pardon the pause

Looking for more stories from Joolee’s Forty? Didn’t find a new story today? (It’s true: we had a brief hiatus this week to accumulate material and give the web administrator and his lovely girlfriend (Joolee) time to prepare for their trip to Europe.)

Come back on Saturday, March 31 when we begin the final stretch to Joolee’s birthday with the final ten stories from some of the big names in Joolee’s world. That’s right, Joolee’s Forty is no longer accepting contributors (for now). But you’ve still got time to send Joolee a wish on the Wishes page before her birthday. Meanwhile enjoy the final ten!

forty days. forty stories.

Joolee turns forty on April 9. After working in six or seven states and at least five countries, not to mention traveling over forty countries on all seven continents from the South Pole to the Slovakia, Juniata to Johannesburg, Joolee has a lot of friends. Remarkably, in all that wayfaring, it’s her special talent to keep those friendships strong. But that means bringing the whole lot of us together for a birthday party isn’t very practical.

You’re invited to help celebrate her birthday with a web-based project called joolee’s forty. On each of the forty days leading up to her fortieth birthday, we’ll post a new story about Joolee. We hope to assemble a cross-section of the best tales from all her stints and adventures, written by family, friends, and fellow-travellers. Forty days. Forty stories.
