next to last

Larry and I were the next to last to leave this morning....or was it afternoon??? I don't remember...but we did have brunch. Oh oh oh...another great meal! We has so much food! Larry and I arrived home safe and sound and were glad to hear that everyone else did too. Can't wait to see some more photos. It was so much fun. And we sure enjoyed meeting all of the new folks! Thanks everyone!!! Let's crank up and do it again soon! I bet Carol and Brad are feeling kind of lonely without the rest of us there tonight! LOL
We sure had a great lot of good photographers!!! Thanks for those shots!

THANKS to Laura for hosting a fantastic rally! Ralph and Laura made goody bags that should have been called great bags! Prizes were stellar! Thanks to all participants who each put the zing in the rally and the wonderful world class food and special recipes and cutom made port and wine that Sharon and Peter made up and bottled with special rally labels. Steph thanks for bringing the kayak and making rally signs and magnets. Lou thanks for the card making class and kits. I am inspired. Your samples are extraordinary. Sharon, I am listening to the special Rivette edition music cd you composed. What talent!! Laura and Holly Twin thanks for the collection of golden oldies, I'll be bebopping to those tunes for many an enjoyable hour! Holly Moon thank you for the Happy Camper shirts, and Mary Lou for the AS shirt. Barbara I love that spearmint soap you gave us and will always have your contact info handy with your great idea of giving out post cards. With my stylin new wardrobe I am READY to rally MORE!! Let's do this again SOON!!

I loved seeing all my old friends and making new ones and hope to see you all again!

Wow all these Thank You's

I too would be remise for not expressing Peter and I's gratitude to you all.

Each and everyone contributed in their own special way to making this Rally a great time for all.

Even to those who at the last minute could not make it and those who really wanted to but could not...the pre-rally posts got us all so excited - we just could not get there soon enough.

Peter and I came home with so many cool trinkets, new friends made and great memories that a billion thank yous could not express our feelings. It is always such a joy to travel across the Border and we surely hope one day that we can return the experience.

Oh and the FOOD!!! - I think Peter's mouth is still full - I know his stomach is - I think he ate so much and gave the impression that I don't feed him at home All those neat and tasty dishes - I will try and post the recipe for the Diane's Ribs and the little Mexican tortilla desert rolls a little later...

...and the pets!! 1 - hamster 1- kitty Cat 6 - little dogs 5 -big dogs...sorry you will all have to help me out on the names....I have a tough enough time remembering human names
