Chili Bar Recap...
A special thank you to the fine gentlemen who greeted everyone who walked through the door. Thank you Dan and Randy!
To all the staff at the Black Horse - Bill... Andre... It was a true pleasure working with all of you and thank you for embracing Team Vogel.
And the best way to bring the event to life for all how could not make it - images from Miss Keelie Ritter. Thank you Keelie for always capturing the spirit of the event.
Bowling is Here...
Please note - although the 4pm and 7pm shifts are full, we still welcome people to come watch and enjoy the evening with us. If you have the desire to bowl a bit - we still have openings for the "All You Can Bowl" Shift from 2 pm - 3:30 pm. This time is geared towards people of all ages (young and old) who want to come out - bowl a bit and have some fun.
If you are interested in the "All You Can Bowl" Shift, please send a note to Brad so we can plan accordingly. (The cost is $10 per bowler.)
I'm looking forward to Saturday - instead of stretching and preparing my bowling gear this year - I am taking a different approach... Rest. Hoping this will help me break 100 at least in one of my games :).
A Really Cool Picture...
She shared things with me and as we were wrapping up our conversation (for we needed to get to the beach for the sunset), she said she needed to run back to her room to grab something she wanted me to have.
We made our way to the beach, and she joined up with us and handed me a stone. She said she brought it with her and knew she needed to give it to someone she met on the trip. And that person was me. The stone is for protection. I was completely honored. I took the stone and safely tucked it in my swimsuit top and wanted to get a fun picture with the sunset. Here's the image below...And yes the part that is glowing is the stone safely tucked under my suit and sun dress. Pretty amazing :). (And just for the record, this is the exact image that came up on the camera - no photo shop here.)
...and a Note from Rach.
Yesterday as I was approaching the "Why?" - I decided to think about what Heaven is like. Is it an amazing place where everything is individually perfect for you. The perfect temp. - the perfect location - and you get to do exactly what you love while the ones closest to you are living in their personal paradise next to you....Will we not care when we get there?
So, for those of you who may not know this about me - I'm a planner. And I feel I need to think about these things. I've come to the conclusion that my Heaven is going to be a tropical paradise on a beach. Probably in the 80s (maybe reaching 90 every now and then). And all the materials I could ever dream of for doing projects will be perfectly organized and at my finger tips - in an amazing studio on the ocean. Every project tried - will be a masterpiece and of course there will be a secret button to push for clean up.
What will your Heaven be like?
Stay Warm and Cuddle your animals :)
