Mountain Messenger (Don Thanks) 11/15/17

Next week is Thanksgiving and Don has a lot to be thankful for… his Mom, Irene, Milly, Jill, Carl, Scott, Brutus, Jim, Penelope and me. The other day I was walking Freddy Gingg in the evening as I approached the post office, I heard shouting from across the street right in front of the St Charles church. The words I heard were odd based on the location, something like, “well, they’re our elected representatives, take it up with them”,  I wondered who Don was fighting with now… and lo’ it was Star Mess Reporter Carl Butz, that’s right, the Boss was arguing with the lowly employee… I think the employee may have been winning… Carl may not be an employee, he probably is just getting a free lunch now and then, unless he is the one buying… but I digress. I was talking about Don being thankful, yep he has a lot to be thankful for, his subscribers, whom he loves, in fact the first new subcriber person who calls Milly and tells her, “I am subscribing because Don loves me” will receive a free one year subscription to the Mountain Messenger courtesy of the Prospect. So make that call now 530 289-3262 or email … yeh –  that really is Milly’s email…
