How did we miss this picture the FIRST time we went through the bulletin back in February?
From "design your own wacky putt putt course art class" last summer, front and center. From what I remember Ben "offered" to take home the communal putt putt course they all built, taking up so much room in my car we had to roll all the windows down to make it fit. The course somehow "disappeared" just before we left for Florida as it was falling apart. We did keep the golf club that is typically used as an instrument of death as part of our weapons collection.
Speaking of cover stories, one of my students in AP Gov't is the president of one of our service clubs at school. He approached our History department last month to invite us to participate in a lunchtime speaker that served as a special prosecutor during the Watergate investigation. He is now a local attorney, but helped uncover Nixon's illegal White House Office taping system back in the 1970s. Yesterday he came to speak and afterwards our department (ahem...organized by good ol' Southern me,) hosted him for lunch. I was in all kinds of history nerd heaven listening to his work on the famous investigation.
It just happens that Woodward and Bernstein of "All the President's Men" fame are speaking next month as part of the 40th anniversary of the Nixon resignation. Yes, in case you had a bet going,
Ben may have the market covered as a smiling advertisements for local summer camps. But, I got to hold a copy of the Washington Post, dated August 9th, 1974 announcing historic news.
It was AWESOME in the highest levels of dorkery.
