Good Time BBQ & Potluck


Are you free next Saturday?  You are invited to a ‘Good Time BBQ & Potluck’. We’d love to have you join in the fun!  A few weeks back, our son Nathan presented a 40 Day Healthy Lifestyle Challenge.  It included gathering with neighbors and friends more often. So, whether you are playing along with the challenge or not, we decided to celebrate summer and invite y’all!  We promised we won’t harass you about the challenge – no agenda at all, just Good Times like the good ole times!

This coming Saturday, July 14, 2018, games start at 4:00 and let’s eat at 5:00.

We have some wonderful street taco guys coming with their big grill for carne asada, chicken and pork. Those guys are fun to watch!  Lemonade, infused water, coffee, tea and hot chocolate will be waiting for you.  How about you bring a side dish?  Salad, appetizers or dessert (and your beverage, if you are so inclined). If you have a favorite chair, bring it along.

It will be very casual so you can join the kids-of-all-ages in a game of kickball in the orchard or toss some Frisbees.  There is dice for Yardzee, Farkle or play croquet ’round the ground squirrel holes. Pick a table and enjoy a game of Pictionary or Dominos. Maybe you have a game you’d like to bring? Or, just relax and have a good time people-watching.  Catch up with your neighbors, meet new ones, or folks who would like to be neighbors one of these days!

Do you play a guitar or musical instrument?  Love to have you bring it, too.  After dark, two campfires will have s’mores available, of course.

Event is at our place on State Park Road (message me if you’d like the address).  Extra parking is planned at the lookout across from us and along Fern Meadow Road, down by our 5th wheel.  You are welcome to pull in our driveway to drop off food and request a shuttle. There will be a porta-potty in the orchard.

Ok, here is the catch:  The taco guys are planning on 100 people.  We don’t want to run out of tacos!  So, please RSVP.

Hope to see you Saturday!

Bonnie and Don


  1. Mucho gracias or for Bastille day oui bien.

    • Hooray, you will make it even more fun!!!

  2. Bonnie,

    How I’d love to come to your old fashioned party on Saturday! Thanks for including me. I won’t be able to come as my time has to be with Jerry. I wrote you that he was put on hospice care three months ago. He continues to decline and I spend as much time as I can with him. It is a heartbreaking journey that we are on.

    Sending my best to you and your family. Would love to hear from you sometime.

    • I must have missed your note about Jerry being on Hospice. So very sorry. They were so lovely to have with my mom. Hope they are a blessing to you and Jerry during this chapter in your lives.
      I’ve been by for photos for you at your folks cabin a couple times, but it was totally down to studs. I just set you the most recent. We have been doing some remodeling here, too and Noreen was to have our drywall guys next. I’ll pop by this week and see what I can get for you.
      I haven’t seen anyone recently at your cabin. Must go inside again real soon! Love and prayers to you dear Alicelynn.

  3. Thank you for the invitation, Bonnie. We are heading to Colorado Wednesday for a minute Beth. Sorry we will miss it!
