New Friends

It is the evening of a very busy work week, and very busy people can lay their cares aside to participate in a creative activity of mutual interest, a balloon jam. Distances to get there don't matter much, when to be able to share ideas and creations with others is foremost in mind. Participation brings immense satisfaction. When you next see a balloon tying clown or magician, you may understand the underlying skill, passion and love of communication combined with hours of creative practice and devotion that are on display.
A balloon jam is a great way of meeting new friends.

Skin Care Event

Christie and I enjoyed an invitation to Cameo College's (Murray UT) annual Skin Care Event yesterday. It was a blast! Heaps of people all happily doing things. Interesting vendors and enough cookies and cakes to keep any Muppet happy. I was able to transfer to a barber's chair to be given a hot towel treatment and shave by Braxton (must follow that lad in his career aspirations in SLC). Christie availed herself of several treatments to make her more beeyoutiiful - great result down to the red toenails. Amazing how many hours passed so quickly. The college is certainly a space age training facility in the pampering arts. We were impressed.

I managed to get myself wet a couple of times over the last few days - the fact is, it was raining. Moving to and from my van is easier to accomplish if I am not encumbered by an umbrella, so I take the easy way out. After all, I can always drip dry. Some Laws of Physics come into play - something about evaporation and cooling. Anyway I managed to feel a little stuffy yesterday. Because of my general excellent health, I have been able to bound back today for a really exciting, funfilled day of work. I like what I do, I like the variety. It is very energizing - like the bunny.
Kevin and Cyril (pictured) get to play with me today in the Valley Fair Mall. Their antics are known to draw people to talk to the Realtor (me). People talk to furry animals in any language where they might normally avoid me in my scooter.
