This, that and another thing

Today I learned that Pearlington, Mississippi will be featured on Anderson Cooper 360 on CNN tomorrow, Thursday the 26th (7pm CA time). Tom D. with Mountains to Mississippi spent time last week giving a tour of Pearlington to Soledad O'Brien. I'm setting my VCR (yes, so old school) and anxious to see what they say and what places they highlight! Tune in yourselves to get a look at the town that has made such an impact in my life. Wonder if the yellow house will be highlighted. Hmmmm...

In other Pearlington related news, I've been talking with Tom and Ben about going back in December. Nothing has been decided officially. The work has slowed down tremendously, but there's still the matter of a ramp that needs to be finished. *Sigh*

On to something completely different. Train Guy started school this week. Wednesdays he will be taking the bus to the church, hanging out with me for a couple of hours and then going to Snack Time, our kids program. Today we met with a couple of Young Adults at the local Taqueria at lunch. Train Guy has a tendency to be a little shy at times, so it took a while to warm up to the Young Adults. At one point, though, Z leaned over and whispered to Train Guy. I heard what they were saying, but pretended like I didn't and said "Hey, what are you guys whispering about." Train Guy looked at me, smiled and said "Secrets." Yep, he's old enough for school.

hi Brittany,
It's Chelsea Leufroy from The Jefferson Awards Conference in Washington, DC. My school is trying to make a service day down to Pearlington, and we could use your help... Also my parents are starting to rebuild the house down there and we could use some help with that as well... So if you could please get back to me as soon as possible. You can email me at Thanks so much!!!!!
