Pet People Party Planning by Stacey








Okay, kids!!! I have been anointed the Social Director for the Pet People. Don't ask me how that happened!! I think it should be "B"! But, I don't get paid enough to think. So, that may be my problem. I would like to apologize for not inviting the UNIVERSE to dinner on Friday!!!!! GEEZ! Get over it already!!! (Adrienne and Skeeter, you know who you are.) And just to correct Sandy, she did not say KITTEN. She said KI-UN. Trust me, their were NO "T's" in the word the way she said it. They didn't have to make fun of her. She did it herself.
So, to make amends, I want to invite all our Pet People friends to the FIRST BIG PET PEOPLE PARTY!! A real party, not just dinner out. Dinner is great for small groups, but as B noted in his reply to Sandy's post below, you can really only talk to those folks sitting near you. So, next time, we want to eat and then be able to socialize with all our pet friends.

Here is the basic preliminary outline. We are looking at Friday, August 24th. Friday is best for several reasons, and if you need to know, I'll tell you. But, trust me, Friday is best. This date is far enough out so that people can put it on their calendar and actually plan to attend. But, it isn't too far away. Our fearless leader still wants to have us out to the country for a party on the new deck (just don't tell the Boss), and wants to do that in September sometime, so it will be cooler than it is now. So, this will give us a fun activity to carry us over until then.

Now, the real planning begins. B and I have discussed the crew getting together at a restaurant for dinner and then folks heading over to his and Jeremy's pad for FUN (drinks, games, chit chat, WHATEVER). Here is where I need the input of my Pet People friends. Do we want to all meet for dinner as a group, or do we want to just dine on our own??

If we dine on our own, then folks that have things that need to be done after work, before party time, can get those things done. We can all arrange a set time to converge at B's house for the "Madison Street Jamboree". OR, we can all eat together like some of us did on Friday, then convoy over to B's place. Those that cannot make dinner, can come on over to B's at their leisure.

We are planning a BYOB type atmosphere at B's house (much cheaper than drinking out), and smoke free for Pam!! Everyone can bring their own poison and we'll have some munchies! We can bring games, B can spin some tunes, you name it!!

I would like everyone to post their ideas on what they would like to do, and to let me know if the 24th works for them. If you would like to be involved and are not currently in Sandy's Pet People email list, please send Sandy your information. This is strictly for us Pet People, and it would be used to arrange events like this. Once we get down to final plans, it is more efficient to go through email than the blog. You can send your info to her at sandybritt@theleafchronicle.com.




Okay, the pics are collages of Friday's dinner. Dad-burn that Jeremy! He managed to not get in any of them!! SINCE I WAS EDITED BY THE BLOG POLICE, THE TOP PHOTO HAS CHANGED!!! The top one is Barbara and Amy from the Humane Society; Dragon in the insert; then me and my purty hat. The second one is Pam and Flyboy up top; then B, the Boss, Sandy, Jen, Stacy (from the Leaf, not me), and Flyboy; then me on the right (without my purty hat). I will email pics to all of you later!!

Even for all my whining, I couldn't make it on the 24th. But I could make it September. You plan it, I WILL BE THERE!

Okay, I have gone through my box of kleenex, added snot to the bear and am over it! Now I am ready to start plotting how I am going to get the Saint to come to TN for more then expected visits in the weeks and months to come! I am scheduled for Christmas but also need to plan to meet Daisylouu. I would not miss her and Dragons exciting introduction for anything! So it looks like I may have to plan a trip in Nov too! Gee in Aug, probably too hot but hey, if inside, I am all for it! May have to skip the country trot though as 4 visit in a few months might be pushing the Saint over the edge a bit, but a bit of whining on my part with batting Southern Belle eyes may do the trick! Ha, yeah right, we will see..... Count me in on the entire above if you dare let me “once again” join the gang....

Okay, Pam you look as though you have been smoking something. I thought that smoke was not good for you.??? hummmmm

Brett, Flyboy and the Boss...y'all could have smiled for the birdie!

Stacey, I have a big hat and want to know if I can bring mine when I come to TN... Oh, Oh Mr. Car-tier can we have a hat party???

Blogger Stacey said...

Ummm.....Skeeter, Pam said THAT is a different kind of smoke. It doesn't make her allergic. Hee Hee. Girlfriend--you bring on your big hat!!!! We can have any damn ole kind of party we want!!!

