Racing Around....

Two things...

First, I'm going to be off to an unofficial class reunion that will include all four years I attended Interlochen Arts Academy, plus a couple years on either side. A number of the folks I knew as a student will be there and I haven't seen them in... well... ages! So, it should be an interesting experience. I couldn't attend the first one that was held last year, but they even jammed together and took over a local eating establishment as entertainment one of the nights. Very cool. So, that means Stampeaz will be closed for a few days, since there is no way I will ask the kind soul who is house sitting and taking care of my critters for me to try and figure out my order system! LOL!


Second, I am going to be participating in the inaugural Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure in my area on September 19th. A friend and colleague at my day job is currently undergoing chemotherapy and recovering from a mastectomy and I wanted to put together a team to race for her life. I will also be celebrating my own 9th year cancer-free on October 4th, so I'm racing in gratitude for the gift of life I have been given and to find a cure so that others can have that same gift. If you would like to donate to my efforts, click here to get to my donation page. Thank you for considering a donation to fight breast cancer! This is the first time I have been on the fund-raising end of one of these events. I usually give to the other racers! I'm looking forward to it.

When I get back from Interlochen, I plan to pounce on the PZ Kut problem with renewed energy and give you an update about where that stands shortly thereafter. I keep thinking that things will settle down. I guess I need to simply accept that my life is mildly nuts.....

1. All life is mildly nuts.
2. Enjoy your vacation.
3. Good luck with your race, and may you raise much money.
4. The only reason we're so rabid about PZ Kut is because you've spoiled us so well.
