Our Mother Reminds Us To Clean Our Plates.  And Attend A Meeting:

“Can you please remind the Team 12.4 graduates (via the VardoGram) that this Tuesday night at 7:30pm will be the Team 12.4 Informational Meeting in the City Hall lunchroom. Team 12.4 shirts are appreciated, but not necessary.  Many thanks.”    The Vardo

Speaking of Team 12.4 Graduates . . .

A message (and request) from the Mayor of Northeast Story City: 

“Well, I did it.  I signed up for the Team 12.4 class again and I plan to start some running to get ready for it real soon.  Maybe tomorrow or the next day.  Or maybe the day after that.  Or maybe when it warms up and the ice goes away and I lose 10 pounds so that I can walk up a flight of stairs without being winded.  I think I have to start all over again so that someday I can keep up with you (Editor’s Note – this would be gjk, and this will not be a problem) and Bill (Editor’s Note – this would be Bill , not the Other Bill) again.  I have hopes anyway. I think I am supposed to be route master on Saturday the 15th (or whenever) but I won’t be able to make it that day.  Can you put out an announcement that I need someone to take over for me that day?  I would appreciate it.

"What did you call it?"   . . . "It's a frickin' Elephant, Sister Goodman!  It says so on the picture!"  And so it does ...  "A f r i c a n   Elephant "
