In response to reader complaint here is some philosophy. Lets all remember that as a person grows older they soon see that unless theyre careful, life at times degenerates into merely acquiring facts as opposed to collecting experiences. The first results in a frequency of misplaced information. The later, collecting experiences is usually followed by moments of joy. Along the way friends seem to be lost more frequently than acquired. And one passion soon recedes to periods of rebalances. In turn, memories of unhappy states are soon lost as a person learns that the importance of living is pleasurable collections of remembrances. HUH? Lets remember to send Joe Ecclisine cards showing that we wish him well and also send cards to Wilda Carson telling her we valued knowing husband, Robert. Let us pray for their familys peace and comfort. News bites... Ricks Place was filled to capacity Sunday night with waiting customers. The Willsboro Senior Marching and Chowder Society was there in full regalia along with other long time Willsboroians and a contingent of Essex folk. The Do Nuttin Club received front page coverage in the Press (probably because of an exceptionally slow news day) but before anyone could buy a paper, someone bought all local copies. Hisses and boos for the person who was supposed to pick up Wes Vanderhorst who waited in the rain for the promised ride to church which never materialized. Regrets to Bee Gerick for misspelling her name. Did you hear that Buckwheat is changing his name to Twinkle Eye? In Elizabethtown one of their concerned citizens was concerned that he would be identified as a concerned citizen. The Christmas lights are up and some, like retired persons are working. Essex Initiatives will begin a three day Christmas season celebration on November 30th. The annual Town Hall Xmas Tree decorated by seniors is being erected. Finally, in true Christmas spirit, the use of the personal pronoun I does not exist anywhere else in this weeks missile. Go in joy.
