Susun: The Poetry Judge
Naturally, Susun gave an enthusiastic "YES!" So, they gave her some scoring sheets and she had to listen intently to each poem and then score it on the sheet. Can you imagine? Susun was both a Chili AND a Poetry Judge in the same calendar year. Now that's cultural diversity personified!
Happy Birthday to Sarah Butterfly today. And Happy Birthday to Sarah's Mom, too. Sarah is shown above with Gage at Lego Land near their home. The boys are shown at left enjoying themselves on the Lego Land playground. Have a Great Birthday, Sarah!
It was a Big Day at the t-stores! I scored some six first class croquet mallets--the kind that you see in $100+ top-of-the-line sets for $4. They wanted $8.50 but I said, "Hey, this doesn't even have balls and wickets," so they dropped the price. After I paid, I told the clerk "Who needs croquet balls, "I just spray paint some baseballs and they work fine." She got a kick out of that quip.
Susun meanwhile volunteered several hours at the Habitat For Humanity dedication of their latest completed home. She came back very inspired by the happiness and joy she witnessed there. Then she went off on her Poetry Caper.
And there's one last little fun vignette to mention: The people who were featured in the blog post "A $10 Catch & Release" sent a beautiful Thank You note for the grenade fuse box. It was quite a touching note and made us both misty-eyed.
And, for good measure, we finished the Alice Cooper golf book about 11 pm last night. All-in-all, it was a very good day.
