Hello everybody, I have to say nice. It was nice to see rain last week wasn‘t it? When I was a child, I swore I would never open a conversation with talk about the weather, like the older generation used to do. Then I realized, I am part of the older generation.
Okay, lets get our birthdays from Gottrocks The Birthday Fairy, then on to local news and events.
Happy Birthday to Jean Lindler, Scott Riser, Marianne Hollingsworth, Dan Lindler, Tyler Hollingsworth, Gray Robertson, Frances Moates, Robbie Miller, Ben Burleson.
Feel Good Wishes
We send our best feel good wishes to Lee Bradley and Irby Raines Jr.
