All right, let's get to the stories. Our first contribution comes from Jersey, Joe, from New Jersey. Here we go. Whoever thought the country would be in sync mode with these crazy nine to Ram our nation capital abode. Truly, these are not the days of our lives. What we are witnessing are the ghost of Jim Crow pass , thinking about how does one get away? Well, we know solid norms like icebergs are here to stay. So if you're feeling like I am and you need some vacay reserve your iceberg, like I am today. Thank you for your contribution, Joe . I feel you I'm ready for a vacation. I just don't know where when, but I'm with you. Thank you. Next we hear from Sharon G a retired educator in Louisiana. I was all excited for my first visit to Alaska. I am not a fan of cold weather, but this was an exciting new adventure to embark. Well, my imagination took over. I was thinking, what if some of the ice I am on is actually a pond and it breaks. And I sink below the ice as if that wasn't bad enough. What if we are on a snowmobile and it hits an iceberg, then I thought, what if we are charged by a Ram ? At that point, I realized I was really hunted bad thought path because I don't believe Rams are in Alaska. Now, if I thought a moose , I might be thinking more on check. However, I'm going to let go of all those foolish thoughts and enjoy my trip. Thank you, Sharon, for sharing in. Um , I agree. You're more likely to see a moose than a Ram , but I appreciate your submission. Up next is Dr. Renee G from New Jersey. As I sink into my bed, trying to determine why as a people there seems to be an impenetrable iceberg in front of us. The oppressor has constantly rammed in our faces that we are worthless or insignificant, but I realized if we collectively migrated to our motherland, they would perish because they would kill one another because they will not have Amy group of people to release their solace evil. I feel you Dr. Renee, thank you for sharing. I appreciate it. Next. We will hear from coach Sherry workforce development coach in Charlotte, North Carolina, green Bay, Wisconsin in December outdoors for hours at an NFL game. Why did I bet my husband during the summer heat of August, that I would attend the last regular season game in December before knowing where it was. He knows this would be a challenge for me. I never went to an outdoor game after October. It's too cold. Here I am in Wisconsin for the Rams versus packer game. My seat in the ground under my feet, feels like an iceberg. I have a sinking feeling that I won't make it all four quarters. I didn't even wear my mink and fear that the animal rights people would destroy it like they did to my aunt in Manhattan. That one time. Thank you, Sherry . Yeah. Green Bay in December. You should have wore your mink. Anyway. I appreciate you submitting that story. And last but not least yours truly here. I don't know who told Kelly to Ram her little fist into the dirt and pluck ahead of iceberg lettuce and toss it in the sink. It's too soon to harvest the lettuce. I am thankful for her act of kindness and smartness for a five-year-old. She simply practice what she hears me preach. Every time someone around here says they're hungry. Pick something from the garden. I would yell today. Kelly proved her Tinder ears, indeed work. She bought the iceberg lettuce into the house, walked into the kitchen and tossed a tiny four green leaf bunch into the stainless steel sink. I suppose the next day, she'll figure out how to snatch some tomatoes off the vine and peppers too , either way. I'm thankful my precious little Kelly listens to my words.
