Pirates Tomorrow Night? You Bet!

So why, you might ask...

Because once again our Waterfront Village will have a pirate theme -- so even though we'll get to go and see the movie, we'll also be working it (so to speak)...

I'm going to wear my fabulous (expensive) pirate hat and several of us will be there to hand out things and encourage people to come to Waterfront Village when the festival begins.

Yes, we're barely over a week out from the beginning of the actual festival! I can't believe it.

This Centennial has been years in the making. And it's finally here!

And it's as if they released the latest pirate movie just for us, in a way. (smile) In fact, at the Spring Board Meeting we included a slide in the PowerPoint presentation that featured Captain Jack!

I made good headway on the script today, in spite of that (brief) time out to go to the doctor. Marilyn mistressmarilyn wants it to go to print a week from Friday, which should be no problem at all. I feel very confident that it will be pretty much done within days.

This weekend we're going to focus on Ops materials. Counting and bagging hats and sending out various sets of instructions and tickets and so on. We might need to work late, but that's fine. I'm not stressed about that at all.

I can't believe it's time for another pirate movie! It seems like we just went to that midnight premiere...

Today we had rain again. I hope that's about over! It's getting close to time for us to really need decent weather. (fingers crossed)

I appreciate any and all good thoughts -- and prayers -- that you guys can send our way. We seriously need two weeks (minimum) of good weather, starting on Thursday, May 31! (Please, please, please.)

I've heard the whole Portland weather thing forever, so please don't bother bringing it up now! I just think we've earned it this Centennial, with all the time and effort so many have put into making this year special.

Jumping around (sorry), I have to say that it's fun doing the equestrian entries for GFP. Starlight doesn't have them, so it's really different and interesting. (And easy, frankly!) But, good God, we need to reformat that Script Form for the equestrian units, big time! (I love doing that, so I look forward to it. I've done it more than once with the band script forms...)

Marilyn got home around 9:00, I guess -- and I worked until then. Then we watched some of the "American Idol" finale, which was really good, I thought. Blake was probably my personal favorite, but I loved Jordin, too. So I'm happy with how things turned out. It was great seeing Rubin and Carrie and the many, many others who performed. I love the show. (Marilyn wore her "American Idol" tee to work part of the day -- when she didn't have her uniform on, that is!)

I'm rambling now, so I think I need to sleep. (Even if it is only 11:00 p.m.!)

Those cars that are being torched here in Portland? They're Honda CRVs -- which is exactly the car we have parked in our driveway right this minute! (The festival cars are Hondas this year.) That's a bit creepy, I have to say... Thankfully it's in another part of town.

I phoned my friend yesterday to wish her a happy birthday -- but things are pretty bad for her. Her mother had a fall and now she can't walk at all. (sigh) Poor Sandy. She's hardly up to managing her mother all alone...

And my friend June isn't doing all that well lately, either.

I have a lot of praying I need to do...

Good night!
