What a Weekend

As a non-member of the working world, the concept of a weekend is almost lost on me. Tuesday is Friday is Sunday. About the only differences between a Wednesday and a Saturday are the hours the stores are open and who is around to hang out with (oh, and Jeopardy is alway a rerun on Saturdays.) This weekend, however, felt different. Activities abounded. I'm aware of the fact that tomorrow in Monday. I almost even have a schedule to fall back into. But I digress.

Saturday was the Great Rubber Ducky Escapade, a geocaching event with an elaborate premise, treasure hunt, and pot luck. While the event required more driving and less hiking than I like in my geocaching adventures, it was neat to see so many other geocachers. Oh, and the free cookies didn't hurt either.

Sunday morning presented the opportunity to visit the Summit Park Grange for a fund raising pancake breakfast. The food was pretty alright, but the experience was top notch. Nothing makes you feel more appreciative of being young than spending a couple hours surrounded by people 40 years your elder.

To wind up the weekend, I ended up at a place I've driven by a hundred times and always wanted to visit, but never have; the Old Edison Inn. Talk of the epic table shuffle boards have almost made me pull off the road on many passes. Tonight, those shuffle board tables were conquered! Along with shuffling, there was live music, great friends, and good pub food.

I think I could really get used to this weekend thing.

no pics?

i'd like to take this opportunity to make a plug for the fundraising dinner i'm hosting at the Eagles at 6 pm on March 10th (this Saturday). the cost is $8 and the menu is meatloaf, parboiled potatoes, gravy, salad, roll & apple crisp (or peach cobbler). proceeds go to the Anacortes Animal Relief Fund (helping low-income folks pay their vet bills for high cost surgeries and spay/neuter, which in turn curbs the number of homeless/unwanted animals in Anacortes). volunteers are needed, please, please, please! or if you'd just like to swing by for dinner, it would be great!! thanks so much & wren, i hope you are gonna be there too! there will be plenty of people 40 years your elder!

What exactly IS the meatloaf made of? I'm just sayin, I HAVE noticed a decrease in the number of unwanted animals in Anacortes and an increase in the number of tasty meatloaves in town. Of course, it could be due to the hard work and excellent chefs of A.A.R.F. No, seriously now, this is a great cause for a longtime anacortes charity.
