Getting Ready to Roll

Great googly moogly is it ever hard getting a brand new baby-type tour written and semi-memorized while taking care of a baby...especially one getting and recovering from cleft repair surgery (can I just stop for a moment and thank the Universe for supplying baby tyco and the Muppet Show on DVD? Thanks Universe. I owe you one.)
Strange but true, we're finally getting ready to start the Easy Rider stroller tour. Robert Mac (the power to be at Foot!) is doing the promotions. He's also working on a new Foot tour and hiring new guides to give it, and (hopefully) finally updating the website. If he does actually update it...this will be the first time since the 70s. Which is weird since we didn't even have The Internet in the 70s, but yet still....true.
I'm memorizing the script, fine tuning the route and tragically messing up my grand idea of laminating my pics. (don't ask) Also, I've decided that instead of walking alllll the way down to the damn thing; we'll just use the magic of pointing to look at the Zeum carousel. The ramp to get down to it is like something out of Raiders of the Lost Arc. Every time I walk it, I keep looking over my shoulder for the giant, rolling boulder. And if you trip the wrong wire, sharp sticks pop up...some of them with corpses still attached. Besides, you have to walk through the playground...might be too tempting for toddlers.
On the bright side, I've got my Easy Rider playlist pretty much done. I'll be posting it soon. Oh...and Snappy is way ahead of all of us. She has her butterfly toy, kicked off her socks and is ready to go.
