Frankly, I almost never go 'in town' anymore as I am so disgusted with the way it is going downhill as far as maintaining the history goes. Nellie Cashman's is being converted into a B & B by Mr. Goldstein. Toughnut is full of trailer homes and motorcycles, ect.
There is a store on Allen selling predominately political stuff and I don't know what else is down there as I just don't go anymore. Kitty-corner from the Courthouse the owner has been allowed to install a huge modern storage shed in the front yard.
The Pete Spence house has turned into a permanent yard-sale skid row kind of thing and across the street on the curve that building sells gaudy metal yard decorations! We have a huge new Circle K that belongs in Chicago!
I could go on but I am getting to be a whiner the more I think of it.

Bob, it is very nice to hear from you. Thank you for kind words and an invitation to lunch. I shall have to scout out the possibilities with a little more consideration, perhaps less scrutiny.
Hey, Joyce. I haven't been on the boards until recently, so I missed any announcement about an upcoming book. Sorry to hear that the publication is delayed; there's a lot of that going around, alas. I... more
Hello there, Sarah
I think life's concerns out there have kept us all involved elsewhere with all that is going on in this mixed-up world.
My book is being delayed a little but can't be helped ... more
Joyce, I hate to hear about another delay, but understand about the small, local publisher... having been there, done that for many years. Sometimes things just happen... Have you queried the publishe... more
How wonderful to hear from you once again! Thank you for a very nice suggestion. I had not even considered it but it might be helpful. Will talk to my folks.
Thank you again. I do hope you are doing... more
