February luncheon for central Arkansas folks

Isabella, MO(Zone 6b)

Happy New Year everyone! I hope you all had a good holiday celebration with your family and/or friends!
It's time for the central Arkansas folk to start thinking about our February luncheon. (Only true gardeners know what food and fellowship have to do with gardening! LOL)
I will be hosting the luncheon and Kathy Ann has agreed to be my co-host. I will be out of town on Feb. 6th but any of the other 3 Saturdays in February will be fine with me. Chime in here and let me know what would be the best date for you and we will make a plan!
Looking forward to seeing you all soon!!

Edited to add the names of those who are attending the luncheon. If I have left out your name be sure to let me know. Thanks!

Marilyn, hostess
Kathy Ann, co-hostess
Charlotte
Christine (maybe Dave, too)
Debra
Janie
Karen (maybe)
Kim
Loretta (hopefully)

I just sent you a dmail Marilyn. I'm ready for another luncheon, We have so much fun at these things.

Just want to tell Charlotte to bring her Stuff, LOL Amber stole one of my necklaces I got from you, and I want to try to replace it. Got to keep that girl out of my jewelry box. She took the black/turquoise one I found a black choker to go with it. and it's now gone ha.

I'm hoping that I will be able to attend this one. The Arkansas Flower and Garden Show
is Feb. 26th, 27th & 28th.

Stay warm everyone

I too am ready for another luncheon!!! I'll bring my "stuff". Need to make some new ones! My work table has been piled so high with stuff that I couldn't get to it. But I've been gradually clearing it. I usually volunteer at the Flower and Garden show but haven't signed up yet and don't think I'm going to. I've gotten myself involved in another project the "Spring Garden Tour" May 1 and 2 so I think I'm just going to stick with it.

North Little Rock, AR(Zone 7b)

I will have to do some investigating. Jeff and I are big on traveling during February, however, we have not talked about going anywhere this year. I will let you know.

Loretta, I am scheduled to work the MG answer booth on Friday Feb. 26, from 12-3. If you are there please stop by and say hi.

Isabella, MO(Zone 6b)

Why don't we rule out the 27th, then, since the Flower show is that week end. We can go for either the 13th or the 20th if that is ok with everyone.

I hope you will be able to join us this time around, Loretta. How is the knee doing?

Little Rock, AR(Zone 7b)

Either one is good for me.

Fayetteville, AR(Zone 7b)

Either one is good for me too!

Ripley, MS

You all know I just had to post on this thread to keep up with you Arkansas girls.

Any day is fine with me--just make lots of pictures for me to see

Judsonia, AR(Zone 7b)

Sandra, are you going to come to mine if I have one The first part of June? :0)

Ripley, MS

I don't know--we are going to Jeris in May ??? You know I will want too though !!

Judsonia, AR(Zone 7b)

I forgot about the trip to jeri's house. I'm not sure i'm having a luncheon yet anyways. I know I won't be going to Jeri's though. Unless work picks up really fast for Danny.

Ripley, MS

Do you think you will continue to work as much?

Judsonia, AR(Zone 7b)

No, from here on out work will start to slow down. That's not really all that good since Danny's not working, can't do much about that though.

I might have a couple more weeks of full time work, then I'll probably go back to two days a week in town. and work from home the rest of the time.

Isabella, MO(Zone 6b)

Well, why don't we plan on the 20th with the hope that the weather will be somewhat warmer by then. Of course, we had two snows in early March of last year so there are no guarantees! LOL
Sandra, you know you are always welcome at my house. Wish you could join us but I know that it is a bit far to drive for lunch! LOL However, you can always come and spend the night! :o))

Ripley, MS

Thanks Marilyn, I know I am welcome !! The same goes for you here

Isabella, MO(Zone 6b)

thanks, Sandra! :o))

Ferndale, AR(Zone 7b)

The 20th is good for me - so put me down. We will be out of the town the last weekend (will miss the garden show) so that works out great. What do we need to bring, Marilyn?

Isabella, MO(Zone 6b)

Oh, good, Debra--glad you can make it! You don't need to bring anything but yourself.

