Next Meetup Sat, Oct 3 @ 4 p.m.

Thanks to all who came out to the last meetup tubing the Edisto River. I had a great time and will definitely add that to my summer to-do list for next year.
Katie made an excellent suggestion for the next meetup and has Done the Work to organize it. Here’s a copy of her note below. Details and ability to RSVP are on the meetup site here:

I hope everyone is STAYING SAFE during these UNPRECEDENTED times. 
Because the river float was not up everyone's alley, we decided to schedule another meetup outside the 6 week cycle. Jennifer will be posting it on NA Meetups soon! [I will post the link when available]
When: Saturday, October, 3 from 4-6pm
Where: Holy City Brewing ( 1021 Aragon Ave, North Charleston, SC 29405 at the picnic tables in the back of the building.  Park and face the brewery, walk around the right side of the building near the event center under construction. No masks required because you aren't going in the building!
  • Holy City has a full bar and good food and is family friendly. Dogs are not people there so leave them at home. 
  • Some of the picnic tables are on the marsh. Depending on where we end up sitting, you might need bug spray!
  • Porta potties so you don't have to mask up to use the inside restrooms. 
  • Holy City requires a mask when ordering at the outdoor walk up counter, We can do the work to order for those who don't want to mask up.   
  • They ask to limit it to 8 people per table, and they don't take reservations, so please RSVP so we can get there early enough to grab good tables near each other!
I'm up there a good bit, so if I left anything out, just ask! 
TYFYC and I hope to see you there!

Oh, and ICYMI because you ff through the second donation segment and/or meetup reports, I did a promo that got played on Sunday the 20th.

Next Meetup Sat, Sept 5

Many, many thanks to Kevin for hosting the last meetup. It was an excellent afternoon!
Next meetup, we will be taking advantage of a local treasure. . .tubing the Edisto River from Givhans Ferry State Park. Kevin and his family went twice last month and Dame Beth has been as well. Sounds super fun! (NOT super painful like the Moderna ‘rona vaccine! *rubbing my arm*)
If you will be in town Labor Day weekend, we’ll be there Saturday, Sept 5. Timing is kinda impor’an’ so we can all launch together. The whole journey takes 2-3 hours depending on if/when we “pull over” at beaches etc. There is a great company that will take care of equipment, transit back etc if you book via the link below. Not totally necessary to pre-book if you’re not sure if you can make it, as long as you arrive at the right time to link up with us on the day.
I’m thinking we should target a launch around 11 am, so arrival about 10:30ish.
I realize this meetup is not everyone’s cup of tea and our next meetup will be more conventional. 🙂 We’re booked with dogs every weekend in Sept after Labor Day so I can’t host in September, but if the mask mandate goes away we could go back to a bar/restaurant. It was originally set to end at the end of August, but I wouldn’t be surprised if they pushed it out. . .fingers crossed that it isn’t extended.

Save the Date – Next Meetup Sat Aug 1 @ 1pm

ITM y’all! Kevin has generously offered to host the next meetup where masks will be optional while we’re under mandatory masks here in the Lowcountry.

Kevin will grill burgers and chicken.

Bring a lawn chair, your favorite side-dish and libations for an afternoon of trigger-free conversation.

Kids welcome (trampoline and tree swing).

Here’s the link on the meetup site.

Please RSVP via the meetup site, to me via direct email, or to the listserv and I will send you the address.

Hope to see y’all there and TYFYC! xoxo

Next Meetup June 20

Next meetup at Taco Boy downtown on Saturday the 20th. It’s also on the meetup site here.

Taco Boy is now taking reservations online, which is way better than in mid-May when we had to call and hang out in the parking lot until they texted us.

Maybe by the 20th all of this ‘rona $h*t will be out the window. Who knows. For now, I have reserved a table of 8 that has 7. Anyone beyond the first 8 will need to make their own reservations. 🙂 Here’s the link.

Choose your own adventure!

RSVP to me via the meetup link, or preferably by email by the 18th and I will update everyone via email on the list I have etc. If you’re making your own, that would be very useful to know as well.

We’ll get the meet-shoot in the books soon as well. . .really looking forward to that in these nutty times. Good gravy.

If you’re new – pics from past meetups below. TYFYC!

Next Meetup – Sat May 2

ITM y’all – thank you to everyone who defied the Wuhan virus fear mongering and came out yesterday!

Save the date – next meetup will be Saturday, May 2. . .technically 7 week cycle as I can’t do the previous weekend.

This is Derby Day as long as the Derby isn’t cancelled in the meantime!


Not pictured - My Husband, Sir Buc, Sir Daniel, Erin and their growing family. TYFYC!

Donating toward Animated No Agenda

ITM y’all! I’ve had quite a few questions about this, so here are the options if you want to show Value for Value re: Animated No Agenda.

Option 1 – Show Credit: If you want NA show credit toward your peerage, but you also want to let John & Adam know that you are donating in recognition of the animations, you should use the first link below. It goes direct to the NA PayPal, but has a special notation that it came from supporting Animated No Agenda.

Donate here direct to the show for show/peerage credit

Option 2 – Donate to the Art Director and Get Credited on YouTube: Alternatively, if you want to help me defray the costs of the software I am using and any future marriage counseling I may need (as my husband gets more annoyed with my ANA obsession 🙂 ), you can donate to me via the second link below and I will of course split all proceeds with the show.

You won’t get credit toward your peerage, but you will get my everlasting gratitude, and a credit in the end of the next clip I produce and in the YouTube notes of that clip. 🙂

Donate to my S-corp (called IITA) for credit in the next clip and I will also share with the show!

If you are allergic to PayPal, you can send checks by snail-mail to the address below. Make the check out to IITA Inc. and put ANA in the notes field. You might want to email me too as I don’t visit the box very often. 🙂

Save the Date and SEWE

***I sent this via the Lowcountry listserv, but posting here too for those who haven’t yet subscribed.***

ITM y’all – thanks again to those that came out last Saturday. When I mentioned that the next 6-week cycle would overlap SEWE I must have been letting the vodka talk.

  • Next meetup will be in March. . .probably Saturday, March 14.
  • SEWE is always around Valentine’s Day and is in less than 2 weeks.
  • I know how I made the mistake in my head, but it would take too long to explain and is dumb anyway. 🙂

In any event, Gary and I will still be venturing to at least the art portion of SEWE at Charleston Place on Saturday, Feb 15. I know I went on and on (and on) about it, but it is a great event with activities all over the peninsula. I highly recommend the birds of prey demos (Marion Square), the dock dog competition (at Brittlebank) and of course the ART (Charleston Place and the Gaillard). They also have a lot of hunting and fishing gear for display and sale. Guns, guns, guns! Reels, reels, reels! And also some serious freaking knives. See

If you have any plans to go to Charleston Place on Sat the 15th, let me know. We are dog sitting that weekend so can’t do the full SEWE experience, but we’ve made acquaintances with some of the artists that we’d like to see again this year.

I’ll let you know when I’ve scheduled the next “official” meetup for mid-March.
