last message reposted from old thread:

I've changed the day to Friday.

Seniority before, hmmm... would that be 'Beauty' AZB? Maybe, but Hillbilly's like royalty here... with 40+ years in the DR, he has some stories!! I deferred to seniority and royalty.

But I don't feel too bad; have a feeling AZB will be in projector heaven anyway. heehee.

I checked with Debbie & Brian and Friday is actually better for them as well. On Thursday, Brian would have missed to babysit their daughter.

SO: FRIDAY AT ROCKY'S, 7 PM for DINNER & DRINKS

Merengue, I just passed by Rocky's and dropped off Lut. Sorry I missed you!
Hope Friday is ok.

Anyone else in the Sosua area on Friday is welcome to join us! If you get a chance, please post here.

Pictures

Please if you take pictures resize them before uploading to the media gallery, even on high speed it takes awhile to download the pictures that total 7600kb.
It does take some work to resize, make thumbnails, and upload to the gallery.

No problema, wud.

I'll speak to Rocky about it. He knows. I'll do the work if he shows me the way.

Yay!

Hillbilly has confirmed... he's bringing along a 6 year old, so will be here between 5:30 & 6 pm.

I'm getting on the phone to the parents of the other youngsters to let them know.

BUT... for anyone else who wishes to say hi to Hillbilly, get your butts here early. :)

We'll be a smaller group, but...

Yes, Merengue, spoke to Kurt today. He will be there. I will be there.

I haven't heard otherwise from Brian & Debbie, or purplebunniern & Melissa, but I didn't cancel tonight. Maybel they will feel like socializing after the storm; if so, they'll be here.

Hillbilly can't even begin to think about traversing the mountains today, so we're going to miss him, and D & D also I expect.

Larry's flying into SD now, so will not make Sosua until Monday, most likely.
At least he's in the country today, he had to fight for it.

Hey, Larry, if you see this! Guess what, dude? We fly out on the same day now and I daresay the same plane. ha. I had thought of flying out on the 23rd, but changed to the 24th at last moment. Thought, heck, will miss the company by one day. um, we will both be traveling light, LOL.

holy hannah!

Just realized, I have nothing to wear for tonight. Am not back home yet and a quick (very quick) perusal of my vast traveling wardrobe indicates: 2 pairs of shorts, both dirty, 1 NY state police t-shirt, ewww, smelly, and a warm weather tank much too chilly for tonight. :( Well, I do have clean undies.

How about a toga party? Can rip up a sheet here maybe. heehee

OH! Debbie just called. She's coming, most likely. Brian, not sure.

You're kidding eh? Spent an hour or two at Rockies this afternoon. Ed offered us breakfast cooked by the gardener, or maybe he could promote the gardener to try cooking a burger ;)

Eventually the cook turned up and we had a good burger as usual. Coming home was an ordeal. There must be 100's of trees down. Thank heavens for 4-wheel drive... I won't be going out again before we have not cleared the road of at least 10 trees - the telephone lines are playing hide and go seek between downed poles, trees and -- now they're up, then they're down...

Enjoy the evening...

LOL. Does this mean I'm cooking tonight maybe? Well, it all fits. I won't need party clothes after all. May be a limited menu, though.

I'll make my favorite: garlic mashed potatoes. that's it. they're delicious and good for you. yummy. hope everyone is ravenous.
