Just a quick blog post this morning as I’m already well behind schedule fore getting out of town today. I’m taking the M6 on its second road trip, this time to Black Mountain, NC for its first LEAF. If my old Flickr friend Carissa, who was another of my blogging inspirations, still read this space she might be proud of me for my continuing patronage of the festival. It’s fun, but more importantly it’s another opportunity for me to hang with the Raleigh Royalty.
Who You Calling An Old Sod?
I arrived at ITP-Reader Barb’s house in time to see that a good 2/3 of the sod laying was complete. It was not my intention to arrive so late but even escaping the office at 4pm meant that I had to contend with shitty traffic to go from Perimeter Mall to Marietta (just think how great traffic will be when the Braves play there!)
I did my best to help finish the project, which unfortunately for them happened before when we ran out of sod before cleared dirt area. Best of luck on finishing the rest, Barb.
For our efforts we were fed a spectacular Mexican meal, complete with lettuce picked freshly from their garden!
Thanks for the meal, Barb, and the good times hanging with friends.
Sadness In The ITP Community
It’s bad enough when you here one set of friends having to put down a member of their family — RIP Farley, but two in as many weeks?
Last night while communicating plans for meeting up today I was informed that the Raleigh Royalty had to say good-bye to Bacchus, ITP-Reader Lisa’s long-time companion. Over the years Bacchus and I became close buddies, often sleeping on the pullout couch at the same time.
As always my condolences go out to anyone having to deal with this reality.
Sorry to end on a downer. Have a great weekend everyone! Remember, Sunday is Mother’s Day, do what you need to do. I’ll be placing a call on Sunday, probably late in the evening just in case my mother has gone to play bingo that night.
