They say that you can pick your friends but not your relatives. I was lucky when my brother Ed Herrington married Mary Stapley. I got both a sister-in-law and a lifelong friend and, as an added bonus, kinship with the Stapley family. Mary has left us now for her heavenly home this week. I […]
Christmas lights are going up on houses. As the song says, it is beginning to look a lot like Christmas. Restaurants are decorating also.
