We have the go ahead to start class from our Security Team – so let’s do this!
Yesterday we had a whole lot of action here at school from school bell with a big crowd wanting to be FIRST COMMENTER to the end of the day when people were still thinking the photo depicted Fred and Wilma Flintstone’s home. HAHAHA
That big structure in the center of the photo that looked like a BIG TABLE……….well perhaps it was?????
Hmm…makes you wonder right?
Anwyay, let’s start at the beginning – with the VERY LONG LIST of First Commenters from yesterday shall we? May we have a drumroll???
WE HAD FIVE FIRSTIES!
INGRID, SHARON, TIMMY, JACKIE, KATTY, CSILLA
So are we! It’s a bumper crop of Firsties! Each of you get one of these:
“Now I have one of my depression headaches!”
Maybe next week Leonard………………! Now let’s talk about the Teaser Photo. First of all as you remember, it was from the Graphics Department. Here it is again:
This is the Petrified Wood Forest in Lemmon, South Dakota
The city contains the Lemmon Petrified Park, the home of the world’s largest petrified-wood park. This tourist attraction fills an entire block of the downtown area and is built entirely of petrified wood, fossils, and stone. Construction began in 1930 and continued until 1932 under the supervision of Ole S. Quammen. It was in private ownership until 1954, when it was donated to the city by Quammen’s heirs. The park features a wishing well, a waterfall, and a castle. The castle weighs 300 tons and boasts towering spires and turrets. Also in the park are two separate museums, both built entirely of petrified wood. The larger of the two is circular has a petrified grass floor along with petrified logs. Dinosaur claws, bird tracks, and fossilized snakes can be seen in the petrified wood. Also in the museum are antiques and artifacts from the Lemmon area. The formations in the park number over 100 and are up to 20 feet tall.
Interesting huh? We all think so too…………even though it decidedly looks like the area where the Flintstones and their pet dinosaur could have lived, it isn’t.
WHO was our First Right Guesser??? (drumroll please)
Way to go Timmy – and here’s your badge:
And there were QUITE A FEW of you who also guessed it right – right CITY (Lemmon) and STATE (S. Dakota) and if you were one of them – PLEASE have a badge from us!
AND of course those of you who didn’t guess the Teaser correctly get one of these lovely badges:
“One of us woulda guessed first but we were sneakin’ a smoke in the rest room!”
Cheer Team (in your new outfits!) please cheer this crowd up…
Good for you Timmy and Ingrid – both of you are frequent flyers when it comes to being first and right…………………so thanks for inspiring the rest of the class!
Well done ladies and you look absolutely FABULOUS in your new outfits! Although it kind of looks like you have great big containers of buttered popcorn instead of pom poms in your hands. OOPS – sorry about that!
Congratulations to all our winners AND losers alike!!!
