Good Cris and Goof Cris





When I was a kid I loved Highlights magazine.  Are they even still in circulation? Anyway, in this magazine my favorite column was the “Goofus and Gallant” article.  Goofus was exactly what the name implies, always complaining and not very nice.  Gallant was every parent’s dream child.  Gallant was courteous, always Mr. nice guy.  So I thought why not a nod to two of my favorite kids?

In Autumn Good Cris loves...

Piles of multi colored leaves in all shapes and sizes

Goof Cris says…
Yuck, piles of multi colored leaves that need to be raked and removed.  Especially ones from the neighbors yard who don’t feel the need to rake and remove

Good Cris loves…

Crisp fall temperatures in the 50’s that require light jackets

Goof Cris says…
Brrrrrrrr

Good Cris loves...
Football

Goof Cris says…
Just leave me alone, that darn leaf raking can just wait till the Football game is over

Good Cris likes...
Halloween, Trick or Treaters and hand made costumes

Goof Cris says…
OMG, not the doorbell again!  Really now, bed sheets?

Good Cris likes...
Fall Festivals and Fairs of all types and sizes

Goof Cris says…
Hot dogs, French fries, cotton candy, kettle corn, Alka Seltzer

Good Cris looks forward to...
Craft shows where holidays start early

Goof Cris says…
No I don’t want to have a makeup party, I'm pretty enough thank you very much

Good Cris loves...
Carving pumpkins and the Pumpkin Patch with miles of various sized pumpkins

Goof Cris says…
What the **&&^^ is wrong with three triangles and a circle?

Good Cris enjoys...
Back to school sales and big yellow school buses

Goof Cris says…
Honestly, this can’t be the supply list for 4thgrade; it’s the size of War and Peace.

Good Cris loves...
All the multi colored mums

Goof Cris says…
No doggy, not there!

Good Cris likes...
Halloween leftover candy

Goof Cris says…
Can we say, Jenny Craig?

Just to be perfectly clear, I am not Goof Cris and any association to persons alive or dead are purely coincidental.  Honestly, I’m not Goof Cris.  If you think about it I could be Gallant Cris.  I mean she’s kind of nice and I’m nice.  Oh just forget it, it’s a parody lighten up…

My favorite too as a child. Then my mother gave a subscription to my daughter growing up. I think I may have seen one recently in a Dr's waiting room, but can't be sure. Terah

Funny how we all swing from one to the other!

BTW, saw that you've got your Zazzle store up and running (down at the foot of the page)! Well done - how's it going?

Too funny, I think I'm a little bit of both Good Cris and Goof Cris.

p.s. I get Highlights invitations for my son quite often so they are alive and well!
