The Thursday Threesome # 7

State Fair And Rodeo

OnesomeState: What state (or territory) do you live in? Have you lived in any other(s)? Where would you like to live? And as a bonus: Any idea what year your state became a state?
Tennessee-I have only lived in Tennessee-Tennessee became the 16th state in 1796.

TwosomeFair: Or amusement parks: Did you enjoy them as a kid? What was your favorite ride? How do you feel about them now? Ready to go wander around one again, sampling funnel cakes and corn dogs and riding rides until you’re sick? …or would you rather just enjoy the entertainment or stay home and avoid the crowds?
I loved the County Fair as a child. My Granny lived right down the roa, so we could just walk on over. I go to the fair each year at the beginning of the school year with my Kindergarten class. I enjoy this because we look at all of the exhibits. As a child, I never did that. I usually stay away from the fair, but last year I went with my cusin and her girl and I had fun. I rode 3 rides. I am not big into the rides now.

ThreesomeAnd Rodeo: Have you ever been to or watched a rodeo on TV? Did you enjoy it or consider it a barbaric spectacle? If you liked it, what was your favorite event? Ever tempted to race barrels or ride a bull yourself?
I have never been to a rodeo, but I have watched it on TV.I consider it a barbaric spectacle-lol. I have never raced barrels or rode a bull. I am good friends with many barrel racers. I once had a farm with horses and rode all of the time!

Letters~Alphabet~NaBloPoMo

What walks on four legs, runs in a 1, 150-mile race, detects bombs, tracks, bad guys, and still enjoys an afternoon of chasing Frisbees? It’s Canis familiaris, otherwise know as the dog. Whether a mutt or purebred, the domestic dog has been part of human society for thousands of years. W is for Woof: A Dog Alphabet offers a canine course through simple rhymes accompanied by informative, entertaining sidebar text. Subject matter includes behavior, obedience, training, grooming, and health care. After reading W is for Woof, you will have a better understanding of what makes “Rover” tick from the top of his head to the tip of his tail.

W is for Woof: A Dog Alphabet

I am participating in NaBloPoMo (National Blog Posting Month-is now going on every month) for the month of April. The theme is letters.

I will be reading this book to my Kindergarten class. We will start when we return from Spring Break and will read one letter a day. This book will go along with our Service Learning Project which will also start after Spring Break. We (Kindergarten) will be learning about animals & pets and we will have a guest speaker from the two local animal shelters visit us. Then we are going to make posters to put around the school and in the surrounding community asking for donations for the Animal Shelters.
I thought about sharing the book here on my blog one letter a day, but I wasn’t sure about copyright laws and such. I really wanted to do this, but now I think I have changed my mind. Now I have decided to do Blogthings Alphabet-Style. You know how I like to play games-lol! Do you have any input, thoughts, or ideas for me? Edited: I am doing Blogthings-I have already found all but 1 letter-lol.

Memes: If you like to play, I am hosting two new memes (Scrumptious Sunday & Hump Day Humor) at my other site: Mercedes Rocks. These have finally been added to The Daily Meme! Woohoo! Please come on over and check it out! I would love to have you participate! Thanks!
