RVChat - February 2008
by Lori Norris
Happy Leap Year. I still don’t see why we can’t add the extra day to a summer month. We really don’t need an extra day in February, it just seems to make winter a bit longer. I know it’s all in my mind, but what can I say. I don’t think we need an extra day during the snowiest month. I’m anti-snow this month. Ron is away and it snowed yesterday. I actually had to shovel snow which I haven’t done that in years. My son used to do it and now Ron does. And if there’s too much snow, I just wouldnt take the car out. It works for me because I live on the bus line.
February is the month of romance. We celebrate Valentine’s Day. Of course, Valentine goods have been in some stores since the day after Christmas. Are their any holidays or special days that remain simple? It seems as if one holiday is over and the stores start pushing the next one. As well as celebrating Valentine’s Day, in our world Ron and I also celebrate our anniversary in February. Doesn’t seem like it has been seven years already.
Ron and I met and dated around Mensa events. While Mensa is not a singles group, I know of many couples that met through the group. Some of them were not even actively seeking a “significant other.” Among our personal friends I can quickly think of at least a couple dozen couples that met through Mensa. It just goes to show that when you’re among friends anything can happen. To all you Mensa couples, send me your love story and pictures. If you’re willing to share I’ll have them put up on the regional website.
February has two wonderful RGs. The NH Granite Gathering “Celebr8 ‘08” will be held the weekend of February 15 – 17, 2008 at the Radisson in Nashua. NH throws a great party. Check out http://www.nh.us.mensa.org/forms/2008NHRGReg.pdf for a registration form and additional information. We’re going to be celebrating the whole year in one weekend. Central New Jersey Mensa (Region 2) is hosting “Snowball XXXIV” with the theme of “Around the World in Two Days” the weekend of February 29 through March 2. Ron and I will be there. This RG is easily accessible by train. Check out their website for more information, http://www.cnj.us.mensa.org/.
Don’t forget, the Region 1 LDW hosted by Rhode Island Mensa will be held the first weekend of May. Check out the webpage at http://www.rhodeisland.us.mensa.org. Feel free to contact me for more information.
