If he was at the Kon and missed him I swear never to drink another beer! Some of the people at the kon attended the Twain House event in Conn Thursday. I wish I could have adapted my plans to make that. From what they said it was a
mazing. Sorry for choppy post, I'm typing on my nook. I'm in bed reading with a box of hostess cupcakes.... life is getting back to normal for me ayup. GREAT PICS LYN THANX!
Typing in bed, eh? Hmmmm - sounds like a plan. I am having a lazy day today. Hubby is out there doing type A personality yard work and trying to make me feel guilty. Hey - to each his own. I worked all week and now seems like a good time to go get cozy in the old upstairs bedroom. Could I bum a couple of those Hostess cupcakes please? They wound Dee-licious!
HEY, I just picked up my mail and I found this beautiful postcard from all you wonderful people who went to the Kon! How nice of you! (as if I didn't ask for one, ha-ha!) This really made my day, guys and girls! (Doing my happy dance!)
Ok, so where were we? Continued from page 91. Madam Mack thanks for posting a pic from Donna's page, I was trying to post the one of us at WKIT however but whatever. I have issues posting pictures here for some reason. Ok, so as I left off, me, donna, jax, jodi, lyn, kim, dianne and beth all went to the Mark Twain House event FROM our cottage at Pushaw to CT took like 7? hours., it was kinda crazy to go meet SK in CT when we came from Bangor! lol But it was worth it. To see someone almost pass out because she was so excited to meet her idol she'd been admiring for the past 20 something years was priceless.
So after we get back from CT on Friday... we went over to the campground to meet some more SKMB'ers. AFTER clearing a tree from the road! That was fun. There's a pic or two out there somewhere of us walking toward it. We hooked up with Deb and folks from Nate's cabin, found out Frank had to leave suddenly. Had some beers. Watched the storm. Man that was WICKED! Rain came down in sheets! Lightning was CRAZY! Felt like we were in a Stephen King story. After a bit went over to meet Giant and others had a good lil chat. Then went back to our cabin which had lost power. Stayed up way too late again.
Saturday got up way too early again. Lyn makes coffee on the outside grill thingamabob. YES! We get our power back at some point and get ready for the Bus Tour. Meet up with everyone at the campground, sign Marsha's shirt, pile on bus, go on tour, correct the tour guide several times, laugh and have a good time. Get back to the campground, get stuff ready. I hid the Bool Hunt items we wait for more folks to arrive, have some beers, go outside to get some air it was damn hot that night.,but that breeze out back was wonderful! We helped set stuff up and I made up my prize table, a box of stuff from me and a box of stuff from Linda aka KingfamilyFan!! Thanks Girl!! It looked good.,thanks Beth for helping! DiAnne also helped me figure out how to divvy up the prizes. I placed a 19 beer bottle and a CHEERS beer can on the table for John. Giant makes his wonderful speech, Pat cries, and many others tear up. Then they say Ok Cj, you're up! I'm like, what!? I can't follow that speech. So nervously I explain about the bool hunt, and the 10 question quiz at everyone's table. There was a Kingo/Bingo game I created that we didn't get to play.,though. NEXT KON! I hope everyone had fun! For me it was SUCH A GREAT TIME. Everyone was so friendly and in sync it was scary. Lynn & Hoss singing & playing guitar (& Nate later on) was a highlight for me. They are all so talented!
The troll came a bit later in the evening and provided entertainment although when she said what she said about OUR SAI, I almost lost it. Seriously. If I had had a few more beers than I did? I would have. My first instinct was to say, I don't care if he's disheveled or dirty or whatever, he's a brilliant man and author and that's why we read and adore him. Who is she to say this about our Sai? I said that I had met him several times and he was never dirty and gross. Anyway, she really pissed me off. lol
And i'll end it there for tonight and post tomorrow about Sunday with skmb'ers, the rest was our ka-tet and some things are best left private.
OH and Larry donated a shirt, too! Thanks Larry! oh and btw, Deb won the signed Joe Hill shirt and Giant? Got the signed Owen King shirt. Wtg guys! I hope everyone walked away with something! ??
