November 2020 Edition


Currently my ears are carrying my headphones, my sunglasses, and a face mask. Ears are
the new purse! It is officially wear a sweater in the morning and regret it in the afternoon
type of weather. It also brings new and the same old challenges. For us the challenge is
missing our buddies and wanting to go to a crowded coffee. It is also the time for
thankfulness. Let’s not forget all of our blessings. You are one of my many blessings.
As I have said repeatedly, “Newcomers saved me!” We will turn our many “udder cheeks”
and mooove on until we are told differently. Trust me when I say Donna and I have
sorely missed all of you, the chatter and laughs, the camaraderie with dear ladies,
and all the fun we have. We hold you close in our hearts until we can hold you in
a great big hug. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday and remember us too.
We all WILL and CAN do this.
