Just Another Meatless Monday #74 Dream Come True

Right now I'm living the old adage of making hay while the sun shines. "Hay" meaning working a couple paying jobs, on top of everything else in my life, when the opportunities arose. Who am I to turn down money in this day and age? I'm going to try and keep posting this week, but I have limited time and brain cells.

I don't have a vegetarian recipe lined up, well I do but it's a long story. I decided instead to tell you about my dream come true today. A lot of folks have a bucket list but I think I just have a wish list. I don't want think about kicking the bucket, but I can think about dreams coming true and not feel sad. And today a dream came true. I sat in the grass in Palmer, Alaska and watched Garrison Keillor perform live. Yes The Summer Of Love tour came to Alaska, and the Alaska State Fair, a mile from my house. How cool is that? I was at one point 20 feet away while he crooned an Elvis tune to a sleepy baby in the crowd. He wanders while he weaves his lovely stories, thrilling folks as he strolls by. The Guys All Star Shoe band were there, Rich Dworsky, Fred Newman too! Dream. Come. True.

Then I went back to the booth I'm working at the fair and worked until 10:00 tonight, wrote this and will be up to work in the school by 6:30. I'm tired, I'm down and what a great day. 





Peace and Love--

  1. I so know what you mean about a bucket list making you sad! I've always thought 'why make death the deadline? Why not do the things I want to do so that they make my time here more full, more fun and more interesting?!" Glad you had a good day. And, I recommend coffee in the morning!

  4. I feel the same way about Bucket List and that's why I don't have one.

    I always wanted to visit Alaska. My hubs works on oil rigs in Northern BC and never been that way, but we are making plans to visit next summer and drive all the way up the Alaska Highway....can't way.

    Anyway, thank you for hosting great linky.

  6. hey! that's awesome!
    He's one of my favorites too. I first read his stories when introduced to him by a professor. then found his show on a local radio station. When it stopped airing it, found the one in Buffalo NPR, the reception was very poor. We found it on the computer and even enjoyed it on the free sirus radio when we got a new car. We've gone to 2 cinema casts. Yes, fun indeed. K, I'll stop now, i sound like a stalker.
    Glad you enjoyed it.
