A Day in the Life – Monday

🎶 The buzzard took the monkey for a ride in the air

The monkey thought that ev’rything was on the square

The buzzard tried to throw the monkey off his back

The monkey grabbed his neck and said, “Now, listen, Jack

Straighten up and fly right, straighten up and fly right

Straighten up and fly right, cool down papa, don’t you blow your top 🎶

This morning’s assembly was dark from the rain outside.

My first meeting was with GG Owens at JE Dunn Construction downtown.

Ms GG has helped thousands of people obtain employment in Kansas City. She’s currently serving our Job Corps Center as the Chair for the Workforce Development Council.

Had the pleasure of meeting these folks from England. They are working with Ms GG on a project supporting a school in Nigeria. They had pictures giving the children pencils to write with and working with children who were blind.

You never know what God has in store for you each day.

Since I was three blocks from my brother’s business and had fifteen minutes, I swung by to say hi. I worked for Joe once for a year and I’m still not exactly sure what he does.

This afternoon I had a meeting at the Clay County Courthouse presenting the MU Extension budget to the commissioners. As the appointed representative for Excelsior Springs, I’m honored to also be serving as the council’s Chair.

My friend Vern told me that the artist of this mural waited to paint all the faces on the characters. He then went around the county taking pictures of people and then drew their likeness into the mural to finish the characters. Isn’t that cool? I think that’s way fun!

It rained off and on all day. We have needed it. Loving these white blossoms outside my office window.

Ready to roll!

Proud that Mackenzie has really been dedicated to roller derby. It’s a challenge for her, but she’s up to it!

Winding down

This is a big week for me. Pray I get through Wednesday, please!
