GNO

It's good to do service.  It's better to know what you'll be doing for that service.


A group of us volunteered to can chili at the Lindon Cannery.   This chili is placed at the Bishop's Storehouse for those in need.  When we arrived we were told to take off our shoes and put on boots, hairnets and gloves.  No problem.
Next we were handed goggles.  It made me wonder what kind of toxic chili we were canning!


We soon learned that our service was cleaning up after the chili canners!  



This Girls' Night Out...


brought out the best in us!


(Don't be jealous)

Yikes! What was that like? When my husband and I were first married, we used to volunteer at the churchs' tuna cannery in San Diego. Talk about a smelly place. They would throw these huge, cooked, whole tuna fish in front of us and we would have to peel off the skin, clean it and pull out the bones. I prefered the church orchard.
Suffice it to say, I don't look at tuna the same way any more.

Amazingly cute, that's you!

What a great Girls Night Out--love it. And you ALWAYS look so cute.

Tracy said...

A GNO sounds like the only way to do that kind of service!! Really, wouldn't it be nice to be able to just get the hose out and clean your kitchen at home??!!

You're the best example, keep up the good work! :-)

How can I not be jealous of people who get to spray down economy sized buckets with hoese? There is definitely jealousy.

You really know how to live it up, don't ya?
(At least it wasn't the dairy...we had to clean that when I was a teen. Not fun!)

karen said...

Oh, but I am. So, sooo jealous.

Joanie said...

I wish I was there to join in the fun!!! Now you have an idea for Halloween.

Julie Harward said...

LOL I think you just might have started a new fashion trend with that last picture! ;D

wendy said...

Oh Connie, you little chili DIVA. Those goggles are Soooooooo YOU.

Garden of Egan said...

That is such an awesome look.
I'm totally loving the boots. They are going to be the latest in fashion I'm pretty sure.

You could be the next cannery poster child!

FabuLeslie said...

Oh my goodness! What a bunch of troopers you are. Such good hearts to help out like that. Way to serve!

I remember working at the cannery back when I was a kid...it was a lot of hard work, too. Tuna was about the messiest thing of all time and we all smelled just heavenly by the time it was all done.

Cherie said...

Oh my gosh Connie I am laughing so hard. It is fun to work in the cannery but I have to say I have never been on the clean up crew!!

Valerie said...

Haha! Love the pics, especially the last one. It sounds like a lot of work, but glad you had fun doing it.

insert pouty face here...

I always miss the fun parties!!!

Gerb said...

I was so sad to miss a couple of my personal canning shifts after my silly fall. I love that cannery - but the cleaning up shifts are not my favorite.

Kimmie said...

Hilarious!! I forgot how you have to dress when filling an assignment at the cannery.

Tracy and I did White Meat Chicken Breasts a few years ago and we giggled the whole time at the outfits and it did bring out the best in us. LUCKY you that you were able to catch the moment in photos!!

Love your zest for life!!
