* and after …

If you missed the before picture click here and be magically transported to it.

Eh hum … please take note of this, I am publicly conceding defeat to mr. preacher man’s class in the Mt. Wesley Smackdown on hunger challenge.  The mens class are the official winners without even having to count the nasty crate full of chocolate covered cherries.  Congratulations men, you did a fine job! 

Now on to our next challenge.  Y’all better start saving your change now cause the young adult class has a head start on our jar.  Come January, it’s on again … maybe we’ll make this little competition a best 2 out of 3!

If you happen to know anyone who may be in need of a food box please email me that information.  Our pantry has been blessed and Eric is in the process of preparing a list of families to deliver boxes to and it would be a shame if someone who is in need isn’t included.  Plus, we have an entire case of chocolate covered cherries that need a home and another entire case of toilet paper to accompany them on their journey.

Once again, thank you so very much to everyone who participated.  Your generousity is greatly appreciated.

    Well, Well, Well, I didn’t come to gloat, pat ourselves on the back or even say I told you so. I just came by to say thanks to everyone who helped and I am sorry your class came up just a bit short Melinda. In conclusion I have one thing left to say: “I’m a green bean pickin’ , tomato soup givin’ food pantry stackin’ son of a gun. To be the man you have to feed the man. WHOOOOOOOOOO!”

    I’ve got a little rhyme for you. Melinda’s food box sat on wall, melinda’s food box had a great fall, all of her class and all of thad’s friends couldn’t help poor little Melinda win. Have a good one.

    Good point Tony. How about another rhyme. Hickory dickory dock Melinda went out to shop, She took Thad and maybe Brad, but in the end she still was had. Hickory Dickory Dock.

      melinda had a preacher man who’s wit was sure to show. with his win beneath his belt, oh boy did he glow. he delivered boxes near and wide with cathy by his side. melinda, thad and maybe brad and all our friends to boot did not become discouraged to see him with his loot. many folks we all did help so i can stand to hear him yelp. the little rhymes do make me grin even as much as i like to win. so brag away my preacher friend cause you won’t beat me ever again!

    I am glad my rhymes can make your face glow but when I saw the challenge I said whoa but in my heart I felt like Santa HO, HO, HO.