I had to remove that HUGE picture of me and the boss.ONE, he would KILL KILL KILL me for it, even though I didn't do it, and two, I looked like crap. Since I am the boss of the blog,I get first approval on any photo of ME. :)

I'll will post more about the party plans later. Rough night at work and I need to get ready to go home!

HUMPH!!! You know Sandy, my mama always told me that if you can't say anything nice about someone, just to not say anything at all. SO...........................................................................................................................................................................................

Okay, I thought I was loosing my mind here with the new picture. I was thinking, wow, I dont remember that one from yesterday! Go get her Stacey... LOL

what is this ...musical snap shots? I'm getting dizzy just trying to keep up!

By the way, I want to remind everyone that is coming to my house on the 24th--my dogs are love monsters, so don't wear anything you don't want covered in slobber and footprints--especially Hines. Don't be suprised if you get a tongue up the nostril from him. They are good babies and will settle in as the evening rolls on. BUT BE WARE-take care-BEWARE (I couldn't resist an old Bela line)

Blogger Sandy said...

Yes, I AM the blog police! Captain Sandy! Really, The Boss would have had a fit, and sometimes he does look at the blog, just to see what I'm saying about him. If he even saw the little one he might be upset, so consider yourself lucky that I did not remove that one as well!

Remeber how touch the Dragon was over his fan story photos? Worse than a girl!

I live here in town and I didn't know about this...

But... hubby works nights so I can't make the next one either. I'll just read all the blogs and enjoy seeing everyone else's comments!

Hey, B, you are already dizzy!! Give that up already.

Tuesday, August 07, 2007 12:06:00 PM

Dizzy---but faithful
Alice-we can make arrangements to get you to and from the party--al you have to do is say the word and your Limo awaits.

Thanks B! You and all the bunch are sweeties!

Blogger Daisylouu said...

Hey B, can you drive to Pennsylvania and get me?? I'm so jealous. But I promise to get there sometime in 2007. Let me know when is good for you Skeeter, I was originally thinking of coming Nov 10, 11, 12, 13-ish. I'm not having any luck finding flights I like.....plus I'm waiting for the UPS guy to deliver the ebay Jets thong I bought Dragon. Heck, maybe I'll buy one for everyone! NOW THAT WOULD BE A PICTURE WORTH POSTING!!

Oh, and I promise to bring LOTS of pictures of SANDY the blog boss. I have numerous ones that would make you all pee your thongs.

thats over the mason dixie line daisylou, and I've already crossed once this year--it;llbe at least another ten years before I do it again-LOL

Blogger Stacey said...

YAY!!!!!! I love pictures! Even if we can't post them, we can see them and mock her loudly!! HUMPH!!!

Don't come Nov 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th weekend!!! I'll be in DC with my women veterans group for the 10th anniversary celebration of the WIMSA memorial (Women In Military Service to America)!!!! I would not want to miss the Daisylouu experience. Thongs and all!! Of course, the Nov 11th weekend will be busy for me as well, but at least I'll be here. There will be the Marine Corps Birthday Ball, Veterans Day parade in Clarksville and Nashville, etc.....

I could not live with myself if I missed Dragon and the Jets thong!!!!

Wednesday, August 08, 2007 9:57:00 AM  
Blogger Skeeter said...

Nothing on the calendar in Nov except a possible visit from the Saints family over Thanksgiving...

Oh my gosh! You found the thong Daislouu! I found one also but was too cheap to pay the high price of admission! Now if I knew I would be seeing it modeled, then I would have paid the price! Tee Hee. Y'all think Guinevere will let us witness the “Trying On” of the Jets Thong??? Oh, just where is that whip…

Wednesday, August 08, 2007 10:36:00 AM  
Blogger Sandy said...

Well sis, you better pick a date soon so I can put in for vacation! Can't take in Thanksgiving week, as that's taken, but mid November is okay, or early December before the Christas rush. By birthday is Dec 13, so around that time would be good too.

Daisy, you can drive and pick up Adrienne in Va and Skeeter in Ga and come together!

Wednesday, August 08, 2007 10:42:00 AM  
Blogger Sandy said...

Oh, and I too have lots of pictures. In fact, I have albums of my whole life, which includes Daisy. I think I have one of her in her bra getting ready for her first wedding. Let's see...what else.....I'm sure I can dig something up.

OOHHHH, sisterly dirt. I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Your all sick and preverted...and I love it!

Blogger Pam said...

