This Friday and Saturday, I am hosting a garage sale to raise money for the American Diabetes Association. I will also have The Crazy Elephant and Michelle Morgan Original Art present and 10% of those sales will still go toward our ADA fundraising. If you are in the Stewartville, MN area on those days, you will find us on hwy 30 near St. John's and we will be open from (roughly) 8am - 5pm both days. In the meantime, check out the picks for a small sampling of what we will have. 10% of our online purchases are still going toward our ADA fundraising through the 14th so there is still time to make an order. Also you can make a tax deductible donation on their site here, http://main.diabetes.org/site/TR/TourdeCure/MinnesotaArea?px=6679453&pg=personal&fr_id=7583
The Cat Returns is one of my favorite animated films. The end song, Kaze Ni Naru, is one of my favorite parts and gave me the longing to play the ukulele. I found just the uke for me here in Montreal. It is part musical instrument and part souvenir of Quebec. I am not terribly good at it yet, but I am starting to get this song down. Once I have it figured out, I will either attempt to learn the words so I can sing along, or move on to another great song. In the meantime, here is a great cover of the song by someone who has been playing a lot longer than I have.
