This Title is Irrelevant to this Post

Last night I went to the Delta Chamber of Commerce to have a brief interview with the panel who will be choosing the Volunteer of the Year for the Hats Off to Excellence Awards. It was a nice little sit-down, we had a chat about various things, and it was all very comfortable.

We spoke about my being on the Delta Hospice Vigil Team, and what it’s like to sit with someone as their body prepares itself to leave this current world.

We talked about my Kilimanjaro climb, and why I’m doing it.

We talked about some of the risks involved in my doing this climb.

We talked about how much I really, really enjoy camping.

All in all it was a nice interview, and I hope I got across to them what my real goals and intentions are around this most amazing of adventures. They interviewed a whole boatload of people, and will now narrow the field down to three nominees.  Those three nominees will then be invited to attend a gala dinner in November – what an EXCELLENT excuse to buy new shoes!

However, they will be contacting those nominees in three weeks’ time. Right when I’ll be standing atop the World’s Highest Free-Standing, Snow-Covered, Equatorial Mountain.

And I’ll be singing.

Good luck to all the nominees! I’m thrilled to be in such fine, fine company.  xo


Climb Ev’ry Octave…

My wonderful friend Kat has made me a wonderful offer…

She will be happy to donate TWO THOUSAND DOLLARS to the Delta Hospice Society in honour of my Kilimanjaro climb… provided I bring her a video of me singing the ENTIRE song ‘Climb Ev’ry Mountain‘ from the movie The Sound of Music at the summit.

For those of you that have actually heard me sing, you will know just how horrifying this idea truly is.

What’s even more horrifying is the fact that I’m actually considering it.
