Troublemakers in School, a Unique Way of Naming Your Puppy and Don Briand Wins an Award

Hope your Tuesday is off to a great start.  We were getting into trouble this morning on The Morning Waking Crew.  Well, sort of.

Troublemakers in School

We asked about the worst trouble you ever got into while in school.  I’m telling you, some of our listeners would make ‘The Breakfast Club’ blush!  (“You mess with the bull, you get the horns!”)  

Linda called the show and told us one day she brought a purse full of snakes to school and like I even need to finish this sentence – yup, some of them got out! She never explained why she felt the need to bring a purse full of snakes into school.

Tym told us the story about how he tossed his teacher’s car keys onto the top of the building. However, Tym does say that without said teacher, Darren Laughland of Kennet High, he wouldn’t have graduated. I’m guessing Mr. Laughland gave Tym a passing grade because he didn’t want to run the risk of having him held back.  BTW…this story is not about TimTern.

Congratulations to Kathy Danville.  She was our daily winner today of a $50 gift certificate to Freshwater Farms in Atkinson, NH.  Kathy, go get yourself something pretty!

Unique Way of Naming Your Puppy

You heard us talking about this during the show this morning and if you follow Mike Rowe on social media, you know he adopted a puppy recently. He asked his fans what he should name the newest member of his family and he received over ninety-thousand responses. That’s not the crazy part. The way he went about naming the puppy is the best part!
