Report Card

This is the front and back of my 7th grade report card ~ signed by my dad (reluctantly every time, I might add) and Ethel Griffing, who was my 7th & 8th grade teacher. Her husband, Leo Griffing, was the school principle.

What? I never said I was the sharpest tool in the shed!! LOL The irony here is that I graduated from Washburn University cum laude, earning 2 degrees in 4 years & making the Dean's List every semester. I guess you CAN teach an old dog new tricks, eh?

Oh, Chez. I reckon you were plenty sharp, but just had more interesting things to think about than school work.

I was bored outta my mind most of the time, myself. My middle school grades were mostly dismal -- and I ended up an honor grad in college, too.

Hey sweetie!

I got $14 to my name right now and I'm about to spend $10 of that on gas to go meet someone at the barn. Heh.

But by this time next week things should be considerably less tight. I have some money coming from small commissions & also a few days cash labor for a painting contractor this coming week.

Just had an email from potential mural client; answered that; crossing fingers. Got to run out the door now!
