It's so funny that I can remember back all those years from when I was 6, 7 and 8 years ond. Wearing my pretty green girl scout uniform with sash and all my pins I earned from doing good duties. And the Girl Scout Promise. "On my honor I will try to domy best, to do my duty to help others, etc"
Well Yesterday Robert and i went up the hill to the Plaza where Albertson's Store is and i peddled in the shops. Payless Shoe Source, Blockbuster Video then Fred Meyers Store, Baskin robbins Ice Cream shop and Starbucks Coffee. Asking thems weetly witha smile on my face, my team shrrt and jacket and "Blind Ambition" buzz cap... "Hi, I'm Debbie. I'm on Portlands Blind Ambition Dragon boat Team. It's America's first ever Visually impaired team and we are ahving a fund raising blindfold Spaghetti dinner in October and I am creating a basket to auction off at the dinner. Would you please be kind enough to donate goods or services to fun my upcoming trip to China?" It was fun. I got a free card also to put in the basket for a free cut, blow dry and style at my friend's Hair Salon. I'm far from done but should ahve actually gottens tarted weeks ago.
I feel just like I did when I was a Girl Scout selling cookies and Calendars.
