"C" is for Cookie that's good enough for me,
"C" is for cookie that's good enough for me,
"C" is for cookie that's good enough for me,
Oh! cookie, cookie, cookie starts with "C"!

TIME:  5:42 PM
PLACE:  Outside the Family Video store
SUBJECT:  Girl Scout Cookies

Today kicked off Girl Scout Cookie time.  In our area, cookies are sold in the fall, which is good, because across the river in Missouri, they sell cookies in the springtime.  Therefore, I am able to purchase cookies a couple of times during the year – how convenient is that?  The “Cookie Caravan” is this weekend, when the girls sell cookies with their troops at locations throughout the area.  StellaDella, our resident Daisy scout, DramaQueen, the Cadette scout and I helped SD’s troop sell this afternoon.  Next week they receive the individual order forms to hit up friends, relatives and co-workers.  There is a slight turf war over who gets to send an order form with Aunt Cathy to her place of employment (a hospital in Missouri, always good for at least 100 boxes).  I think we are going to end up splitting those orders between the girls this year.  Does anyone else want to buy some cookies?
