Spirit of Grace O'Malley krewe shines in Afghanistan

Being stationed in Afghanistan will bring an end to Lori Moxley's four-year participation in Tampa's Walk for the Cure.

However, Moxley delivered a love note to let her fellow members of Ye Loyal Krewe of Grace O'Malley know she will be with them in spirit Oct. 22 when they distribute beads and support at the walk. She e-mailed a photo of her and 13 other women stationed in Afghanistan, each wearing pink shirts and combat fatigue pants.

Anticipation mounts in the days leading up to any party, but it's sweet anticipation when you know the party will be a blast.

Such is the case with Thursday's Swanky Soiree at One Progress Plaza in downtown St. Petersburg. It promises great food, great fashion — including models Ginger Gadsden and Holley Sinn from WTSP-Ch. 10 — and great entertainment. And it all benefits Brookwood, a group home for girls who have been victims of abuse or neglect. Go to swankysoiree.org for tickets. ...

Seen on a T-Shirt: Give Blood, Play Hockey. …

If the buzz at the Lightning's first training camp practice at the Brandon Ice Sports Forum proves to be a good indicator, the team will enjoy super support this season. Deservedly so. …

Mylez Edward professes to love flowers, entertainment style and spectacle. Maybe that explains why his X Floral Salon grand opening will feature a ribbon large enough to wrap around 3,000 square feet at 2602 W Azeele St. in Tampa. Check it out Tuesday at 5:30 p.m. …

I'll always love college football Saturdays, unless ESPN and super conferences ruin them.

That's all I'm saying.
