Dancing with the Stars and a Trip to Midland

Who's this handsome fellow? Give up? It's my dad, Jim Causey, cutting a rug with some sweet thing back in high school! In addition to donating his time once a week to rhubarb reign and maintaining our mailing list, Dad is a terrific dancer. So much so that his Zumba instructor asked him to be her partner in this year's Dancing with the Stars event. No, not the TV show, a fundraiser that benefits the Neighborhood Center, a community organization that helps needy families in our little town.



However, winners in this contest are not chosen for their dancing skills (which will be the rumba in my dad's case!) They are chosen by the amount of money they raise for charity. So if you're so inclined, please support Dad in this worthy cause. But hurry -- you have to vote before the weekend. And Dad, we're really proud of your involvement -- go get 'em!

In addition to cheering Dad on, we went down to Midland this weekend:




Funny how a little sun can make 25 degrees seem like a heatwave in January! Everyone was in a good mood when we got there, and the booth was almost empty -- yeah! We always appreciate that, especially this time of year.



Tomorrow, we'll start work getting ready for the next Dupage Expo Center show, which will be coming up this Saturday and Sunday in St. Charles, Illinois. January's Expo show was fabulous, so be sure to put this one on your weekend calendar! More details to follow. xo
