Moonbounce or Nothing

“i want to give an earmarked gift to Twin Oaks” said a generous ex-member.

“We are always open to presents, what did you have in mind?” i excitedly asked

“a moonbounce for the New Years Eve party”

“Fantastic, i love the idea, but there is some chance the community will not love the idea, can we get something else if that is the case?”

“Nope.  Moonbounce or nothing.”

“Okay, my job is clear.”

First Zoe (Feonix’s sister) and i had to go make sure that there even was space for this 20′ x 20′ installation.  Fortunately, there is one spot which is the Tupelo parking spot.  The next problem is who agrees that this is okay?  it is high impact for a short time – so i walk thru Tupelo and they are universally enthusiastic (tho some more than others certainly) about the idea.  The other organizers for the event Sabine, Carley and Lyndsey were happy to have more kid friendly activities.  The moonbounce will be near one of these cool hexagonal picnic tables and beside it an outdoor hot tub.
