I’ve been meaning to follow up and share the link to the JLC blog. It’s probably not of much interest to non-members, but as a blogger and JLC President, I’m pretty excited about our newest form of communication and marketing. The most recent post features our first fundraiser of the year at Trump Winery.
I know some of you are curious, so left to right: Fundraising PR, Fundraising Chair, yours truly and Nominating & Placement vice-chair. Didn’t I just say yesterday how lucky I am to serve with some talented, dedicated leaders? Never mind that we share a fondness for wine too…
While I’m babbling, I’m pretty sure I’ve already shared how much I like Firehouse Dog, but Gretchen and I just watched it again. Yeah, Sissy was in the room, but she doesn’t WATCH movies the way Gg does. No, it’s not related to being one-eyed; Sissy DOES like wildlife shows and STILL watches them with the Knight.
It’s definitely a “family” movie, but I love the almost vintage fire engine, the diversity of the firefighters, and the star is a terrier. What’s not to love? (Well… there *IS* something about it that makes me cranky, but it’s a spoiler so… shhhh….)
Along the same theme, I plan to spend the weekend reading, walking the dogs and reconnecting with downward facing dog. Yes, the reading has a dog theme too. First up is That Old Flame of Mine, with a heroine who just happens to have been a Chicago Fire firefighter, and I’m betting the dalmatian on the cover represents a canine character in the book. I’d already set my sights on that book before we found Firehouse Dog on TV, and yes, I’ll let you know if it’s a must-read soon.
What’s on your weekend agenda?
