Pet People Party Part Two!

Everyone must be hung over, because I expected Stacey or Brett to blog about our gathering Friday night at Cancun.

It attendance were: Me,The Boss, Pam and Flyboy, Stacey, The Dragon, Brett, Jeremy, Jennifer (JDT), Amy (k9rescue), Barbara, the new Humane Society President and Stacey Segovia, reporter for The Leaf-Chronicle.

Stacey was celebrating her birthday early (the big 40!) and had some sort of shot known as "Mexican gasoline." They light it on fire and you drink it with a straw. Flyboy had one, but blew out the flame before drinking, even though we told him the flame can't make it up the straw!

There were pitchers of peach margaritas, strawberry daiquiris and good old plan margaritas on the rocks!

I think I offended Pam, because she showed me a picture of her grand kids and I said, "you know I don't like those kind of children!" Pam, they were cute and I was just being me!

Dragon and The Boss made fun of my Yankee accent and the way I said "kitten." I evidently don't pronounce the t's strong enough for the Southern boys.

While we talked pets, we also talked about other things, like Brett and Jeremy's trip to the wilds of North Dakota and how The Boss got kicked out of Erin, Tenn. once as a rabble-rousing teenager.

Maybe someone can add a photo to this topic? Stacey had her camera, but maybe she lost it as she was drinking and wearing the birthday sombrero!

So, anyone who wants to come to our next adventure, keep reading! All pet-lovers are welcome!

Great time Friday night!!! It was great to meet all the pet people I hadn't crossed paths with yet. A shout out to K9rescue--GIRL YOU ROCK!!! A Shout out to Pam and Flyboy ---you are totally cool. The Boss is funny as H*ll-a perfect balance to Sandy. Not to leave folks out, but these were the new people at my end of the table that I got to chat with most. STACEY-Love that hat honey-I think you should wear it all the time.LOL

Okay, I am personally offended here!
Sure I live way down here in GA and probably would not have been able to make the trip to Cancuns, but it would have been nice to have been invited!!!

No I don’t need any cheese to go with my whine.. I will just whine away because my animal friends left me out... Sniff sniff boo hooooooo….

Blogger B said...

somebody get Skeeter a bit of Kleenex--and some Cheese for her whine--and a little peck on the cheek and a hug. We'll forgo the teddy bear and the tucking in and the bedtime story-HAHA--You were there in spirit dear, and I hoisted a glass of peach margarita for you --it wasn't strong, but frozen ,and hurt my brain anyway--so there--I killed brain for you--what more could a pet friend ask for?

I'm with Skeeter. Feelings definatly hurt here!

I don't need cheese either, but some nice violin music maybe?

What is everyone doing for Labor day? If we plan it far enough in advance maybe everyone could come.

Monday, August 06, 2007 11:20:00 AM  
Blogger Sandy said...

We'll all be here, so any of you out-of-towners can come any time. My sister, Daisy, is planning a trip in mid November. How would that be? Of course, Adrienne, you can come whenver you can and we'll plan the party!

Blogger Stacey said...

All right, you whiners, give it a rest!!!! This was a very last minute get together for dinner that B and I decided late on Wednesday. In the beginning, it was just going to be us and Dragon and Sandy, but then replies to my email started showing up late Thursday and on Friday, so our little troop got bigger!!!!!!!! I didn't post anything about it because it was just dinner, no BIG PET PARTY!! But, you know, margaritas got out of hand and flaming drinks were had......

Monday, August 06, 2007 12:11:00 PM  
Blogger Skeeter said...

Stacey, you know the best parties are the non planned ones! I have been known to run off on road trips with less notice! Maybe, just maybe the Saint and I could have hoisted a glass or two with yall… I am somewhat happier knowing that Brett had a brain freeze for me! Why no Teddy Bear? My current bear has so much dried up slobber on it, it is crusty so I could use a new one!

Still sad I was left out… Maybe me and Adrienne will have our own party and not invite yall…(hands on hips with lip stuck out) We will have 'whine', cheese and violin music played by a hunky dude wearing a thong! What ya say Adrienne???

Blogger Sandy said...

Now come on Skeeter. It's not like you and Adrienne would have come for just a dinner with one day's notice all the way from Ga. and Va.! We're all just WAITING for you guys to come to Clarksville! But of course, if you demand an engraved inviation,we can arrange that too!

Sandy, I once drove to Clarksville from Shreveport, LA just to attend a family cookout! Left LA late Friday night and back in LA on Sunday evening! So dont think I would not do it again! After all, I am only 6 hours away now!

Skeeter and Adrienne, I feel your pain as not to even get an invite for the gathering. I know your feelings are hurt. Wifey-pooh leaves me out in the cold more often than I care to remember. I can feel your pain! I want ya’ll (spoken like a true southerner) to know that the both of you are a vital link in the blog. Skeeter and Adrienne provide some of the most in-depth insight from the pet fanatics. Skeeter and Adrienne provide humor, and compassion and open-mindedness. Skeeter and Adrienne even put this ole Dragon in his place when I get too out of control. Oh, poor Adrienne and Skeeter, to be kicked to the curb just because of mileage. I don’t think there is any whining here, just hurt feelings. I, for one, if I knew of the grave mistake, would not have attended. Shame, shame, shame, Miss Stacey for not including Skeeter and Adrienne. And what about Daisylouu? Did Daisylouu get an invite? Or, was Daisylouu kicked to the curb also? Who else was so callously omitted from the gathering? How many other hurt souls are out there?? The Dragon has shoulders available for those in need of comforting.

