Thirty Two Days--The Underground Bulletin

I mentioned my lack of artistic and musical ability, but I am a fairly descent writer.   I have always liked to write and I especially like to write about humorous events.  Our wonderful principal, Leona, always published a bulletin with information, etc., in it for our teachers and staff.

So I decided to be creative and start writing an "Underground Bulletin."   I would write about funny things that were happening with teachers and staff at school.  Of course, I embellished a lot of the stories and I used a lot of alliteration.  It was so fun to do and I think the staff really enjoyed it and even being featured in it.   Leona even would give me information about things that were happening so that I could write about it.    I still have many of the copies of it.  I just need to figure out where they are.  Down the road I hope to publish a few of the "articles".

At that time, there were no computers and I had to use dittos to publish the underground bulletin.   What a pain it was!   It is hard to imagine in this day and age of computers, how difficult it was to write and make copies of things!!!!

 A few years before I started doing this, a friend from the Junior High started a District one and it was called "Que Pasa."  I never had anything to do with it, although I was a featured story once.   However to this day, Wally Delecki still "blames" me for it.  I have told him over and over again it wasn't me, but to no avail.

That was my first experience writing about humor.   And that is why I have enjoyed my blog through the years!!!
