Cookies, Anyone?

We're selling Girl Scout cookies now! We went to pick up 10 boxes yesterday - this is the first time they've given boxes and you take orders, too. I knew that I could sell these cookies. I knew that they would be gone but how?

First, I put it on Facebook that I would have them at church. Then I intended to open up the back of my van and sell out it. (My plan did not include counterfeit watches and purses but it did tend that way.)

Yes, I grew up that selling in the church was a no-no. But, if you review the account of the moneychangers in the Bible, the moneychangers were taking advantage of the out-of-towners. We had no intention of making any money - Abbie just wants all the "incentives."

Without too much trouble, we sold 50 boxes!! It has turned into a family affair, for sure! We had a couple of people just giving money! Thanks for that - we'll put that right to our troop.

I hope we didn't offend anybody but we're having fun!

You know, I don't remember any incentives when I sold Girl Scout cookies. They are delish!

I had about three people wanting to know where I got my cookies.

I want some! I've been sick. I'm doing much better. Have missed the past 2 Sundays. My favorites are the thin mints, but we like some of the other cookies too! Email me at Shortdma@gmail.com. Save me some, please. Donna Altman
