So now I've visited both Davy's Crockett's birthplace and where he died.
After the Alamo we had to behave ourselves and go to BU, which started that morning while we were sleeping . . . . I'm sure my rep will read this blog and know we played hooky . . . It was a nice little, and very needed!, mini vacation, even if it was only for a few hours.
BU is always made fun by all the people you see - friends, big names, famous people - classes you take, lectures you attend. It's always interesting to hear about the ways others do thing differently than you do and you always come away with some ideas to try once you get home.
We had dinners and lunches with good friends who we enjoy very much. Let me just say the Hayes family had us laughing for almost three hours one evening! Those lunches and dinners were full of family talk, business talk and just a good time. Sometimes I think I learn just as much at meal times as I do in classes.
I came home with class ideas, marketing ideas, event ideas, display ideas - my brain is hopping!
So what am I doing today? Working at the shop putting all these ideas into practice? No, I'm playing hooky and having a Nathan day. It's very much needed after the brain drain of BU. It lets all those ideas simmer around and percolate a bit more. The mind is much more relaxed and open to all kinds of ideas when rocking a baby, ok he's almost a toddler, how did that happen????, to sleep.
Stay tuned for what happens when all those ideas finish percolating!
Till next time.
