    Thought for the week: Pray when you feel like worrying, give thanks when you feel like complaining and keep going when you feel like quitting.

    Saturday night I went on the Hardin County Special Olympics fundraiser casino trip to Horseshoe Bend Casino with Sandy Ray, Pat Ray, Mike Ray, Tina Ray, Lucas Ray and Amy Karlisl. All together there were 51 on the tour bus. We all had a great time and didn’t win big bucks, but we didn’t lose a lot either. First time I have ever been there and loved it.
