I have Followers! and News...

I updated this blog to use Blogspot's new Followers gadget and it works just fine. Martha and Caron both have wonderful blogs of their own, and I want to encourage everyone to use the new widget and go visit them from here. You won't be sorry.

We had our monthly Blanketeer meeting today at lunch. Very bad news! Our fearless leaders, Lynn and Kerri, who have served faithfully for 3+ years are resigning. Lynn has taken a promotion in Phoenix and will be completely leaving us! Boo hoo!!! Rachel and I agreed to take on the leadership roles. It's really important to both of us to keep the Blanketeers going. We have made commitments this year, both to the USO and to the Snowball Express, and we're not willing to let them down. Fortunately we have a core group of dedicated volunteers, so I'm confident we'll be able to carry on. From now on, my middle name is "Delegate", because that's what I'm going to be doing. lol I already owe a big shout out and "thank you" to Sheila, who wrote up the minutes of today's meeting. That's one task I'm *always* willing to delegate!

Thanks for the plug, Susan! Hope you're staying warm in Texas. It's -13 in Michigan.
