Okay people, I’m back. Sort of. Today was my first voyage from the comforts of OJ’s house (my usual Vancouver abode), in particular, peeling myself out of my couch-bed. The reason? Caroline and I took Richard to get his haircut. There was no freaking way he was going to attend any event to celebrate Joey’s life with a haircut (or lack thereof) that made him look like a mad scientist. So off we went. I’ll tell you, the man looks sharp now! Could almost get a military discount at a hotel.
So, on to the details. A gathering will be held for Joey on Wednesday, March 2nd, at 3:00 in Powell River at the Carlson Club (the old Moose Hall). It will be very informal, as per what he wanted. We plan on having a slideshow running in the background (not a “have to sit down and watch” type slideshow; more a mingle and see if you catch what’s going on…we have a lot of pictures. Thank you Darren and Dallas for taking on this formidable task). Pretty much the only other plan at this point is to start thinking of your funny stories/stuff you want to say about Joey, as there will be an open mike for people to talk about him if they wish.
I also wanted to thank everyone for the thoughtful comments, emails, and for checking their status or registering to be an organ donor. (If you have not done so yet, please grab your care card number and check your registration status at: www.transplant.bc.ca ).
See you Wednesday.
