Workin' at the Car Wash...

Miss AK "helped" me wash my car. Notice the quotation marks because she basically played with the water hose- of course splashing mud back onto my nice, shiny car...which meant another scrubbing. But I was enjoying the moment. I got lots of laughs and she wore herself out (which meant sleeping all night !!! YEA!!).
And if you know me, I just had to document the glorious afternoon with some pictures. As I was snapping away-- I was reminded of a fun evening a couple of years ago when I was still teaching at WES. Those of you familiar with that know of the "Faculty Follies" event held each year. Brief description- teachers/faculty get on stage in front of several hundred folks and make complete FOOLS of themselves to raise money for our school. (Yep, desperate measures) Anyway, my teacher friends and I performed to the song "Car Wash". This is a shout out to all my friends at WES---especially Anna, Elisha, and Carrie. Love & Miss ya'll!!! I do cherish those memories. Just to leave you with the song in in your head...

Car Wash by: Rose Royce
Ooh ooh You might not ever get rich
But let me tell ya it's better than diggin' a ditch
There ain't no tellin' who you might meet
A movie star or maybe even an Indian chief
(Workin') At the car wash , Workin' at the car wash,
Come on and sing it with me (Car wash)

Ooh! Some of the work gets kinda hard
This ain't no place to be if you planned on bein' a star
Let me tell you it's always cool
And the boss don't mind sometimes if you act the fool

I think the last verse of that is VERY appropriate for the story haha! Looks like she had fun- and see, we all knew she's not prissy!
