Is anyone else out there feeling overwhelmed? I know I am. Maybe it’s the Michael Jackson coverage or the Town Hall meeting coverage. It might be the “school supply list from you know where” that we got this year. Any one of those things would have a weak person reaching for the Prozac. But that isn’t what has me overwhelmed.
I never anticipated so much participation in a giveaway. I mean I am really impressed. Bloggers are the best!!!. My website visitor count went up by a factor of 10 and so did my blog visits. It looks like I need to get some really special items to put in that box. I may also have to get a really big hat to put all the names in but that is ok, I will do it. And it’s not too late to sign up or visit my website to get in the running. You may just find a riveting article on collecting rainwater.
As for the items mentioned above:
Michael J? Come on, enough is enough, bury the man. (rumor has it that the reason for the delay is that he had so many chemicals in his body that they have to bury him in a toxic waste dump) I didn’t make that up. I actually heard it.
Town Hall Meetings? Whatever happened to parliamentary procedure? I haven’t seen that much controversy since they discussed cell phone towers at our town hall meeting. I watched some of the coverage last night and I really expected some politician to jump into a chorus of; ”Yes we got trouble, Right here in River City…….” (gotta love The Music Man)
School supply lists? I’m sorry. I am not going to supply every child in the county with paper and pencils. I really think the logging industry is somehow tied to the public school system. I will know for sure when they offer to pay us cash to throw away perfectly good school supplies. Just FYI, the other day on Craigslist, I saw where a retired school teacher was selling “extra school supplies” I’m not sure what to make of this.
And one last thing overwhelms me; “Firewood” Check out how much firewood my family chopped/split over the summer. It’s going to be a hot time in the old greenhouse this winter. :)
Thanks everyone for your support and have a great day,
