The hyster guy for Grand Floral did not phone me back today. (boo hoo) He's pretty good, though, so I'm sure he'll phone tomorrow...
Of course, I need to work at home tomorrow, so they'll need to direct him to that phone number, or my cell. (I think I gave him that, though.)
The Mayor's assistant didn't get back to me today, either. (I was literally carrying my cell around everywhere, just in case. But no go.) We'd like to confirm if his security people will be attending the parades or no... (Right now the mayor has my cell number to phone if he needs anything, has questions or whatever. I'm not sure how that happened, exactly, but whatever. I can always pass him along to the person he really needs to be talking to, if anything comes up.)
Repeat after me: "Charlie is a volunteer. Charlie is a volunteer." Well, I'm honored to be such a trusted volunteer, clearly... (smile)
However, on the scripting front, I'm close to done. (Yes, I do get paid for that job.) For all intents and purposes it's pretty much finished, although now the Marketing Department is reading it over and making some sponsor-related tweaks. Plus there were a couple of last minute additions (it's a political thing) -- and I've yet to get a few bits and pieces of info for certain entries. (sigh)

Marilyn's out with the Executive Director for a drink so they can catch up with one another and discuss things that can't be discussed in front of others. When she gets back we're going to (again) tackle the Ops packets for Coronation -- hopefully getting them out before we head to...
Can't wait! (grin)
Marilyn sent an email around the office inviting others to join us, but several people here had never even heard of it! (shock) I can't imagine! So I guess it'll just be us. (And maybe Joey fatjoey.)
I'll have to do a 'real' update tomorrow, as it's nearly 11:00 p.m. and we've been going strong all day long... (And tomorrow promises to be another very busy and full day!)
Anyway, for the record, they played "The Boondock Saints" in two theaters at the Lloyd Center Cinema -- and both were sold house. Seriously. There wasn't an empty seat anywhere and they were turning people away!
I'm so glad we went. It was quite an experience!

Fun, fun. Worth losing some sleep -- and dinner -- over!
In other news, our nephew Larry and his wife had their baby boy Levi David today. (They deliberately had it induced to be born on Mom's birthday.)
Yeah, this is our mother's birthday. I doubt she was looking down from heaven to watch Boondock with us -- but there's a good chance Dad did! (grin)
Food and drink and bed are pretty appealing right now, I think, so I'll end for today!
