And we all know I mean B-Z! This woman is tireless, and has been volunteering for some sort of civic endeavor for as long as I can remember (I think it all started when we got to ride in the Bothell 4th of July parade and throw candy). Good thing she does, it saves the rest of the family from having to get off our keisters.
This weekend, the B was "Shuttle Bus Chairman" for the Bothell Art Fair. Sounds like a pretty painless, no-brainer kind of job right? Just line up a shuttle bus service, post some signs and dunzo. NO. Not in good ole Bothell, where everyone has a 'good idea'! Poor B got herself a nemesis, some do-gooder idiot who not only complained to every person attending the fair (I swear) about how bad the signs were placed and how literally every possible route into Bothell should have had signs, she MOVED one of the signs, breaking it in the process, then complained that "there is no sign" in that spot!
Saint B-Z didn't do what I would've done (staple her to a stake and slap a directional arrow over the woman's big fat piehole), she moved signs around, repaired the broken sign, listened politely and kept a smile on her face. Volunteer of the Year!!!! Hopefully next year, she'll be smart and head to the cabin on art fair weekend.
The fair itself was charming, small but with excellent artists and in lovely surroundings at the Park at Bothell Landing. I meandered through the museum and old schoolhouse there, and had a grand time.
