I have to pace myself these days with the preparations, cleaning, and food prep. Once upon a time I could have pulled one of these things together in a couple of days, but with back surgery looming and my condition only getting worse each day, it takes me a full week or longer, and even then I nearly kill myself. I'll be glad when this surgery thing is over, but I have no idea right now of when that will be; America's health system is so fucked up. I'm in the process of filing all of the convoluted applications and qualification forms. But I love holding parties. I love all the running around, staging the house, planning the menu, and all that, so I face into the wind and just do it, my happy Hydrocodone bottle in hand...
It just occurred to me that I just gave Barefoot a bit of free publicity... Maybe, when I go to Brown's to buy the Bubbly, I'll insist on getting it at a reduced price. Nah, that would never work.
Above is a picture of Nettl with a poster that Michael, a college friend of hers, had made. It's on foam board and looks amazing! He's even promised to make one of my cover when it's my turn.
