Blogstock '08

An addendum to the rain total. I have now dumped another .5 and then 2.2 in the past week bringing us to 9.9 inches since August 19th. Does anyone know if Clorox water is okay to bathe in? Or will mold eventually just fall off? NOW... back to the show.
Ralph's idea for Blogstock '08 has moved forward a bit. Ralph and Char were here for two nights recently and after careful consideration of the moon phases, the local weather patterns, everyone's schedule, and mostly not knowing when to have the big event we have agreed upon having it the 4th and 5th of July. Most the time we'll be here on the farm and some of the time we will be other places to be announced as they are firmed up. We hope some of you folks will come in Thursday, the 3rd, to help decorate a float for the parade to be held the following day. You might be able to ride on the float on the 4th and throw candy in case that's something you've always wanted to do. If you can only be here for a brief time, you should try to be here on Saturday afternoon and evening. There will be a 'gathering' at that time with memorable food, and fun and maybe a bloggers program. We'll need to get into that later. And I'm sure there will be some kind of breakfast on Sunday the 6th before you leave. (anything past Sunday dinner and you'd better have gloves and work shoes with you) If you have family members who aren't interested in blogs or bloggers, I think we can find sufficient activities to keep them busy. I can get you and/or them on at our local golf course and other courses for that matter. If you want to bring a fishing boat we have a pretty fair fishing spot just west of town. If all you have is a fishing pole, you can walk down to the Missouri river on the east edge of the farm and pull in a catfish or gar or carp or sauger or small mouth bass or... There are campgrounds available in the area and for that matter if you have a camper, you can plug into one of my grain bins and stay here on the farm. (there is 110v and 220v 60amp range plugs available at each of 10 locations) If you want to tent you can do that here and use our facilities. We can line you up with motel locations at a later date. Our airport is just 4.3 miles from the farm and is a lighted 4000' runway facility. No attendees. Call for services. We can come pick you up if you're from Texas and fly in. Or if you're a jogger, like I say, it's only 4.3 miles. : )
Marilyn and I and Char and Ralph will be your hosts and we promise to do our best. I'll be setting up a private blog for details at a later date. When I do I'll email those interested the address. We will pass along the cost of the food to each of you. It shoudn't be expensive at all.
Let us know.

Jerry said...

nora said...

I'm in!
Jerry, can I ride with you?

Rachel said...

All that rain Cliff. We are still dry as dust. We do have a small chance of rain this weekend as the high gets pushed south. If we get rain the grass will drink deeply and laugh with joy.

YES, you can put some Clorox in your bath water!!

Blogstock...oh yeah, I'm in!!!

Paul said...

My First Wife and I respectfully request that you count us in!

Does anyone know how to play "Washers?"

Maria said...

Wish I could join you all. Sounds like a lot of fun, but Nebraska is a long way away. I'll be there in spirit, how's that?

gel said...

Yipeeeeee!You're stuck w/ us now. Thank goodness for those free airline miles. Hope you're not expecting an "artistic" float...I sure am looking forward to my own chocolate cake!

Cliff said...

Cake.?.. we'll bake one.

Anonymous said...

Even tho Blue and I aren't bloggers can we come? I'll bring raisin bars.
Mrs. Blue

Jim said...

Hey Cliff, GREDAT GOING!!

Mrs. Jim says to hold off on the Clorox until the last resort.

We are excited and are marking our calenday for Blogstock '08. You have our e-mail, I think.

Thanks for finding me, no, we aren't gone until September 11. And we should return September 25. It will back to Scotland and Isle of Man to finish up what we started when interrupted by when I fell.

I left this comment answer over at
my Photo Place (the only blog I keep mostly).
http://jimmiehov6.blogspot.com/

"Cliff -- You have been busy farming and going to weddings. I am semi-retired until October.
So I mainly run just one blog, this one [Photo Place], for now.
And I don't post (or read) so often.
I've got lots of other things to do also, before winter sets in.
Be advised:
"The reports of my death have ..." is my quote on the other blog right now!"
..

Cliff said...

Mrs Blue: you and da ump are in. I wouldn't have this without you. The bars would be just right. I made them and they didn't taste anything like yours. I think I got the 'public' recipe. You bring em, I'll eat em.

