Khan, turn this into a potluck and we'll all be there to help you entertain even if we have to climb into the house through a hole in the roof.

Heh, I will be having some work colleagues over in a couple of weeks, including two guys from out of town that I do not know well. I am hoping that I manage to pour enough homebrew into them to prevent them from noticing stuff like the fact that my basement lloks like something out of "Hoarders."

Maybe you could use this question as an ice-breaker...

After 3 or 4 pints of 9% alcohol honey beer, we will all be peeing in the sink.

We are in Marshall, Minnesota which is not that far away. (On our way to South Dakota tomorrow sometime... maybe.)

Plan A - use Woolite and vaccum the residue off with a shop vac - not a household vacuum cleaner in case the fabric is still wet. ZAP

Plan B - throw covers. A nice India print cotton will work wonders.

Plan C - Salvation Army expedition

The good news is that you won't need to feed them...

Why don't you try to "be yourself"?

Khan - I suspect pending houseguest is not coming to see if your house is clean....they are coming because they miss your sense of humor. Best read of the night.

Ok, Kahn. Cough it up.

Is this the correct weekend (as in Sept 4-6) for your visitor's arrival ?

Mmmmm, well I'll plead the fifth (no not the whiskey) on smokin', but I will admit there has been a time or two that I have been guilty of a little smolderin'.

...and yes Khan, I'm a voyeur. I look forward to reading how your visit went with your friend.

Yes.

The house is as clean as it is going to be (some doors shall remain closed).
Beer is in the fridge along with fruit and vegetables and bacon and eggs and bread...
