Cyclone Carol descended on Staveland this past Monday and Tuesday… that’s her below at Blackberry Farm (last year) where another Stave Puzzle Party will be held in 2 weeks. Carol (our former Marketing Director now living on a Maine island) and Jennifer, with husbands in tow, will be hosting this wild and crazy event February 22 and 23. Since Martha and I will be in Boise visiting our grandson Simon that weekend Jennifer came up with the idea of putting me on a DVD with a "Welcome" message and hints for the Treasure Hunters. (Carol has dreamed up this creative and challenging Treasure Hunt which involves some players rocketing around BBF on golf carts collecting clues.) So on Tuesday Paula was chief videowoman, Carol was the director and script writer (no unions here), and I was the pigeon in front of the camera following directions (at least trying to). We did 4 different scenes, each in one take. Then we loaded the video onto a Mac, fiddled/fumbled around with iMovie and iDVD and, by golly, we actually figured out to burn a workable DVD. Hey, it’s actually pretty good…. watch out youTube… Paula has the video bug now. The party will take place in the Guest House living room, shown below. Only two(2) rooms are left for the party!
Blackberry Farm is a fabulous resort just north of Knoxville, Tenn. Wonderful facilities and wonderful food. We’ve gotten lots of interesting new customers from there. Check it out!
