Good Time Stove Welcomes Spring - What a Party!

On Saturday night Stove Black Richardson hosted a great party to welcome spring and acknowledge St. Patrick's Day.

Guests were many and food plentiful!

Phyllis LaTaille provided an amazing musical accompaniment and did a great job of giving us real Irish feel we were hoping for.

The Gourd Birdhouse contest garnered more contestants than we could have imaged spanning a wide variety of genres and styles. Each more amazing and more impressive than the next.

Prizes were awarded as follows:
1. Most Bird Hospitable
2. Most Gourd-eous
3. Most Changed Since Gourd School
4. Gourds That Make You Come Hmmmm...
5. Best in Show

Below are just a few of Gourd Entries

We were sad to lose one friend early in the party - but you can see below Jessica had important puppy business to attend to - what a way to welcome in spring with a new litter!

A Sincere and Heart-felt Thanks to All Who Joined Us, in person, in spirit, or otherwise!
