    Thought for the week: Remember as you slide down the great banister of life, there are going to be people who are splinters in your butt. Pick ‘em out and slide on!

    Well Christmas is in full swing now that it is second week of December. Make sure you don’t blink too fast because Christmas Eve will be here before you know it. There was a good turn out on the square for all the activities that were held last weekend. I have several Christmas luncheons and a plays to go to this week. It’s the busy time of the year, but I love it.
