We are trying to get the halls decked and it has to be finished before Saturday this week for the Santa breakfast.
Folks will be taking pictures, as they are invited to do, with their own cameras. The stockings are being hung by the chimney with care in hopes that Saint Nicholas soon will be there.
The breakfast with Santa will take place on December 8, beginning at 8 a.m. and serving through 10:30 a.m. As I wrote just recently, some of best cooks in the neighborhood use 30 or more pounds of flour to make melt in your mouth biscuits. Milk gravy will be made with the drippings from the bacon, sausage, ham, and bologna we will fry up brown. We will fry Granny Smith apples and serve Mamaw Mable’s chocolate gravy, along with scrambled eggs by the dozens, and milk, orange juice, soda, and hot coffee to wash it all down.
The price for the breakfast is $7 for adults, and $3 for kids. This meal is a Christmas tradition in our community and you are invited. Heart healthy vegan options will be made available if you let us know you need them.
I will also mention again that we now have Wi-Fi. We also have a playground and a walking track.
I heard in the news about the current trouble in Paris, France. The blue-collar working class is raising cane for a better situation. The rebellion and rioting are said to be fueled by economic and social distress and unrest.
Fuel costs are scheduled to rise again in France and some of the people are calling for the impeachment of President Emmanuel Macron.
It is hard to believe the city streets I walked without fear, now a few weeks later, are ablaze with burning cars and broken store windows.
While I was visiting there I was told the people in France would strike often when things were not right for the working class. I greatly admire that and was reminded of the UMWA strikes of the past. I am wondering what will be the end result of the present unrest and rioting there.
While I conversed with a man who worked the front desk in the hotel we stayed in, he told me “America’s President Trump is old and crazy. Our President Macron is young and crazy. They are both crazy!” I raised my eyebrows and just said, “Do you think so?” If they are trying to impeach Macron they do probably think that.
Weekly Quote: If you could only sense how important you are to the lives of those you meet; how important you can be to the people you may never even dream of. There is something of yourself that you leave at every meeting with another person. — Fred Rogers
