Great party

On Saturday we had our annual YRD pig roast, WOW was it great, we had around 200 people present and the whole family worked hard to make this the best year we have ever had.

Many thanks to one hell of a good wife Sheryl for all she did leading up to, during and after the event. It takes a lot of work that no one sees to get something like this to run so smoothly.

The property never looked so good thanks mostly to Shawn (thanks for cutting brush, mowing, painting the Memorial area fence, picking up, making dump runs etc) but also to Jeff (thanks for mending fence) , Kevin (thanks for mowing), Avery (thanks for weed whacking)and Wyatt(thanks for spreading the wood chips in the flower beds), they all worked hard to get the place looking extra nice for our guests.

Brothers Curt and Cody and their wives all pitched in splitting and cutting wood (thanks Jeff and Curt), making flower arrangements (Thanks Donna) organizing, setting up and cleaning up (thanks Nora), gathering stones, relocating refridgerators, buying the kegs (thanks Shawn), getting tables and chairs, getting the fire pit ready (Thanks Cody), doing the last minute things (thanks Hunter, Mel and Morgan) and to all the others who helped in one way or another.

It was sure nice to have my son Shane up for the event and he had a blast as did we all playing Air Soft.

The water slide was a huge hit thanks to Maureen who arranged it's rental, the kids played all weekend on it.

The pig was the best ever thanks to son Pete, he was and always has been our chef for a good number of years, we did pig roasts while Jaime was alive so we have a good lot of them under or belts.

Next year will be even better, YRD V will blow away all the rest in the past and I can't wait.

Our good friend and Web Master Sarah had a cd with 74 pages of journal on it and she will have it up on the site soon. I will try to improve on the frequency of entries and our number one goal for the rest of the year and years to come will be to improve our customer service and shorten our response time answering phone calls and responding to e-mails.

Back to work,
