Mom is still on restriction, unable to drive and do much around the house, and Dad has continued to help her and me out. Now on top of everything, Carlos Jr. has arrived from Florida for an extended visit.  So far he has kept busy playing with Auntie Cassie, Grandpa, typing stories and playing outside.  


If you have news for the column you can get it to me by email at, contact me on my facebook page, by phone at 454-2344 (if I’m not home please leave a message), or dropping off a note at Randy’s Variety for me and Dad will make sure I get it. Until next time, stay safe.
