Mountain Messenger History 11/1/17

Mountain Messenger is really a great paper, a really great paper, one one should read. The double one means one (the Mess) one(you) in case it is confusing. I read it every week, plus I put an ad in for the crossword puzzle, if you don’t like to read you at least could do the crossword puzzle, most people can do it more or less easily. Some struggle, I mean it isn’t easy but it isn’t necessarily too hard. The most important thing is it is the oldest weekly newspaper in the world, excuse me, I meant to say California, and also I guess I have to say continuously published newspaper. A lot of people have worked for the Messenger over the many years so you might actually know someone who has worked for the Mountain Messenger. Well, I guess that’s enough information about the Mess. Don’t miss an issue because you never know when Don Russell will write something that is scandalous or salacious and full of truthiness, and it is part of history, you can tell your grand chilldren about the time the Russell wrote something about chickens..

I’m telling you there is something wrong with that woman, or one of the women, not sure which one, Jill or Milly… or that other one…what’s her name….
