Another Thorsday missed, but at least this time, it was for a good cause.
Lest you think Mama finally has her priorities in order, the woman who neglects us for the League’s sake also made Moggie have a board meeting on her birthday. At least the cake was cute and it honored Ellie, Moggie’s sweet pup who was surely missing her Thorsday night too. (Don’t give Mama too much credit; she merely asked another dog-lover, League, baker-friend to make cupcakes for the meeting, and the clever, creative Miss Shannon took it from there.)
See? That’s Ellie and her mom at another board meeting, obviously one where the weather was MUCH warmer. I – Gretchen Greer – got to go to a board meeting last year, but didn’t enjoy it too much. Because of Sissy’s food allergies and that whole being a hound (read: no self-control when it comes to food) thing, she hasn’t been able to go visit the nice ladies. Plus, who wants slobber-gobbers on their legs?! (No offense, Sis…)
The good news is, the board showered Miss Moggie with gifts. As the incoming president, she now has a leadership slate, a budget (cough, cough… a smaller budget than this year’s… which was more than tight enough… not much of a gift if you ask me, but no one did), spiffed up bylaws and policies, AND a brand-new strategic plan. That one isn’t much of a gift either, because guess what Mama assigned Miss M as her special project for this year? Yeah. The dang StratPlan. Maybe Mama doesn’t give such good gifts to her friends after all, but the cake was cute, and Dadaw let us have a bite, since Miss Moggie sent
us him a couple of cupcakes!
Do your people give better gifts than Mama and her board friends?!
