I will do my very best not to utter the “w” word anywhere in this post. “W” has something to do with the shit that continues to pour out of the sky with regularity. I know the “w” has got a lot of people down but if you need a reality check, talk to someone who is going through cancer treatments.

I attended the Blood Donor clinic yesterday. It is one of my favorite things to do. I love looking around the room and seeing people from all walks of life taking an hour out of their day to give blood. It doesn’t matter about status, body shape, color or creed. Everyone who attends is thinking about the welfare of others. I wrote a story about these clinics in my book. It’s called “Bloodlines” ( pg.87 ). If you’ve never gone before, why don’t you give it a try. It doesn’t hurt and you may very well save a life.

Ok. It’s time to start beating the drum once again about the big fundraiser coming up in three weeks from today in support of the Hot Meal program. The show is going to be a lot of fun and it will be even better if we can fill the place and turn over every nickel to help feed the hungry. If any of you would like to try and sell a handful of tickets, please give me a shout. A dear friend of mine who graduated with me from X in 1973, sent me a cheque for 4 tickets the other day. Impressive and appreciated but even more so because she doesn’t live anywhere near Antigonish. I will be giving those to some people that might not otherwise be able to afford to go.

The Hot Meal program, Day 2, is still set to launch in May if we can put all the pieces together.

And speaking of meals, I once again invite you to join me for breakfast ( or coffee ) this Saturday ( the 5th. ) at 10:00 a.m. at the Prissy Pig. I thought it might be fun to sit around and share story ideas or simply shoot the breeze. I have very few regrets in life but as I get older, I sometimes lament the fact that I don’t see a lot of people socially. Everyone seems to be so caught up with work, family, extended family, caring for elderly parents, babysitting grandkids, that there is very little time , or energy, to just sit and chat with old friends.

Lots of fresh stories coming your way. I haven’t decided about Saturday’s story yet. Are you ready for my take on sex education?

Have a great weekend.

P.S. Not all of you are on Facebook. FYI… I have been nominated as a finalist for a journalism award.
