Hi,

Does anyone know the poem that talks about rules of the house?
It kind of goes like this:

If you open it
close it
If you take it out
put it away
If you drop it
pick it up....


I think that's sort of how it goes. HELP!
Thanks

There was a refrigerator sized poster circulated a while back, maybe 10-15 years ago, which was based on the writings of Robert Fulghum. Here is a brief portion of what Mr. Fulghum had to say.

WE LEARNED IT ALL IN KINDERGARTEN
Condensed from Kansas City Times - Robert Fulghum

Most of what I really need to know about how to live, and what to do, and how to be I learned in kindergarten. Wisdom was not at the top of the graduate-school mountain, but there in the sandbox.

These are the things I learned: Share everything. Play fair. Don't hit people. Put things back where you found them. Clean up your own mess. Don't take things that aren't yours. Say you're sorry when you hurt somebody. Wash your hands before you eat. Live a balanced life. Learn some and think some, and draw and sing and dance and play and work every day some.

Les
