It's Not Just Me

Okay, so maybe I'm the only one that will think this little story is cute, but I want to share it anyway: 

Yesterday I went for a roller blade.  On my way out the door, I saw a girl running in a pink shirt.  Cute!  And I'm wearing a pink tank top!  As I rolled down the pavement toward the beginning of U.S. Highway 41, I noticed another runner -- wearing a pink shirt!  Cool!  Everyone out on the road is wearing pink!

My  roller blade was quite wonderful.  I spun back down the hill in front of the General Store and my trail runner friend popped out of the trail head wearing -- you guessed it -- pink tank top!  Oh, the glory of pink.  It has power in numbers.

And just so you don't think I'm the only person affected by summer up here, let me tell you of another realization.  Yesterday I started collecting door prizes for the Fat Tire Festival.  As I went around talking to various business owners, I got the same daze-eyed look from many of them with the arm flail and comment, "It's August."  

I know!  So it's not just me who gets thrown into a hardly-a-moment-for-myself-I-can't-believe-all-the-people-around-I-can't-wait-for-October tizzy.  Why?  Because it's August.  That's all I can really say.  But hey, at least we're busy!


  1. Back in NYC and wishing I was still there...was great to meet you and I look forward to your posts to keep me up to date with CH doings! Meanwhile I have about 600 pictures from this summer to edit...

  2. What sort of door prises are you looking for? Are you only interested in things from Copper Harbor businesses? I'd be happy to donate one of my necklace/pendant combinations. Check out my site if you're interested. It's From there you can get to my Etsy ads and find some pendants. I'm looking for a vendor to carry my pendants and turnings in Copper Harbor, so if you know any shop that might consider carrying them please put them in touch with me. That way I could write off my trip to CH as a business expense. I'm overdue for a visit anyway.

  3. Dee, lovely to have met you! I hope you have lots of good memories to keep you peaceful in NYC!

    Dennis, you do great work! I don't know how else to get ahold of you, but if you'd like to donate a piece to the Fat Tire cause, that would be most excellent! If you are still interested, send me your contact info.
