Jack’s Lunch Sack was empty

After watching Jack leave his brown paper lunch bag on his lap, unopened, a caring teacher takes him aside to coax him to eat. She opens his lunch bag. She is horrified to see what’s inside.


A crumpled ball of newspaper.

Jack had put it in the bag to make it look like there was food inside.

Today in Nebraska and western Iowa nearly 84,000 children struggle with hunger. That’s one out of every five children in our communities. That’s why Food Bank for the Heartland is asking for your urgent help today. Please give your most generous gift.

For every $25 donation, we can provide enough food for 75 meals for children and families in need. On behalf of the children in Nebraska and western Iowa, thank you.

Thank you for caring,
Susan E. Ogborn

What to Do

Good Morning & Happy FNP,

What shall I do today?

Today is Friday 08/09/V3.4 & we are just 10 months away from my Birthday.

Well I went to an unnamed restaurant for breakfast. Then I went to the bank. I didn’t get any money. Apparently they need some form of identification, for the record you don’t need you operators license to drive a car. You only need to have one authorized & valid.

I was then going to go to target & get me some supplies. So the moral of the story. When you don’t have to do anything. don’t!

I will retry it again later today, I’ve got a feeling that it will be a nap time. I’m going to do it my way though, not anyone else’s way.

The word of the day is finagle which is to trick, swindle, or cheat.

I’m watching The Morning Blend right now. Mary & Mike are talking about City Sprouts. Visit Omaha Sprouts for more information.

There are IV movies opening this weekend, I won’t be seeing any of them.. IF someone where to call me and ask me if I wanted to go see a movie, I could do Percy Jackson, but that someone would have to be special.

We are over 200 words, I think we have shared enough.

Quotes from the World for Friday 08/09/MMXIII

In the life of the human spirit, words are action, much more so than many of us may realize who live in countries where freedom of expression is taken for granted. The leaders of totalitarian nations understand this very well. The proof is that words are precisely the action for which dissidents in those countries are being persecuted.
