Orchids and Onions

Another beautiful day in Havasu...

Orchids to the city worker doing landscaping at Rotary Park, whom I accosted with my request for assistance in getting a replacement for our memorial plaque. Time and the irrigation system had turned it black and made the words illegible. What a nice surprise it was today to see the new plaque! Pepper’s Family

Onions to the thoughtless ones who kept chattering as the awards were announced Thursday evening. Can’t believe you were so openly rude. Fear karma after that stunt.

Orchids to Mrs. Hayes at Telesis, I loved the glass etching my student made in class for Mother's Day. Nice that middle school students are offered to make gifts at their level, like when they were in kindergarten. She was so proud.

Onions to the water department. Meter was read on 4/23, bill not dated until 5/9, and not received until 5/17. What's with the delays?

Orchids to the discussion of building pickle ball courts versus helping our students with athletic fees. Let’s make a difference in a student’s future. He or she might become a Roger Staubach or Serena Williams. Help students play sports!

Onions to the first time onion giver. No one in the club cares about your, “better than most kids” or how “exceptional your wife is.” But most of all no one cares about “your status!”

Orchids to my awesome neighbors, Ed and Rose on Montezuma Drive. Thank you for always being there, love you and god bless! Karen

Onions to the construction crew for not watering per requirements and creating a "dust bowl" at Mesquite and Lake Havasu Ave, reminiscent of 30's Oklahoma and the Steinbeck novel, "The Grapes of Wrath.” The only things missing are the Joad's standing on one of the corners in their bib overalls.

Orchids to Brothers Auto Body on the wonderful help given to us when our auto was totaled, they are a class operation. Don and Pat

Onions to the whiner of the traveling American flag draping the bridge for 15 minutes; this flag will end up in Normandy, France for the D-Day memorial. Shut up and get a life.
