This poem in its entirety was written as each hostess followed by Triss has made their way to Cedar here For the Party that is Now taking place..


Up At Cedar Hill

Jiffy , Loz and Cindy is going to Cedar Hill
Riding Planes and Trains to meet our Favorite Bill!
Soon we'll have 10 years of The Garden Helper here
In invite to all was given to celebrate and cheer
All thru Cyberspace
Excitement's in the air
making sure all is safe for their arrival there.
There will be laughter and Hugs
Gifts and tears~~ sooo happy they will be
To meet the ones they hold soo dear and finally get to see!!
They want to say "What happens at Cedar Hill stays at Cedar Hill
But Triss our Photographer snaps picture and That I know she will!
To show us all that happens ~~~~ up there on Cedar Hill!!
There is a bridge called cockeye built with logs and beams
A gathering spot for shooters
and maybe some Jim Beam
Who will be left standing ? and who will be down stream !!!!

You may try to intimidate and even begin snarling
We know deep in your heart every part of you is smiling!!!
you may try to stray from camera's all thru out the days
But we can see you all in so many other ways!
When updates are given thru the post you have made
We'll feel your joy and happiness in all the words you say.
We'll celebrate The Garden Helper in our own special way
brought together by plants and flowers , to celebrate That Day!!!

Loz Just left on that roll'in Choo- Choo train
She's gotta get a smoke break before she goes insane
She's riding coach , and sitting up, for this part of the trip
She's worried about Mark snoring, when into sleep they slip!!
she's requested we tell Cindy, "Don't Forget to Charge your phone",
and take it everywhere you go, and set it up to roam.

Our wish for you is God Speed and a fun exciting trip,
As the conductor blew the Whistles and Yells "Let 'er Rip"
The Angels ride along with you and whisper with their wings
Instead of hearing snoring, they'd rather hear you sing!!!

Mark and Loz has arrived and gotten off that train
When Bill arrived and picked them up I'm glad it didn't rain
They got a tour of Cedar Hill , Then sat down at Bill's desk
for Faye to see Her babe at last ~ I bet they need some rest.
Jiffy and Scott ~ the next to leave in Sundays early light
An early rise to pack it up ~ then to catch their flight!

Jiffy and Scott is flying now on a steel winged bird,
Off to Cedar Hill and we're waiting on the word,
That they have landed safe and sound, and rent a car and heading up
Maybe stopping in for lunch and coffee in a cup.
At noon today they will be in Washington state
To be together and celebrate ~ It's been a long wait!
Mama Mouse will be there with eyes and ears in tune
to see which couple will behave and which ones will be swooned.
Cindy is the next to leave , as guest she'll be the third,
A nervous one she will be ~~ on that steel winged bird.

It's Cindy's time to fly~ this morning she will leave
Her stomach is in knots, I hope she doesn't heave.
She's made alot of lists and checked each one twice
We've tried to keep her safe, with much needed advice.
no cuts, or falls, or broken bones ~ she flys there injury free.
It won't be long now~ when she lands, Bill's face is first she sees.
She said she's gonna grab his A** ~ no need to hear a "please??"
HE needs to turn around so Cindy gets a squeeze!
back at CedarHill Guest(s) 1 and 2 are there
Waiting for Ms. Cindy, with hugs and fun to share
The next in line to leave, is Triss and family
Set to go to CedarHill , packing an RV!!

Triss's Family is leaving soon~ Driving an RV
A comfort ride for all inside and riding happily.
The kids are so excited to see their favorite place.,
they laugh and scream and play so hard in such a big wide space.
Triss brings the Mystery Box so careful in her hands,
The Lead gnome brought to Napavine, just as we had planned,
There's snacks and goodies for all inside , and that you'll surely see
Even something kept in mind for Catlover and Weezie
I Thank you Triss for all you've done to help me out a bit
was sweet of you ~with all you do~ this task you did committ!
Soooo Everyone enjoy yourself ~ make Memories sure and strong~
Place them deep within your hearts where they beautifully belong!!

Do you think he will really let us see them? Do you think he will be setting them off out in the bus stop?

Happy 10th anniversary!!!

Been forever since I have logged in here ( so long I forgot my password lol). Life has just been way busy on my end of the planet.

I can feel the excitement in the air, over the get together at CH!

Hi Shirley4! I am a Shirley too! I looked to see if I could change my user name, but I do not see a place to do that. When things settle down a bit for Bill, I will ask him if he can change it, without me having to re-register.

Diane you have the best Willy's! They are cute.

Happy 4th to you all!

Shirl
