Wagon Wheel August Newsletter

Monthly Newsletter of the Wagon Wheel Good Sam
Around the Camp Fire Jim and Linda Vance, Editors

My apologies to those of you that had postage due on the last newsletter. It seems that the USPO doesn’t like the way I folded some of the letters. Since I didn’t take that class in school, I’ve decided to put the newsletter in an envelope from now on. Sorry for any inconvenience.

Between the heat and someone letting the battery on the motorhome go dead we wound up commuting back and forth to Fort Rob for the weekend. Friday was hot but we found some shade trees to gather under. Saturday cooled down and some of our group had to put their coats on. Our hosts, Gary and Karen, served up Sloppy Joes for the noon meal which helped warm everyone. Thanks guys.

We had several guests this month. Bart & Doris had their friends, Russ & Caroline Gibson, Come all the way from Oklahoma to break bread with us. I have a few Okie’ friends they are good people. Dennis & Sharon had a family reunion. Dennis’s Sister and her friend plus Dennis & Sharon’s daughter, grand daughter and great grand son joined us on Saturday.

Our August campout is at Lake Minatare east side with Dennis & Sharon as hosts. We will be electing new officers and celebrating our 20th birthday. I heard there might be homemade ice cream so we hope you can make it. Carry in at noon o’clock.

Dennis called the July meeting to order with the Pledge of Allegiance. 13 Rigs answered roll call.

Sharon read the minutes from last month and Karen made a motion to accept as read with Bart 2nd. The motion carried.

Jim gave the treasurers report. Bob made the motion to accept the treas report with Bonita 2nd.

NEW BUSINESS – Dennis asked for nominations for officers for the up coming election. Dennis was nominated for President and Curt nominated for Wagon master. We decided to re-open nominations at the August meeting before voting.

We had a standing ovation for Gary and Karen for their outstanding job as our July hosts.

There being no further business “Da Prez” asked for a motion to adjourn. Carolyn made the motion. I didn’t hear who 2nd the motion and when I asked who, someone yelled, I don’t know and I don’t care. I guess I don’t know and I don’t care 2nd the motion.
The motion carried.
Janice Brixus – 25th

Happy Trails Y’all

Below are 7 reasons you never match wits with children

A little girl was talking to her teacher about whales. The teacher said it was physically impossible for a whale to swallow a human because even though it was a very large mammal its throat was very small. The little girl stated that Jonah was swallowed by a whale. Irritated, the teacher reiterated that a whale could not swallow a human; it was physically impossible. The little girl said, ‘When I get to heaven I will ask Jonah’. The teacher asked, ‘What if Jonah went to hell?’ The little girl replied, ‘Then you ask him’.

A Kindergarten teacher was observing her classroom of children while they were drawing. She would occasionally walk around to see each child’s work. As she got to one little girl who was working diligently, she asked what the drawing was The girl replied, ‘I’m drawing God.’ The teacher paused and said, ‘But no one knows what God looks like.’ Without missing a beat, or looking up from her drawing, the girl replied, ‘They will in a minute.’

A Sunday school teacher was discussing the Ten Commandments with her five and six year olds. After explaining the commandment to ‘honour’ thy Father and thy Mother, she asked, ‘Is there a commandment that teaches us how to treat our brothers and sisters?’ From the back, one little boy (the oldest of a family) answered, ‘Thou shall not kill.’

One day a little girl was sitting and watching her mother do the dishes at the kitchen sink. She suddenly noticed that her mother had several strands of white hair sticking out in contrast on her brunette head. She looked at her mother and inquisitively asked, ‘Why are some of your hairs white, Mum?’Her mother replied, ‘Well, every time that you do something wrong and make me cry or unhappy, one of my hairs turns white.’ The little girl thought about this revelation for a while and then said, ‘Mummy, how come ALL of grandma’s hairs are white?’

The children had all been photographed, and the teacher was trying to persuade them each to buy a copy of the group picture. ‘Just think how nice it will be to look at it when you are all grown up and say, ‘There’s Jennifer, she’s a lawyer,’ or ‘That’s Michael, He’s a doctor.’ A small voice at the back of the room rang out, “And there’s the teacher, she’s dead”

A teacher was giving a lesson on the circulation of the blood. Trying to make the matter clearer, she said, ‘Now, class, if I stood on my head, the blood, as you know, would run into it, and I would turn red in the face.’ ‘Yes,’ the class said. ‘Then why is it that while I am standing upright in the ordinary position the blood doesn’t run into my feet?’ A little fellow shouted, ‘Cause your feet ain’t empty.’

T he children were lined up in the cafeteria of a Catholic elementary school for lunch. At the head of the table was a large pile of apples. The nun made a note, and posted on the apple tray: ‘Take only ONE . God is watching.’ Moving further along the lunch line, at the other end of the table was a large pile of chocolate chip cookies. A child had written a note, ‘Take all you want. God is watching the apples..’
