Mark your calendars! Meadowfest is coming! We’ve reserved the same group campsite at Jack’s Gulch. June 9 to 12 (Thursday to Sunday).
… and if I break any of these resolutions in the slightest possible way, and if I lose interest or enthusiasm at any moment for the rest of my existence, may God duct tape me to a treadmill with nothing but carrots and celery to eat for the rest of my little life… and may I spend the hereafter watching the Brady Bunch and listening to nothing but Barbra Streisand… so help me Lord Baby Jesus!
What are your resolutions?
