Now it's only two DAYS away. Here are the plans, pretty well finalized.

Anyone may attend, as long as they will work if needed. Jonathan and I certainly welcome anyone. Kids who can be left unattended may watch movies in the TV room if they wish--we have lots of Disney plus other animation, Star Wars, etc. Other kids are welcome on a wrangle-your-own basis. (This house is not in any way child-proofed.)

This house is smoke-free but not cat-free, and not guaranteed mouse-free (sigh--though we haven't seen any signs lately and no one has caught one recently). How neat and/or clean the house will be is still in flux, but fans are tolerant.

Since the work party officially starts at 6, there will be dinner. There will be chili with ground beef (and beans!) and vegan chili. Accompaniments are the usual: tortillas, saltines, cheese, sour cream, jalapeno slices and dices.

We will have pop--because of sales, mainly Coke products. We will have some beer--so far I have Killian's Irish Red and a Schell's sampler. We have a Keurig-type Mr. Coffee and people can make coffee (much variety) or tea (limited variety) by the cup. We also have Chippewa spring water in a cooler. Our liquor supply will be open, and I have added a bit to it (including an Irish that was on sale and I've never tried). Your contribution of any of these types of drinkable is welcome! Those of you who know me know I have a fondness for interesting alcohol or things I haven't tried...and things I can't afford...

There will be the usual munchies: ripply potato chips and dips and tortilla chips and salsas, crackers (Ritz and some multigrain) and cheese (including goat), some cakes and cookies. Little sausages in BBQ sauce. Maybe meatballs in teriyaki sauce, not sure. Again, contributions of munchies are welcome! I am not buying any pricey cheese, just the very basic.

Our son Patrick has to go to work the next day, so we will ask for no music or raucousness after 10 p.m., but people sure don't have to leave that early.

We are at 3328 Colfax Ave S, Mpls.
