On Fri evening, March 15 ,2013, We cordially invite you to a dinner where you get to mingle with 22 of the most influential members of rural Ontario. At $ 5.00 a plate, we consider ourselves lucky to scare up 22 who could afford the price, even with the incentive of a tax receipt. We feel honoured that we will be able to offer a wide variety of meal choices, much more than the Rosewater.
Timing of this gourmet extravagance may prove difficult as we’re relying on wind power and service could commence at 3 am. Our offerings however will not include heifers but will include a breast of “spent chicken” in a cream sauce. Appetizers include Blandings turtle soup and plenty of Bald eagle wings with hot sauce and Bobolink liver pate’ .
Wayne has also assured me that he’ll have plenty of time to prepare whatever road kill comes his way in a very tasteful manner. Dessert will be homemade pie, made with a rare variety of cherries, salvaged just prior to the trees being bulldozed to make way for turbine access roads.
Wine served will be a special vintage of dandelion wine, harvested from my lawn in 2008. A very good year. Service will be performed by 3 and 4 year-olds since they need to learn at a young age to serve their political masters. It may prove difficult however to find a table to hold 22 so we may have to use those big wooden wire spools left over from transmission line installations strewn throughout the area. Bring your own tablecloths since they’re optional.
We trust the money raised will be put to good use. We will look forward to the announcement that the Ottawa Water Snake ( Daltonus McGuintyius) will no longer be threatened and only classified as a species at risk.
Just come as you are and come hungry. Oh and we suggest you bring your food taster.
RSVP by March 11/13
Beware the ides of March……..
