My back is doing MUCH better today. Not 100%, but getting there fast. Thanks for asking!

Arlene, I saw your note about forks and spoons --

I wish someone had said something to me. I know there were plenty of forks to be had because I picked them up from the other end of the table at the end of the day. I brought only a few spoons because I didn't realize that there was any dish that required one. (What did?) But, there's a full kitchen at the church and we could have used some of theirs and washed them.

Like I said, I need to know if there's an issue.

The water supply...

We have had issues with drinks at the last two gatherings. It's partly because of late cancellations. Everyone commits to bringing a food/drink and I'm relying on that. I did attempt to make some last minute adjustments and I was really surprised to hear that we'd run out. I was dying for a bottle when I was calling the gift swap.

I would say that I would take full charge of the water but I just cannot carry it. That means I cannot lift it into a cart, into my car, out of my car, into my house, out of my house, into the church. I'm not complaining, just explaining. (For those of you who do not know, I have chronic back issues.)

Nonetheless, next time we will have more water and probably NO soda. There did not seem to be much of a demand for that since there were only 4 2L bottles and lots left in each at the end of the day. I think I will suggest that we have water and if someone wants a soda, it can come as a personal item. That way you also get the kind you like, which is always another challenge.

I think more than half of the 20c of coffee was drunk, so we'll keep that for now but probably cut back to a smaller pot. We can always make another.

Other food...

I want to address this in general -- I so appreciate that everyone makes a food contribution. It really keeps our cost way down. Honestly, if you add up the contribution to the church, the caretaker, some door prizes, and the cost of the goodie bags, I am almost paying you to come. LOL

I noticed, however, that some promised food did not materialize -- not that anyone went hungry. I do understand that we had this event VERY close to the Buffalo event and it made life hard for a number of us. (I am not singling out the Buffalo group, though.) But, even if you cannot do homemade, please try to bring something in the "line" of what you said you would.

I am considering the alternative of a catered lunch. That will definitely increase the cost and I'm trying hard to keep it way down so that everyone can afford to come. But nothing's decided on that yet and you will have plenty of time for input.

TOD, I want to just quickly run thru some of the items you mentioned...

I am pretty sure that most attendees want to come and do what they are shown. The day is not about thinking creatively! I mean that in the niceest way. Really.

I have noticed that even when there is an option to change a card, most will not even if it's to fix a boo boo. I'm not saying "No" to a challenge, but I remember that we did one in Horseheads and I know that wasn't an enjoyable experience for me. But that's me.

In fact, for the little bookmark M&T that I did, I originally considered asking everyone to use any stamps that were at their table but I realized that they'd have to take them away (plus inks) and that wouldn't have worked well as a fill-in project.

As for the same people doing the M&Ts -- Everyone who does something volunteers to do it. So, IMO it's a choice. I would love to have some new people choose to do a M&T and, in fact, I had a couple volunteer but only after I'd already set them all up.

linda i love the idea of water
put that down as to what i will bring each time! i can lift it no problem. i also brought the" add ins"
and i love love LOVE bring a make & take.
also loved doing the new "technique card"-lets keep that on the list.
as for catering the lunch-my vote is a simple no.
we each love bringing something to share. it's not too much work or cost.
and we love getting the recipes from each other.
plus it does keep the cost down

linda if you must do a catered you need to give those of us that cant afford to do catered (if you decide to go that route) the option of bringing our own lunch and not paying the extra for the catered bc i would certainly rather eat my own food that some catered in that i dont like.

other than that i like all the other suggestions

I'm thinking starting bid-but I have never done Craigslist

I want the chest of drawers
I don't think Craig's List is an auction. Usually the seller posts a price. THey probably have NO idea how much to ask and are hoping someone will come look and then make an offer.

Sorry ladies, I take my mother to Bingo on Monday nights

Now let's get it together before I'm off line for a while..........................the man's name is Frank Crow and he has no idea on how much to sell it for. His 2 sister's are hoping to sell all their mother's things off for the inheritance and to help with costs of things needed to be done. He has started with $8,000 for everything but I know that is too high. I told him I was at a sale of this nature last year when A friend died with no living relatives and it went to a dealer. Most stamps were sold at .50 cents to $1.00. to give him an idea. He has stated that he thought $1.00 - $2.00 was his going price for the stamps. I guess many of the stamps are still in pac kages from the factory. and many items have never been used... I told him we are all like that. I don't have to be in Virigina till the weekend so I may run out to the house just top see what kind of stamps and supplies she has and what shape they are in to help everyonr out. I have many people asking because it could be a good deal if he breaks it up a bit or brings down his price.
The reason I'm going to Virigina this weekend is...my brother died at 9:30 tonight ... got to keep busy .... I'm doing my boss's job this week so busy is not a problem. Mind is a little mixed. If I go tomorrow I will let everyone know what I find. Becky
