Mountain Messenger (he’s home) 10/4/17

Yep it is true Don Russell is back in town and at his desk. I’m not sure what happened to him in Detroit, we hear his Mommy is doing well, very good news… but for some reason the Don is acting like every day is Wednesday and we are not allowed to address him. I mean normally he is always happy to sit back put his feet on the desk and let Jill, Milly or Penelope do all the work, I don’t even know if he has expressed any appreciation to Jill, Milly or Penelope for managing to produce some scintillating news in his absence. But he is back and we are all happy for that, I think. Meanwhile the world keeps turning, thank goodness. So we will get a taste of Don’s take on life in Sierra County this week, goody goody, can’t wait till tomorrow.

10/4/17 Don looks to his newly appointed body guard Carl Butz for help with the paparazi…(A freelance photographer who doggedly pursues celebrities to take candid pictures for sale tomagazines and newspapers.)
