You Might Be a Republican

(Continuing with our theme of destruction and demolition, we turn our attention to the GOP, which is having its worst period of time since Watergate. I still consider myself a conservative and a Republican, but I am able to laugh at their current misfortunes. It sure beats crying.

Thanks to Rawhide for the text.
I found the pictures everywhere.)


1. You might be a Republican if...

You've ever complained about a liberal bias in the obituaries section.



2. You might be a Republican if...

You'll spend $20 billion guarding a bridge against the possibility of a terrorist attack, but won't spend 20 cents to keep it from falling down on its own.



3. You might be a Republican if...

You think a Lynch film is a documentary on race relations.

4. You might be a Republican if...

You think spooning is something you do at Dairy Queen.

5. You might be a Republican if...

You think smeared bagels are victims of the New York Times.

6. You might be a Republican if...

You think the right to free assembly is talking about construction companies.

7. You might be a Republican if...

Your desk has a drawer for holding computer punchcards.

8. You might be a Republican if...

You think "proletariat" is a type of cheese.

9. You might be a Republican if...

You once broke loose at a party and removed your neck tie.

10. You might be a Republican if...

You ever told a child that Oscar the Grouch "lives in a trash can because he is lazy and doesn't want to contribute to society."

Adopt Liz's Classroom


Are you looking for a worthy cause? Liz's classroom needs help with just basic supplies. Last year we put over $3,000 of our own money into her classroom. This year, however, we've both had medical expenses that have cut into Liz's classroom supply fund. Through the Adopt-a-Classroom program, donations are collected for the adopted classroom, and the teacher (Liz) will be able to purchase instructional materials, games, etc. at cost. In turn, the sponsored classroom will communicate with the individual(s) who adopt the classroom. The donation is 100% tax deductible, and no overhead costs are collected by Adopt-a-Classroom. If you would like to help or need additional information, please click here. Your help would be greatly appreciated by Liz and her students. Thanks a bunch!

East Primary Demolition Update

Oh, the humanity!

The technology center is where our computer was born.

Maybe we can steal a brick as a souvenir?

See Room 19's asbestos abate.

Above is the front door as it was ...

... and as it is now.

So much for our idea of stealing a brick, huh?

(Photo from KISD's website.) Demolition started at the back, and pretty soon ...

You can see one corner of Room 19 is still standing. Oddly enough, it was the draftiest corner. We thought it would be the first spot to collapse.

Destruction is fascinating.




Meanwhile, at the new building ...

Lotsa boxes await us. No problem.
