Abalone Homey

Otter for a co-worker who requested it. He is holding an abalone (which is also called a "Geoduck" me thinks, pronounced "gooey-duck". Go

    When I was in 4th grade there was play that every child in Washington State had to be involved with. It was for the centenial and was called "Washington for Me". I got to be the Geoduck girl and dance around with a bucket, and big straw hat. It was cool. The song went:
    "Gooey duck, gooey duck, get a gooey duck,
    get a duck, get a gooey duck,
    Give a duck a day..."
    Which sounds rather offensive now that I'm older. (I just found the song, the scary thing is, I got the words right after all these years.

  • The apple IIgs game "The Oregon Trail" came up at work also. I did not realize it was such a widely played game at schools during the late 80's early 90's. We had to have five or six kids per computer it seemed. An explanation here for anyone who doesn't know.

  • That game was the shiznit. Speaking of shiznit, two more blogs have appeared.
