On My Honor, Memory Monday

On my honor, I will try:
To serve God and my country,
To help people at all times,
And to live by the Girl Scout Law.

Who remembers being a Brownie?  Those brown uniforms were so ugly.  Looking it up on the net this am, I found out the name of the group was originally RoseBuds....I think I like that better and we could have had pretty colorful uniforms.  I was a Brownie for a short period of time, in Marion Ohio.  Never rejoined once we moved from there.  For some reason we were told by the principal of the school a group didn't exist.  It wasn't until years later I found out not only was there a group, but the scout leader was the Mother of friend of mine I knew through grade school, junior high, and high school.  I might add the principal was very anti-women.  Pop in next week for a follow up story on him and his anti-women.  Surely seems wrong for a man that only wanted to promote guys to be in education.  

I remember thinking it was fun, being in The Brownies, and remember earning a few badges, but don't really remember doing much of anything but getting together and having snacks at someone's else.  Maybe our group just wasn't very active.  I think some really got involved in community.  Where you a Brownie?  Did you like it?  Did you fly up to be a Girl Scout?  Or were you a member of The Camp Fire Girls?

It's time once again for Memory Monday....I keep trying to get others to play, I know there's not a person who doesn't have memories....come on folks get in the game.

My previous blog template was causing me issues, apparently something in it's code was no longer compatible.  I had that template for a long time, like it, as it was a 4 column blog template and there aren't many of those.  Using several browsers (Internet Explorer, and The newest Chrome) and using 2 different computers the title of the blog and photo was all smashed together.  Gave it some time to see if it would correct itself, it didn't, so quickly grabbed this one, which also has some issues.  Will be playing through and making changes.  Thanks for your patience.

I'm Listening, Memory Monday

 Ok folks, gonna try this Memory Monday again.  How's this for taking one back...I mean really back.  I don't know when I scanned this, and I don't now know where it is.  This was my Kindergarten report of progress card.  Don't you love how colorful it is, the stick people, the school house with The Flag out in front?  I found this along with some class pictures some time back and scanned them, then had forgotten all about it.  Due to computer troubles, the need to change browsers and thinking I had lost thousands of photo's, Dear Hubby did something on the computer which transferred over 3,000 photo's.  Many were duplicates like before and after pictures were edited, many were photo's I had taken off the computer and have on disc's and jump drives....somewhere........but among those 3,000 were some real treasures.  I guess maybe I scanned stuff and returned them to Mom and Dad?  Though Dad's not sure he has anything there...and I feel sure there aren't here.  hum....
Hard to believe, NOT if you know me some of the marks above.  Though I might take exception with the plays well with others....perhaps the teacher miss interpreted and meant I played too well, too often with too many, lol.  Only thing I do remember well was rest time.  We took towels to school so we could lay down on the floors and "rest".  Apparently that was not a favorite time for me.  The quiet kids got to get up sooner, me....can remember being one of the last to get up...apparently I like to visit more then "rest".

**ps, haven't been blogging, with above computer problems I've noticed my header looks funny...or at least it does to me, am now using google chrome, which I'm not too happy about, much preferred Mozilla FireFox.  Can you all let me know what browser you're using and whether or not the header looks right for you?**
