HELLride, Huber’s, and Who Dey””kind of weekend”¦.

| November 16, 2010

Day after,  day”¦after night”¦.after day”¦.people completely surprise me.,  Take a breath!!,  Stop to look around”¦.breathe deep,  and take it -take THEM in., ,  Folks are wonderful., ,  With their intentions, wishes and gifts.,  We all – in are own way GIVE,  BACK.,  Some do charity work by,  volunteering or donating – some give back by helping co-workers or neighbors,  with everyday chores/life – some give back by being a positive example of,  life/career.,  Just when you,  think you have seen it all- WHAM-O!!, ,  Someone outta left field does something completely selfless for,  others”¦.they don’t even know.

It comes,  in shape of the FREAK’N FUNNEST FALL event EVER!!!,  When you don’t even know you’re,  giving”¦.when all you are doing is having a BOO-BLAST!

I’ve been,  going to a “˜HellRide’ my buddy puts on for years—YEARS, I say”¦.and,  honestly”¦.I knew he did it for M.S. but I truly never really put two &,  two together.

Every,  year my ghoul’n gang shows up for the HellRide (hayride””but SPOOKY)”¦we share,  in the festivities of yum-yum chili, stories around the bonfire, hayride,  with witch brew and fab fun”¦.we all donate our ten bucks but never really,  think where that moolaa might be heading.

I’ve,  helped Thad a few times “˜set-up’ this shin-dig and the labor that entails,  for such a flawless night is crazy., ,  The barn is used daily as a farm tool””so when turning it into the,  “˜host’ of the hellride party””it requires moving tons of tools and equipment,  – sitting up of tables & tables for folks to sit/mix/mingle to eat/drink,  – the paths for the hayride must be bushhogged, wagons (plural- cause this,  hoop-la is HUGE),  brought in,,  hay bales positioned on the wagons & around the bonfire, tractors and,  quads sitting on ready, port-a-pots stationed close by, manage,  friends/family that are bringing goods (such as chili, bowls, plates,,  spoons, napkins, table clothes, etc”¦)””and the obvious of setting the date,  and getting the work out.

Where the,  heck is this hayride story going”¦well, Thad – the country pumpkin – with,  help of family/friends do all this hard-dedicated work for their community,  to get together to enjoy the outdoors and donate to a great cause”¦..this,  stories purpose””KUDO’S to Thadus!!, ,  And CHALLENGE to YOU!, ,  -Think of a reason/event/opt to get folks together for a chance to,  GIVE BACK.

Terra Jackson
Welcome to the wild, wriskly world of TERRA.

The intent of this blog is to share my thoughts, opinions, wanderings about and evenings out. But I would also like to share some of your stories, questions, concerns and opinions – hence, my e-mail address is terrajackson@insightbb.com. Please e-mail me with what you would like to discus or share on my blog, and I’ll try to make that happen. You will shortly notice my “Terra Terms” – yes, I will make up words – but they are fairly easy to understand their meaning. NO, my grammar is not perfect and my spelling is even worse. If I can’t spell a word, I’ll just make up my own because that is the way I roll. So sit back, hold on tight and on with the show!
