Given this is my first column of the New Year, I thought I would make this effort more interactive.

Getting you, the reader, involved with the random words selected for this space gives me an opportunity to explore the infinite crevices of your

As we explore our mind fields together, I invite you to join me in the opening of my brother’s Christmas box which I just found. Apparently, I hid it from myself due to its early arrival, but, forgot where I put it until today. Since Christmas has passed, and all of the lights and ornaments are put away until December, I feel wrong opening this Christmas gift box without anyone around.

LocaLLy operated. began adding blueing agents to detergent earlier in the century. Blue tends to absorb yellow light. By adding a very slight blue tinge to whites, the yellow light wavelengths are absorbed instead of reflected, making whites appear less yellow and therefore whiter. More recently, optical brighteners have replaced blueing. Optical brighteners absorb ultraviolet light and change it to blue light. The blue light helps to cancel out the yellow light, making whites whiter. While your clothes will indeed look whiter, they may in fact appear to be slightly bluer.” Excuse me while I go rinse my mouth out with Tide. This should work out well as our high school colors in Oil City were blue and white. Diller Dillies The following one-liners were sent to me by Rev. Jimmy, a reader who assures me these were from the comedic mind of Phyllis Diller. We will seek verification when we stop laughing. Whatever you may look like, marry a man your own age. As your beauty fades, so will his eyesight.

Here we go. Are you ready? Do you have time?

Housework can’t kill you, but why take a chance?

I am now opening the $15.25 postage paid box weighing about the same as two cans of Joan of Arc kidney beans. The box was sent December 18, 2013, from Monterey, Virginia 24465, headquartered in Highland County, the little Switzerland of Virginia.

Cleaning your house while your kids are still growing up is like shoveling the walk before it stops snowing.

The red, white and blue Priority mail label seems lost with the black and white USPS tracking # bar code that looks like a bad day at the wallpaper shop. In fact, there are three separate bar codes affixed, making this gift recipient wonder if his big brother hit all the bar codes in Monterey before mailing this over-priced, under-weighted box. I am now ripping the dried Scotch tape from the sides of the box, not violently, but with some degree of authority. Knowing my brother has reused a box previously mailed to him, I am now ripping off his cover-up label to see the original sender. Just as I thought. The original box was sent from the customer service department of an unidentified store in Taylor, Michigan 48180, but the label was printed in Canada.

A smile is a curve that sets everything straight. The reason women don’t play football is because 11 of them would never wear the same outfit in public. Best way to get rid of kitchen odors: Eat out. A bachelor is a guy who never made the same mistake once. I want my children to have all the things I couldn’t afford. Then I want to move in with them. Most children threaten at times to run away from home. This is the only thing that keeps some parents going. Aim high, and you won’t shoot your foot off. Any time three New Yorkers get into a cab without an argument, a bank has just been robbed. We spend the first twelve months of our children’s lives teaching them to walk and talk and the next twelve telling them to sit down and shut up. Burt Reynolds once asked me out. I was in his room.

Shall I proceed or call the border patrol?

You know you’re old if your walker has an airbag.

Not seeing a show of hands, I will continue.

I’m eighteen years behind in my ironing.

The cardboard ripped flawlessly, with the sounds of dead trees screaming. All flaps are now open. I see a cover sheet of 8 by 10 typewriter paper, with a red Sharpie fine tipped cursive greeting of “Merry Christmas Jim“, underlined, and followed by a “Lew & Gretta“, underlined with a swirl depicting some degree of royalty. I am now lifting the typewriter paper. Remember when we called it that? Now we call it copy paper. Seems wrong. We were taught never to copy, although I did use more than three consecutive words in some of my college term papers, without proper footnoting. Shall I turn myself in? I am now back to lifting the typewriter paper. I would scream right now, but I am unable to see the unwrapped gifts because of the AIRplus packing bags covering the items.

What I don’t like about office Christmas parties is looking for a job the next day. The only time I ever enjoyed ironing was the day I accidentally put gin in the steam iron. I’ve been asked to say a couple of words about my husband, Fang. How about short and cheap? His finest hour lasted a minute and a half. Old age is when the liver spots show through your gloves. My photographs don’t do me justice - they just look like me. There’s so little money in my bank account, my scenic checks show a ghetto. I admit, I have a tremendous sex drive. My boyfriend lives forty miles away. My cooking is so bad my kids thought Thanksgiving was to commemorate Pearl Harbor .

I am now removing the AIRplus bags, manufactured by STOROpack, one by one. I notice these bags, imprinted with Reduce, Reuse and Recycle also list customer service toll free numbers for USA East, USA West, Europe, and Asia.

