I wish all of my readers a joyous Christmas, with special blessings on those who have reason to be sad.
Congratulations to Joice and Danny Jenewein on their 59th wedding anniversary, Dec. 30.
T’is the week after Christmas and all through the town
Merchants are busy with Boxing Day crowds,
Wishing Happy New Year to all who come in,
Greeting all comers with a wide happy grin.
Deer and moose are all out at play and
Licking the roads—salt ration that way;
Birds a-plenty fly in to their seed
And squirrels climb up for their share of feed;
Skaters and sledders all out for a thrill
Hoping that no-one will take a small spill.
Daffodils pushing to make us aware—
Days getting longer, spring in the air!
