I'm hosting an Open House event at my site this coming Saturday, May 15th from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.

If you're not doing anything anyway and want to see the interesting town of Licking (click here to find out how it got it's name --> http://train.missouri.org/licking/govern.htm), you're invited to stop by! :grin:

Send me an email or PM if you're interested and I can send you directions!

By the way, the population is much larger than the census count in 2000, of 1471, since well, they added a large state prison here. We get to count the inmates in the city population. :evil:

Martin Colony History: Will add later

Kathy, I do wish I could be there. You're not too far away from my old stomping grounds. I was born and raised in Baxter Co., Arkansas, in the Mountain Home/Salesville area.

Kathy:

Hope your open house goes well and hopefully you got it posted in your local paper that is supporting you. You are doing such a great job in promoting martins in your area. Maybe one of these days, we can get up there to see you and your colony.

Kathy, I would sure like to have come there, but me and Lucky would have had to have caught yesterdays stagecoach to get there by Saturday,it's a long ways through all those hills and hollers from here. I sure hope you have a good turnout at your dooin's. That casey's pizza will be selling like hot cakes! I sure hope someone worked on that entering/leaving Lickin' sign after your big population explosion, by the way do yall count the people in the cemetery on your census also? Here's hoping you have a good turnout on Saturday, you go girl!!! Jimnks

Tim, thank you so much! It has been an intimidating and daunting process, but I have been rewarded by meeting some of the coolest people in this area!

I sent invitations to the MO Conservation Dept. and the Audubon society and have gotten such a good response, that I decided to not put it in the paper. I'll start small - maybe next year I'll invite a larger group, when I feel more confident! :wink:

Caroline - I would love to meet you! It's a very small world. :wink:


Jim, they've still got hitching posts in Licking that you could tie your horse up to! :lol: :lol: :lol: Thanks - you always make me laugh to the point of tears. :grin:

No - they caught us when we tried to count the cemetary folks, but they were ok with the people counting their coon dogs - go figure! :lol: :lol:

Kathy,

Too funny! :lol:

Approval process still in the hopper - expecting possible guests Friday night that I didn't know about till this evening. Still hoping, but my hopes are a little dim at the moment. I'll definitely let you know if we get the green light....and I really hope the weather holds up for your day!

Just to let everyone know - due to the rain & cold we're having this week & tomorrow the temps drop even more, I'm rescheduling the open house event to May 22nd, 9 AM to 12 Noon.

If anyone is interested, please contact me!
