Welcome back to Beason. I would like to continue thanking the D.O.H. for our new pavement. It's been like Christmas every day since we got it.
We've had some interesting comments from Avery lately. I am still wondering when Reader's Digest is going to publish any of them. For example, this morning, Avery got into the pop before school (he's smooth like that). I said, "What are you doing drinking Coke this early in the morning? and he replied, "I needed a quick pick me up." Where does he get this stuff? One never knows what to expect from Avery. He is on a quest to keep life from getting dull.
Brian, Ethan and I were sitting in the living room and we heard a strange sound coming from Avery's room. I jump up and go to his room and say "What are you doing?' and he says, "Hey, can someone decrease the speed on this so I can practice batting in my room?" He kind of seems a little like me, doesn't he?
I heard the new Dollar General Store opened in Pennsboro. I haven't even had a chance to go in yet. My family has, but I haven't. How is that fair? I've had too many meetings, errands to run and a very lengthy "things to do" to be able to do much else. But, I am sure that store will get a chunk of my change when I finally make it there.
I would like to make a request that the weather make a decision. I would really appreciate it if it would either be cold or be warm. Since it is still winter, perhaps it should stay cold for a day or two. My daffodils are a bit confused on what they're supposed to be doing. It's bad enough that I am confused on what I'm doing some of the time. Please don't mess up the daffodils too!
I would like to comment on the Pennsboro Racetrack. I have been told there is some interesting history behind it. I have not been a resident of Ritchie County long enough to know any of it. The only way to find out about it is to ask questions. I do not ask questions to stir up trouble. I ask questions to simply gain some knowledge. From my point of view (without the knowledge of past track information) I see a lot of potential for this county going up in smoke. I find that very sad. Enough said.
Mark February 26th, 2012 on your calendar to be at the Lions Club in Harrisville from noon-6 p.m. It is going to be a gorgeous event for those selling and buying prom gowns. Door prizes, refreshments, and discounts on nail services will be available. Every girl deserves to go to the prom and feel like a million bucks. These dresses are amazing and most have only been worn once or not at all. The gowns are being sold very reasonable and some are even free because they have been donated by the owner. So, if you are in need of a prom gown or know someone who is, this is the event to be at on February 26th. If you have any questions about buying or selling a gown, please feel free to contact me. We appreciate all of the people who have supported us in any way. We especially want to thank the Lions Club for letting us use their building and all the people and businesses that are helping to make this event happen. You all are great and will be making a difference in a girl's life and her memories of the prom. Thank you so much.
See you next week, same time, and same place.
