In case you haven’t heard, we got bumped down to the old grade school building. We call it The Whiteboard House. We have loads of do it yourself self help classes you can attend for a very reasonable fee. How does $0.00 sound to you? We won’t be able to offer these high quality classes for nothing for very long, so do your helpless self a favor and sign up before the cost becomes prohibitive.

The following do it yourself self help classes are currently available at the Whiteboard House

Lav is teaching: Life beyond the red convertible…This is a mental health issue many like Lav struggle with. Just when you think you’ve got it under control, a red convertible passes you, and you run after it like a dog. It can literally take seven years off your life. This class is for those without money who need help. If you’ve got money, then just buy yourself a red convertible. How’s that for a DIY solution. If you’re not flush enough, then take the class. You simply cannot avoid red convertibles the rest of your life. In the meantime, DO NOT VISIT THE PIONEER AUTO MUSEUM.

Sherri, the photographic drawer is teaching: DIY mug shots…You can draw your own mug or someone else’s. Sherri is a real what you call…rule follower. She makes even the most dangerous criminals sign a waiver before she draws their photographic mug. Anyway, you might learn something..I don’t really know. Bring a number 2 pencil and a box of freezer wrap. You’ll need that to mark the feet and inches of the perps you draw…and masking’ll need that to tape your chart up.


Queen E is teaching: Those who can’t do teach...It’s all about saving money. I know there is no charge for our DIY classes, but time is money right? She goes on and on and on about how to save your money…Just never have any with you …it’s as simple as that. A picture is worth a thousand DIY classes.


We have so much more to offer, but I have just been informed that The Murdo Coyote Newspaper has cut us off for this week. I guess they don’t know that ads for our zero cost DIY help yourself classes are PSA’s. Oh well, we at the Whiteboard House pick our battles. When we start charging, we will offer buy one and get another for a penny. Watch for our advertisements.

Our clinically proven motto is: If you point a finger at someself, there are 3 or 4 more pointing back at your DIY.

    I was in the old building for all 8 years. Bottom left 1-2, bottom right 3-4, upper left 5-6, and upper right 7-8. My memory is a little foggy; however, I believe I got all A’s all the time!

      I know..I heard about it from all of my teachers who taught you too. Dad was also smart. They didn’t bring up Mom a lot.

    I came to town school in 7th grade and we had a one room schoolhouse again. It was a separate building and everyone was in the same grade. Quite different than my country school. I think second semester we moved to the new school. Anyway, thanks for the laughs. Funny stuff MG.

      We started 8th grade, Mr. Pickner’s class, in the old building and moved to the new building 1/2 through. I remember Mrs. Palander’s 7th grade room. Which DIY class would you like to teach 07?

        My memory must be shot. I would like to teach the art of self defense. I am going to teach people how to run away.

      I went to that little one room school for seventh grade that the district moved in from the country also. Felt like the big time when I got to go to the eighth grade in the two story school building.

    Great old photo of the gradeschool. I loved the creaking wood floors and stairway. Many good memories there.
    I definitely need to take Sherri’s class because I need help with my self mug shots. Queen E is my kind of gal. I never have money in my purse nor anywhere else.

      The funny thing is, Queen E. always looks so surprised when she opens up her purse and there’s nothing in it! I remember the smell of those old wood floors.

        Yes. The smells stay in your memories also.

        Yeah! She’s some queen. Isn’t she wealthy? I can understand why she looks surprised. Why no cash?! Maybe she’s looking for a mint or gum.

    I looked and looked for a photo of Murdo Grade School to use with one of my posts. Is this your photo? May I use it if I need one in the future???

      It’s an old photo that Wayne Esmay posted on FB. He has provided many of the photos I use..directly and indirectly.
