A Quickie and more Exciting News!

**Before I begin, in case an extra special reader comes for a blog visit...
HAPPY DAD'S DAY DAD!!!

Now that I have gotten that important bit covered, on to the post...
Re: the title--Get your mind outta the gutter--I meant a quick post!
And, once more, this is me... still swearing that, very soon I *AM* going to come visit blogs where a comment from me is now long-overdue! I promise, I really am thinking of you... individually... by name and sending positive, happy thoughts! And I *AM* going to visit lovely new followers too! Just as soon as I'm home and able to be online for more than a day (or part of a day, as the case may be).

And why IS summer soooo chaotic anyway? Do you notice this too or is it just me? Does summer fly by while you were busy doing something time-consuming like... ya know... blinking?? Once?! I've barely gotten to taste the sweet air of summer and already I can see fall approaching on my calendar as I book events! Crazy. So, anyway, I'm off-and-gone yet again (poor Jhon, I've been gone so much lately)... this time I'm headed up to the river to wear my "Whitewater Raft Guide" hat for a 2-Day trip. It's funny, I'll be working but I think it is very much going to feel like a vacation! I'll be "off the technology map" and will fall asleep in my tent listening to the river... after long days of hard physical work. Can't wait!

The exciting news? I'm the monthy Featured Artist on the website for Downtown Stockton Alliance! You can read the feature here (scroll down just a bit on the page when you get there):

A HUGE Thank You to the Downtown Stockton Alliance folks for being SO wonderful, helpful, and for so warmly embracing this lil' Sacramentan!

A couple "photo-teasers" of posts to come... (bet you can guess where these are).




















Ok, off to tie up some loose ends & pack! Sending warm thoughts, a smile, & heartfelt wishes for a wonderful weekend!
