Popcorn and Pop

Last night (Friday). I was laying on the counter reading and I heard music floating through the air. Being the exceptional dragon that I am, my hearing is great. Anyway, I heard the music and I had to investigate. I shimmied into the nearest vent. Now it was a tight squeeze because I've been hitting the Snicker bars pretty hard lately. I slithered around school following the music. It brought me to the auditorium. I found the Popcorn and Pops concert. Found a vent with a view and made myself comfortable. The 4th and 5th grade Prelude singers were there. The 6th grade choir and even some of the high school choir members. The concert was a success. I liked the songs. Some of the kids were singing and dancing. The fourth grade kids got up there with their recorders and did a great job. As I listened my tail was tapping.

The concert also was a fundraiser for the local food shelf. I took a peek at the stuff the people donated. All I can say is, Wow.

The popcorn and pop after the concert looked good but since I'm fitting in the vents pretty tight I figured I'd better skip the refreshments this time around.

The concert was brilliant. Mrs. Strand and Mrs. Bungum, hats off to you for your fine job.

To all - Bravo!

Something to read.

I was thinking since it's now 4th quarter and you'll be looking for something new to read. I'd like to suggest Scott Westerfeld, Midnighters series. There are 3 books in the series. They read really fast and it has a good story.
A girl moves to a new high school in Bixby, Ok. and finds out that there is a secret hour only a very few know about.
The books are like popcorn you keep going until the last kernel is gone.

I just finished reading elsewhere by Gabrielle Zevin.
I had read different reviews and they were all good.
I will be honest as I read the book I had to keep telling myself to keep going. It wasn't a bad book but I kept waiting for something big to happen. When I was done I realized it was a good book. It's about a girl being dead but it's not creepy.
Give it a try.
You can find it at Paynesville library. If not on the shelf request it.
