IT SEEMS SINCE NEW ENGLAND DECIDED IT REALY WAS SPRING, THAT MANY PEOPLE HAVE SEEN OUR WEB AND DECIDED TO COME VOLUNTEER IN THE FRESH AIR AND SUNSHINE....-- AND WE LOVE IT-- MAKE NO MISTAKE...WE ARE DEPENDENT ON CHICKEN BRICKS AND VOLUNTEERS.. NOT ONE DOUBT.
PEOPLE COMING HERE NOTICE WHAT WONDERFUL VOLUNTEERS AND STAFF WE HAVE-- NO DOUBT ABOUT IT. HOW DO WE GET SUCH WONDERFUL HELP??? SIMPLE...VOLUNTEERING AROUND HERE SOUNDS LIKE WALKING AROUNF WILLOWDALE STATE FOREST WITH A PERFECTLY BEHAVED GREAT DANE -- AND SOMETIMES IT IS--
HOWEVER THERE IS A GROUP OF PEOPLE WHO REALIZE THAT ALL THOSE POO PICKERS MUST BE USED FOR SOMETHING AND IF THEY JUST PICK THEM UP AND START USING THEM- THEY GET THE HIGHEST RATING... THERE IS AN ACCEPTABLE SUB GROUP WHO HAVE NEVER CONSIDERED THE PRODUCTION AND DISPOSAL OF THE QUANTITY OF POO PRODUCED HERE. AND QUICKLY SEE THE COMPLICATIONS OF ANY LAXITY IN TEH SYSTEM SO THEY PITCH RIGHT IN...
*****AND THEN WE HAVE THE "OOOOOOOOOOOEEEEEEEE" BUNCH-- I EVEN HAD ONE PERSON SAY TO ME "I WILL DO ANYTHING AROUND HERE EXCEPT PICK UP POOP"
AT WHICH TIME I SAID "THEN YOU WON'T DO ANYTHING AROUND HERE. " SIMPLE
THOSE PEOPLE JUST GET ELIMINATED-- AND WE ARE LEFT WITH A WONDERUL COLLECTION OF DOWN TO EARTH ( LITERALLY) VOLUNTEERS.... AND THE PLACE IS AS SPOTLESS AS IT COULD BE....AND FUN .
HOW DID I GET ON THAT TOPIC? IT WAS MR RENZI..? PRIME MINISTER OF ITALY? ON CNN AT 4AM INTERVIEWED BY CHRISTIANA AMPOUR-- WHEN HE SAID EUROPE HAS TO BE LIKE A FAMILY , YOU HAVE TO TAKE THE BAD WITH THE GOOD, AND CAN NOT PICK AND CHOOSE THE FACETS OF THE EU THAT YOU WANT....INTERESTING ... HE WAS VERY INTERESTING AS HE LABORED THRU WHAT WAS NOT HIS NATIVE LANGUAGE. ---HE HAD PROFOUND THOUGHTS ON THE DIFFERENT OPINIONS OF DIFFERENT AGE GROUPS AND HOW THE YOUNGER GROUP HAS TO LEARN TO DEAL WITH TEH E CARDS WITH WHICH THEY ARE DEALT. .. LIKE TOO MANY PEOPLE... SOMEWHERE I HEARD HE WAS 42 YEARS OLD.
I THOUGHT MAYBE I SHOULD START A WRITE IN CAMPAIGN FOR TEH PRESIDENT OF THE US .... EXCEPT I AM NOT SURE THAT WAS HIS NAME...
ANNE'S HUSBAND MIKE PUT THIS BRITISH/EU BIT VERY WELL..." BRITS ARE LIKE THE DOG WHO CHASES THE CAR AND CATCHES IT... THEN WHAT DOES HE DO?" PERFECT DESCRIPTION...
DAWN AND HER "KIDS SAY THE DARN-EST THINGS"
When I got home from professional teacher development today at 4:30 I checked my email and saw a High Importance letter from my kids. I was expecting something about the new puppies. Maybe concerns that they had.
Evidently they were watching mail call today and heard you say, "Now I can have ketchup on my hamburger." They were concerned. They said, "Everyone has the right to have ketchup on their hamburgers, so why is Carlene being denied her right?" They said, "We need to get some ketchup and send it to Carlene. A hamburger is incomplete with out ketchup." I had no idea while reading the email where they got this. Didn't know they were watching Mail Call at the Boys and Girls Club. I posted on chat my question, "what are my kids talking about." CPs quickly responded that when you opened the envelope with the 50K check inside, you said, "No I can put ketchup on my hamburger. Mt response was, "Oh my goodness, I hope the kids don't hit up all the McDonalds in the neighborhood to stock pile ketchup."
So tomorrows lesson at Summer School will be on figurative language!
Just thought I would share how the kids really listen and hang on your every word. Keep up the amazing work that you do.
