« Part 16: Tomorrow's Get-Together Part 17 of LJ Site series Part 18: $500 Prize!!!! »

Yesterday, Sept. 9/12, I hosted a get-together for all of our sites. Although I was expecting about 30 people we only had six people show up.

Thanks to LumberJock Andy for making the trek and bringing some wonderful pieces of wood to share!

It was a lovely afternoon, with conversations ranging from woodworking, to trees, to hunting, to gardening. Oh—- and it didn’t rain!!

Photos of the day are here (at GardenTenders).

Looks like a great group of people. Too bad you didn’t put names with the pictures.

Since today’s date is 9/10, perhaps the rest of the invited guests will be arriving day after tomorrow…

Looks like a fun get-together.

I’ve updated the blog and added names.

It was a lovely day.
Perhaps I’ll hold another one that everyone can attend :)

forgot to tell you I buoght a plant in a pot today I never have seen before
its two/three coloured leafes where the green part is on the topp and purple
on the undersides but do to how they grow it looks like it on the outside of the leafes
I just had to have it for the window :-) the name is Rhoeo Spathacea
then I discoverd this site when I googled the name to see how I should take care of it

I think there is a chance it can survive outside in the winthers too here on the island
well at least I will try :-) so tomorrow I buy two more for the garden

if you gogle it then take a look at the pictures that show up
I´m sure you can have it in the green house at sommertime and in the house in the winther months

I think it would be really cool to have a few centralized get togethers and shows. I think it would be great to meet some of the other LJ’s in person and see their work.

there have been get-togethers hosted at people’s homes, at parks, and at woodworking businesses – in classrooms and in parking lots.
It just takes someone to “host it and post it”
