I hope you had a great Thanksgiving! Usually – not this year or last due to family issues/health) I work at the United Methodist Church at their Thanksgiving meal for the community. I missed that this year and last but they had a successful year- so I am thankful for that. Not that I believe […]

I forgot to tell you last week – but our paper comes out one day early this week so you will get yours in the mail before Thanksgiving! I am sitting here working – on Sunday – I know – I hate that, too. But I have to be ready to go to press by […]
