Posted by mcm0704 on August 19, 2015 |

Another week has flown by and here again is Slim Randles as today’s Wednesday’s Guest. This is a thoughtful piece about how folks in small communities look after each other, and I must say it is very true. My friends here in my small town have done a wonderful job looking after me for the […]

Friday’s Odds and Ends
