Merry Mountain Messenger 12/20/17

Merry Christmas everyone, I certainly hope you have wonderful holidays with family and friends and all that good stuff… I was kind of agonizing about how to see the family in two different locations, which involves driving for me, which I don’t mind but it just seems a little overwhelming now because of various family illnesses etc, however a very close friend of mine, you may have heard of her, it is Jilly, not Milly or Jill but the new girl Jilly, I don’t know what it is about Don Russell hiring all women, except for Scott, Carl and Brutus, and then all the women have to have names with two “L’s”, but that’s not what this is about, suppose a good friend suggests I should spend time with my family “because you don’t have that much time left on earth”, so is that a threat, I mean why would she say that, I mean does she really think I’m that old, I mean, I don’t know what to do… anyhow it won’t affect our friendship of course, we are really good friends… I think… Well the point of all this is to wish you a very Merry Christmas enjoy the rest of year right up to New Years Eve, and then 2018 here we are…. and most of all spend time with your family and loved ones while you can. — Call Jilly with your New Years Day Happy New Year Ad… Irene have you taken care of the Will?
