For our gathering we went with the Asian Flair. For appetizers I made lettuce wraps and edamame peas. YUMO. some of my most favorite things. We decided that wonton soup and fried rice would be sufficient for dinner (the wraps are pretty filling) and not as time pressing. (there was 14 people). Ryan, Rachael and I sat down to make the wontons and were surprised how quick it went for a time consuming project. YAY US! Ryan and Rachael did the rice. There was so much rice, it was ridiculous.
I think everything turned out really well and I hope everyone else enjoyed the feast.

We came to the cabin in the woods by chance
The Drummond clan gathered just to do that chicken dance
To Helen Georgia the clan they did come
With rafting, tubing, and mini-golf; we had fun
We talked and we laughed our sides they did hurt
A few were missing, Patricia, she’s such a flirt.
The great clan master lead the way
He hopes he’ll be a grandpa someday.
Mother was here but not in body or mind.
Thanks to mother she bought us the wine.
Melissa and Steven brought much to the table
We all contributed; even roger with his fables.
Doug and Jessica got us this place and took care of the rent
Amazing how such 1 small ball can leave such a big dent.
The mountains we climb one step at a time
We played pennies for keeps, we should of used dimes.
Tired and wornout, most of us are over the hill
Spry in our old age; “does anyone have a spare blue pill?”
We climbed the mountains a huffin and puffin
Our feasts were like thanksgiving, just lacking the stuffing.
Bill was on food patrol, no food was allowed to sit too long
We all watched “so you think you can dance” and sang with the songs
The wii game of tennis and bowling was a big hit
The dinners were great they came in a kit.
We ate and we ate, bill was the food nazi by choice
Not really sure but; “eat shit and die” may be grounds for divorce.
Nephews, nieces, uncles and aunts; we all wear different hats
In the woods if you listen closely you can hear bill say “are you going to recycle that?”
The stairs we stepped and not a step was missed
Steven went a leaping and a rock he did kiss
Unlike as kids our words to each other were oh so kind
Trapsing in the woods 1 geo cache we did find.
The weather was perfect we had a wonderful summer.
The juries still out in who acted dumber.
The hot tub was cozy, quaint and a chance to get away
The cares of the world just memories we all just wanted to stay.
Our packing all done, our time together must come to an end
The Drummond clan came together and we left as friends.

Everyone is invited to the Pool Party at Dan's this Sunday. The pool is setup and ready to go!
He is going to be having a double elimination water volleyball competition, so get your teams organized and sign up.
Remember safety first...do not go into the deep end unless you are a excellent swimmer. Also, no more head first'n it down the slide. Doris learned that lesson for us.
Don't forget your sunscreen and raft. RSVP to Doris as soon as you can.

Well the cabin wasn't what we expected. Turns out the cabin wasn't wheel chair accessible. We had to leave grandma in the car. She didn't mind it though. Every once in a while we would take her a diet coke and potato chips. She was happy. During commercials we would go outside and let her know what was on the lifetime channel. She had a few books to read so she was in her "happy" place. Turns out there are bears in the woods around the cabin so they gave us strict orders not to leave food outside. The only logical place to put the trash was in the car with grandma. Well late last night we heard all this racked out by the car. We could all hear the bears growling . The outside lights didn't work so none of us wanted to go outside. In the morning we were all worried. There were all these scratch makes on the glass. Funny thing though the scratch marks were on the inside. .......... Dan
Well the Drummond Clan started out with a BIG splash. Joe, Doug, Jessica, Steven, Melissa, Doris & Dan were the brave ones. The "others" kind of chicken out and stayed back at the cabin-in-the-woods. What started out as a 3-mile tour was something else. Well S.S.Minto #1 on the blue team was Joe, Doug, Jessica,Steven & Melissa. In S.S. Minto #2 was Doris & Dan. We all couldn't fit in one boat so Doris & I were on the green team. Yes our guide had green hair with multi colored toenail polish. I guess we were on the "happy" team. I told him all about Paula, so we were "in". No we didn't come out, just in.

After many long and arduous hours of looking and test driving and bugging Joey to death (and not to mention my assortment of stress-related physical maladies I'm so proficient at) , Dustin and I have finally purchased a second car. Dustin is now officially the Jetta Knight he always dreamed he'd be. Oh, and to anyone wondering, the color is "gunmetal gray."

- 1 Good sized cooked hoot owl, boned and chopped
- 1 Stalk celery, diced
- 1 Onion, chopped
- 1 tb Oil
- 10 oz Package frozen broccoli, cooked and drained
- 1 c Sour cream
- 10 1/2 oz Can cream of hoot owl soup
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Warm tortillas
- 1 1/2 c Hoot owl broth
- 1 c Grated rat cheese
Mix the chopped owl, celery, onion, oil, cooked broccoli, sour cream, hoot owl soup, salt, and pepper together. Then you let them sit while you and the boys play "Never beat your Mother with a Great Big Stick." Be sure you don't play more than 6 choruses. Roll all of this stuff into the warm tortillas and place them in a baking dish. Then pour the hoot owl broth over them. You cook all of this stuff in a 325F oven for 20 minutes, or 3 choruses of "Dirty Me, Dirty Me, Oh How I Hate Myself." Make sure the onions are done. Then the last 5 minutes of cooking, place the grated rat cheese on top. Dish out the warm tortillas and hot sauce. Now then, if the moon is in the "getgone" and the wind blows in snuffs, there ain't goin' to be no hoot owls. In that case, you get Ernest T. Bass to steal you a good sized chicken and ya put that in instead. If you do that, while the chicken is cookin' you get the boys and play 6 choruses of "Don't Dance on the Table Charlene You Stepped in My Collard Greens." Serves 6.
mmm....mmm...dems som good eatin...

That couldn't use just a bit,
Whole kernel or cream,
Corn makes it extreme.
Lasagna to meatballs,
Apple Pie to pork roast,
Without the help of corn,
It would all taste like toast.
Whoops. error on my part,
Toast is a bad sample,
Because inside our house,
Toast and corn is a staple.
Marshmallows can try,
but they just can't compare,
They just turn to mush,
When corn is always there.
What does is matter,
Eight cans or thirty,
In less than six hours,
We'll need just as many.

It is white, with a blue bimini and works great as a storage device.
If you have an idea of the whereabouts of our missing craigcat, please contact Dan.
Thank you for your support.
While the mowing width of the standard line trimmer is far shorter than that of riding lawnmower, one must never underestimate its usefulness in some situations...
Until Craftsman comes out with their amphibious lawn tractor, areas directly adjacent to bodies of water should probably be manicured with a smaller, more agile device.
Let us all learn from Dan.
