About 10 years ago or so I used volunteer at our Elementary School, mostly I would read, sometimes I would do presentations with a computer and a projector and on special occasions I would do a "Gee Whiz" session.
This is when I would spout useless but interesting facts to the kids, after hearing said facts the kids would all have to say, in unison . . . . Gee Whiz. Of course this turned into Geeeeeeeee Whiiiiiiiiiz
It's been a while but I have a few to lay on you. Don't forget, after each fact - Geee Whiiiz
- Coca-Cola was originally green
- The State with the highest percentage of people who walk to work: Alaska
- The first novel ever written on a typewriter: Tom
- If you were to spell out numbers, how far would you
have to go until you would find the letter "A"?: One thousand
- If a statue in the park of a person on a horse has both
front legs in the air, the person died in battle. If the horse has one front leg in the air the person died as a result of wounds received in battle. If the horse has all four legs on the ground, the person died of natural causes.
Gee Whiz !

Sisters come to visit
Phyllis and Michelle took time from their busy schedule to visit Mother Superior down here in Texas. While here, they also blessed us with their presents (bagels). They spent most of their time eating with a side trip to the nail salon as well as shopping where they picked up some bad habits. A good time was had by all
