Joy to the World!....This is Advent Season, the four weeks while we await the day to celebrate the birthday of the Savior."

Congratulations to Bill Dawson, who was married to Aurelia Pirtac in early November. Bill has often returned for visits in Romania, which is one of his favorite countries where he has traveled. He entertained Aurelia in America several times. She is indeed a lovely, well-educated lady who likes his homes in Colorado and Nebraska where he is a medical helicopter pilot.

Hope everyone had an enjoyable Thanksgiving.  Can't think of a better way to spend the day than with family and friends, good food and great weather.

Thanksgiving dinner guests of Denis and Theresa Weber were: Roger, Linda, Nicole, Courtney and Ryan Cochran and Jerry and Quinton Weber. Other than the fact that Linda forgot to bring the desserts she had made for the day and the dog got into the sweet potatoes before they were cooked, they had a great time together.

"And now abide in faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love." I Corinthians 13: 15. This scripture is often used at weddings but I know it is imperative for every day of our lives. Let us love in actions to people around us, not just in words.

Postmaster Luke Vocke and his assistants hosted two days to celebrate that the Eads 

Post office is 130 years old. Besides treats and beverages, people who signed up, won gifts every 15 minutes. When I was there, Cleta (Colvalt) Englehardt came early in the morning from Haswell.

Weekend before last, my sis, Jerene, and I went to Colorado Springs on Saturday to attend the 95th birthday celebration for our Aunt Esther, one of my dad's sisters.  Afterwards, we went to lunch with our nephew, Jason, and his family and our sister-in-law, Donna.  After lunch, Donna, Jerene and I went to Cripple Creek for the afternoon.  We spent Saturday night with Donna and returned home Sunday evening.  A very enjoyable weekend.
