The closing date could not be moved for the buyers, so I will be closing on Monday, April 21st. I'm sending this message out in my LiveJournal, the NM Furry mailing list, and to a series of my Socorro friends who can hopefully pass it to all the people that I don't have email addresses for.
April 12th, April 13thFrom:
8 AM to about 4 PMWhere:
My houseWhat We'll Be Doing:
Loading my furniture into storage PODs. Move trash to the dump on April 12th as needed. Packing stuff into boxes. Some stuff will be available for free, if you want it, or I'll drop it off at the thrift stores later on.What to Bring:
You might want work gloves. Mark will be bringing furniture dollies
, but regular dollies and other things that are useful for moving things may be useful too.What Will Be Provided:
I'll have water, diet sodas, and either pizza or sandwiches for lunch.What You'll Get:
I'll be taking people who help me out to the Socorro Springs Brewery and treat you to dinner at 4:30 PM.
April 11th, April 12thFrom:
7 PM to midnight
I'll have water, diet sodas, and either pizza or sandwiches. Bring your own beer, but be prepared to either drink it or take it back home with you. Bring desserts, salads, or main courses, if you'd like!
The April 12th party is the "furry" party, but anyone may attend either. I recommend that people come in costumes, fur-suits, or action-figure outfits: I welcome all Jedi, Klingons, Logan's Run Runners, and Rocky Horror assholes! Especially for the 12th, we should have plenty of unconventional conventionalists!
My TV, DVD players and sound system will be packed by myself in the following week, but my movies and games will be boxed and unavailable. So, bring your favorite board games, card games, moves, and video games! (I have a Wii with two controllers, and a PlayStation 2.) For the 12th, folding tables
and folding chairs
will also be well appreciated.
If you can't make it, I do hope that I'll see you before I go. If that isn't possible, I will be making occasional trips back to New Mexico for work purposes every couple of months.
Thank you all, Techies, Furries, Gamers, Nerds, Drama-geeks alike. I've lived in New Mexico since I was 11 in 1986, and I've lived in Socorro almost continuously since 1995. I hope to get a chance to see you all one last time before I leave this state and travel north to be with Ken.Directions from Albuquerque:
