Well, it's official - August was the fastest, most event filled month ever thus far. But September promises to give it a lot of competition. And if I hadn't been forced to sit out the last two weeks because of a procedure to cure my ailing left knee, I probably would have been right out there with you. But I'm sitting here, with her (my knee of course) propped up on a pillow, giving her the rest, care, pampering and ice packs she so richly deserves.
In the meantime, I continue to receive information, invitations, notifications of all that's going on in our wonderful, crazy mixed universe. It needs to be shared - so that you can get out there and take advantage of the fun, info, camaraderie that we generate. So, here we go!
