What a bunch of
Hello, goste riter........
mean Ghost Writer, here.
Well, ol' Buster Hizsef did it again.
While I was out painting the outhouse, which is evidently what he considers
to be a vacation, He managed to sneak in here and write the 2008 invitements.
I guess there were a lot of people who couldn't make it, on account of they
were still trying to figure out what the "invitement" said!
(note to self: Next year,
install padlock on outhouse, and have Buster Inspect the inside.}
It's probably just
as well, though, because with a 70% chance of rain, we actually had the
musical jam indoors. One might think that this was inconvenient, but,
thanks to the good folks at Cogarville's own KBSR 104.5FM, we made everyone
We would like to offer a very special thanks
to Captain Cobra and his Aquatic Strike Force who were able to soundly
defeat the onslaught of "bogies", the airborne wing of our rival,
WASP. the red menace of the sky and airwaves. In the face of great
personal danger, these brave boys showed great courage, and were relentless
in the persuit of the enemy. So great was their dedication to the
cause, we forgot to attend the hillbilly olympics!
We did, though, have a lot of fun with the
signage construction crew, launching the radio station, setting up for
the outdoor concert, then moving it inside. The best part, we got to get a
lot of the family together, just to be silly and forget our worries for a
while. Hopefully, next year, we'll get to spend some time with even
more of those who are important to us. It has been suggested that
Labor Day weekend would be a good time next year. Can you
believe there are people nutty enough to wand to do this again?!!
We started off planning to just sit around on
the porch and play a little music, and have a couple drinks, (a necessity,
if you have to listen to Ol' Buster's racket), swim a little, throw on a few
burgers, go for a traipse, play a few Hillbilly games, and such, just with
............And there will be plagues, and famine,
and pestilence, there shall be swarms of locust and stinging creatures
to all those who dare to water the lawn in times of drought,,,,,,,,this

Then Ole Buster had this notion to invite a
few friends and customers, just in case the IRS was wondering why A-Pro was
sponsoring the "event". So, of course, A-Pro felt they needed to
have their name on the shirts.........What a bunch of B S!!
Grant and Garreth got to come down a few days
early, which was great! They are the best kids, and we had lots of fun!
We even got to go pawn shopping, a Hillbilly tradition, and of course, went
to a music store! If you have the right equipment, you can generate
enough feedback to irritate mice, gophers, and other pests, as well as
Cameron and Carson came out
for a couple of days, so we did get to go a nice traipse........
All the while, The menaces of
sky, water and land lurked. We had a few potholes in the yard,
from gophers, but either the music ran them off, or the grasshoppers ate
them....along with a good portion of the newly applied house paint!
But none was so fearsome as the red marauders of the sky, who challenged
Cobra's strike force on land and water, alike......For security reasons,
photos of the red marauders are classified, and therefore not displayed.
To Be Continued......
With the onslaught of the "Bogies" under
control, construction was well under way in the Hillbilly Workshop.
We completed the road signs, despite the threat of impending rain, and made
plans to move the concert indoors. With the Hillbilly Workshop being
such a mess, we set up in Buster's Playhouse Studio. Unfortunately,
There was not room for the expected throng, so we had to find a way to make
people listen to ----I mean allow people to hear---- the concert. We
then launched KBSR 104.5FM--The StomP.
We decided on a new format, which no other radio station had tried......All
B S .....All The Time. All
radios in the greater Cogarville area were tuned to KBSR 104.5, listening to
the archives of BarnStomp. We planned to have a bad-donkey car stereo
contest, but the shortage of bad-donkeyed car stereos seemed to be a
bit of a hinderance.......
