The Good News “Waldo”

The Good News “Waldo”

What do Granny Vee and Waldo have in common? Search games! Granny Vee calls them “Kooky Quests”!

Have you ever searched for Waldo in a picture book? He can be very hard to find! But I chanced upon him outside the State Capitol of Texas. (Do you know where the Capitol of Texas is? Answer below.)

“Waldo” tells the good news to people! You can read more of this good news here!

Rare photo: There is very little SNOW in southern Texas! This was the SNOWSTORM that crippled southern Texas in February 14-15 of 2021.

The answer to the question: The capitol building is in Austin. But the city of Austin is the capital of Texas. If you are speaking of the building, it is spelt* “capitol”. But the city is spelt “capital”.

Mnemonic: You may remember this as Austin is the capital with an “a”, but the old office building is spelt with an “o”!

mnemonic = something to aid in memory (don’t pronounce the “m” in this crazy word!)

“Spelt” or “spelled”: Either is correct. When I grew up, it was “spelt” and I think it sounds better, so I prefer it! But the more common way is “spelled”.

The Habits of This Rabbit

ButtonsBfull

by Buttons the Bunny

 

I like to slip-slide down my ol’ bunny hole

I hippity-hop when I go for a stroll

I jiggle my jambs and I wiggle my nose

I like to jump, jump where the green grass grows.

*

I have an odd habit of bobbin’ my head

I collect buttons and bounce on my bed

I fiddle a fiddle with no fiddle there

But whatever I do, I do it with flare!

*

I dawdle and doodle and dance with a mop

I bugle and bellow and blow bubbles in pop

I chuckle and chortle at jokes that aren’t funny

But I hope you’ll still think me one charming bunny!

*

I dart among bushes and dangle from trees

I ask for more berries, and always say “please”

I twiddle and tumble and twist, twist my ears

But I’m hopeful and happy and full of good cheer!

*

I try to act rightly whatever I do

I try to speak kindly and politely, too

I share my carrots and eat all the rest

I think on good things and hope for the best

*

These are the habits of this rabbit

For me, they’re not strange

These are the habits of this rabbit

Who’d want me to change?

*

Granny Vee says, “I wouldn’t want you to change, Buttons!   I love you just the funny way you are!”
