Farewell Brooks

Brooks has been called back to Iraq for a third tour. We are all hoping the third time is a charm. Now that it seems his life is together and he has a great girlfriend (Liz) it's getting torn apart again.
So we are throwing him a huge bash! It's a M*A*S*H Party! I am turning the inside of the house into a mash set. I am framing out the inside of the living-room and turning it into Col. Potters Office. The frame out of the dining room will become The Swamp. The backyard will become an outdoor Mess Hall and Rosie’s Bar. There is so much work to do on this one! Brooks thinks he is coming over for a little Bar-B-Que, but there will be 40 - 50 people there all dressed in MASH clothing. There will be the sign post with mileage to San Fran, Chicago, Little Rock, Baghdad, Tijuana... I hope to get a loudspeaker system going to make announcements. We will have a "M*A*S*H 4077 BEST CARE ANYWHERE" sign. John is working on a video of Brooks. Liz is getting party supplies and I am doing set and food. Phew!!! Dani our next door neighbor of Pacific Event Productions will be providing all the props. It will be great, but a lot of work! The party is set for March 21, 2008 at 6pm! Wish me luck!
