    Jair posted his very nice "philosophical thoughts" thread (not to be confused with "Deep Thoughts by Jack Handey" from SNL), and several people agreed people may be feeling a bit testy due to Winter having set in and Spring being a good ways away. There's only one good cure for that, and it's a Party on the Porch! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img] [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

    So we'll get BossHoss out of the tub, move the ponies out of the kitchen, get the fluffy dogs out of the rockers, and have HuntJumpSC fire up the still. We can unwrap the Christmas lights from HSM, start making baleing twine and duct tape decorations, and maybe even invite the Stair Sitters up for a quick taste of brew. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img]

    Now Kellybird -- I said a taste, not a guzzle!

    Kachoo, where are you? Oh, that's right -- Malaysia. But, c'mon the rest of you Canadians! You know how to have a good virtual party!

    Hey Portia, I'm 16. When would one qualify as a porch sitter, hmmm? Sounds like fun up there!

    Sparkles, that's exactly what this is -- its the COTH Annex of the old Esearch Porch. We rebuilt it a few months ago after Esearch crashed and changed. We haven't used it much recently, but it's about time to kick it back up.

    ErinB, at 16 you qualify as a Stair Sitter, I think. You'll have to check with Jo, Kellybird, Reagalmeans, and Becca -- they pretty much control the stairs. To get a rocker on the Porch you have to be muuccchhhh ooolldeeer.

    Like heidi, or Colin, or Jair, or Robby Johnson. They're old enough for the Porch. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_razz.gif[/img]

    JB, drop the dog and get the pink pills away from Boss Hoss!

    I was on E-search, too... that's why I'm not in a huge state of confusion, lol!

    Portia- Darnit! Well can my horse sit on the porch? She's about 33 in people years. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

    Well, dang it Portia, move over and let me sit down. I'm cranky and crabby, but I think a good deep swig of whatever brew is being served might just cheer me up just fine. I have my fuzzy socks on and brought along the quilt that my aunt made many years ago, to wrap up in, so I'm all ready to settle in and "set a spell."

    Sorry Erin, the only horses that get on the Porch are the real retirees, like Cougar 2's Wubs. Louise's horses can come on the Porch, too, since they're both retired.

    Louise, pull up a dog to warm your feet, lend us a kitten to warm our hands, and have a swig of Cider to warm the insides. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img] Then tell us some cute kitten stories. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

    I'll bring the kittens along, for sure. Betsy would just love to warm your hands, and she'll be glad to lick them raw at the same time. Marissa dun't much cotton to laps, but she will be glad to play egyptian statue and pretty up the place.

    Actually, they have been pretty good kitties. Three weeks now, and not one thing destroyed or even damaged. Pretty good, huh? Jaime Lynn did a good job of raising them.

    A good party is always a good thing! And quite frankly, I'm joining Louise. I'm in those lovely winter doldrums. Sick of School, sick of snow, sick of winter, and i miss my pony-pies dreadfully. So I'm all for clambering up those stairs again- I need it!

    AND- Luckily for all you elite stair-dwellers, and the less fortunate lawners (though still feel your immense priviledge by merely being allowed to attend such a faboo party just on the lawn!) I have brought some lovely Diet Coke (essential) and the Hot Chocolate is cooking (yes, we even have marshmallows) Sarah, I believe you are responsible for the cookies. Kelkel, you get the after dinner mints, and Jo, I believe you will have the flatware.

    So have no fear, even though we are still too linber and youthful to be on the covetted porch rocking chairs, we'll enjoy ourselves, even if we are looking through the window frames like sad begger children..and we all know I sometimes sneak up and pretend to be a little dog in the corner and Portia sneaks me some of that great Porch food every now and again..if ya'll are nice, I might even share..

    I think not! tut-tut. The only Alcohol we ever touch is when we eat the worm from the bottom of the tequilla bottle!

    And YOUR [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif[/img] Top stair?? I think not, darling!!

    I think that me, Clemsonrider and someone else were on the top step...then Kelsey, ErinB and Sarah on the second....

    Remember you claimed the bottom one so you could help control the lawn kids.....

    [B] POOOOOOOORRRRRRRRRTTTTTTTIIIIIIIIIIAAAAAAA!!!!!!
    [B]

    (yes, Becca is whining now!!) Where are you to defend my claim?? *gasp*

    Louise?? Duffy? SoEasy? DMK? Hattie? (I'm becoming mildly panicky by now..) Anyone out there?? You guys know my claim!!

    (my oh my, Becca has had a rotton day and she has resorted to whining...its a sad sad day)

    Could it be that I actually was generous enough to watch over the dogs? That just doesn't ring true as a Beccaism.. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif[/img]

    Sorry guys, I think that the top step is big enough for all who DESERVE to be there. Hmmm, now, who has done something nice for me lately?

    Sparkles101, sounds good to me! All you younger steplings, scoot please. The older ones sit nearest to the porch so we can listen in on the conversations above. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img] Which is exactly why the youngers sit near the bottom. Some things you just don't need to hear yet. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif[/img]

    Justbay- Goody, 'cause I have dip. Haha. What else are we missing...?

    Sandstone, I see you sneaking off with that. Tsk tsk.

    *~Erin~*
