High priced items, kids really shouldn't be going door to door any longer, relatives and parents feel pressured to buy; just so many reasons it is not a good idea any longer. A school festival would be much more pleasing to families.

My grand daughter already has come home with two fund raisers you are expected to purchase things from. Most are sweets, frozen cookie dough that costs between $16 and $18 dollars to make 3 dozen cookies! Then you have the sugar issue for lots of people.

We Welcome Strays

When I was young we used to go "skinny dipping"; now we just "chunky dunk"

“The value of doing something does not lie in the ease or difficulty, the probability or improbability of its achievement, but in the vision, the plan, the determination and the perseverance, the effort and the struggle which go into the project. Life is enriched by aspiration and effort, rather than by acquisition and accumulation.”

― Helen Nearing, The Good Life