My mother-in-law had a pain beneath her left breast. Turned out to be a trick knee.

For further info, go to www.storopack.com, to see the assorted sizes and shapes of bagged international air.

I asked the waiter, ‘Is this milk fresh?’ He said, ‘Lady, three hours ago it was grass.’

I am now at the gift area of the box. I see two books. Gift One: OUTLAW–Waylon, Willie, Kris and the Renegades of Nashville, by Michael Streissguth, author of Johnny Cash: The Biography. Gift Two: The Book of Totally Useless Information by Don Voorhees. I am now screaming with holiday glee. GLEE, GLEE, GLEE! Sorry to startle you, but, I really like useless information. So much is made of worthwhile information that I like to explore the not-so-important questions of life. Shall we take a peek? Give me a page number, please. Okay, I heard a lady in Ledgewood say “page 48“. “How do certain detergents make ‘whites whiter’, and what is blueing?” According to Mr. Voorhees research, “Most clothes detergents get your whites clean. However, white fabrics tend to yellow with age. They can be perfectly clean and still appear yellow. To make clothes appear whiter and brighter, manufacturers

Tranquilizers work only if you follow the advice on the bottle - keep away from children.

The reason the golf pro tells you to keep your head down is so you can’t see him laughing. You know you’re old if they have discontinued your blood type. Remembering Seattle Street Names After almost forty years of getting lost in Seattle trying to get out of it, a friend suggested a sixword phrase, which I shall paraphrase so as not to offend some readers who may not appreciate the original. Regardless, the results are the same. By remembering this six-word phrase, you will know the sequence of the twelve street names which you may need one day to facilitate your escape from the Emerald City. Jolly Commuters Make Seattle Useless Parking. The first letter of each word represents the first letters of the Seattle downtown streets, from south to north. Jackson, Jefferson, Columbia, Cherry, Marion, Madison, Spring, Seneca, University, Union, Pike and Pine. Make up your own phrase and get lost even less! Let me know what you come up with.

Letters to the Editor Editor, Thank you for your beautiful and apropos Christmas cover December 19-25. It must take a lot of courage to express your beliefs when so many little grinches keep gnawing away at the core meaning of Christmas. Emmy Beagle, Langley

Editor, As human beings, every day we try to think of ways to put ourselves in another person’s shoes. How does it feel not having enough money to pay for rent, food or to keep the utilities on for one more day? It’s difficult to imagine not having the basics on a daily basis, let alone during the holidays. These are everyday thoughts for many families in our community, which is why Tree of Hope was created. Soroptimist International of Oak Harbor (SIOH) held our Annual Tree of Hope Christmas celebration for children on Saturday, December 21, 2013. “Tree of Hope” (TOH) started as a Venture Club project in 1987 and was adopted as a SIOH program in 2008. It was created so ALL children in our community would have special Christmas memories. No one ever imagined how this project would evolve or how many children’s lives it would touch. It is now the largest service program on Whidbey Island and has provided special Christmas memories for over 16,000 children. Each year, Tree of Hope gathers applications from qualifying individuals and distributes these names to community members, who then purchase and wrap gifts for an individual child or family. Gifts are collected, verified, and organized by volunteers, and distributed at the annual Tree of Hope Christmas Party. Volunteers contribute approximately 1,500 hours of service each year to make this a memorable Christmas for every family. Tree of Hope 2013 was our largest program ever, with 425 families and over 950 children. And although Christmas is not about the presents, it is the time when we create some of our most precious memories with family and friends. Each year we receive thank-you cards and tearful hugs from parents who don’t have any more to give, many of whom would not have been able to provide anything for their children at Christmas without this program. “Tree of Hope week” would not be a reality if the Oak Harbor Church of Christ had not opened its doors to us for the past 7 years. What we used to do in only one night has turned into a week-long stream-lined work of beauty. We absolutely couldn’t pull off a project of this magnitude without their continued generosity! Thank-you to every business and individual who participated through sponsorship, wrapping or organizing donated presents and monetary donations. Thank you to the 50 OHHS students who volunteered; Whidbey General Hospital, Technical Services, Oak Harbor School District, United Methodist Church, First Reformed Church and the City of Oak Harbor who each sponsored over 50 children again this year; Coldwell Banker Koetje, Whidbey Island Bank, Windermere, Crescent Harbor Elementary, Soroptimist International of Coupeville and the South End sponsored over 20 each; Toy collections by Bayside Tattoo, Waste Management and SICBA. And the list goes on; Wal-Mart Manager Jeff McMahan selected Tree of Hope and Toys for Tots to participate in the “Fill the Truck” operation at their store and Lee of Oak Harbor Signs even donated a new TOH banner!

