Thank you so very much for all the good wishes, cards and gifts from all my special customers. The years I have “spoiled all of you” have been a blast. I am so blessed to have been your “Checker of Choice” at City Market. Thank you all for being great customers.
They are constantly working to make “their views” the rule of law.
Long day? Overwhelmed by your to-do list, and the ice cream is melting in the car? Yes, you say? Let’s make those pick-ups peaceful and quick.
Buck, a red heeler, came in the clinic for vaccinations. He was somewhat larger than a typical heeler, and when we picked him up to put him on the table, it was obvious he wasn't a backyard dog. Buck was well muscled, not just genetically, but as a result of his lifestyle: he was a working dog. He was solid.
This year my mom was diagnosed with advanced Alzheimer’s Disease after progressively-worsening signs and symptoms prompted some visits to specialists in the Minneapolis area.
Donald Trump was up early, or maybe he was up late — or maybe he hadn’t slept at all, or maybe he hasn’t slept in weeks. We don’t know. What we do know is that while much of America presumably slept, Donald Trump was up and apparently too wide awake, banging away at The Twitter, where his millions of followers — and how apt the word “followers” seems — could see their leader gone mad.
This week we picked a bumper crop of apples from our two fruit trees. One tree produces a variety of Gala apples. They turn red and are delicious when eaten raw. The other tree produces some type of yellow-green apples that are best used for cooking.
Routines appear to be boring — the same tasks done in the same way twice a day, every day for months. It’s not that the tasks themselves are boring because there are other variables such as the silly things that the cattle do, having cats around, and so forth.
I would like to publicly thank the Craig, Maybell, Hayden and Steamboat Springs’ communities for their enthusiastic promotion of Constitution Week by exhibiting our numerous displays and supporting our activities. Special thanks to the Craig Daily Press and KRAI/55 Country for their media coverage and public announcements.
"Congress' overwhelming rebuke of President Barack Obama on a bill allowing 9/11 victims to sue the government of Saudi Arabia — and the bitter finger-pointing that followed — was a fitting coda to the dysfunctional relationship between the Obama White House and Capitol Hill."
Last week, I shared with readers details of the decline of the coal industry in Southwest Virginia and discussed the urgency felt by coal communities across the nation for balance between the need for jobs and the EPA’s emissions regulations that directly affect coal.
Birds of a feather flock together, so if you’re planning to see the cartoon “Storks,” you might want to go with the group of friends who have a high tolerance for silliness.
Most people who watched our choices for president debate Monday night were likely asking many of the same questions, and I’m not sure we got many answers. Clinton stuck to her well-crafted, prepared, talking points and Trump spoke off the cuff, with emotion. Certainly, the media will try to pick a winner but my analysis goes a bit deeper than who won or lost.
Please don’t think I’m crazy. I know that it’s not Groundhog Day. However, I found this week’s cute and educational picture book for children, and if I don’t review it now I’ll probably forget come February. Besides that, the book is all about a school, even though it would have been in session for a while now. “Groundhog Weather School” was written by Jean Holub and illustrated by Kristin Sorra. The story begins on Feb. 2.
Somehow the gate to the chicken pen was left open, and I'm looking at a scattered group of chickens and thinking about foxes, skunks and raccoons and the carnage I'd seen in the past perpetrated by them.
