For those of you who haven't been hearing much from me, well, I've been embroiled in making the arrangements for the Emporia Rotary club's 90th anniversary celebration today. (This is what I get for being the club president. You there in the back row, you can stop laughing now.) And I'm happy to report that the big do came off without a hitch: my advance headcount came within three of the actual attendance, the entire Rotary district leadership trekked over from their various towns, the displays of ancient club memorabilia pleased the older members, the program was interesting enough, the Sergeant-at-Arms told a couple of decent jokes, and the Country Club actually served a nicely plated lunch instead of our usual institutional-food buffet. This being Kansas, and most of the members being men over 50, the menu was steak, baked potato, and green beans. I didn't hear any grousing at all.
And there was cake.
I am so tired.
In other news, I have 16 days to get ready for the trip to Japan. (Ack!) And Domuya has sent me a tracking number for the light tan body I ordered.
