It’s been a happy few weeks in my world.
1) I received a care package from artist Chris Bomely, once very well-known in the Tahoe community for this little guy, who now lives in Austin. We’ve never met, but he found my blog when I applauded his work on the Red Truck a few months back. This seemingly small gesture was HUGE for me. Did I mention I like mail? Especially unexpected packages! The above card was among the items.
2) My ultimate frisbee team, “Butter,” recently took 6th place at the Northern California Sectionals, advancing to Regionals for the first time in its history — and to the surprise of two teams that were ranked ahead of us going into the tournament. One of our rally cheers is “______ is better with butter,” “______ is better with butter,” “everything’s better with butter!” The theme somewhat matches this card, don’t ya think? Though butter would have many many matches.
