Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways - Cabernet in one hand - chocolate in the other - body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO-HOO, what a ride!!"

300000 MEALS

For those of you that don’t know I work for a large United Methodist Church as a Facilities Manager.

This past weekend we had a Faith in Action Weekend.

We had volunteer’s doing projects  all over the area like landscaping around the church and ten acre of land we own.Also there was helping widows and shut-ins with things around there homes,helping with a Habitat house build and several other things.

But the biggest  project was packing meals for Haiti. 

We teamed up with a organization called  Numana Saving the Starving and the Salvation army .

Volunteers worked in shifts both days.



This is early Sunday before the start in the dinning room.

002 Bags of rice,soy and beans.




Then they came hundreds of them.



Looking down on to the basketball court.

007Angela and her helper even got in on the action.

Sunday about 4pm they had pack 300000 meals.

The meals will be on the ground in Haiti and passed out by next Tuesday.

It was a long weekend for me and my crew but it was for a good cause .

300.000 meals, what a great cause, that is just mind boggling, I hope it all goes to good use in Haiti, They have sure had their share of suffering. Was looking at Annie's picture, she could be Rigg's sister, and what a tongue, Rigg's has a huge tongue too. If you ask for a kiss you get a bath. Weather sure is great lately. be safe out there.
