I’m really going to miss August, the “Book-End Month”. With my affection for numerical oddities, it has been cool having an entire month beginning and ending with 08 as identifiers.

For everyone else, probably not so cool…

Hey, Mrs. That Dan Guy and I were feted in grand style last night, as we attended an awards dinner for the Canadian Diabetes Association. The highlight for us would probably have been the award I received, for Southern Alberta Regional VOLUNTEER OF THE YEAR!!!
Pretty humbling moment, and I sure appreciate the award, but I also enjoy my volunteer role with the organization as well. As a diabetic, it’s been rewarding to get out into the community, to help spread the word about the work this organization does, while offering information to attendees at presentations and exhibits.

As you can see by the pic above, I received an impressive plaque, which now occupies a special place in our main living space. I had to mothball MTDG’s elementary school certificate from her appearance as “the third tree from the left, in Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Oklahoma”.
Wattaya gonna do…

Anyhow, gotta run – I have to polish off any obtrusive particulate matter that may have settled onto my plaque overnight…

Chow for now!!
