SAD NEWS: My boss approached me yesterday and told me that he has liver cancer. Thank goodness I was sitting down, because I probably would have fallen over. My jaw dropped and I just sat there. He was in surprisingly good humor about it, telling me that he had just found out after having had a biopsy on Friday. He told me he was going ono vacation for a few days to forget about everything, and that he'd deal with it upon his return early next week.


Late last year, when I was first told I'd be reporting to him, I was apprehensive about reporting directly to a vice-president. Who wouldn't be? But he turned out to be the nicest guy around. Our first one-on-one began with him asking me, "So, how can I help make your job easier?" He's incredibly supportive, and always has time to answer questions.

So, all I can do is pray, pray, pray. I hope he'll be OK.

Well, now that I've bummed all of you first thing in the morning, on to something more fun. Last evening, my friend Stuart and I went to the Jefferson Carnival, a little (very little!) local fair held yearly in the parking lot of the volunteer fire department. It's very bumpkin, very country; you definitely don't go there for class or elegance. But it's charming in its own way. Aside from the usual midway attractions (turtle races, ring tosses, pony rides, etc.), there was a 50's rock'n'roll band as well as some mighty yummy-smelling food. But I was good...I'd eaten at home before going and I didn't buy *anything*! Now, I was tempted by a waffle cone ice cream sandwich, but I didn't succumb. After I got home, I had a cup of blueberries instead. My stomach and my waistline are greatly thanking me this morning.

But I wanted to share this one picture from the know you're at a small local fair when you see a sign like this:

I wasn't tempted one bit since I don't like Oreos (yes, you read correctly).

Anyway, it's time to get to work. I'm training my backups today so it's going to be busy. Happy Wednesday!
