After last Tuesday’s disastrous attempt to walk Nanuq between work and suppertime I realized that I really would need help in order to survive the two weeks without Michael. And the help came, sometimes from unexpected places. My neighbour Heather took Nanuq out with her dog Kodiak on Wednesday. Tim took him on Thursday (and again yesterday). Hugh and Anissa walked down from their neighbourhood to take on the Friday walk. I got a suprise e-mail from Carole (Yukon Chatterbug) on the weekend, offering to take Nanuq out with her dog if we happened to live close by (which we do). Thanks so much to all of you! Nanuq and I are both very grateful.
Speaking of help and surprises, I was reading through my blog stats last week and came across a referring site that included my name in it. Curious, I clicked on it and was brought to a page that included my most recent post ("The green, green grass of home") and a couple of pictures of Jade from the Halloween photo album. It also said "Copyright Fawnahareo 2007" at the bottom of the page. Of course, I hadn’t created the page, so you might understand that I felt as though I had temporarily stepped into the Twilight Zone.
As I was trying to figure things out, I got an e-mail from George (who plays a mean bass in The Big Band) saying he’d killed a few minutes by throwing together a page for me to play around with, since he knew I was looking for a new bloggy home. Wow, what a nice thing to do! Big Band rehearsals consist of a lot of practicing and not much chatting, so I don’t actually know anyone in the group that well. But now I know someone I can refer people to for web hosting and design services. Thanks, George!
And now while we’re on the subject of moving blogs, I’m just about ready to move house over to WordPress (although I wish I could take George’s photo album module over with me, since it looks like I’ll now have to start using Flickr for photo sharing). I think I’ve got the mashed-together-paragraphs thing figured out. I hope to be seeing more comments once I’ve moved over — I know I’ve got a few lurkers, and this is SO all about you, you know.
