I drove about 70 miles last thursday to a board meeting. I spoke out against what I thought was wasteful spending. They wanted to buy a near new building. It was much too large for our needs in my opinion and $600,000. I might have been too vociferous because I had two reporters call me yesterday from two different newspapers.
I saw something yesterday that has had me chuckling every time it crosses my mind. In a nearby town there is a trampoline, near a house, on a steep sidehill.
"Mom, can I go out and jump twice on the trampoline?"
Or if they ever sell the ad will say- For Sale: Trampoline. Like new condition. Used only for short periods, usually just two jumps at a time.
