Well, you SHOULD get invited for the Annual Summer Wind event, Karen! Let's tell Sue to tell Skip this just must happen. You are the only guest, to my recollection besides us, to have been invited more than once during the photographed years! Did you know that? I haven't heard any fresh plans, but Skip has put the whole thing off to September because Sue told him we'd be gone TWO weekends in August. But when I heard that the crabfeast was scheduled for August 7th, I told Sue we'd truncate our vacation by a day or two so we wouldn't miss sharing crabs with Grace & Karen (having been scheduled to be on Fripp Island SC August 7-15). Now it seems like this whole summer has gone whacky with crumpled plans and the sort (remember the Fells Point gig?). Alas, we should definitely be in South Carolina on the 14th, but how about sometime in the last half of this month?
Looking ahead for us, in this always busy favorite month of mine, Sunday September 5 and Saturday September 18 are already booked for some short daytripping out of town. And I think Cap'n Bafalis is eyeing September as well. That first year we went, in 1995, remember, when our friend Jack and your sister went it was rather chilly on a Sunday afternoon, but it was still loads of fun even with Char in absentia.
I don't suppose we will host our annual September backyard feast this year after last year's fiasco with the boys in the hood crashing ithe late hours and resulting in my brand new camera getting swiped, but I dunno yet. Last year's was sort of impromptu, and...
Well thanks for your sweet note KS. Miss you and hope we find some nice afternoon to get crabby together very soon...
Hey Karenhowya doing, sweetie pie? Heard through the grapevine that somebody were pitching the annual crab feast for August 7. I got really worked up with belly-gurgling anticipation until I heard last night from Dana Hudson that your mom has plans that weekend. Phooey! But can't WE still go? Sue and I head to South Carolina later that week, and Skip's Summer Wind event will follow soon after. So I'd really would like to lobby for the 7th. Dana said she'd go by herself if she had to, so I guess she wants to bite a fat succulent sea crawler in a big way, so whaddya say KS, are YOU IN, OR WHAT? Also heard you might be there last night for Yolonda's kissoff party, and yep, I for one, was pour me another shot disappointed you didn't make it. Guess that new love interest is keeping you under wraps.
Hi Gabriel, it was great to hear from you! I am feeling sort of crabby but I'm sorry to say that I can't go that weekend. Since my mother couldn't go and Kay and David couldn't go, we thought we would try for another weekend in August. I now have plans for the weekend of August 7th. I will be on a boat trip in Annapolis. You guys can still go without me. I thought we would possibly try for the 14th of August. Will you guys be here then or are you going south? If that weekend doesn't work for you, just let me know when you and Sue are free. When is Skip's boat trip? I hope I get invited this year even though I don't work at Always & Forever anymore.
Yes, the new boyfriend has been taken alot of my time but he is definitely work it. I absolutely adore him. I know Dana got a little annoyed that I'm not going because my mother can't go but she doesn't understand that my mother was the one who first planned this thing last summer. She wanted you, Sue, Kay and David to go. It was me who invited Dana and Rick to join us.
Well, I gotta get to work. I hope to hear from you soon. And I apologize for not making it to Yolanda's party. I didn't leave work that night until 8:00 pm and didn't think you guys would still be there. I didn't know that you were going to be there. You know I would have tried my best to come see you. Take care, Karen
