Thanks for a great rally! Starting with the lawn chair panel supervising backing to the medic check for wellness the rally started with fun and never slowed down from there. Fires burned hot enough for melt down. The "moon" never seemed largerand we even had a few mermaids. Breakfast and dinner was phenominal and open house is always a favorite. There is never enough time to spend with new and old friends however so hope I have the chance to spend more time with you again soon.

In case any of you missed the action "ringside" here are a few highlights.

The ring was freshly watered and the mud was warm and wet. The air of Apple Creek smelled of beer and smoke and sweat. The crowd was there to see the long awaited wrestling match of Slasher and Bone Crusher, Lou's tickets all sold out. The group shot up like canon fire, they shouted with delight as Slash and Crush came out oiled up and primed to fight. Slasher wore an evening gown with thin and tasteful straps and the Crush was dressed for business in a cape and leather chaps. She raised her arm and balled her fist and eyed the restless horde she grabbed Canadian bottles of ale and down the hatch she poured. Slasher gave a dainty wave and stepped into the mud while Crusher dove above the ropes they came down with a thud Amidst the taunts and ballyhoo the two commenced to fray till none could tell the two apart that thick veneer of clay Twas kaos till a sound alas no one could dane mistake that laughing voice from deep within that steaming muddy lake. "Say your prayers, you wretched roach," she said in fevered pitch and body slammed ol Slasher down did make an awesome ditch and climbing to a corner post did leap a mighty height and sailed above poor Slasher like a cow chip launched in flight.

The awestruck crowd was silent as they saw Crusher hit the floor and they watched a boiling skirmish few had likely seen before till one arose at grounds end painted head to toe in brown she stood and held what seemed to be a tatered evening gown The spew of cheers did pierce the site and Crusher took the rag and tied it to a hot dog stick and waved it like a flag With Slasher's mud caked body pinned beneath her booted sole said, "Let this be a lesson, you freakin' little troll."

As Crusher left the ring she turned and belted one last growl and someone pulled poor Slasher up and wrapped her in a towel. We've had our fill of carnage now and filed home to rest and maintainence and management have stayed to clean up what we missed. And you can bet I'm heading back to Lou's Rally next time right? I'll be there near ringside for the AirBoss/ Louster fight!

Popcorn

The popcorn was a fun idea! We had a great time and all of you are more than welcome. We are glad that you enjoyed it. Maybe I can talk Larry into the cotton candy machine next time! LOL!!!!

A little emabarrising, but....

So...

Did anyone else come home with a MASSIVE amount of insect bites? I must have at least 50 on my ankles. They appear to possibly be sand fleas. Guess I shouldn't have worn sandles in that dirt.

You would have thought I would have felt them, but I guess not. Heck, I wasn't drinking that much

bugs

The bugs usually love me too. No bites this weekend. I did not spray until night time when we were out there popping the corn. I had shorts and flip flops on the whole time and did not get bit. Sorry, guess they found you instead. Haul out the Cortaid and Benedryl!

YES, i have them all over my legs, some on my left hand, I have over 100 on my right leg alone. At first I thought they were hives, or shingles, or something, they itch SO BAD! I never felt the bites happening, but boy, Im feeling the itch now!

I'm sorry for you, but I'm glad it wasn't just me. I was worried my gaucho was infested or something.

Yesterday I went out to my shop for the belt sander the itch was so bad!

I've found Lotrimin Ultra and COLD water spray works great.

I'm CANADIAN - and there AIN'T NO FLEAS ON US!!!!

Sand fleas or possibly red ants - that give off an ansthetic bite so you do not feel them. I noticed several mounds around Carol's spot and thought maybe that is what was biting Carol - she has many bites too.

But seriously I do not have any - must have been the Canadian ICE that saved me - really though when you go camping bug juice is a good thing to do......

A great soother for the after bite is Aveeno anti itch cream. Better than Calamine Lotion.

keep your hands on the table - and stop itching......

PS ...a fan also does the trick of keeping bugs away

I loved the theater popcorn! Yes Lou and Larry thank you so much. I was a regular.

I am bit and wished I had brought long pants to cover all my bites! I looked like I had chicken pox. But Sharon's products helped a lot. Thank you Sharon.

We had such a lovely rally with the projects for children and the ladies crafting table. Candy, Steph and Lou really outdid themselves with providing a fun time. Lou's banners were so neat as was Renee's license plate holders. Lots of talent in our group.

Anyone have more rally pictures?

I think I am still full from the huge rally breakfast, potluck, and barbecue that Laura and Holly put together our last night!! We had Lou's smoked chicken for dinner last night and now Brad is hooked on them as well.
