I decided to take a snow and mental health day from work today. I got up early and and left early, but when I get as far as Wadsworth, I decided to turn around and go back home. We had snow, and a nice crust of rain on top of that.
5X5: I've been trying to do this 5X5 meme that Jen has tagged me with and I had a special planned. The photo is on my desktop and it's not cooperating with blogger. I tried emailing it to myself so I could upload it from my laptop with no avail. I will be taking the desktop in for some service.
The photo I wanted to use was a shot I took for the Barnbuster.net site. If you ever ate at the old Red Barn restaurants, you will love this site. Rich Perrot has done a fantastic job in posting memorabilia of the chain and there are many pages of old Red Barn buildings and what they are used for now. Going on 2 years ago, I went around and took photos of some. That was one of my first assignments with the WIXYcam.
I have been given another honor. Matthew, of Wixy Rittman Indian Band Gone Bananas fame, has awarded me with the best band announcer award. Matthew is a real fan of the Rittman band and goes to all the shows during the marching season. He did say that one time this season I did scare him as he didn't realize I was starting an announcement. Matthew did recognize tha fact that I am the loudest band announcer. I thank you, Matthew.
And speaking of the Rittman band, be in prayer for Rittman Band director Ed Sims. He has taken time off to tend to his wife who has had complications from surgery. Brenda has told me that he is considering retirement, which is understandable. Mrs. Sims has sacrificed much over the years in order for Ed to be the best band director possible for these student musicians. It's her turn now as she has a ways to recovery. Keep them in your prayers.
