Saturday is our Childrens Christmas Party at Firehouse

Since it's raining kittens and puppies, if you want to give your kids a break from the monotony take them to the firehouse for the annual kids party with SANTA from 1pm-3pm. Fun, food, games and gift bags for all. Terry Anasopolous is the chair, and as usual she does a wonderful job along with the other Women's Club members.
If you need something uplifting, read the today post. I cried. If you can, be sure to help a family not as lucky as you this year. Any small donation or grab a name off one of the "adopt a kid" trees in Kmart or at The Union, or send a check to animal rescue, or food bank. No matter what your situation, there is someone with more problems than you, which is both disturbing and comforting.
So the forecast is for wind/snow Sunday - Thu. Brace yourself.
Thanks for all the comments to the prior blog about the homeless and dogs. I think we can all agree that there is nothing easy about this economy, and "there but for the grace of God go I."
Everyone out there with no place to live is someones son, daughter, mother, father, sister, brother. It's easy to look away when you pass someone like that, as it is hard to accept and acknowledge the suffering. I now make a point to talk to people I pass that are experiencing hard times, and if I can offer them something, I do so and try to have at least a brief conversation. Look them in the eye, ask a direct question, "are you local" or "where are you from?" I honestly see a change in body english and a raising of the spirit when you acknowledge the humanity, to someone who may be feeling less than human at that moment. Take that time if you can. Thank you.
Shih Tzu factoid: The breed was almost wiped out by the Chinese Revolution. Seven males and seven females were spared. ALL Shih Tzu's alive today are related to those 14 dogs.
