Chowder Bowl Clam Race.
She was still wearing it the following day.
And why not? These are hard to come by, and her clam ran an excellent six feet.
A few days before the clam race, Vivi and her family were on the lawn with me to howl for the wolves, listen for the owls, and check out the stars. And overhead, zipping along bright as any star, went the International Space Station. Of course we waved... Vivi has a hero, and he used to be up there on the ISS.
So, she named her clam to honour him. (it is important to have a twist to the names, to include something to do with the clams. We think Vivi was very inventive. )
Well done, both Commander Hadfield, and Vivian, for very different accomplishments that are linked in the oddest fashion.
