Who are the people in your neighborhood? In your neighborhood! In your neigh–bor–hoo-ood! Who are the people in your neighborhood!They’re the people that you meet! When you’re walking down the street!They’re the people that you meeeet! Eeeeach! Daaaay!
10 points if you can name the kiddie show this song comes from. 10 points to me if I actually got the lyrics right.
And wait a minute… here’s a link to a youtube video if you want to cheat.
And is it just me, or does Bob remind anyone else of Max Lucado?
Speaking of Bob, I’d like you to meet Ron. He works at our local post office and most surely does NOT read my blog, but hi anyway, Ron! Ron is used to Gabe and me coming in with armloads of books to mail. (Well, sometimes it’s just one, but today was definitely armloads!)
Funny story. Gabe will go to the post office by himself and chat with Ron. I go to the post office with Nina and chat with Ron. This has been going on for months and months (actually, a couple of years). Just a few weeks ago, Gabe stopped into the P.O. with Nina. He said Ron looked at him, looked at Nina, looked back up at Gabe and put two and two together. The guy who’s always bringing books? And the gal and little girl who are always bringing books? They’re together.
I thought that was funny.
Here’s Ron on Friday afternoon with lots and lots of Blushing Bride books heading all over the place–Florida, Louisiana, New Jersey, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Indiana, Ohio, Canada…
I’ve got plenty more where those came from, so I’m going to keep the Free (+shipping) Book Offer open for a couple more days. If you want an envelope of 4 books, it’s $5. If you want a box of 17 (I know I said 14, but I realized I can actually fit 17 in there–woohoo!), it’s $15. You can go here and click to donate $5 or $15. If you live outside the U.S., give me a shout, and we’ll work something out. If you’d rather send a check, let me know, and I’ll get you my address.
We’ll chat more about the Money for Missions next week. I have a beautiful apron donated by my lovely sister Bethany to sell. And of course the necklaces from lovely Stephanie. And a couple boas in the works.
Oh, and ha ha ha ha! to your in-law comments. There’s DEFINITELY some book-worthy material there.
Have a great weekend, friends!