Fayetteville, AR(Zone 7b)

I have Feb 20th on my calendar! Wonder if I can talk Dave into coming... hhmmmmmmmm

Isabella, MO(Zone 6b)

That would be great, Christine. Hope Dave won't be intimidated by a group of chatty female gardeners! Maybe you can bribe him with the food. LOL

Fayetteville, AR(Zone 7b)

I'm thinking about just letting him know about it and seeing if he wants to come, I definitely want him to come to Jeri's RU, if I can afford to go, he should be getting his unemployment by then so we should be able to make it.

North Little Rock, AR(Zone 7b)

I think that I will be here in February, so count me in!

Fayetteville, AR(Zone 7b)

Yay!

Dave just said he wants to change the name of the handyman business, starting with the word "Handyman." I can't come up with anything, I think he should use our last name, "Ramsey's Handyman Specialist" but he wants to be first on yellowpages.com lol

North Little Rock, AR(Zone 7b)

How about "A Great Handyman To Have Around" LOL I know I like having a great handyman around ;o))

Ripley, MS

Did I miss something? Is Dave going into business for himself?
Tell him it is not always best to be "first"-lol--it is important to be best !!
Best Handyman Services

Isabella, MO(Zone 6b)

how about "AAA Best Handyman Services"--- that way he will be not only first but also best---LOL

Kim, glad you will be able to be with us in February!

Fayetteville, AR(Zone 7b)

Sandra he started his handyman/lawn care business in 2005 when he couldn't find work. It did great in California but didn't take off here so he found the job at Hawker Beechcraft that he just lost. He wants to 'refine' it and take "Lawn Care" out because he says he's getting too old for it, and just focus on the Handyman side. The business is called "A Better Home" right now.

Yaaayyy Kim! We're going to be building a veggie garden and Dave is unsure of how to go about it and dirt and all. I'm thinking about bringing him so he can get some education.

Ripley, MS

That is the perfect name, I hope he does well.

Jacksonville, AR

Marsue, I would love to come on the 20th, and see all you guys again.
Thanks,
Janie

Little Rock, AR(Zone 7b)

Janie glad you are going to be able to come in Feb. We missed you in Dec.

(karen) Little Rock, AR(Zone 7b)

Not sure if I'll make Feburary but I'll try.

Crissy you know they say your business name shoud tell what you do. My DH is self employed in the computer business his name used to be Computer Alternatives - nice name but no one was really sure what that meant. We changed it to Computer Repair Xpress 3-4 years ago and it made a HUGE difference in the number of new customers we have. I'm sure it is because anyone who sees our name knows exactly what he does.

What exactly does Danny want to do. General home repairs? or does he do moving stuff or painting or what? If you'll tell me I'll try to help you come up with a good name:)

Judsonia, AR(Zone 7b)

Danny's my hubby, Dave is Crissy's hubby.

(karen) Little Rock, AR(Zone 7b)

I see that! Sorry guys you didn't mind switching did ya? What does DAVE do crissy? Who cares what Danny does I guess since he ain't the one looking for a new name huh? Hey Kathy Ann hope the new year is treating you right!!

Judsonia, AR(Zone 7b)

I care what danny does, LOL specially since he isn't doing nothing now.

new year is ok so far.

Isabella, MO(Zone 6b)

Oh good, Janie, I am so glad you will be able to make it to the luncheon, It will be good to see you again.

Karen, hope things work out with the granddaughters' birthday so that you can come to the luncheon, but we know that grandkids come first!

Yep, Dave is Christine's husband and Danny belongs to Kathy Ann. Unfortunately,
Dave has been laid off and Danny's work got really, really slow after the housing market crashed. They are both in need of employment so let's keep that in mind when we are praying. :o))

Little Rock, AR(Zone 7b)

Debra and Kim let's all three ride together to Marilyn's. Debra if you could come to my house and then I will be glad to drive and we can go by and pick up Kim. Can talk about times, etc. later. What do you all think?

North Little Rock, AR(Zone 7b)

Sounds great to me!

Ferndale, AR(Zone 7b)

Sounds like a good idea!

Little Rock, AR(Zone 7b)

Good! We can work out the times as time gets closer.
