Had a really nice weekend. Sunday, my cousin, Debbie, whom I've not gotten to see in 14 years, came home for a visit. It was really nice being together with the family without fighting. Who knows how long it will be before I get to see her again. Casey cooked a killer dinner for everyone on Sunday night. He grilled BBQ porkchops and made english peas and corn. Sure made for a hard time walking the dog afterwards. Monday, Casey and I went swimming. One of my little perks for working at a university is using the recreation center for free. It was a great day to swim. Casey did o.k. and managed not to get sunburn. I got a little, but nothing that can't be dealt with.
After having a great couple of days, the weekend ended on a depressing note, however. The local humane association that I volunteer for (it's operated completely by volunteers and NO paid employees) is thinking of completely disbanding. This cause is my absolute heart. We do so much good, and I can't believe that it may completely cease to exist. The problem is we don't have enough volunteers. Anybody got any good ideas for a great volunteer recruiting program?
