Have you been to a BootsnAll party before? If so, what survival tips can you offer to any newbies?
Yep, this will be my third. As for tips, um let’s see…

1. Don’t make Callilucy mad, you’ll regret it!

2. Don’t play Buck hunter with Boston Bill, he’s just not very good at it.

3. Refrain from throwing out the shocker when you “meant” to throw up the “Annie”. People don’t seem to like that.

4. Be wary of the MAX, BIG train, little, sound!

5. Above all, have a great time and I hope you like Portland as much as I do!!

Thanks for sharing, hillbilly. Be sure to say hi to him if you’ll be joining us at the party!
