If it weren’t for lawn mowing and causes, I would get no exercise.
Since no one wants to read about me mowing the lawn (boy, it was a hot one), let’s talk about that other thing. Join us this Friday when The Wife, The Son, Mary Beth, Tina and many, many more will converge on the track at Fort Zumwalt South High School in St. Peters for The American Cancer Society Relay for Life.
The event begins at 6 p.m. and ends I believe at 6 a.m. I will not be there the entire time. We’ll probably get there late and I dunno when we’ll leave. I’ll stay as late as I have to if someone will drive me home. I don’t expect the Wife and Son to stay all night.
It’ll be fun. We’ll walk. We’ll talk. We’ll walk and talk. We’ll sit and talk. We’ll walk some more. We’ll talk some more. If we stay late enough we’ll start to get giddy and that’s always fun. And it’s all in the name of fighting cancer, so you can feel good about yourself.
If you’re too lazy to make it out to the FZS track, then just send money. To be more specific, send money here:
Now, I know what you’re saying…”Walking around in circles for 12 hours sounds great and all but I want to do more.”
Good news! The following weekend — Saturday, July 25 to be exact — The Hollywood Dash will take place on the campus of St. Charles Community College in Cottleville. It’s a 1-mile run (or in my case, walk) with proceeds benefiting 10 organizations — chief among them the Center for Autism Education. Since it is the law (the law as handed down by my wife) that we attend and/or support all CAE fundraisers, you can bet we will be there.
The race, I mean walk, starts at 7 p.m. There will be activities, crafts, entertainment and food trucks (now we’re talking). The animated feature “Turbo” will be shown at 9 p.m. I will probably be gone by then. Or hanging out at one of the food trucks.

See you at the track!
