    Due to the enormous interest and limited space, I have had to remove the invitation. Robin

    ..................I think that's an excellent idea . I thimk I've got some extra Chips, , etc . I'm assuming this will be for One long day , Saturday . Are we going to have seminars on various subjects such as .....building an outhouse that looks like a Well house????? Just kidding......There should be a fairly large turnout as i think there are quite a few Po' country folk who post here on the Forum...........fordy..... :eek: :)

    We are planning on demos starting at 10 in the morning and running through about 5 in the afternoon. Demos planned are rabbit butchering, incubators, quilting, sausage making, sassafras tea, worm composting, general farm animal care and the rest is undetermined. Lunch will be covered dish. We will supply the meat and ask everyone to help out with the fixins. Please bring whatever drinks (non alchoholic) you will want throughout the day. Also, we would appreciate a head count so we will be prepared for all who come. Please email me if you wish directions. Robin

    Big Bummer!! I am currently working full-time delivering very rural mail (I'm a Part-timer; but my boss had surgery not too long ago) so I won't be able to make it unless I pull some strings. I AM the 'back-up"--& *I* don't have a 'back-up'. LOL
    I will keep an eye on this post, tho & keep 'abreast' of things! Great idea, tho!!
