Preparation is on for the 13th Annual Wander's Farm Fish Fry and Firework's Extravaganza. Notice the words Pre-4th of July are not in there once again this year. Obviously we are already past the 4th. And to be honest this thing has almost crashed and burned at the planning stages several times already. It doesn't help that two of the principal characters are in the opening stages of what proves to be an interesting divorce.

The party is next Saturday, July 26th. Sorry for the very short notice but as I said, the 12th Annual was almost the last Annual.

So if you'd like to come for the party, you are quite welcome. As always, I have a 4 bedroom house and bedspace is available on a first come first served basis and of course we have room for people to set up tents and camp if that is your thing.

It's BYOB although if you are not of legal drinking age, I'd rather you not drink as several of us have Federal and State explosives handling permits that might be in jeopardy if we got a citation for underage drinking or contributing. Expect to surrender your keys if I think you've had too much to drink. No drugs will be tolerated. I might be able to get away with something alcohol related but there may be at least the County Sheriff present and I'm sure he would not look favorably on any drug use.

There are a couple other lodging options available within a short drive if I should have that many people want to show up.

Kids are welcome as are other family members. Just don't expect anyone to provide you with a babysitting service. Other kids of various ages will be present as will people's parents and etc.

Rob, Kenny and I have been fishing sporadically and plan to have a good supply of catfish, bluegill and laremouth bass to fry up. In addition there will be fries, potato salad, sliced tomatoes and all the other fixins you'd expect from a Midwestern picnic. I think I'm picking up a couple slabs of babyback ribs to BBQ as well.

The party should start around 3 and the fireworks will be shot around dark. Afterwards we usually have a bonfire and sit around passing a bottle and telling embarrassing stories on each other. We are picking up about $1000 worth of fireworks on Saturday.

If you plan to attend, just let me know and we can discuss lodging needs. I'm not set up for a bunch of people to arrive prior to Friday night because I live so far away now. But we can always work something out.

It's actually a lot closer to be ing sent now. It's in a box and in my car. This week at work promises to be a lot slow so I'll try to get it out by mid-week.