I'm just sick, and I mean sick over that photo of me!!!!!!!!!!!! If any of you tell me that I actually look like that then I'm going to be so depressed that I can't ever show my myself in public again! I already basically said this on the other blog entry but I repeat myself because taht was one of the absolute worst things I've ever seen! I can't believe Stacey put it up there. Sandy got to take a bad one of her off so I need to approve any future photos too!

Wednesday, August 08, 2007 12:54:00 PM  
Blogger Pam said...

P.S. Someone did take another one from the other end of the table and I was smiling and surely it looked a bit better than this one. Ok, I'll shut up about it now I promise.

You don't look any worse than I have over the last few months since I made my "debut" on the blog. Have faith--if there is a truely bad look--I usually have it--of course I'm usually drunk-but the point is CAMERAS LIE.

Wednesday, August 08, 2007 3:01:00 PM  
Blogger Skeeter said...

Pam, we all look like crap in unexpected snap shots! I think you just look a bit overtaken by the smoke! Tee Hee...Love ya girl just as you are!!! Just hope no one ever snaps when my big buttocks is bent over! Oh, do digitals have wide angle lens??? LOL

Blogger Skeeter said...

I am going to stutter here and make a repeat...

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!!!

Blogger Adrienne said...

What the ????? I know I'm not going crazy! Everytime I get on the page pictures are missing. They were not that bad. Nobody ever likes pictures of them selves. I know I don't. I avoid camera's like the plague. The Foreman complains that there are hardly any pics pf me around. HA! Time to leave it alone Blog Master.

Wednesday, August 08, 2007 7:23:00 PM  
Blogger Stacey said...

Thank you Skeeter and Adrienne! That was my point, NOBODY likes pics of themselves, so if I can only post "approved" photos, none will ever get up there. I thought the same thing as Skeeter, they were fun pics of us having a good time. But, apparently not that good, huh??

Wednesday, August 08, 2007 10:07:00 PM  
Blogger Pam said...

Stacey, now don't get YOUR panties in a wad now too. I was having a great time but take another look at that photo and you can plainly see why I was embarrassed. I look like Jabba the Hut! But it's ok I am over it and it ain't gonna be the last time anyone sees me hopefully and they the next photo will see of me will show I'm not that ugly,ha.
Brett and Skeeter, thanks for making me feel better too, I love you guys, and Stacey I love you too of course!!!!!!!!

I officially got my panties out of a wad yesterday. So, PBLTTTTT!!!!

Thursday, August 09, 2007 10:29:00 AM  
Blogger Pam said...

PBLTTTTT!!!! back at ya! Good thing, if you hadn't got them panties out of them wrinkles by now I'd have to kick your butt! And by the way thanks for taking the Jabba the Hut photo off. And one more thing girl, you know I really do love ya!

Daisylouu, I must tie myself to a post so that you can give me 50 lashes for not responding to your post sooner! I am so honored to be showered with such lavish gifts from my adoring wenches. I will wear the Jets thong with honor and pride.

Skeeter, the whip is right here in my lair. And the answer to your question is YES. Of course the wenches can witness the wearing of the Jets thong. I would not want to deprive you of such joy. I think I might like it myself.

In fact Dragon is a "dirty white boy"!

Anybody remeber who sings that one?

Saturday, August 11, 2007 2:51:00 PM  
Blogger Skeeter said...

That would be the group "Foreigner"
I have one of their 8-Track tapes, titled “Foreigner 4”
You think that is funny? I still have the 8-Track player and it works too!

Saturday, August 11, 2007 6:07:00 PM  
Blogger Pam said...

Well you go girl and you are right about the group who sings "Dirty White Boy" We do know that fits Dragon to a "T" now doesn't it?

Thanks Pam, I'm glad you notice.

Can cats sense the heat we are having even if they are inside cats. My cats are strictly inside cats, but are not eating anywhere near as much as they normally do since we have had this heat wave.

Blogger Skeeter said...

Hello Shadowcat and welcome to the Cat Chat!
I hope you see this before it falls off the Blog…
I am not sure the real answer to that question but having indoor cats the past 25 years of my life, I am going to say yes! My cats do not seem to eat as much in the hot summer months. They also tend to have morning play time and rest more the remainder of the day. Even though we have the house freezing at night, they still do not get in bed with us in the hottest of the summer months either. They may have an internal kind of instinct clock that tells them to behave like that. I just don’t know…
