"Give her a feather, she's a Cherokee"



Lyrics courtesy of Mary Dean who wrote the song for Cher.


Short post today as I have been suckered...er, volunteered to be a parent chaperon for my daughter's field trip today. I wasn't originally going to go, but the school was unable to secure a bus for the class, and now parents and teachers will be driving the children for an hour to the Lake Mayer Indian Festival (sorry no link). Since I didn't want someone I didn't know driving my child, I opted to just do it myself.


So now I'm driving my child and two other kids. Ray is going to meet us there, since I have to be at work at 2 p.m. He gets the pleasure of driving the kids back to the school. Lucky for him, they'll probably all sleep on the way home.

Oh, and if anyone is wondering, the picture is of Iron Eyes Cody, the actor who portrayed the "Crying Indian" in that pollution PSA all those years ago. No, he wasn't Native American. He was a second generation Italian American, who just told everyone he was part Cherokee.

Friday Five tomorrow!

I've also driven on lots of field trips because I didn't want someone else hauling my kid(s)around.

I love a woman with control issues.

Hope you have a fab day and don't get vomited on or anything. There's always at least one kid who does that on school trips isn't there.

I often went along on school trips, too. Hope you had fun - there can be fun in there somewhere, I'm sure of it. I just don't remember any...Do have some very funny stories, however.
