Farewell Jeannette!

This week we said farewell to Jeannette Popp, one our longest tenured Boomerites, as she heads into a well-earned retirement.

We may no longer call Jeannette a colleague, but she will always be family.  Thank you for your dedication to us and the musical community of Northern Colorado.

Excerpted from “An All-Star Perfect Day” on The Podcasting Store’s Medium page (link below)

“…Field of Dreams sums up how I felt when Timothy asked to go to the All-Star Game.  “You know we just don’t recognize the most significant moments of our lives while they’re happening,” Burt Lancaster’s Archie Graham says in the movie. “Back then I thought, well, there’ll be other days. I didn’t realize that that was the only day.”

Baseball more than any other sport is steeped in history.  The love of the game is passed down from one generation to the next and even those of us who will never play professionally become a part of that history. I kept thinking about the All-Star Game and how I have always wanted to go to a major sporting event.  When will I ever have the chance to do something like this again so close to home, when my son is engaged with baseball so completely?  On a whim I checked the Rockies web site to see if by chance any tickets were left for the All-Star Game.  I searched the site waiting for the inevitable bad news.  I knew when I saw that they were unavailable I would be able to move on and accept that this moment was not *the* moment.

To my surprise there were some tickets left!  Only a couple dozen in the whole stadium, and not choice seats, but they were there for the taking.  I just needed to decide that this was the day.  Or instead would I take the chance that there would be another opportunity to make a once in a lifetime memory when Timothy was 28?  The window to purchase the remaining tickets was closing with each passing second.

If I have learned anything over the last year or so it is that no one is promised anything, least of all time, and to appreciate the memories I have collected over the years.  Physical things are great, but they can only do so much.  Memories are magic, they allow us to visit the past whenever we choose, to travel back to a time and place and find meaning we never knew was there when it was happening…”
