  7.   Be sure to read the card in your registration bag with instructions on what you will be doing on the Crawl and the rules that go with it.

Presidents Notes November 2019

AN ATTITUDE OF GRATITUDE
Invest a second in reading these lyrics to a song by JB regarding giving thanks for life every day! You’ll love it. I think it describes the heart of a Parrot Head.

Bully in the playground Where am I gonna play
Found another playground Half a block away
Made a little song up Called a little rhyme
An Attitude of Gratitude will do it every time

Chorus
An Attitude of Gratitude When stuff has got you down
Can get sastisfiatude and Turn yourself around
An Attitude of Gratitude Hooray for what’s o.k.
Say thank you with infactatude it’s a brand new day

Now daddy’s in the doghouse Mama’s up a tree
But I’ve got a bouefta looking after me
Made myself a sandwich A little P & J
An Attitude of Gratitude can chase the clouds away

Chorus
An Attitude of Gratitude that’s what it’s all about
That No-hope-to-be-had-atude is sure to wear you out
An Attitude of Gratitude Hooray for what’s o.k.
Say thank you with a infactatude it’s a brand new day

Everything’s a dollar a dollar twenty-five
Haven’t got a dollar but I’m glad to be alive
I stole a look at Janey she stole a look at me
An Attitude of Gratitude is absolutely free
They say this is the showdown They say it’s us or them
They just can’t see that us and we are relatives and friends
I made a little song up put it on the charts
Says come on people everybody open up your heart

Chorus
An Attitude of Gratitude when pushes come to shove
Eliminates combatatude and changes fear to love
An Attitude of Gratitude Hooray for what’s o.k.
Say thank you with a infactatude it’s a brand new day

Hope you have plenty to be thankful for this Thanksgiving and over the coming year! See you soon! Jan H., President

President’s Notes October 2019

HOLIDAY CHALLENGE!

Here’s a challenge for all you Parrot Head PHriends. It’s easy, fun and a quick way to make it through the October, November and December, festivities! We all love this time of year, but it brings with it a lot of demands like parties, shopping, cooking (my least favorite), travel, etc. Try this out! Just smile, giggle, grin, chuckle and laugh as much as you possibly can! Take life and yourself less seriously and look on the bright side! Laugh at your mistakes, you can try again! Your smile is a powerful tool. It’s a gift we all possess to make ourselves and those around us happy! In fact, start today! Next time I see you, I’ll be grinning, and I’ll expect to see your smiling face looking back!

Got you smiling yet? We have many opportunities for you to try out this challenge beginning with the November 1 Phlocking, our building float workshops for the Christmas parade on Wednesdays and Sundays, our annual Christmas Party Phlocking on December 6 and the Santa Crawl on December 7! See our newsletter for details or visit us at www.emeraldisleparrotheads.com. Add to this challenge a “Party with a Purpose!” See you soon. Jan H. President.