Monday, August 06, 2007 6:03:00 PM  
Blogger Adrienne said...

Thank you Dragon for those kind thoughtful heart felt words. It's nice to know that someone still cares.

Skeeter, we should invite Daisylou too. Since I'm sure she was also left out.


Ok enough of the pity party! It is great to know that you all care enough to feel some guilt though.

Monday, August 06, 2007 7:23:00 PM  
Blogger Skeeter said...

Adrienne, I bet if Dragon knew that we were not invited, he would have flown to our destinations and let us ride on his big ole strong back all the way there! Oh, you are a true brother Dragon! Bless your little ole fire breathing self! You sure do know how to make a gal feel wanted...

I am over my pity party too Adrienne, I ran out of kleenex! LOL

Monday, August 06, 2007 7:59:00 PM  
Blogger Stacey said...

Okay, gag...barf. I think I'm going to puke now. What a disgusting love triangle this is!! But, Skeeter, you better watch it. Daisylouu strikes me as the jealous type.

Skeeter, I just want to know why you were in Shreveport???? And, do you remember PLAIN DEALING??? If you drove from Shreveport to Clarksville, you must have gone through it. (Unless you went across north Louisiana into Mississippi, instead of up into Hope and on through Little Rock and that way.) I must know!!! That is my home stomping grounds. My brother lives in Shreveport and my Dad is still in Plain Dealing.

Do tell......

Ah, Hubby (now EX) joined the Air Force and our assignment was Barksdale AFB. That is also where I divorced him and met the Saint which was also in the Air Force! I lived there for 3 years. I worked downtown in a HUD office handing out houses, did PR for Chuck E. Cheese then finally a Pharmacy Technician for a drug store. Loved that job and hated to leave it but the Saint got out of the Air Force and we moved to VA for a few months until his job in CO happened. Yep, I know your stomping grounds or should I say, I use to. That was a long time ago, say 17 years ago when we left…

Hey, and Skeeter, if the flyboy doesn't want to come, you can fly solo! Bring a girlfriend!

Tuesday, August 07, 2007 10:30:00 AM  
Blogger Skeeter said...

Okay Sandy we are not Spouse swapping here! Pam keeps the Flyboy and I will keep the Saint, thank you very much!

No friends down here. I live out in the country and don’t work outside of the home. I know a few of the Saint co-workers wife's but not that friendly with them. Where would I find friends but on the hometown Pet Blog!!!

Adrienne, and Skeeter. Yes if I have known that the two of you were so neglected, I would have spread my dragon wings and swoop down to pick the two of you up from neglect city and joyfully let ya’ll ride me to your destination. How awful it must have been not to get an invite. I’m glad ya’ll are getting over the despair of the ordeal.

Miss Stacey, stay out of this. You are the one that has caused two lovely souls to be traumatized. You better clean up your puke now before one of your precious pest gets into it. Oh, what’s this about Plain Dealing? I hope you always deal from the top of the deck.

Sandy, I feel I walked into the middle of a movie. What’s this about the girls bring a girlfriend? Well, that could be very interesting?

Skeeter, glad to know your not spouse swapping, and you will keep the Saint. I will keep My Lady of Dreams, or is that the BFH.

I figured Dragon would pick up on the "girlfriend" thing. men like that stuff.

Wednesday, August 08, 2007 10:00:00 AM  
Blogger Sandy said...

Sorry about the spouse mix-up Skeeter! And you can always drive up by hourself!

Yes, Dragon would hone in on the innocent "girlfriend" remark. Men.

Wednesday, August 08, 2007 10:40:00 AM  
Blogger Skeeter said...

Okay Dragon, you have my attention. What is BFH???

I "bet" Stacey would never deal from the bottom of the deck! LOL

Hi, I'm back.
Sandy, No girl, you didn't offend me in the least, I know how you feel about human kids and I know you didn't mean anything negative at all. Thanks for saying they're cute, they really are adorable and they are really good kids too. They know how to act, especially in public.
Now to the one who is reallu gonna get it! Stacey!!!!!!! Girl I am gonna kick your a$$ so bad for posting that ophoto of me looking like that. I know I didn't look my best the other night but oh my gosh, that photo made me look ten times worse than I did!!!!!!!! Why didn't you photo shop over me and just leave Fly Boy? Now I'm too embarrassed to leave the house, in fact I may never leave the house to be seen in public again. That was about the worst photo ever! What were you thinking when you saw it? What am I gonna do with you? Anyone seeing that would never believe that I once was Miss Teen Age Kentucky. Forget the whine, I'm sobbing!!!!!!! Boo Hoo!!!!

