The Annual Haggard Smoky Mtn. Picnic
We don’t have a rainy day plan, so pray for no lightnin’, no pourin’ down thunderation thunderstorms, and no strong and mighty wind forces. If’n you don’t pray, pack your rubber boots and rubber duckies, cuz you will be eatin’ you some wet chcken little.
The information listed below was provided to me by my next of kin, kindred spirits, and various and assorted other individuals, who shall remain nameless, but their initials are Aunt Wanda Byrd and Sonny Payne. Hereunto let it be known and acknowledged that the following persons will be bringing the thereafter following vittles:
Aint Wanda – cold slaw, tater salad, and a yummy, even delicious cake
Karen Broke & Jordie – don’t know yet, but I’m sure it will be delectible
Sonny Boy & Reva Jo – a bucket of dead chicken and slaw. All that and a bag of chips
Jeaneane (Nene Mae), and Becky Sue – a bucket of dead chicken, original recipe, with baked up beans
Donna Roberta and Tommy Wayne – a decadent, sinfully delicious dessert, and whutever else she wants to throw in
Dianer and John Boy Nevinz (or a friend, if JB can’t come) – more dead chicken, slaw, and whatever else they’re hungry for
Pammie Poo and Chuckie Do – a few newspapers to sling over the tables, sum tin foil to eat off of, a box of kleenex to wipe our hands and mouths on, moonshine, tin cups, some kind of bread, and burnt beans
If’n you don’t see nuthin here that you are a cravin’, pick up your most favorite food and bring it with ya.
Rules for August 1st, in the year of our Lord, 2009:
No rollin’ of the eyes
No talkin’ behind one t’others backs
No cussin’ or fussin’
No squirt guns or other such objects, cuz if we are askin’ the Lord for His blessins with good weather, we shouldn’t bring water toys.
Must wear a smile
Must bring an appetite
Bug spray is optional
