mooring right before I woke up, I had such a cool dream.
this dream I sat up in bed and turned on the TV and naturally not being able to
find anything to watch I started flipping through the channels. Finally, I stopped
and watched what was on and even though it looked different I recognized it. IT
as I said it looked different but somehow, I just knew it was Pinwheel; I’m not
sure if it was the 1977 version or a completely updated show but it was definitely
Pinwheel and I'm pretty sure that Aurelia was in the part I saw. Actually I'm very sure otherwise how would I have known it was Pinwheel.
in the dream I grabbed the phone and called my Mother and said, “Put it on 285
and tell me what you see.” So, she turned on her TV and went to that channel
and said okay this is what I see, and it was the same picture I was seeing and
I told her that it was Pinwheel. Then I woke up, but I wanted to blog this dream
so that I wouldn’t forget it and I thought you guys might think it was pretty
It is with the deepest of
sorrows, and many tears, that I bring you this news.
As you all know I filled out a
grant application with the Economic Development Corporation (EDC) to try to
gain funding for our Nickelodeon Fan Convention but last week I received a
letter telling me that my application was rejected. The letter reads as follows:

The Altus/Southwest Area
Economic Development Corporation Tourism Committee met on June 5, 2019 to
review the Fiscal Year 2019-2020 Tourism Requests. Your request for the
Nickelodeon Fan Convention (Nick Fan Con) was discussed and considered however
there was now enough information to support the event and the details have not been
fully worked out.
The committee agree they would
have considered it further had the event been a little more organized and if
you had acquired addition al outside funding. It certainly looks to be an
interesting program and perhaps the event can still be realized should you
obtain further funding and backing for your budget.
If you can work out the necessary
details needed, perhaps the committee can reconsider another request at a later
date for at least partial funding of the event. We appreciate the work you put
into this project and your efforts to bring this event to our community. Please
stay in contact should you firm up the details of your program.

So, there you have it. I’m
so, so sorry everyone, I feel like I’ve let all of you down and there’s nothing
I can do to make it better. I’m practically home bound these days because of my
arthritis, and I don’t have any contacts who can help me sponsor this, I just
don’t now what to do. ☹ But ya know, at the
very least they could have approved the Pinwheel Live but they didn’t even make
that an option. And frankly, by the questions they asked me I don’t think they
were convinced that these stars, Marty Schiff, Craig & Olga Marin and
George James, were willing to come all the way down here to Altus just to do
this convention. Anyway, please forgive me for getting your hopes up again, I
really did try. ☹
If you’d like to call the EDC
and complain please feel free.
