    Save ma a green ribbon Marlene. I need one so you will know who I am.

    I am going to bring some food of some kind too cause I might not want to wait in the long line for a veggie burger.

    I convinced my weaving friend that she wanted to go. (Fingers crossed), please let there be at least one weaver, or someone with fleece there. We're stopping in Mansfield for a sandwich and some drinks. I remember that long line to get a bottle of water last year.

    LINDA H, I don't remember ever seeing any weavers there but if she would be interested in a raw alpaca fleece I can bring one and she can take a look at it and make me an offer. The way to find me is to arange a meeting with me with the bambo man Noah. I will check in with him often I am sure.

    Also there will be fleece there at the camp out at Tyler bend the following weekend if you are comming to that.
    Heck, if you live in the area or just want to come visit bring her and let her look over the fleeces that will be there. I am not sure what they will be.
    Llama and alpaca I think.

    LaDonna or Marlene, Milt and I are worried that we may not be able to get across the creek. Does you cell phones work up there and if so could you call and let us know if you made it?
    PM me and I will give you our phone number if you need it.

    The Sultan and I went. Had a good time. Saw lots of friends, spent too much money but didn't get everything I wanted. I just couldn't ask the great Sultan to make another trip across that big field down the hill to take another large plant to the truck. I wanted an elderberry plant.
    Bought lots of plants and seeds. Bought A beautiful handmade quilt for a little of nothing. Got a little too much sun.
    Sorry Russell but Gail was not there or at least none of us saw him.
    See you at the camp out this next weekend. The sun is supposed to shine then too. :)

    FourDeuce/Noah and I enjoyed our day at Baker Creek yesterday also. Especially getting to see friends and the fact that we didn't have as much stuff to load back into the truck. Haven't taken the time yet to figure out if I spent all the profit buying stuff, I got some new varities of hen and chicks to add to my collection, some herbs for my neice, and a hanging basket for myself and a plant for Noah. I think Noah said he got some seeds ... but we haven't unloaded the truck so I haven't seen those yet. Since Corky didn't leave that quilt in our booth, I'm wishing I would have gotten one of those also :shrug:

    Dale, actually, there were several men there who matched your discription, sorry to report I don't know if we got to see you are not.

    Time to get ready for next weekend at Buffalo River Homesteaders Campout at Tyler Bend.

    Hoping to see ya'll there,
    Marlene
