Yehuda Berlinger said...

No no, Rivka. They set the clocks back tonight, not the month.


RivkA with a capital A said...

Oops!! Thanks for the catch!

I always said I have no sense of time!!

Dude with hat (aka BTS) said...

Sorry won't make it to Israel anytime soon unless Moshiach comes! Enjoy the party & refua shloimo!!!

Batya said...

If I can I'll be there.

adina said...

Yippee - sounds great! Thank you for arranging this!!

rickismom said...

I registered to come, but in the end will not be able to. Thanks anyway.

Sarah said...

I'd love to come. Gotta take it day by day here, but I hope that day has all my stars aligned! It'd be great to see you, and meet other bloggers, and get my blog known a bit, as well. Here's hoping!

Ye'he Sh'mey Raba Mevorach said...

If it's not troublesome, do you think you could publish a list of which blogs will be there?

I'm really excited about it!

HolyCityPrayer said...

we'll be bringing the family, or some fraction of it. Hope others will too!

Robin said...

Sorry RivkA, we've got a conflict.

Next time for sure!

Cheryl@SomewhatCrunchy said...

That is so cool that you planned that! I hope you have a great turnout!

RivkA with a capital A said...

Dude with hat -- You don't have to wait for Moshiach anymore! You can just get on a plane!

Muse -- I really hope you can make it! If you can, don't forget to register (not obligatory, but fun!)

Adina -- Glad you are coming! Please register!! (again, not obligatory, just fun!)

Ricki's Mom-- no, no, no pleeeaase come!! I really want to meet you!!! ok, ok, no guilt! I understand things change, but I am soooo disappointed! ok, ok, no guilt!

Sarah -- it would be so awesome if you made it! Be forewarned -- there are no chairs, so if you a portable chair, you might want to bring it!

If you want to come early and crash for a few hours at my place, that would be fine too. And I really mean crash -- I plan to take a nap before going!

Ye'he Sh'mey & Holy City -- you guys gotta get your numbers straight! Not only did you put different numbers about who is in your party, but you gave different ages for your kids!!

Hey Robin -- bummer! next time!! I will miss you!! It would have been fun to hang out and meet the rest of your clan!

Cheryl -- Me too!! Wanna' fly to Israel and join us? ;-)

Staying Afloat said...

I'm sending my sanity. Clearly, I won't be needing it at home when I attempt to take all of my kids out without my working husband, and it will have much more fun with you guys! (I'll keep the insanity for
the kids- they'll enjoy it!)

Have fun!

Elyon DeKoven said...

Thanks for planning this! Would be great to be there. Unfortunately, it is the one day we have plans. Looking forward to the next one!

Ye'he Sh'mey Raba Mevorach said...

RivkA - you know that I have the ages correct, of course. And so far all the kids are very excited about coming. They remember going to Park Gilo (when was that? I wasn't there. Was that after CZ's accident?). I told CZ to bring his Diablo - which he is teaching himself. Do you think MD would be interested in a little mentoring?

Baila said...

Not sure yet if I can come; want to but have to see what's up. Not getting a very enthusiastic response from the peanut gallery, so I will probably come solo if I do come :-(

Batya said...

Sorry, it looks like I'll be on a "mission."

rutimizrachi said...

Belated but delighted acceptance! The kinderlach will all be elsewhere; but the Dearly Beloved is looking forward to meeting some of my cyber-buddies.

Jewlicious said...

I'm a be there like shareware. I mean, with a chair. Don't ask.

Klara said...


your picnic thing is pushing me back to figuring out this blogging thing - I started to register then tried looking up my blogging attempts - and lo and behold found it http://treesandforests.blogspot.com/

but now I can't find the page to register :>)

maybe meeting other bloggers will push me over the edge and get me to try to blog again - or I'll take the easy way out and just cc everything I write elsewhere to my blog (is that allowed??)

see you tomorrow, G-d willing

now if I can find that page to register.......

so good to post and not be anonymous
