White Dog held her breath and the others peeked around the corner as I fired up the computer. Last night's gremlins seem to have gone back into hibernation or maybe I was in a luckier phase of the moon, but so far everything is back to normal. (I superstitiously wonder if the composite lumber that my computer desk is made of still counts as "knocking on wood.")
This morning the White Dog Army, Steve and I went back to Haynes Park for another visit and to meet with the Special Events planner from the City of Rio Rancho. Not only is the Park perfect but the community is supportive and the officials enthusiastic about partnering to make a Walk to End Cancer happen in their town. We are excited and thrilled with such cooperation and were amazed that several of the administration had taken part in last year's walk (in another town) just because they believed in the cause. We are off to a fantastic start and will share the journey as this year's Event shapes up.
Meantime, mark September 30th on your calendars. Anyone who wants to join us in New Mexico is welcome. Please, we once again ask for you to send us a photo and story tribute to your loved ones, two- and four-legged who are cancer heroes or who are Warriors who walk beside us in spirit. Our Tribute Wall was one of the most incredibly moving parts of what we did last year and it is vital to remember those we love and honor.
