We went out for lunch with our friends Kelly and Steve--enjoyed lots of good conversation and a very cutthroat game of food trivia. Of course, the Chef won, but I was a VERY close second. He has taught me well! Great seeing these two--we don't get together often enough! (It was a little windy outside the Norwegian Rat Saloon!)
My birthday buddy Luke turned 3! He wanted a Spiderman costume for his bday so Gigi and Grandpa obliged. He is so much fun! Rich also had a birthday in June but I apparently have no photos and he is not like his wife, who likes lots of attention on her birthday. He would rather just let it slide. I don't think we did anything special and he probably even cooked for himself. Hard to believe we are both 61 now. My, doesn't time slip right past us when we aren't paying a bit of attention?? We did another online birthday give-back bash through Donors Choose and raised about $1700 for classrooms in need. Thanks to all our family and friends who contributed!
Melanie's turn to leave. She's one of the people I've known the longest in Unalaska; we worked together at one point, and she's been my work-out "encourager" and Scrabble playing partner, among other things, for a long time. I'm gonna miss her, too!
One last wave and she's off!
Now summer is winding down and I am actually in Texas, making the rounds and seeing all the kids. Blogging that long vacation really put me behind! :)
