OK I have to admit that I was glad to be tagged on Facebook in this photo rather than the one I posted earlier - It's my Peter Maxx early 70's look. Unfortunately you can't see my bouffant because it blends in with the background and my silver shoes are under the table!
Tim looked fabulous, with his gold chain and powder blue pants. We had a hard time deciding big curly hair or slicked down with the geek curl on the end which one out after I spent a bunch of time online looking at hair styles.
We were at Eli's school auction and I only wish I had a camera because the iphone didn't work well (did I really just say that...yep it's the only thing I can think of I don't like - poor photos).
It was great to see every one rally at the auction and Eli's library which was the special cause was funded! I have to admit that it's heart breaking to see all of the schools struggling to pay people that either work part time and / or for low pay and the disparity of what's happening in our country.
As my friend Terri from grad school said on her post...
I wholeheartedly agree. Every month when I write a check (for a public school) so that our son has more than just the basics at school - the parents help fund the music teacher, the bus to take the kids on a field trip, for the field trip, other students that can't pay, etc. Plus we give to events they do throughout the year to raise money from walk-a-thons, annual appeal and the school auction to name some - I'll remember her words and say a prayer that some day (hopefully soon) some currently greedy eyed bastard shifts and realizes that it ISN"T all about them rather the world is a bigger place and they CAN make a difference just like the parents are doing with each check they write. It's about coming from love and there being enough for all. Until them maybe I'll keep wearing my Peter Maxx outfit so I can remember love is...
Why doesn't each banker / finance guy that gets a multi-million dollar quarterly bonus then donate a measly one million EACH to local school districts so they don't have to lay off hundreds of teachers. That would give them a gold star. Financial institutions are more than 60% of our GDP and they generate nothing but ...profit for themselves. Why don't you give something back.
