I am reposting this as a reminder for some of you, that like me, tend to be a little forgetful. Fnord will be off to the land of blue-bloods and yachts for a bit, but she assures me that the exposure to the upper-crust of society won’t change her and she will be ready for an invasion of Pop Bloggers. See you on the 12th!
Remember, attendance is mandatory!
Okay, it’s a bit more than a month, but Fnord has to attend some wedding thingie in Boston (lame excuse) and there are other commitments I have in the weeks proceeding.
So, mark your calendars:
June 12th – a Celebration of Life for Steven. Two PM.
Griffin and Fnord have graciously volunteered (?) to host this event at their home. It is going to be a hella party to honor Steven.
I will be bringing a couple of slabs of my world-famous ribs and a pot of my even more famous Smoked Scrapyard Baked Beans.
Attendance is mandatory – that means you, Roxie and Pondy! If you fail to show up, we will hunt you down and drag you to the celebration. You cannot hide from the “evil liberals!” Liberals are very violent, don’t cha’ know!
Please contact me at WSClark52@gmail.com with questions, directions, comments or whatever.
Also, please note on this thread what you will be bringing. If you can’t bring anything, that’s cool, too. Everyone knows that liberals are socialists and we SHARE.
Be prepared to laugh, cry and sing.
And stuff your face!
We all will.

I’m sooo looking forward to spending time with all of you! Steven will be there ’cause he’s in our hearts.
I will have all the ‘stuff’ it takes to corral the food and assist in getting it to its destination (our mouths) — plates, napkins, silverware, ice, cups, glasses, etc. I’ll see if there are any ‘holes’ in needs when we’re close and fill those in, but for the most part you’ll all have to plan this and I’ll join in the party at the last minute. I won’t be rubbing elbows with those blue bloods long enough to learn their lessons, so expect just me.
Since I work weekends, I don’t know if I can make it. I’ve never met a single one of you nice bloggers in person and I would like to put a face with a name. So, I am trying to work it out with my schedule.
Dammit, don’t you just hate it when you have a mortgage AND like to eat? My job helps me to have both – LOL.
Seriously, how long do you think this party will last? I can always come late and join in after the stuffing of the faces.
Sounds like a good time. Since I didn’t know Steven I would feel I was intruding.
I only knew Steven through blogging and he sent me a book through the mail once.
I think Steven would be proud to know that someone would take the time to come to a celebration of his life. But I think he would also be just as proud to know that you feel welcomed on this blog and that you continue to contribute your thoughts, concerns and political ideas.
That is, after all, the reason Steven provided this blog for us. Steven liked discussing the issues – not only political but other stuff.
I wish you would reconsider, Freebird. Steven will be in our hearts forever, but the rest of us would enjoy meeting you.
I do hope you get that schedule figured out, Indy. As for how long, I don’t know. Worst case scenario is you give a call and check to see whether you should join us.
According to WS I have no choice.
I’ll do my best to work it out, fnord. I gotta meet my sister Republican – don’t I?
Yes! It’s past time we met.
Will is going to hold down the fort while I disappear for a while. I know everyone will pitch in and help too! I’ll miss all of you but don’t think I’ll even have access to the internet. So when I’m gone, don’t think I’m gone for good! You aren’t gonna get that lucky! 😉
I have felt most welcome on this blog.WS and I have developed a pretty good friendship and I have cussed and discussed things with others who post here over on the BTHNN in the past. This seems a much more civil place.
You’re coming Free – I need a designated driver to get me home.
Besides, you need to try my ribs.
Hey maybe I can make a litte money providing a designated taxi service but a will need a “no honk” guarantee
I’d take you up on that Free, but it’s a helluva long way to western Kansas to get me home!
Freebird, we can cuss and discuss in person as well as on the web, and still make sure everyone is respected and offered basic human dignity. I don’t know a one of us who needs to tear down another in order to make a point. People who can’t make their own point without attacking another have their very own problems and they can keep them.
That’s only if you have that tight leash on me, Fnord!
I’ll help. Since I don’t drink I can bring non aloholic beverages if you want. Damn,just realized the 12th is 2 days before I turn another year older. If I had known I was going to live this long I would have taken better care of myself.
You don’t give yourself enough credit, Will! You are always able to behave well, it’s just that sometimes you enjoy misbehaving and don’t control yourself. No one is gonna change that unless it’s you. 🙂
Ah, I generally behave myself around folks that are behaving themselves, although I have been know to skewer those that have a disconnect with the truth.
That would exclude Pop Bloggers and a fair portion of society, so I’m good.
But, it’s true, when the Bad Boy grows up, he’s still a Bad Boy inside.
Of course, I am rapidly approaching sixty at warp speed, so maybe it’s time I start acting my age.
Growing old is mandatory,Growing up is optional
I’m SO looking forward to seeing you all and remembering Steven together. I’m gonna cook all night on Friday, motor down to dodah on Saturday, and have a great day with friends I see all too seldom. The drive back home will be long, but worth it to be with my friends.
When the day gets closer, could someone email me a projected head count so I know how many birds must die and potatoes must give their lives for salad?
You know how welcome you would be to spend the night. And I know about the cats. You could bring Summer! I have a big fenced yard.
Fnord, I hate to impose on you so soon after you return from your Excellent Adventure. Not that all of us partying at your house wont be imposition enough, but why pile on.
I’ll email ya!
