Are the Cool Things Planned When I'm Outta Town?

Obama's coming back to town and I won't be here! The Presidential hopeful is the Leon County Democratic Club's keynote speaker this Friday (Aug. 24) at the second annual Collins-Steele Dinner at the University Center Club. It's not that I can afford to attend but thought maybe I could stalk him a bit and get a glimpse of the man. Visit the Leon County Democratic Party site for more info.

Yesterday at the gym (Women's World) I saw a sign for the Tallahassee Boomers and Seniors Expo featuring Suzanne Somers and Oprah's man Stedman Graham this Saturday (Aug. 25). Okay, maybe I'm showing my age (I'm by far a Boomer or Senior - not that there's anything wrong with that), but I remember Somers as the ditsy Chrissy on "Three's Company" and purchased a Thigh Master when it first came out (my sister is getting some good use out of it).

Anyway, the expo looks really cool and I'm outta town for a family affair. I checked the site out today and looks like it's been postponed - not because I won't be here - but due to "unforeseen circumstances." Hope I'll be in town for the rescheduled date.

Where can I get one of those "Keep it Sassy Tallahassee" t's? At Lake Ella or the Downtown Saturday Market? I saw a gal wearing one on a flight last week. I need to look into that. I have way too many t-shirts but always have room for a groovy one. "Keep it Sassy Tallahassee" is the initiative to encourage shopping locally and if you haven't noticed, there are great boutiques, markets and shops here in town.

And, I finally got my butt into the Tallahassee Area Visitor Information Center (located at 106 East Jefferson Street, Downtown) last week (be warned, parking in front of the center sucks and but if you're not lucky to grab one of the sweet spots, ample parking is nearby). Great resource if friends and family are coming to visit and need some ideas on what to do. They also have a nice selection of Tallahassee souvenirs, but no "Keep it Sassy Tallahassee" t's.

The Rice-Carrier - Welcome and thanks for stopping by.

I did pick one up a couple of weeks ago and was really hopeful I'd be one of the most in, "one-size-fits-most." My girls are just a bit bigger than most, I suppose. It's a great wear-around-the-house-T and supporting a great cause.
