Slopers and Sloperettes, Mrs. Ig and I would like to cordially invite any and all interested friends to come to Carolina Beach, North Carolina, on Friday, October 10, and/or Saturday, October 11. We have a special guest visiting that week all the way from Denver, Colorado… none other than Slope’s very own ‘The Dude’.
Many of you old-timers know Dude, as he’s a veteran of our little community, and we figured we’d open up our recently acquired vacation home to any Slopers who wish to take a mini-vacation and meet other members of our virtual family while he’s visiting the east coast. And it’s just a good excuse to have a friendly gathering.
Moments ago, I got an email from Iggy saying Robin Williams was found dead; this is truly shocking and sad. I’d like to share with you one of the best comedy shows of all time, one I enjoyed quite a bit in the early 1980s. It’s all I can think of doing right now………..he was a mad genius:
In mid-July when TK announced his upcoming vacation plans, I emailed him offering to help keep things flowing on Slope while he was hitting the highways and byways of Europe so that he could focus on VACATIONING. I expected, as he’s done in the past, to graciously thank me, yet, decline and continue to take care of his baby himself even while traveling around the world with his family. However, this time, a couple of days prior to his departure date he surprised me by taking me up on the offer and I was happy to assist.
I knew that with all of the top notch contributors, my job was easy… put up a new post every couple of hours, let Slope be Slope, and that’s exactly how smooth things have gone. I can’t thank the guest writers enough for stepping up, taking the time to put together their content but also their willingness to share it for us all to see, it isn’t easy to put yourself out there with your prognostications.
