Martha and the Vandellas says My Rebecca. She thinks she remembers the sixties. Anyway it is going to be hot today and hotter tomorrow. I think the Seattle record for tomorrow’s date is 96 and it is supposed to be 94 tomorrow. I know that sounds wimpy hot for some of you guys but we are total heat wimps this far north.
Casually Rho our CSWBC asked me what are the dates for next year’s Veranda just like you would ask what the weather will be like tomorrow. Sort of matter of fact like. Really, I’m thinking? Well OK, just in case of a miracle happening and we are all here next year with intact minds at this time how about Friday August 20th – Monday August 23rd. Wowie Zowie!
OK, we got that done what else can we tackle? I might tell you about how the “blog book” is coming. Catalina our Historian is heading up this effort to pare down this blog with it’s 2430 posts into a reasonable length suitable for public consumption. It’s about the 4 C’s: Cancer, Catholicism, Camino and Corn. It’s the story of the backyard camino. It is my story and your story over these years.
And presently we are winnowing down the original text to keep what is important and delete what can be left unsaid. It is a chore. But we get to think about fun stuff too like what the cover should look like and illustrations to include.
Also, next weekend is the Corntine, the shortened version of the Veranda for all my local folks. I have to make a few dozen phone calls to make this happen. It is just a stop by, open house kind of thing. Will have some wine and tapas on hand. If you want to bring some food make it toothpick style so we are all separated. Maybe we will walk a lap every hour on the hour for Saturday and Sunday. I know the original idea was to have corn on the cob for everyone but the crop this year is not up to par and that looks doubtful but blackberries are in full swing and you can UPick. Stop by if you can.
grateful loves, Felipé.
