Mad-chiqui-fledge-fest

MadMom's picture

Just in case anyone else plans to be in north Texas around the 4th of July, I'm hoping to get Fledge and Chiqui over here, maybe SallyBR if she hasn't left or isn't in the midst of packing, TXGal (if she can find that highway north out of Houston) and anyone else who wants to get together.  Let me know if this interests any of the lurkers...I thought there was a lurker from Fort Worth around here not too long ago...and anyone else.  We can go prowl the Central Market and just generally wreak havoc on the local populace, plus if anyone wants to show off their gorgeous Rubenesque figure, there's always the infinity pool!  (And I do drive-bys of the big house just to show how the other .0001% lives!)

Were you referring to me as the 'Ft Worth' lurker? I simply don't have near the info to add that you all do! If I get the day off(4th), I already will have plans, but if I get the weekend off too, then I can go visit. If anybody else has a drive, I'm guessing they wouldn't just stay for the day (I hope!). That would make it too short. But then, I guess someone would be hosting for more than one event. That's way not fair, either.  Oh, I don't know what I mean!


Just count me interested!

Gosh, MadMom I would love to, but I find it almost impossible


First, we have Alex with us and he has these baseball games almost daily (5 times this week, just to give you an idea..... LE SIGH, I don t even like baseball... :-)


the 4th of July is a big holiday that he enjoys a lot and wants us to have some friends over to play in the backyard and have some hamburgers or something before going to see the fireworks


I will sit and watch your planning for the Mad-chiqui-fledge-fest and if there is any chance I can accommodate things on this side of the border, I'll let you guys know

Just to clear things up, I think chiqui will be up the day after July 4 (I suppose that would be July 5, wouldn't it?), but I don't know how firm her plans are.  I'm assuming that everyone has plans for the 4th, but thought we might get together on Saturday or Sunday...and yes, I had forgotten my Ft. Worth lurker's name, but glad you are still lurking...and hope you will be able to join us.

MM....I am planning on driving up on the 5th.....don't know how long the drive is yet.  Have to put my Navigator in for repairs.  The mother of one of Princess' friends ran into my car to avoid getting hit by another one so I will be car-less on the first and second.


I'm going to work for my old boss on this Thurs and Fri. to help her out in the shop.  Seems while I was gone three of her major cooks resigned....none related to the others...just coincedence...did I spell that right Jean????


Oh well, if all is ok with Fledge's sister-in-law...I'll be there on the 5th.

Chiqui...and Fledge...I have two spare bedrooms, so if you need to stay here, you're certainly welcome.  (My DH says the "hot roll lady" and the "parrot lady" are welcome here...LOL) - just let me know if you need a place to crash.  Chiqui - how long will you be able to stay?  We have to at least visit Central Market while you're here, and you should bring a bathing suit and we can just shower my DH with our collective beauty in the pool.

Okay, this is the plan so far.  Chiqui will drive up Sunday or Monday after the 4th. She is free for bout 5 days.  We can fine tune this as time gets closer.  Also waiting for TXgal to get in gear some kind of way.

Great!  Just let me know what's happening when.  I have a Dr. appt sometime the second week in July, but otherwise, am free as a bird.

Looks like it is going to happen.  Chiqui and Halloween Baby (fingers crossed) MadMom, sometime, TxGal waiting on you cha, What are your plans from 5th to 10th? And Teresa, we will see whether we drive to MadMoms or stay here.  Either way you are welcome. Am I missing anybody that might be interested?

p.s. no cussing in front of my parrot.

We're off to the ranch this p.m. Busy weekend as it is haying season (we've had no rain up there and are pretty desparate for every bale we can make.) I've already put dibs on the air conditioned JD!


Hope to be finished by Monday. If so, I might be able to hook up with the "fest-ers" after that. Keep your phone handy.

Okay, I'm ready, willing, and able to "fest" whenever the group gets here.  I definitely want to join in the antiquing trip (not that I have a square inch of space to put another antique into, but just because it's fun!)  Just let me know if you want me to come there or if y'all want to come here.  You definitely should make at least one Central Market foray...and if it takes too long, everyone can bed down here for the night, after a nice dinner and Bailey's in the hot tub...hmmmm...sounds like a plan, to me!  Glad to hear TXGal might be able to make it...I have to hear all about that fabulous kitchen, plus, if her husband sails, my DH might just bore her to tears with tales of our sailing adventures...no, don't tell her that, she just might not come!

Bailey's and a hot tub is hard to resist.  I could use one now.  I am pooped and parrot feathers make for extra work.  Everything is ready for guests. 


Chiqui......and HalloweenBaby, please report in! Chiqui is going to mapquest it here.  Should I be concerned?


p.s. Dixie, couldn't you get away to visit your sister in Terrell?  We could drive by and pick you up on our way to MadMom's or like kidnap you.  Don't worry, I will behave.  Promise. No axes allowed.

Well alrighty then, spoke with Chiqui and Halloween Baby today and they will be here Monday.  I am looking forward to waiting on them hand, foot and hairs.  I am going to spoil them rotten.


MadMom, I will call you on Sunday when the house is quiet.


Also, if anyone has been trying to get in touch with either of these ya-yas, their puter is messed up.  Email me here for any messages for them that may be replys. Jean, MadMom or TXgal have the correct addy.


And Hambiscuit, I took more pics for you.  Everybody is out skiing on the lake and I am here baking cookies, yes, baking.

Can't wait to see everyone!  Did y'all ever decide if you want to come over to the big city for a day?  How long will they be in God's country?  Is TXGal coming up?  Inquiring minds want to know...

She is bringing me french bread, and has been to Doignacs.......never could spell that. I am shampooing carpet.

I'm on the phone with her right now - she's looking for a good gumbo place in Alexandria! I can't help her.

What the hell is she doing that for, she can get gumbo at my house.  I am insulted.

Of course, since I won't come within ten feet of a shrimp, I'm the obvious one to ask for a recommendation about gumbo!  Poor chiqui.  Unfortunately, when I'm on the road, all I want to do is get from point A to point B, so it's fast food for me.  I would be no help, even if I did like shrimp.
