|07:51 pm - Butterflies|
I wasn't sure I was going to do a butterfly release in Bill's memory this year. I have not been at faire very much and some of the drama while I was there left a bad taste in my mouth, but Bill was very important to me and each release since his death has been a very special experience. After discussing it with several of Bill's friends and checking with the company I purchase from to ensure they can have them here by the weekend, I've decided to do it. I'm not going to go through the pains of trying to coordinate everyone schedules to do the release as we have in previous years. For the most part I know I'll have to deliver the precious packages and let people find their own moment to do their release. I'll let people know where and when the small group who have easily coordinated schedules will release our butterflies and anyone is free to join us to watch. Before I place the order I need to know who else is interested in purchasing one to release.The cost is approximately $14 per monarch butterfly. I have to place the order by Tuesday evening, so speak up if you'd like to participate. I have a paypal account or you can pay me at the festival this weekend.
EDIT - I'm unlocking this post because there are several people that I think would like to participate that are unable to read my locked post. Please keep one thing in mind, the release is for people that knew Bill and I would like to keep it that way. I've already declined several people that I know never attended MDRF while Bill was there. I'm sorry if that seem bitchy to anyone.
Got it. If you wish to paypal, the account is deb224 at hotmail dot com.
Am, please count me in. I can get to the group release, and would you prefer cash in person or PayPal ?
::hugs:: Thank you !
Paypal would be preferred so that I don't have to try to keep track of cash at faire. My paypal address is deb224 at hotmail dot com. Thanks.
I would like in on this for the first time. I think after 5 years I can hold my tears to a minimum. Though I am tearing up right now just thinking about it. Some days I can't believe that he's not here with us physically any more....
I've ordered one for you, Sweets. If you'd like to paypal, the account is deb224 at hotmail dot com. See you Saturday. And tears are perfectly acceptable ... God knows I shed enough of them each year.
I'd love to be a part of this.
I have you down. If you'd like to paypal, the account is deb224 at hotmail dot com. See you Saturday.

I know it's too late to catch her... but I know that "Anjabeth" was *very* happy that she was involved in the first release. Is there any way you could let me know the time so that if "Lady Kytson" is free she could at least be there? (or just let her know directly?)
I miss Bill's presence at faire still, but I never knew him well enough to join in comfortably. I do like the thought of him and the butterflies though... and they pop up at the most *amazingly* appropriate times.
