November 28th

Food For Thought

I have mixed feelings about Thanksgiving leftovers. My first inclination is to reach for two slices of soft, white bread, mayonnaise, and crisp lettuce leaves and construct that turkey sandwich that sends me, almost as stuffed as was the turkey, off to bed and some wild dreams brought on by too much whipped cream on all three kinds of pie.

Walkin'

Recently I detailed how I came across a skeleton in the dank basement I worked in as part of my duties of publishing the town’s newspaper. Much was fact, but not all; the reader is left to tease out the truth from the fiction. I also related how there was a dearth of suspects in my murder mystery. Heading east on Main Street, the manager of the Legion was ruled out as being too honest. Passes were also given to the owner of the hardware store and her long-time clerk for being too guileless.
Working west, however, Bob of Bob’s Garage could be the culprit.

Hawk Talk

Since Thanksgiving was last week, I have a lot of things I’m thankful for.
One is by the time this story is out, I will have come back from Miles City, Mont., with my cousin Robin after we celebrated my mom’s 90th birthday Sunday, Nov. 25.
I’m also thankful the Iowa Hawkeyes get to play in a bowl game so hopefully they can get rid of the sick feeling that came out of Lincoln Friday as Nebraska shut down Iowa, 20-7.