Special thanks to the Craig McKenzie Team who donated their moving vans for all 3 weekends, enabling us to collect over 2000 toys, food & clothing.

Meanwhile, I’ll keep GrowlerNoise.com airborne and take pictures of OLF Coupeville flight operations.

Close your eyes and imagine a church filled with rows and rows of Christmas presents sorted and bagged for each family by Santa’s elves and then there’s Santa who fits us into his busy schedule to make it a perfect day! Can you see it? It’s enough to take your breath away and makes us thankful we live in such a generous community! If you need an injection of Christmas spirit, volunteer next year to sponsor a family and experience first-hand the magnitude of this wonderful service project. If you would like more information on the Tree of Hope program, send an email to siohtreeofhope@gmail.com.

Thanks to the generosity and support of our local community we are able to continue our mission “to improve the lives of women and girls through programs leading to social and economic empowerment.” The community spirit we see every year is why we love this service project! Thank-You Whidbey Island! Rose Freitas & Cheri English Co-Chairs ~ Tree of Hope Program 2013 Soroptimist International of Oak Harbor

Editor, Recently, the U.S. Navy held 3 EIS Scoping meetings on EA-18G Growler ops. At the Oak Harbor meeting, unquestionably the First Amendment rights of freedom of speech, of the press, of peaceful assembly, and of redress of grievances were upheld for all. Both pro-Navy folks and Citizens of the Ebey’s Reserve (COER) presented NAS Whidbey Island’s Commanding Officer, Captain Nortier, with packets of information while media representatives from the area watched. Many thoughtful conversations were held and comments submitted to Navy representatives about EA-18G flight operations. I repeatedly stressed in my comments plus submitted a petition with over 1,600 signatures that asked in part, “What exactly an alternative OLF would cost”. With current difficulties around OLF Coupeville, costing is critical. Bob Wilbur, in one of his better COER writing sorties alleged there is a “comparatively nominal cost and inconvenience of moving the OLF”. Once the Navy provides costing for a new OLF, this debate becomes financial instead of just rhetorical. Quite frankly, as a Skagitonian, if Central Whidbey gets a new OLF to ‘save Ebey’s Reserve’ – Skagitonians arguably deserve at least two brand new bridges since tens of thousands of Americans who need to get across the Skagit far outnumber and are at higher safety risk with outdated bridges than relatively few Central Whidbey residents encroaching on America’s OLF. It’s called setting priorities based on cost effectiveness and I will use my 1st Amendment rights to declare a grievance not knowing the costing of OLF alternatives or mitigation as I stick up for America’s VAQ Wing. In the final analysis, COER is upset fellow Americans who through some fault of their own, some fault of bad land use policy wondering if the OLF can be moved or if they have to. Conclusively, I sincerely hope my Island County Commissioner friends will please improve the noise disclosure around the county’s airfields in the interim until the Navy’s EIS is finalized in 2016. Per an official NAS Whidbey Island document, “OLF Coupeville is ideal ... due to its remote location and low ambient lighting. It more closely replicates true landings aboard an aircraft carrier.” Our troops risking their lives for human freedom and our military families who gallantly sacrifice deserve absolutely no less than a quality training environment from America for our Navy community. As such America deserves noise disclosure and land use policies of the highest quality for NAS Whidbey Island from Island County Government – and costings of OLF Coupeville alternatives plus mitigation strategies from the Navy.

Langley Main Street Association and Callahan’s Firehouse in Langley invite everyone to start off the New Year with a treasure hunt. The Sea Float Scramble will be held at Langley’s Seawall Park off First Street on Saturday, January 4 at 11:00am. Glass artist Callahan McVay has created oneof-a-kind glass sea floats that will be hidden near Langley’s waterfront. People are invited to scramble for one once the ribbon is dropped. It’s fun for all ages and the event is free. You may go home with your own glass treasure. All sea floats will be hidden in plain sight, no digging necessary. You can see the glass floats in front of Callahan’s Fire House. Enter the contest to guess the correct number of floats on display and win half the entry fee money collected. Each entry costs $1. The other half of the entry fees will be donated to the South Whidbey High School Art Program. Second prize will be a $100 gift certificate to Callahan’s Fire House. Third price is a free entrée at The Braeburn. The winners will be announced at the Sea Float Scramble. After the scramble, participants are invited to enjoy Langley, have lunch at one of the award winning restaurants, visit the new bakery, or warm up with tea, coffee or cocoa and peruse the many small shops in town. Also, stop by Callahan’s Firehouse on Second Street and blow your own glass piece and see how the floats were created. For more information, contact Langley Main Street Association at (360)929-9333 or mainstreet@whidbey.com. You can also “like” Langley Main Street on Facebook. For more information on the artist, please contact Callahan at (360)221-1242 or visit www.callahansfirehouse.com [Submitted by Langley Main Street Association]