Wednesday, August 08, 2007 10:50:00 AM  
Blogger Stacey said...

FINE! I will never post pictures to the blog again, except of my own pets!! Damn crabby women!! Even Dragon didn't complain about his picture being on there!! GEEZ!

Wednesday, August 08, 2007 10:54:00 AM  
Blogger Sandy said...

Stacey, shall I put up the wench photo of you? Hmmmm? Don't get all testy! And Dragon didn't complain because it was a PROFILE. I bet you wouldn't DARE put a full face view, would you? Or one where he's wearing his hated glasses (which by the way look great on him)

It's not the fact that you put up our picture, it's that we didn't like how we LOOK in the picture! Just send it to us next time and see if it meets with our approval. You'll understand now that your going to be 40! and Pam and I are beyond that age, so our pictures get worse and worse and we get pickier! It's vanity pure and simple!

Wednesday, August 08, 2007 12:01:00 PM  
Blogger Stacey said...

Actually, I'm proud of my cleavage, dammit! And, I'm not testy, I just don't like censorship. Call it what you want. If people only framed pictures of their family members that met with the family members' approval, all our desks and coffee tables would be empty! I don't know anybody that likes their own pictures, do you??

I liked the pic of you Sandy, because your mouth was open in a big ole laugh, which is just like you! But, WHATEVER!

I will officially get my panties out of a wad now, but I seriously won't post anybody's pictures anymore. I'm not going to run the risk of pissing somebody off, so I just won't do it. I'll just send emails of the pictures I have and that way the true Pet People can enjoy them.

By the way, Sandy, did your mom give you permission to post HER picture on the blog and put it in the paper??? Or does that rule only apply when it involves YOU??? Inquiring minds want to know.......

Wednesday, August 08, 2007 12:42:00 PM  
Blogger Pam said...

Stacey, you can post any photo of me that you want if it's a good one. Just not the ones where I look so inhuma with that kind of look on my face. I looked like I was ready to lose my dinner or something, it was plain gross! Remember the first photo of me that was posted? I had no problem with it. It might have been smaller than this one but at least it didn't make me look terrible. I agree with Sandy, just let us look at them first then if we look good in the photo it will be fine. Ok? I did look like I might have been smoking a little something there didn't I? eeeoowww.

Blogger Skeeter said...

Dang Stacey, maybe I am glad I was not invited to this party after all. Maybe my big butt might have been posted with top billing! LOL.

Okay testy women, at the next get together, (Which I have been invited to), lets all wear our evening gowns, get nails and hair done with a quick trip (compliments of Dragons back) to a Hollywood stylist in L. A. and then lets all sit prim and proper and have our pictures snapped for the Blog! Give me a break, we are not typical Southern Belles here on the Pet People looking for a beauty contest are we??? We are Wenches! Stand tall and be proud you Wenches!

The pictures showed me that y’all were having so much fun you did not even know a camera was aimed on you. Now that is what a get together is all about in my opinion! Get over your perfect selves and be the proud wenches we are!!!

Wednesday, August 08, 2007 5:44:00 PM  
Blogger Sandy said...

Stacey is being a big baby! We WANT you to post pictures, even of US, but we simply want to see them first!! Is that too much to ask???????

And I told you, the main reason I wanted it removed was because of THE BOSS. Must I make him call you and tell you how he'd have a fit if it was up there????

Not stop with the hurt wittle feelers and "I'll never post a picture again" and get over yourself you wicked wench!

CAT FIGHT. Can I have a front row seat? I want to watch.

Skeeter, I'm with you. They just need to get over their "perfect selves". I know I'm not perfect and don't try to portray myself as such. Unlike others.......

Cat fight. Can't wait. Maybe they'll come out kicking and screaming and gouging in the mud. Oh wait a minute, this sounds like a Dragon Enterprises opportunity here. I must start printing tickets. Maybe we can get Pacman to come be the referee. It's right up his alley.

Dragon is such a hypocrite when it comes to pictures. He likes only profiles of himself and doesn't like pictures of himself in glasses. So, I will pay $10 to anyone who gets a full face view of him in his glasses and we'll post THAT on the blog and see if he sings a different tune! Then we'll see who has to get over whom!

Thursday, August 09, 2007 10:48:00 AM

OOH, it's like a bounty on Dragon's face. I like it!!!

Will have secret covert camera in suitcase!

Blogger dragon said...

Sandy,I'm such a hypocrite when it come to pictures?????????

I believe I never said a word about pictures, and I'm a hypocrite??????

Skeeter and Pam, No need for secret covert cameras. I have plenty of pictures of myself that I am proud of. I would happily share any of them with my wenches.

Thursday, August 09, 2007 8:18:00 PM

I recall burning some Sexy pictures of me taken way back when. With my current weight gain, I think I would like to see those again for inspiration!

Dragon, You said in refernce to our complaints: "Skeeter, I'm with you. They just need to get over their "perfect selves". I know I'm not perfect and don't try to portray myself as such. Unlike others."

So there. I am right. As always. Would you get over your "perfect self" if I posted YOUR picture, full face, glasses on? Ha. :)
