Throw Me a Bone (or Ten)

27 Jan

My birthday is on Tuesday. I’ll be 35 years old. What do I want for my birthday? I’m glad you asked. Help me raise at least $100 for the KLM Foundation, a South African organization that provides scholarship and leadership development opportunities to high-school students from rural, impoverished areas. Just go to, click the “Donate Now” button in the top right corner, and put my name on the line “in support of a participant for the Longtom Marathon.”

Oh, did I forget to mention I’m running a half marathon at the end of March? (Let’s be honest – I’ll be walking most of it after about 12 minutes of a half-hearted jog.)

You can also use this link to find out more about all that they do and the fine students KLM has already helped. If just ten of you fine folks donate $10, I’m covered. You’re all the best!

We’ll resume the story of my holiday travels shortly …

      Please, make some cookies. If you think they’ll keep for a couple weeks, you can send me some, too! How are you? What’s new in Phoenix?