Miki said...

Cliff, if you keep reminding us, perhaps some of us who are losing their collective minds can remember to come. I would love to come, but may also be there only in spirit. Nebraska is a long way. I know that the invitation is there, and would love to attend, keep me posted, you have my email right? The new one I mean?

Gette said...

Yay! The calendar is so marked. If Paul's "washers" means a yard game with a board and some holes, we'll be lined up and ready. I can bring the golf ball game thingy. And an iPastor for Sunday mornin'

Lee said...

If I win the lotto betwixt now and then, count me in, Cliff...if not, I'll be there in spirit!

We've had some wonderful, much-needed rain here these past seven days.

1 plus twins said...

i would love to come but not sure if i would bring my hubby, you would never see him cuz he would be golfing the whole time. maybe we wouldn't tell him about the golf courses that are so close to you. lol if we can't make it maybe you can put arizona in your 08 blogstock tour!! but we would have to go to britmums to eat cuz i suck at cooking!! lol i think my boys would much rather come to you though cuz they have been dying to meet a REAL farmer!! keep us updated and reminders cuz my memory sucks.

Peter said...

I was starting to feel quite despondent until I read of a few people being there "in spirit" Blogstock '08 with a few belts under the belt..... yeah!!!
As an alternative Cliff, do you happen to have a few Maple trees or something similar and a few cans of spray paint in "fall" colors???? I believe its possible to fake just about anything if you are dedicated.

Jamie Dawn said...

YesireeeBob!
I mean, Cliff.
Count me in and maybe some family members too.
You promised memorable food, and that's ALL it takes to get me there.
What fun this will be!!!!!
I would like to ride on a float and do the backwards wave like the Queen of England does. I don't want to throw candy, but I'll eat some. Well, I can throw the ones that I don't care for, but I'm claiming anything butterscotch.
Seriously, it will be a grand event, and I look forward to meeting several blog buddies. :-)

LZ Blogger said...

Cliff ~ I see NO MENTION here of the "Blogfest" Guests having to do any de-tassling? Is that just an oversight? I guess I better be looking for some new leather gloves if I plan on making it there in July! ~ jb///

Cliff said...

There'll be none of that on this farm. (de-tassling) If you're here long enough you'll be able to use the gloves to help haul hay.
Or you can bring them to help light off all of those high powered fireworks you bring from the south.

JUST A MOM said...

JUST A MOM said...

OH THEY BEAT ME... we will all be there and you will see just what kind of Arizona crazy can be ahahahhhaahaha

Cliff said...

Well Mom, I was worried about it being too hot in Nebraska in July. But for you three, it should be a 'cool' vacation compared to Phoenix.

Rhodent said...

You can count me in, Cliff! I might even get a post or two in by then! This will be great fun... can't wait to meet some of these folks in person! I promise not to bring any rodents with me.

Angie said...

sounds like a great gala.....can't wait to hear more about it.

SORSO said...

Yahoooooo!!! This will be an event that can not be missed !

I will even bring SOR (Son of Ralph)

I will be there with my cloths on ... LOL

John Goerzen said...

This sure sounds like fun! I think we're still open for that time.

Cliff said...

Clothing is optional Sorso. Just don't tell Ralphdaddy.

Jim said...

I was just wondering how you found my 'Slightly Used Shrimp Boat for Sale' blog? It was old, June of last year.
..

Flip Flop Goddess said...

first..R U really seroius?

Becasue that sounds freaking awesome..

if your really doing this, I may plan my family vacation occoringly..

I have always wanted to go farther west..

count me in Cliff..

Gette said...

Bossy,

It's only about 50 miles further west, but we get to go south. And there are casino boats between here and there. We could have one heckuva road trip...

Gette said...

Oh, and for the parade candy thing. Last year our church did those little freezy pops. Dang near as cheap as candy and a huge hit with the crowd. Have to get down and pass 'em , tho. They're a b*tch to throw.

Cliff said...

I think the casino's have special floors just for future p.w.'s.
You know, communion and all that. No visible thongs allowed tho.

Flip Flop Goddess said...

well I am in for sure then Cliff and I will leave my thongs in my tent;)
