    Thought for the week: No one is ever old enough to know better!

    Snow flurries on December 9 with what seems like sub zero temperatures, all before first day of winter. That is enough for me, I can move on out and be done with it, just saying.

    Last Friday night was our monthly girls night out with Sandy Ray, Tina Ray, Shannon Ray Whidden and Amy Lesniewski. We went to Mega Caverns Christmas lights under Louisville Zoo. I really enjoyed it and then went to Marks Feed store for supper. I had a great time with everyone.
