It's time for a Show Me Thursday post for the Sassy Cheryl's Blog. I'm even early enough that you have time to get in two entries within the next two weeks.
My job since retirement is making cards for Operation Write Home. In late May, knowing that MM(MonkeyMoo my grandson) was coming for the month of June, I decided to do an Operation Write Home Card Drive at Walmart. It took 3 weeks to find the right person to talk to to get approval. You KNOW me, the dog with the bone. I wasn't giving up until they said yes. In those 3 weeks and with some help from friends, I got 176 Any Hero cards made.
MM loves to dress up and has costumes for most occasions. I called his Mom before he and his Dad left coming for their visit and told her to pack his Uncle Sam Costume.
Two days this week the temps were still 95 at 5 p.m., so you can imagine my worries about weather conditions for the card drive. Fortunately God took me into consideration, and the temp only got up to 85 by the time we left and with the shade of the umbrella and a great breeze I made out fine. Uncle Sam, aka MM, was in nylon with a t-shirt, long coat, beard and felt hat in the sun. He is truly a trooper, as he didn't complain the first time. He was also a great salesman on getting folks to come and sign.
We have 70 Any Hero cards ready to mail. I'll be doing my usual sign for your supper card drive at our annual Around about the 4th Shrimp Boil on July 6th and hopefully the 100 more Any Hero cards I have made will get a thank you note written in them.
Thanks for stopping by. Now I think I'm going to stay in and stay cool this afternoon.
