  7. Virtual barn dance in the Waldoboro BC barn to celebrate summer solstice–today and into tomorrow !!

    A shout out to our zany blogger Ashtabulannie/.Hokiemom, who we hear from LedLass, has hurt her wrist on a hike…girl, you can stil read the blogs and join us for the dance !

    I will be coming in, riding on one of Lisa Lane's alpacas–only because Victoria Lesser has returned home and took her Great Danes with her—so I have lost my transport, LOL

    to those new to the blog, some of us spice up the posts once in a while, with imaginary parties–please do not have me locked up..

    • Transportation? We need not look far! The Owl's Head Transportation Museum will not disappoint as it is blessed with all transport types and finery. I think I'll keep it simple and take the teeny stage coach, which amazed me as to just how many riders it could carry. Am bringing my marbled creme cheese brownies, Brazilian potato/vegetable/very hearty salad, and fried cauliflower. It's even good cold. Next?:*xD<3 Kitty

    • I am looking for you in your teeny stage coach, Kitty ! The food you are bringing sounds sooo good ! I will love the Brasileno salad, the cauliflower and the BROWNIES ! Virtual food=no calories, guiltless pleasure….

      LLColeman on June 21, 2012 at 10:47 pm
    • If you ever visit the Owls Head Transportation Museum do take note of the photograph of the standard stage coach used in the 1800's. I tried and tried, but have absolutely no idea how they got so many passengers on that thing–but they did! Lost count! It was mostly an open, dusty ride. There are some wonderful transport examples there. In truth, I chose IT, because it's probably the last thing I'd want to be transported upon, either dead OR alive! ;) By the way. I'm really enjoying all this virtual food and libation–no calories–no curfews–all plaids puleeze–and the PLEASURE that virtual skeeters can't bite!!! Whew!! That's a good thing 'cause anywhere I go, those bugs find me first! :So.0:p Kitty

    • Kitty
      You must be feeling better?:)! All that food sounds sooooo yummy! LL spiked watermelon:)o.0
      Lilly great games-what fun:)!
      I will add sparklers to light up the nightime fun-I know this will be a long party! at least if we are still standing enough to dance after eating the spiked watermelon?:)o.0:o

    • All the time, Ruffy! I'm sure I'll think of something else to throw in, while I'm cooking. Somebody asked about wanting great homemade type ice cream. Round Top Ice Cream at Damariscotta is fabulous!!! It's only a little over 2 miles away and There's a big park and picnic area around there at Round Top–so if we get ourselves kicked out of BC Barn we can mosey on over to Round Top. They have Covered picnic tables and electricity for music and lights… (I'm a contingency planner…since Camac said DIY has Posted the BC property:( ) BTW Round Top is also home of a fabulous annual antiques sale, which I try to not miss! :) :D ;)<3 Kitty

      DwnSoDwnEaster on June 22, 2012 at 5:53 pm
    • Hi Kitty, I agree that Round Top has great ice cream, but it's about 10 miles (going the back way on Turner Road and Biscay Road) or about 12 miles by Route 1. Speaking of ice cream, when you're up here you should check out "Cottage in the Woods" on a Saturday night for a free Gospel Concert and an ice cream sundae for a $1 donation. It's a privately owned screened in pavilion near Pemaquid Lake off the Egypt Road in Damariscotta.

      Camac on June 22, 2012 at 10:40 pm
    • Yikes, Carole! I didn't realize the distance! Thanks for clarifying that. I'm interested to hear more about the Cottage in the Woods Gospel Concert. That sounds special and the sundae's not so bad either ;) I hope Gary and I can make every second count while we're up there, including meeting you. May you have a blessed weekend and week ahead! Thanks for the info and all your help on BC!!!:D:p^_^<3 Kitty

      DwnSoDwnEaster on June 23, 2012 at 2:14 pm
    • Glad to hear you back to your ole self:) Wow! that ice cream social with Gospel music and ice cream-that is my kind of combination. It would be so great to win this home and get involved in this community-it has all the charm and history that you think of with Maine.
      I hope you have a wonderful vaction when you go to Maine. Can't wait to hear who and what you see:) We need anothe sleuth up there!;):po.0<3

      ruffybc on June 23, 2012 at 9:06 am
    • Ruffy, I was excited to hear about the Gospel Concert too! That is a lovely area of Maine and there are great opportunities of all kinds. I mentioned elsewhere that I was pleased that there was the Medomak Valley Land Trust area adjacent the BC Barn which will provide for nice walking access when I get there, thanks to DIY's generosity. The City of Waldoboro also maintains the public Dutch Neck Road area, so Hubby and I shall surely drive by and safely see what we can see! Stay tuned, as Victoria always says, more to be revealed…;):pB)^_^<3 Kitty

    • Greetings Fellow Soft Shoein' Flat Footin' Cloggin' Bloggers!
      Do a lil Dosey Doe for me! Who is bringin' the spoons??!!
      I bet the boys would be up for a little competition!! How about a good 'ol fashioned Horse Shoe Toss, Bobbin for Apples, Corn Holin', Frog Racin', Grain Sack Racin', or it may come down to just the boys doin' a distance challenge with the 'ol spittoon! Well.. maybe NOT just the boys! Girls can be pretty competative – at least in our family!! :) Guess y'all can tell I have been to a couple of these when I was a youngin' Yep, I even know about the boys behind the barn pullin the cork at leasure and sneekin' a sip of whiskey! OH!! And I won't even mention the goins on up in the 'ol hay loft! Hee Hee! Thanks for the memories! A rip stompin' time for shor! :) Lilly

      lilly on June 21, 2012 at 12:36 pm
    • "Well, that tears it !" You have to head up the activities and games, lilly ! Who is going to be the frog wrangler, lol? Since the Waldoboro weather is so hot, let's make the spittoon contest into a watermelon seed spitting contest…I will provide a truckload of melons.
      My husband will be behind the barn spiking several melons with vodka for the adults who care to indulge. I am a little nervous about that corn-holin, though…

      LLColeman on June 21, 2012 at 10:52 pm
    • The spiked watermelon sounds great! After a few of those I am sure someone is going to break into the Watermelon Crawl !! It is sure to make Tracy Byrd proud! Yep it IS a country song! Who else would come up with THAT title Hee hee! I attempted the Cotton Eye Joe YEARS ago but have not had the opportunity to do the Watermelon Crawl yet… Hey! There is always a first! :)

      Lilly on June 21, 2012 at 11:14 pm
    • I think you should add "slappin mosquitoes " to the activities. It was delightfully comfortable out this evening except for the little buzzin buggers.

      Camac on June 22, 2012 at 10:44 pm
    • See, Camac ? You may have said that you are not much of a party person, but you are pretty much participating in the Virtual shindig already ! We just joke about our mode of transportation, party decor, activities and delicious menus ! It is just fun hearing from people living in all regions in the country, the food , games and music everyone enjoys.
      Realistically, I am shy at parties and have dietary limitations that would never allow me to indulge in all the food mentioned here–so virtual is the way to go, LOL ! ;)
