DC Meet Up 8/1 and Email List

Hey, DC Area people.

First, I think that August 1st sounds best for most people. So let's say we meet that Saturday at about 10:00 in front of the train depot at Cabin John Regional Park in Rockville, MD? IIRC, there are a couple benches right in front of the building where you buy the train tickets. I'll try to grab those, probably nursing the Pookie while Londo chases the Pumpkin. (Note to self: check to make sure Londo can make it that day, otherwise phone a friend/family member to chase the Pumpkin.) I figure we'll spend a few hours there riding the train, playing on the playground and maybe eating some picnic food. Who's in?

Second, I've been thinking about those of us in this area who need support. I think we could be doing more than just getting together 3 or 4 times a year. What if we had some sort of email list that we could use for venting, for requesting help and for doing more impromptu get togethers (like if someone is going to Butler's Orchard and sends out an email to the group to see if anyone else wants to join them).

What do you guys think? Want to send me your email addresses so I can put together a list? We would all have each others email addresses, so be sure to send me one you are comfortable giving out to people. I won't send it out to anyone who isn't in the email group. If you want to do this, email me at caramamamia at gmail dot com with the email address you would use.

I emailed you but thought that I should comment here too. I think that the local list is a great idea and LG and I can't wait to see you on Saturday.

The Beginnings of a Ski Buddy

After lunch, my daughter and I went back up the "magic carpets" to the top of the bunny slopes. She wanted to keep skiing! With me...
