, MAN! I wish I could be there... Raise a toast to "absent friends," and we will be there in virtual spirit, if not bodily. I just sent my gastric bypass book proposal and first three chapters out to ten publishers yesterday, so when they produce the book, and it becomes a bestseller, I'll play the Trump card and fly everyone to meet somewhere sunny and warm, OK? :) Hey, if you're dreaming, dream BIG! And you are all more than family to me as well...I talk to y'all more, anyway...

I wonder how many I will know just from the avatars? Most of us are not good about updating them.....and I never think mine look like me anyhow. Right now I look like I got in a cat fight and lost. :o
