I recently attended a *cough* 30th reunion. And it was great seeing so many familiar faces and chatting.
A former classmate of mine offered the obligatory “you haven’t changed since high school.”
I smiled graciously.
Then he tilted his head and, with furrowed scrutiny, said, “No. You REALLY haven’t changed since high school. It’s almost like you’re a vampire.”
We both exchanged nervous laughs. I’m thinking this might be the sweetest compliment/accusation I’ve ever heard.
Until I remembered what I looked like in high school.
Teenage me in 3 words: complete walking disaster.
If I were a vampire, I’d be the most awkward, near-sighted immortal to ever roam the earth.

It’s Blueberry Festival time in my corner of the world. Fried foods… craft booths galore… entertainers… more food… fireworks…the Blueberry Stomp race…parade…and the legendary blueberry donuts.
This hermit usually observes the crowd of thousands from a safe distance. But there have been occasions when the nostalgic appeal of an elephant ear (fried dough brushed with butter and sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar) has lured me into the throng. We’ll see what happens this year…
In the meantime, we’re all keeping an eye on Dorian and sending prayers to family, friends, and everyone in its path.
Wishing each of you a happy, healthy, and safe weekend.
