Cowardly Lion: I'd be brave as a blizzard...
Tin Woodsman: I'd be gentle as a lizard...
Scarecrow: I'd be clever as a gizzard...
Dorothy: If the Wizard is a wizard who will serve.
Scarecrow: Then I'm sure to get a brain...
Tin Woodsman: A heart...
Dorothy: A home...
Cowardly Lion: The nerve!
I love old movies and plays. They bring so many good memories. I love it.

Here are some recent pictures that I have taken at work. The first picture is of the helmet that I wore when I cleaned the chicken coop at work. It is a hard helmet with ear sound protectors, and a mask in the front. Sandy's husband uses it for weed-eing. The second picture is when it rained really hard and a lot when I was at work. I didn't put the hood on the rain coat and I decided to do this to keep the rain off my hair even though it was already wet at the time. Sandy's husband got a new feeder to feed the sheep, lamb, and llama their hay. It makes it a lot easier. Basically I just get the hay cut off the bailing twine and then I put the hay into the feeder and they have food. Have a good day. :)
In other words, we are in control of how we think. We are in charge of how we feel. We are free to choose how we act. Just knowing this can liberate us from feeling stuck and feeling like others and our circumstances have power over us to dictate how we should feel, think, and act. This principle can be stated as follows: WE ARE FREE TO CHOOSE HOW WE THINK, FEEL, AND ACT AND KNOWING THIS CAN LIBERATE US FROM FEELING STUCK IN OUR EMOTION COMMOTION.
I just wanted to share these words from one of my classes.

In June my niece Kalli turned 3 years old. I helped my sister Reva with her birthday party. We had lots of fun with water and other party games.
I went to a couple of my friends wedding receptions. It was great to be able to travel and have the time to think!
I cut my hair on July 9th. It has been nice to have shorter hair. It makes things easier and harder at the same time.
In May I started a new job. Virginia the lady I was working for passed away. It was sad she died, but she is in a better place. Sandy my new boss is a lot of fun. I don't think there has been a day where I haven't laughed at something that happened at work. She has some very cute animals. Apollo the Llama and Stomper one of the sheep are my favorites. The animals teach me many lessons that I can apply to my life.
My car was expensive for me this summer. First I had a motor that sounded like it was going to die, then I had brake issues, and then I have had tire problems. It is crazy.
In July I had a family reunion in Idaho. We went swimming, played games, talked, and ate food. I enjoyed the time I spent with my family.
One very eventful thing that happened at my apartment was that the sewer backed up in our downstairs bathroom. It was gross and stinky.
My summer was a very good one filled with adventure and excitement.

Two Saturday's ago at my job I did some weeding and while I was weeding I had a grand adventure crawling underneath the branches of a bush to get to the weeds. I felt like I was in a cave but I was not. I also get to feed cute animals. When they were in the area where the hay is for a while the sheep would try to get into the chicken coop because I was giving the chickens grain or taking care of them. They knew that grain was in the chicken coop. It is a fun time feeding the animals.

This past Sunday Jeanni Evans and I made homemade taffy. It was a lot of fun. It went a lot faster than I thought it would. It was really hot when we started to pull it. It was worth the pulling of the hotness. It was also funny because I put the fork on a package of butter to set it aside until we were done. Well after we were done and cleaning up the taffy had cooled like in the picture. It was cool.

So I have a question for everyone. What are your thoughts on how attitude affects how we live in our daily lives? What do you think when you hear a performance and its good but the person doesn't seem like they want to play or be there? What is the affect of people seeming like they don't want to be somewhere? I have to write a story for a class and I need to know what others think? If this doesn't make sense ask me to clarify what is not making sense. Thanks so much.

So while working a school project I was reminded of old tv shows that I used to watch. One that hit me in particular was Mr. Rogers. I loved that show because of the new things that I could learn and the imaginary neighborhood. It is good to take time to play in our lives. Sometimes it is just what we need to get us through a tough day.
Have a awesome pawsome day!!!!!!!!!!

We are playing Imperatrix, Cahjun folk songs, hebrides suite, when the stars begin to fall, and another piece that is looney tune type of stuff.
Another thing that has been fun is that I am learning my scales better. I used to not know very many scales and now I know at least six of them. It is also fun learning about the transposing process.
Have a wonderful awesome day.

Words of Wisdom
The effect of our words and acts is tremendous in this world. Every moment of life you are changing to a degree the lives of the whole world. … So, it’s not the surroundings, it isn’t the positions; the thing that will influence [others] in this world, are personalities. No matter what you are people will feel and recognize this. You radiate, you can’t hide it. You may pretend something else, but that will not affect people.
