This, that and why?

Been awhile since I have written a note to the editor. Been thinking a lot lately and so thought I would share some of those thoughts.

My “adopted back deck” youngsters are now young adults. Strange as I look around and watch them as they go through their college years, or their chosen profession. Proud of each of them, and because they are who they are, makes my heart beam with joy, as they come home on breaks. I usually see them, still a hug, kiss, and I love you Grandma. What a neat, well raised bunch of individuals they are. Glad they didn’t tell me some of the stuff they did from the back deck. They are sharing now. Oh my.

Five years ago today — a sad day for families and good friends of two young men that were born and raised in Creston. My why is, why are they still where they are? Our legal system needs to make some changes. So many things were not allowed to be shared, if only. I still think of them each day and hope the time will come that they will be home with family again.  

Trip to Atlantic to see the condo’s — thinking maybe it will be a wonderful deal for Creston. We sure do need housing, and I think things will be okay.

I hope winter is gone. Spent four years in Iceland, and it was warmer here than there.

We have a lot going on in the city. Again, I invite each of you to attend a city council meeting — first and third Tuesday at 6 p.m. We have two new councilpersons, so change I am sure is in the making.

As you all know, I have always been a strong supporter of our high school bowling teams and Coach Pendegraft. They had a good year. Still not many out there watching, but getting better. So, I found a new sport this year — wrestling. Not saying I know anything about the sport, totally confused when I watch those young men out there looking like they are making their bodies go into unnormal positions. It has been an experience to watch them. Coach Frain told me I didn’t need to know what was going on, just to yell, and we all know I can do that.

Guessing this is my calmest letter to the editor. My blood pressure hasn’t been up much lately, which is good for all concerned.

Enjoy spring, if it ever gets here.
