Splash here with a ridiculously fun Story about the upcoming 2018 Blue Ridge Rally. This year's BRR has been designated the Year of the Peep. How that all came about is a Story all by itself.
Mom's plan was to take it easy for the 11th BRR after our big blow-out 10th anniversary party last year in Tennessee. Now I know what you are thinking . . . that is an impossible task for her because she LOVES planning rallies for her friends, especially the Blue Ridge. Mom has always called her camping buddies "Peeps" and in a conversation with fellow Blue Ridger, Miss Carol from Maine, Miss Carol suggested that everyone could be "free range Peeps", do their own thing, and even help in the planning for 2018. Hmmmm . . . what a novel idea. And the Year of the Peep was hatched!
Blue Ridgers have indeed stepped up and volunteered for morning coffees and afternoon happy hours. They have suggested party and meal themes. They have offered to lead a bike ride and a book club. They have said they will bring supplies and decorations. It's working Miss Carol, it's working!!
Of course Momma Sharon and I are tickled to death with the participation and enthusiasm by our Peeps so far. There have been lively conversations on our Facebook page and the sharing of Peep-stuff galore . . . cartoons, ideas for crafts, peep items spotted in stores, and much much more. I even have some stuff to share with you for peep's sake!!
