Tonight’s THE Night!

Tonight’s THE night! I can’t wait to see everyone at the Bowling Benefit and Silent Auction! I am overwhelmed by the enthusiasm and generosity people have shown. What a bunch of good eggs you are!

Despite feeling pretty crummy after receiving a Neupogen shot after chemo yesteday, I couldn’t resist taking a couple of turns on my bike with Theo and Don — up and down our little street and around our next-door neighbor’s circle drive. It was glorious to feel the 70-degree air on our faces. Spring is indeed just around the corner!
Speaking of which, there are lots of sports packages up for auction tonight that are perfect for people who are chomping at the bit to get outdoors and breathe in that fresh air. Today is Opening Day for Mystic Creek Golf Club, and there will be two golf packages available tonight — one for their Mystic Creek location and the other for their Timber Trace property. Both include 18 holes of golf for four people and a cart.
Other sports packages include two tix to next week’s game between the Detroit Red Wings and Vancouver — NINTH ROW! There are also tickets for basketball lovers  — two Piston tickets with a parking pass for April 6 and four Piston tickets for April 8.
Looking for a get-away? How about two nights at The Inn at Old Orchard Road in Holland, Mich. Betsy is the Innkeeper and not only is her place beautiful, she is one chef extraordinaire! Dip your toes in Lake Michigan, check out the downtown shops, or just settle in and take a nap.
Wanna stay closer to home, but still pamper yourself? There are pedicures and massages up for bid, as well as a Movie Night Gift Basket.
Other items up for grabs: A hand-crocheted, breast-cancer themed afghan and several hand-made necklace and earring sets — think Mother’s Day! Beautiful Miche bags — that’s what I carry every day.
There are autographed books, posters, and CDs.
And lots more.
Looking forward to seeing everyone there! And yes, I know what you’re thinking. Is it too late to sign up to bowl?
I checked with the Powers That Be this morning and there are just a few spots left. If you would still like to join us on the alley, contact Kristi Rugh Kahl at: as she is Officially In Charge!
Don’t forget that you don’t have to bowl to stop on in, say hello, check out the Silent Auction.
I got a great night’s sleep last night and feel the effects of that awful shot waning even as I write this — so I’m looking forward to energy galore to share with all of you tonight! You know how I love being with people! See you there!

It sounds wonderful, wish we could be there, but live out of state. I hope everything is better than you could imagine. Have a great time.
