I do not believe the day will ever arrive that I will grow weary of a good story.
A good true story.
I know, you are thinking, "But of course, Valsy, you ARE an all-powerful media type...clearly illustrating it is difficult to see the difference between you and Mogal Ted Turner..."
I saw the news this morning before we left.
The dictionary says possessed is defined as having super-natural powers or madness. I think it could be a little of both.
Referencing back to Mel's comment today about no media covering the good we saw today, I am happy to do it.
Meet the head Bob the Builders for today: Larry and John. Both are super smart. Super talented. Super nice. Super compassionate. I would say they are "possessed" as well, but without the ratio of maddness that I have. These are some of my favorite folks.
Hi! We are rock stars in the Shoe World
Rotarians around the northwest part of Missouri collect money and/or shoes for orphans all year long. Larry said today that we have collected almost 200,000 pairs in the last few years. That is a lot, when the majority of the collectors live in towns without shoe stores or Walmarts. You do the math.
This is the inside of the semi truck...
this is only half of them so far
My buddies Kathy and Mel rode along for the
field trip fun. Mel even dressed up!
As soon as he saw the box loading action, Mel jumped right in. They may not be Rotarians, but they have Rotarian hearts. That is why I brought them along. I knew they would love it...plus Mel could do my part of the heavy lifting!
After the shoes are collected, they are driven to Dallas, Texas
the home of Buckner International, folks who specialize in
providing services for orphans.
These shoes will end up all around the world.
