I’d like to thank the woman from two days ago at Country Buffet that brought that back brace to us in the car. That was very considerate of you. I didn’t realize she left it there. In fact, I didn’t even see her take it off. Thank you a lot for coming to the car and giving it to us.

Life is not a goal. It’s a trip. Some people are on a short trip and some people are on a long trip. I am on a long trip. Thank God

Brittany, you worked at the Ultra on Taft Street on Saturday morning during a crazy sale. I’ve never seen a grocery store so busy, not even before a blizzard warning! You were helping people at the self check-out and just a FANTASTIC, patient, courteous young lady. From all the people around me who had trouble “scanning” their cabbages, our hats are off to you! I also let a manager know on my way out what a wonderful employee you are.

I don’t know how anyone can complain about the Dinette Set. They are hysterical.

While shopping at Town & Country, I mentioned to the clerk waiting on me that it was my birthday. A lovely young woman, who evidently overheard me, gave me a beautiful bouquet of flowers. That sure made my day.

I take offense to the guy who said, “there is no such thing as a lady anymore.” I am a lady. I dress like a lady, don’t do drugs, tobacco or alcohol. I attend church, work and take care of my family. You just aren’t looking in the right places, buddy.

Of course the atmosphere at the Statehouse is friendlier! There’s a SUPER majority of Republicans in both chambers. They do whatever they want.
