March 14, Pi Day. What a crazy day that was. But let’s start with the night before. My son, Ike, and my sister, Tina, were both staying over when the guest bathroom toilet decided to leak. Pun intended. In preparation for a craft to make at the luncheon Tina and I drove around picking up (stealing) those free Land and Homes magazines. Seventy. Seventy magazines. That’s a lot of sneaking around at night. The morning of the luncheon we decided to go out for breakfast to celebrate Ike’s birthday. I was looking forward to spending time with Ike and Tina. No relation to the Turners. My phone started ringing and ringing but I, being present in the moment, ignored it. Soon enough I realized someone was really trying to get hold of me. I spent our birthday breakfast on the phone making decisions and returning calls. I wasn’t the only one ignoring my phone that day. After going down my list I eventually passed (dumped) everything onto Kay. She got the team together and 70 calls went out to our members within the hour. Kay was a lifesaver! To be fair, many members did answer but were up to their eyeballs with other stuff. I had a cold breakfast and Ike was running late, oh well. The luncheon would be held the next day without a speaker. Tina, our speaker, had a sick horse and a vet was on the way. Well gang, we’ve entertained ourselves before and we did it again. Thank you Pat and Jodie for filling our afternoon with fun. I’m proud of all of us, we pulled things together, we showed up on a Friday for lunch, we held our elections, and all went well. You’ll have to wait till Tina comes back to find out what magazines and self-defense have in common.
