Sometimes a break is needed to take care of stuff when the winds of change sweep through our lives. Deborah is sure that Michael will do well in this transition. D is still catching up on her zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz's from CM RMA II. Not because folks stayed up too late but cuz the lodge where D was staying had loud late nighters every night. D is too old to get by on 4 hours of sleep at night.
D wonders if anyone caught a picture of little Ian, the small boy who scared off the elk on the hiking trail and ran in front of people trying to take a picture of the elk. He was on a hiker's shuttle bus the next day...displaying more of his... ummm... energy. Little Ian was a pip. Ya sure! You betcha!
Colette remembers all that noise, and the phone calls Debbie made to the Admin Building (thanks, Debbie)...... sheesh! It seems that only Deer Ridge Lodge experienced all that noise.
Tom, Colette, and the rest of their hiking crew ran into Ian (and his little sister) the day after Debbie's crew experienced his energy. You could hear him (and his little sister) all over the hiking shuttle. At least he didn't scare away the elk Colette's crew saw on Saturday. Colette will be posting pictures as soon as she has more time.
Colette also wants to add that she, Ann, and Ernie hiked up to the alpine region this year...... quite a feat!! Talk about taking a leap outside one's comfort zone! They had to scale up some rocks next to Timberline Falls to get there....... scary!! No trees up there, just frigid cold wind blowing, and oh yeah..... snow patches. Brrrrr........
Colette is happy to hear that M returned home safely. She will be posting CM RMA 3 on the Events page very soon!!!
Michael is correct..... CM RMA 3 will be in June! Colette's new school district won't let her take time off over the Labor Day holiday, so she had to change the event to June.
Peter has had an unexpectedly interesting few days that began when, on Tuesday morning, his boss walked into his office and asked Peter if he had a passport and would be able to travel this week.
About 4 hours later, after moving around an appointment with a customer and rushing home to pack, Peter was headed south to the beautiful, warm, sunny destination of....
nope, none of the above.
Peter was headed south on the 3.5 hour drive to Fargo, North Dakota for a conference after his colleague had to cancel last minute. Peter had a good time and learned lots.
Peter also tried not to laugh too much at the people from various places all over the USA who were putting on jackets and sweaters while the weather was a beautiful 64 degrees.
Helen is the Oktoberfest chairperson of a large auction at her Parish. She got two cool donations today. Within minutes of each other and from 2 different sources.
#1. A mink coat. (half length)
#2. A Saddle donkey. It is known as a Mammoth donkey....like a Clydesdale is to the horse. The two links were randomly found on the internet:
Oktoberfest is just 10 days away!! Helen wishes that she would have been offered this amazing animal a month ago!
Helen does not know if she can accept the donation!
Maybe it was meant to be though: I had a single tree donated today as well from a Parishioner!! It is about 50 years old. It is similar to this pic:
Please pray for the success of the auction. Last year, it raised about $6,500 in about 7 hours. There is a possibility to raise $10,000 this year.
