We lucked out and was able to start setting up the vendor space on Friday.
I was kind of hoping that I would have Friday free so that I could go back to my youth. As a child I lived on Blue Sage Trail in Florissant, MO. I went to a small grade school that was within walking distance from the house, called Black Jack Elem. My best friend lived across the street, and her name was Falicia Jones. I think of her often. Last year at HiBearnation I took the afternoon and went looking for my past. I drove around for hours and never did find Blue Sage Trail. I guess a map would have helped, but I am stuburn that way. I did look in a phone book for Falicia and there was only one. I call and left a voice mail. I never heard back. I guess this is somthing I should get used to. I have made so many friends in my life. I have had a very rich life. But how can I expect all those friend to not go on with there lives since I have very much moved on with mine. I guess time marches on and you really can never go back.
But this year I did not even try to look. I may try again next year.
