Mountain Messenger (happy tofu day) 11/22/17

Ok, it is the day before Thanksgiving and since Thanksgiving is always on a Thursday and the Mountain Messenger is always on the newsstand on Thursday, there is a conflict and Don Russell appealed to the rulers of all holidays to change Thanksgiving to Friday and lost, so the Mountain Messenger is being distributed to all today, and not tomorrow which means the Mountain Messenger, …. you know it is difficult to continuously write the Mountain Messenger, so I am just going to go with Mt. Mess. What was I saying… oh the Mt Mess will be out before the Prospect. Don told me he hopes that you have or had a wonderful Thanksgiving and that you get a subscription to Mt Mess. He also wants your cards and letters to continue to flow into his mailbox, all checks accepted. Pretty soon it will be the Merry Christmas issue, this is the ultimate in editions, along with the 4th of July one… anyhow Merry Xmas issue is special because this is where everyone gets ads wishing other family, friends and foes a very Merry Christmas. But fiirst Happy Thanksgiving and eat vegetables and tofu.

Jim Beard and Scott Schlefstein attempt to school Don on the proper way to cook a Tofu.
