Once a Month Celebration

Darn it, tired of drama. So hereby I give myself permission to have a once a month celebration. Yes, a celebration every single month. Not just an ordinary celebration, no, a celebration of a friend on the cancer network.
So, for me, the first weekend of every month I will plan on a celebration, a celebration of the lives of one of my cancer network friends.
February, this Saturday will be my first celebration. I am choosing people out of a hat, yes, democratically.
This isn't a popular vote celebration, it's everyone that I see posting on the colon board, I've tossed you in a hat, and tonight, I'm pulling out the first name.
So even on short notice, (okay) so this weekend I'm having the party since it is short notice, on Sunday (um being the super bowl party weekend, but hey, what better day to celebrate?) instead of Saturday (I have invited guests already) and the VERY FIRST EVER (well for me at least) ONCE A MONTH CELEBRITY is:::: (drum roll)


Hmmm, will be very busy at the dollar store buying starfish, sea shells etc., (thank goodness shrimp on the bar-b was a given)

Pete you are my first celebration of the year of the lives of us, I'm am honored to honor you. So, my party this Sunday is in celebration of you, your life!!!

I love you Winter Marie.....you are the best of the best!
I missed the drama on the board, ( being the drama queen that I am I was wallowing in my own all week) (wink)....I'm thinking it's for the best that I was MIA.
But...can't wait for Sunday, Yay Pete!
Having a Bday arty for my Mother the same day...can I bring guests? We might just all crash Petes party...teehee
I'll bring the ice...we have 7 inches of it outside right now...as long as you don't mind that its crushed ice. (o:

I swear it's 50 outside, and here I am in my house with my down jacket on, it goes to my ankles, has a hood with faux fur, and I'm still cold (heat is turned up to a whopping 72 degrees in hopes of heating the house up). The trials and tribulations of being a Californian.

Oooooh.... it's a Petey Party!! Hahahha... (get it?? A Pity Party - A Petey Party??) Ok, ok, I get really really pun-happy when I'm tired and it's late at night or early in the morning depending on which way the clock twirls :D

Soooo, we get to celebrate Pete!! He's going to have to sit in a big old chair and we are going to have to make a paper crown which he will have to wear all day! And then I think it's only fair that between now and then he take pictures of his home, the outside, his favourite places, etc.... and then we can put them up here in the topic, so we all can see Petey's house!! And the kids! And the wifey too! Pictures, we want pictures!! :D

This is going to be fun. And I can use the party as an excuse for heading to the chemo unit Monday morning a little bleary-eyes and slightly tipsy :D

What a wonderful addition to the celebration!!!
Hello Pete!!!
Um, will some one break it to him, he's the celebrant of the month and needs to provide pictures for the celebration????
We have Mai Tai's on board, starfish, sea shells, video, now we need fam pics to add to the celebration!!!
Everyone in the future celebrant of the month will get a three week notice, but well, Pete's an Aussie, he can handle this short notice stuff!!!

Enjoy your celebration! We will be celebrating a bit her in Michigan, George is feeling pretty well now that he has this new chemo under control so he is having a few guys over for a poker game on Saturday so I am taking off with my sister and maybe a few others and going out to dinner and a stop at one of the casinos. We have not been getting out much, it is just so cold this year and with the flu season just easier and wiser for George not to be in large crowds.

Have fun - Tina

What an honour. Its a lovelly idea Winter.

Its been a great day and how lucky I am to be the VERY FIRST EVER, ONCE A MONTH CELEBRITY.

Now days I gratefully accept all the good vibes and luck that comes my way.

I love the frame, I am soaking it in literally here in our 40 degree heatwave in Sydney.

Have a look at my photo site www.petertrayhurn.com .

the gallery cancer treatment shows odd shots of the op and things.

My underwater favourite is christms island where I won a few prizes for underwater photography. It was also my last dive holiday as when I came back I got DX'd.


I hope your BBQ will be great. You can show my little NBC movie if you have time.

In the crazy battle we all face, in my eyes we are all celebrities of the month. Anyone who posts or reads once or thousands of times.

hopefully we all benefit from this community's knowledge , love and compassion and faith ( whatever this really means ).

This place gives hope, love and support. We actaully save lives with our shared stories and experiences and laughter.

Thanks winter,

Love and rainbows,

Now we have something ELSE to look forward to each month! YAY!

As far as the drama, stay long enough you will find that it pops up from time to time, some don't have anything better to do with their time. It will blow over soon enough, if it stops getting fed.
