Oof! She did it again

Dear Mom,
This afternoon, Bonnie Jo and I met in the library parking lot to Accomplish a Mission. As we have been trained to do, multiple tasks were accomplished in addition to the main mission. We each had things that needed exchanging.

Bonnie Jo brought me a fresh egg sampler, and the second of Golda's Giant Eggs.
I brought Bonnie a special chicken measuring tape so she can start recording the size of Golda's eggs.
I thought it was the cutest tape measure, with an egg at the end.

I also hunted down the book we three all read at sometime. I know this because we have all written our names on the cover. Wendy had to double claim the book as her own by adding her name and the words "if lost, Please Return of call ###-####" on an inside page to which my Young Lady added the same words but our current phone number. I don't think The Young Lady ever finished reading  it though, because there is a bookmark in it on page156.
I wanted Bonnie Jo to see this artifact from the 1970's.

It is in pretty good shape for a book that may be 40 years old and cost 50 cents. The cover has been taped on, and the yellowed, dried up tape has been reinforced by packaging tape, but all the pages are intact.

I hope I don't find a dinosaur inside this egg, like the boy in the story. I am hoping for a gold nugget like the Million Dollar Duck's.

Hey Kim, Do they really make a special tape measure for eggs? I'm a gullible sort, and I honestly don't know. It LOOKS authentic!

If you also have a copy of "No Children, No Pets" we could share book reviews. Michele

I'm gonna tell Mom! said...

Michele! No, it is not an official egg measurer. It is just a cute tape measure made to look like a chicken and I thought of Bonnie when I saw it.

You could always blow the eggs and use them for pysanki (spelling this wrong) then get the book "Rachenka's Eggs" by Patricia Pollaco...
Love your blog - very clever!
