On May 9, my mother, JoAnn Mattox, and I went to my daughter, Joni's, senior program at Union Christian Academy in Fort Smith, Ark.
Afterward, I took my mom to Lin's Garden Chinese Restaurant for her Mother's Day lunch. As we're walking in, two ladies run out of the door, saying, â€śWe're leaving. Don't go in there, too many kids!â€ť
I turn and look in the parking lot, and there's a Panama Public Schools bus.
Now, I'm thinking to myself that this could be fun. I decided I was going to five these â€śseniorsâ€ť all they can handle. I walk in, and all I see are about 50 midgets â€” all third-graders â€” making laps around the huge buffet. I love it! I was thinking that this could be even better.
The first little boy that came by me just had two wings on his plate. I asked him, â€śIs that all?â€ť He shrugged his shoulders and said, â€śI don't know what all this stuff is?â€ť
I was really impressed in which these Panama third-graders attacked the buffet with military precision and accuracy. They didn't run or fight, and everybody said, â€śYes, ma'amâ€ť and â€śThank you.â€ť They had more manners than some grown-ups!
Save the world, recycle.
God bless our troops and veterans.
Have a great weekend.
