The wonderful thing about boxing, is boxing's a wonderful thing!

Starting The Flow

Sorry.  Nothing major to post yet, and I still haven't finished the long post I was working on.  Plus, there is Acres and EotW and many other things I have wanted to write about but haven't gotten to yet.  Bare with me folks - I'm workin' on it!

However, with all the Wak-o buzz on AQ, I did just update the Wakeda Page on our blog.  You'll notice the menu at the top of our blog says "Wakeda 2014" now.  I combed through the discussion board, and hopefully have everyone's sight correctly listed.

What We Wak-os Left Behind

Now that this is safely in their possession (though they won't know it for several hours now ;), I wanted to share with all of you what we left behind as a tribute to Wakeda.  I've never been prouder of what all of you have done to contribute to this event, and every square inch of this masterpiece fills me with pride.  You all came through, above and beyond!  And I know Wakeda will feel the same.  Enjoy - though, no matter how many pics I took, I just couldn't do it justice....

It's Wakeda Week!!!

Ok, notes and things to remember and updates and requests.  Here we go:

First, please let me know if you have reserved your site and where you will be staying.  I have been checking in with the office at Wakeda, but since I know most of you by trailnames, and they only know you by real names, I want to make sure I have an accurate list here, so that if nothing else, I'll know who's who!  But it'll be helpful for everyone attending as well.

And if you haven't reserved yet, please do so, and let them know that you are with the letterboxing group.  They are holding this section for us and telling non-boxers that the sites are unavailable, so let them know that you are with the group.

counting the days. . .

i am in boxing hell. yes, you read that correctly. i am surrounded by boxes. all shapes and sizes. big ones, little ones. some plastic ones but mostly cardboard ones. Almost every single one of them is full.

not a single one of them has a stamp in it. *sigh*

one of them has the other half of my spice rack. another one has all the tablespoons (maybe even the same one; at this point, who knows?) i did manage to find the dvds (N-R) and CD's, and just today, found the hiking gear. 

This is a good thing. Because in exactly 9 days, i'm going Wako. Yes, i am. Even if Bubs beats me with snakes (although if he does, he knows what will happen. . .)

Wakeda Pics To Whet Your Appetite

I spent Friday afternoon over at Wakeda walking the grounds and taking pictures, starting to plan what will go where, answer a few of my own questions and get more in to the zen of the event.  I will also, hopefully, be meeting with Amanda from Wakeda on Monday to ask more questions and do some more planning.  So after tomorrow I'll have even more info for you, but until I post again, here are some pics for you to look at, to make sure you stay focused on the more important things in life, like attending this event!  ;)

The Strength Of A City

Yesterday we went to Boston, which is about an hour's drive for us, to pick up BB3's cousin, who was in Boston since Tuesday attending a medical conference.  He goes back to Houston, TX on Monday, and is staying with us for the weekend.  But we also had planned on spending the day in Boston, and the most important thing on the agenda was visiting the memorial for those fallen and injured in the bomb blasts on the day of the marathon, which was April 15th.

Greenland's One Year Rememberance

Today Greenland, NH is holding a memorial service for the one year anniversary of the shooting death of police chief Michael Maloney.  It was a sad time for the town and he is greatly missed.  Since I wrote about it last year, I thought I'd just make a small post about what is going on today.  Here are some links you can follow if you'd like to read about it.  Thanks!

Sometimes, tiggers are stressed.

i need to go to Disney World. i just thought i would put that out there. sometimes, ya just need to go descend into the fantasy and forget the world exists. Unfortunately, that ain't happening any time soon.

"Why, what is up with the tigs? whatever could possibly be going on???" oh, just moving, AGAIN -although hopefully this is for the last time. And, into a house with no chain smokers living below me so that i can open the windows and ENJOY the fact that i live in the South now where it's balmy and beautiful.

More Info About Weekend At Wakeda

I went out to Wakeda a few weeks ago and took a whole bunch of pictures, and Cheryl and I also went out last Saturday for a quick walk through.  Since it won't be long before its here, here are some things of note and some reminders to help keep things fresh in your minds, and hopefully you're as excited as we are about attending our first event as hosts!  ;)

You Mean, Libraries Aren't Just For Books?

Whoda thunkit!!  Well, apparently Flyingpigs did!  This past Saturday we attended a very fun event at the Manchester Public Library, hosted by Flyingpigs.  I haven't been in a library this big since I was a teen in Indiana.  We have a great library here in Greenland, in a great historical building, but we're a small town with a small library - though, they have quite a bit packed in there.  But I digress.  Onward!

A Little OLT Before We Get Going Again

Yes, yes, yes.  I know.  Things have been waaaay too upside-down this winter.  I expected winter to be slow and steady, leaving me plenty of time for boxes and ltc's and writing and chatting on the boards and creating all sorts of fun stuff for this, that and the other thing.  But, noooo!  Thank goodness I never said I was gonna write every other day or something like that!  (Snicker, snicker, giggle, cough)  So, I'm trying to get back into the transcendental LB state of mind, especially since Weekend at Wakeda will be here soon enough.  I will be posting mucho info about that very, very soon, so stay tuned, but before I do, here are some pics from our last LB adventure, which was back in DECEMBER!  Geez!

Adventures in Alaska continue

So, last we left our intrepid heroine, she was being attacked by giant antlers -because tiggers are curious cats and can't leave anything alone! O.o  Eventually, eeyoremama got me out of the woods, and back on the bleeding bus. It was very heartbreaking to be on that bus. It went speeding past all kinds of lovely turn-offs, where, according to clues, there were boxes *sob* For instance, we sped right by the very house in Girdwood that collapsed during the earthquake and across the street from which Nana C had planted a box. i waved forlornly from the window. . .
