Life has been busy. Last week, I was running around like a crazy person trying to get ready for the Alaska Ocean Film Festival--a little fundraiser for my job. There was also a big Museums and Historical Societies Conference going on all week--lots of people here from all over the state and elsewhere. There were so many activities going on that it was mind-spinning. I was nervous about the film fest, thinking no one would show up because of all the other stuff, even though we purposely coordinated with the conference. Thankfully, I didn't have to worry--we had two very well attended showings, one with standing room only, much to my surprise and delight.
The Blueberry Bash is coming up on Sunday. I decided to have a practice run so spent several hours last weekend making my entry. It might need a little tweaking, but that hasn't kept us from munching on it every day. I think Rich and I might be in the same category this year, which will make things a little bit interesting for us! I can't say what we are making since at least one of my friends is a judge and might end up with our category. No undue influence and all that.
Bruce Springsteen turned 60 today. Yo, Bruuuuuuuuce, happy birthday from one of your Jersey girls! I only wish you'd consulted me about your tour schedule so we could have crossed paths when we go out on vacation in November. :) Daniel played "Thunder Road" on the radio for me, remarking that the song came out in 1975. I was living in San Marcos, Texas, going to college. Probably had it on an 8 Track. :) It seems very long ago but that's still one of my all time favorite songs. What were you doing in '75?! (Okay, I know some of you were not even born...don't rub it in!)
