Weekly Wrap Up (Jul. 4 - Jul. 10)



Well it is 1:15 AM in my neck of the woods. Why you ask, am I up so late? Well yesterday was the kick off of the Calgary Stampede :cowboy: This really the first big event to be held in Canada. Yesterday numbers were small, but today seemed like normal Saturday. I volunteer at the grounds so I felt good enough to try and do it again this year. If it helps the charities that have basically been shut down the past 16 months, than it is the least I can do :cowboy: 

Now, who cares about the Stampede? I do!!! But you are not here to read about it, you are waiting for a wrap up that you can see what you read, what you missed and what may have interested you. So let's give it a go!

Monday Cia strolled in after her 5 mile jog and gave us the July CSR featured story. Make sure you check it out as well as the discussion day later in the month:

On Wednesday, I'm not sure how he does it as he is always working the nightshift, but Aaron still found time to give us another great Ask An Author:

Friday, our prompt guru extraordinaire, Wayne, came up with another two great and original prompts. Shout out to comicfan for coming through week after week:

Also on Friday, we noticed that there is gremlins in our servers :o Who gave them water and who fed them after midnight? It is your fault :gikkle: Turns out that our July newsletter didn't make it out to all, so Myr posted a blog with it:


Myr was by each day with a new Word of the Day. I thought I had the first one and was excited as you wear dungarees to Stampede, but alas, it was not to be :( 

Dundrearies, Amative, Gloss, Watershed, Yegg, Prevaricate, and Fanfaronade


Goals, did I miss the goals last week? I can't remember :o Old age :(

Glad to see the Calgary Stampede back. They call it the greatest outdoor show on earth and that's probably right. I went there a few years ago and had a great time. Calgary rocks during the stampede and the city is bursting with cowboys. :cowboy:
