Its time to have the first Bon Fire on the Lake for 2013. This is a few days past the full moon so it should still be bright on the lake at night. I can fire up the grills as needed. Hopefully the weather will cooperate, and if it doesn’t we can stay inside and watch a movie.

    Just wanted to thank everyone who attended or tried to attend my bonfire. I know the car wreck made getting to my place difficult at time. For all of you who were or are becoming sick, the flu is bad this year, I hope you have a quick recovery. Take Care Jonathan

    I wish I had a great reason to miss it, but I just plainly got drunk out on Cedar Key Saturday & didn't leave for home 'til 2 am. Had some great food out there, but no bon fires. I hope to make it next time.

    Sorry I didn't make it! There was a big accident just a couple streets down from yours. The police weren't letting people through. I waited and gave up about 7:15pm. I don't know Melrose well enough in the dark to find myself a detour.

    What happened at Gene's

  • Richard D.

    It just happens that I will have a pretty massive sound system with me from the clogging festival so we can wake up all of your neighbors.

    January 18, 2013

    • Jonathan G.

      Well, I don't really want to repeat what happened at Gene's but music is nice to have.

    Hello Everyone,
    I received a number of requests to start this event a little earlier, before sunset, so people can find my house and see the lake before it is dark so I’ve moved the start time up to 6:00 PM. For those of you how haven’t been before; if you like bring something to share and you will need to bring what you drink. There is normally way more food than is needed so not a big deal if you don’t bring anything. I do have the gas grill and will fire them up as needed. You should bring what to drink, but if all you want is a beer someone will be more than happy to share. I do have a number of folding chairs but it never hurts to have more, so if you have one bring it. The weather should be nice, in the 50’s and a light breeze, so a jacket or sweater would probably be good to bring. Looking forward to see everyone.
    Jonathan

    Hey Jonathan, I'm bringing s'more stuff and lots 'o wine :-). Do you want me to bring anything else? Do you have a plan for music? Do you have anough chairs?

    January 18, 2013

    • Jonathan G.

      Hi Kris, I do have a small boom box and there is the stereo in the house. As for chairs I do have quite a few but it never hurts to have more, so if you've got one or a few folding chairs bring them.
