WOW you guys have busy schedule for events GOOD for the community.  I am assured you will get flagged for the post LOL... HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND.

Posted by Lynn911.com ~ Dallas Real Estate Agent Top Team (Dallas Houses for Rent Dallas Apartment Rentals Lynn911.com ) about 10 years ago

Lynn,  Yes, it would be hard to say "There's nothing to do here"  We always have something going on.   Oh, and I know what you mean about flags.   Even though mine is completely compiled by me... someone could decide otherwise and I wouldn't be able to do a thing about it.

Also, I enjoyed reviewing and commenting on some of your intriguing Blog Posts.  Keep it up!

Posted by Pam Jank, Your Coeur d'Alene & North Idaho Real Estate Pro (Coldwell Banker Schneidmiller Realty) about 10 years ago

My goodness! That's a lot to do! And LOL at the topless beer bar. Bike Week in Daytona would REALLY mean topless. I have pics to prove it. hahaaa

Posted by Lisa Hill, Daytona Beach Real Estate (Florida Property Experts) about 10 years ago

Lisa,  Yea our "Topless" is quite a bit tamer than Datona or Indy! 

Also, I enjoyed reviewing and commenting on your Blog Post The Greatest Real Estate Seller I've Ever Met  and yes I've had similar situations here.

Posted by Pam Jank, Your Coeur d'Alene & North Idaho Real Estate Pro (Coldwell Banker Schneidmiller Realty) about 10 years ago

Pam, It looks like a really happening community.  Somthing for everyone!   Toppless Beer Garden sounds interesting...

Posted by Tim Jank (Jank & Associates) about 10 years ago

Pam, you were right - there's so much to do in Idaho!  Mudgy and Millie celebration sounds like a lot of fun for the whole family.  I also liked the Five Minutes of Fame - who wouldn't want that but it's a good thing I'm not going - I don't sing or dance well and I can't play an instrument and everyone I know is happy that I don't try! Hope all is well with you and thanks for stopping by to see what's going on in Bucks County! ~Anne Marie
