Bland Lizzard Caught Smiling at 2006 COW

October 28th, 2006

cow2006_2.jpgOnly a few COW participants remained for the annual COW photo where the Bland Lizzard was caught in a rare smile. Was it because the weekend was about to end? Was it because only his favorite people were left behind? Was it because it was raining? Was it an uncontrolled facial expression? Oh who cares, he was caught in a smile and that’s what counts.

Its Audrey’s Birthday

October 24th, 2006

The perpetually 30 ish Ms. Williams – an Olympic caliber volleyball player, Nobel Prize winning scientist, technological wizard comtemporary of Jobs and Wosniak, an aunt of incomparable talents, and arguably the sanest among all of her siblings – was recently proclaimed the COWOFISMBEAK member least likely to perturb. Congratulations!. What is it that propelled Ms. Williams to this highest honor of her long and distinguished life? Historians will debate the answer for centuries. Was it the wonderful upbringing provided by her parents,  or her early and heavy involvement with the intentional Christian community at Lutheridge, or the wisdom acquired from her career as a cheerleading coach, or the doses of radiation she received from living and working too close to the nuclear facilities at Oak Ridge, TN? Whatever the cause of her exceptionality, we are all blessed and thankful that she lives among us. Happy Birthday, dear friend.

Dr. Princess turns 40

October 11th, 2006

Dr. Princess turns 40Well, it had to happen. Dr. Eblen Princess, the picky b#@%* has turned 40. Several of us gathered in the lovely spot called Greenville, NC (home of East Carolina University, not to be confused with Eastern Carolina – which is apparently somewhere else) to celebrate the blessed event. Photos can be found in the COW photo pages.

COW 2006 – Back at Briar Bottom

September 25th, 2006

Well, the somewhat soggy event is now over (sniff) but the 2006 COWOFISMBEAK is “in the can”, as they say. It was nice to be back at the group site in Briar Bottom rather than the Davidson River campground. (in this blogger’s opinion)
The COW overlooks the fireWe were about 12 strong at the high point and even had a surprise visit from Mike Kestner! Jenny made it on Sunday to share photos of her brand new nephew, Carter.

The rain did pause long enough for our pegi match and for supper and campfire on Saturday night. But, the deluge through Saturday night was quite something!.

Hope everybody can make it next year. Keep this blog and the photo pages growing!!!

2006 COW letter received

September 2nd, 2006

The Letter!Imagine the tingly feeling of excitement I had when I opened my mailbox yesterday and saw that familiar handwriting and return address sticker. Oh be still my heart! The new COWOFISMEAK Official invitation letter is here!!

With the theme this year How Are People Perturbing You?, I think we will really be in for a great time.

September 22-25 at Briar Bottom – Ash Site cannot get here fast enough.
