I don't know about you, but I am so glad summer is over!
Let me explain: by nature, you might say I'm a bit of a free spirit...close friends think I would have made a good hippie and should have been named "Blossom" instead of the geographically identifiable, Vickie Darlene. But by nuture, the schoolteacher and the master sergeant had other plans. They were not fans of loose lips or living. But this summer Blossom met Vickie.
Perhaps you noticed I have been AWOL on a number of Friday nights (actually I did take vacation time those evenings). Time spent with old friends...and making new ones! A few weeks ago while shopping for stationery, a viewer asked if I still worked at the station. In case you're wondering, at last check...the garage passcard worked.
In the coming weeks, there are a few more soirees. A friend's 40th birthday celebration and my weeklong "summer" vacation is always slated for late September. But before and after that, expect to see me where you usually do. In fact, I am starting now; I cancelled my last fling to the lake in Arkansas and here I am in my newsroom office before 10:00 a.m. on a Saturday. And I'll look for you Monday evening.
Vickie's back...and "Blossom" is on vacation. Now, let's talk about you. What did you do this summer?
