5th Annual BBQ- June 21, 2014
« on: January 12, 2014, 06:20:42 PM »
I figured I'd announce it here first.  Save the date!  We usually start around noon or 1 or so. Plenty of room to camp at night (if you choose to stay), a firepit, and a pool to enjoy.  :bigok:  See you then!



Plenty of room to camp out back.   :thumbsup:

I will make this event some year soon.  Unfortunately, it won't be in 2014.   :-\

In before the lock!

Eagerly awaiting all that great Que, the chance to see friends, and make new ones!
We had two bags of grass, 75 pellets of mescaline, five sheets of high-powered blotter acid, a saltshaker half-full of cocaine, a whole galaxy of multi-colored uppers, downers, screamers, laughers... Also, a quart of tequila, a quart of rum, a case of beer, a pint of raw ether, and two dozen amyls. Not that we needed all that for the trip, but once you get locked into a serious drug collection, the tendency is to push it as far as you can.

BTW, I have it on good authority that Mrs Clay (who simply must have the patience of job to put up with this crew) has a fondness for good Merlot.

It will be good to NOT be the only hippy in attendance
We had two bags of grass, 75 pellets of mescaline, five sheets of high-powered blotter acid, a saltshaker half-full of cocaine, a whole galaxy of multi-colored uppers, downers, screamers, laughers... Also, a quart of tequila, a quart of rum, a case of beer, a pint of raw ether, and two dozen amyls. Not that we needed all that for the trip, but once you get locked into a serious drug collection, the tendency is to push it as far as you can.
