BoN2007 second posting  
What: Back of Nowhere Boink 2007 (BoN2007)
Where: Back of Nowhere (where'd ya think?) ...er, Southern VT
When: Aug 3 (Fri) - Aug 6 (Mon).  Let me know if you want to
hang out for longer
Who: Snigglers.  Possibly other people. 

Mowed the lawn, and we're due to get five days of occasional
rain (and thunder), so, adding in perhaps a miracle or two,
there might be a nice lush lawn for the event. Wildflowers are
still blooming (some of them) though it's past spring wildflower
season.  My orange day lilies ("weed" day lilies) have been
going full-speed, and my two dark red ones just started
blooming the other day.  There might be one or two left by
BoN, but there weren't last year.

I've been swimming at the local lake every other day or so,
and will take any interested contingent over there on request
during BoN, weather permitting.  Beeeyoootiful lake, lovely
water. 

Notes from the back channel:

The ducks are quite chicken(?) and would perhaps have little
ducky heart attacks, were they herded by dogs.  Not sure.  I
opened up the door of the new larger coop today, and left it
open.  The ducks managed to come into the larger area to get
their food and water, but were not having any of this open
door thing.

The Friday benefit concert is indeed at 8:30, tixs 20 or 30
bucks (I'll be getting a $20 ticket).  Please let me know
soon if you want me to get you a ticket - there may also be
plenty at the door, though that's unpredictable.

Directions forthcoming, though most of you (all of you?)
don't need them.

Get me one of the $20 tickets. It's possible after the drive I'll just want to nap instead, but there's no harm in giving $20 to a good cause anyway.

Duck coop? Are you raising ducks?

Six mallards. For chickens, I've got six bantams, six Rhode Island Reds, and six Barred Rock. Way too many, as it turns out. What am I going to do with 20 or so eggs a day? I guess I'll be giving them away. None of them will start laying before around October, so I don't have to worry about it until then. I've decided that at least one of the bantams is a rooster, so that one will go in the stew pot someday. No one else looks different from its, er, egg-mates, yet; they might all be female.
