At last... It's over...

I'm, still exhausted but I had a great time hosting our second housewarming party at Bag End. I was overjoyed to see so many friends come out to see the place. Freidns drove from Columbus and Michigan and 2 flew in from Baltimore.

The weather was good and almost all the house projects got done. We set up an archery range and I actually got to fire my longbow, which I haven't done in two years. We pulled out the swords and played frisbee hack which is always a blast. Couples took our rowboat, the Vengence, our for romantic rides and the fountain Grim built worked great.

We topped the night off with a fireworks display that was better than I hoped for. One set of fireworks misfired causing some brief concern (panic) but no one was hurt.

There was a mountain of cake and pie and my minion Lindsey brought us an honest to goodness Frozen Custard machine that dispences creamy joy.

I just can;t tell you what a good time I had. I hope those who got to come out did too. If you missed it, well, you suck quite frankly. You missed a good party. But there's always next year! I'm thinking of also doing a bit of a cookout for the Scottish games next weekend. If anyone is interrested, drop me an email.

Thanks again to both you and Rosanna for being such wonderful hosts. The party was fun and the fireworks rocked.

Sorry, I was out of town. You seem to have an uncanny knack for having great parties when I can't come to them.
The schooner thing kicked arse, though, so, I'm not weeping uncontrollably or anything.
(Besides, I just know that Gandalf guy had plans to make me do the dishes.)

I wish we could have come to the party. I would love to go on a good roadtrip to see everyone someday. I had a wedding for my cousin in LA. I didn't know that traffic could be worse than NY. Ok, I have to go plan a free speech demonstration (where did I put that flag and the lighter fluid??)