Island County Commissioner Helen Price Johnson Takes WSAC Reigns Island County Commissioner Helen Price Johnson was sworn in as President of the Washington State Association of Counties (WSAC) during their 107th Annual County Leaders Conference in Vancouver, WA last month. During her brief remarks, Commissioner Price Johnson told her peers, “I am truly honored to be stepping into this position with the Association. Thank you for trusting me to represent Washington State’s Counties as your incoming president.” Created in 1906, the Washington State Association of Counties (WSAC) is a voluntary, nonprofit association serving all of Washington’s 39 counties. A non-partisan organization, WSAC represents Washington’s counties before the state legislature, the state executive branch, and regulatory agencies. WSAC members include elected county commissioners, council members and executives from all of Washington’s 39 counties. Commissioner Price Johnson told county elected officials that “To truly govern and move our communities forward, we must find our common ground. Washington Counties have come together to address common challenges over the past 106-year history of our organization. Our diversity is our greatest strength, if we can continue to hold true to that core value of collaboration.” Commissioner Price Johnson reiterated her commitment to her own community, “Island County has been my home most of my life and I ran for public office because I love my hometown and want to create a positive future for my community.” BITS ‘N’ PIECES

still talking By Eileen Brown

“Someday I’ll be able to sleep in on Christmas.” Sound familiar? Well, folks, it’s not all it’s cracked up to be. I’ll tell you why. The place is as still as a mortuary and it does me no good to fake being asleep. My son’s old cat, Pixie, the house guest who never leaves, knows my breathing and can tell I am awake. She is hungry and doesn’t care that it’s only 4:30 Christmas morning. Now that I am awake, I feel oddly lonely for the old suspense, smells and sounds that only come when there is a child in the house. Like the morning my boy discovered a Green Machine in the living room. It was in my office on base for weeks while waiting for the lieutenant to put on the wheels. That memory is still fresh over 30 years later. Pixie decides to return to her bed and saunters back to the guest room. Like most people who have spent a good deal of time alone, she will study a situation and stand on the perimeter, waiting for a result that suits her purpose. When she returns for the next chewing out, she will mean business. As I got to my feet I thought of the people who would be gathering later that day. In a few hours, sons and daughters, grandchildren and step-parents would continue the tradition of sharing steaming bowls of delicious food, laughter and when the table is cleared, talk about books and how, with a book, you are never alone. I was undecided about what to say to my beautiful granddaughter by marriage, except that the world globe she loves is but a token

Here she is now. “Would you like a cookie?” As I thank her, standing before me, tall and beautiful, well-mannered and obviously loved by many, I am reminded of how it felt to discover new things every day. Thank you for reminding me of how much fun it is to reclaim feelings I thought I had no further use for. Not everything is as it seems. Ask Pixie. An empty bowl can be filled when no one is looking. It’s a good thing to “reward” seniors for the years they’ve lived and what they pass on to the next generation. Meditating on the discoveries of my morning, I feel like Columbus on discovering the New World. It would be a shame not to share this euphoria with a couple of friends who are still sleeping. There’s a wonderful play being performed on our life stage. We must open our eyes before the performance can begin. A locomotive, perhaps? Last week it was starfish. This week it’s a boring machine. The subterranean plot thickens. Big Bertha is the affectionate name given to a very large boring machine churning under downtown Seattle. When completed, a new tunnel will whisk drivers away from the congestion above ground to the congestion underground. The old Alaskan Way viaduct has construction engineers worried. Even though it has been reinforced, can it possibly withstand the Big One or pancake in an earthquake as did the double-decker freeway in downtown Oakland? Had you heard all work is stopped? Something is blocking the path and folks are perplexed. Care to guess what might STILL TaLKINg

ChiCken little and the astRologeR By Wesley Hallock

Dear Astrologer, Your column is great! I look forward to reading it each week. I’ve always read my daily horoscope in the newspapers, but you take astrology to a whole new level. Rather than a question, can I ask you to just look at my data and tell me about whatever pops out at you? A Horoscope Junkie Born August 5, 1956, at 7:16 P.M. in Medford, Oregon Dear Horoscope Junkie, You are in stormy waters. Career woes are making big waves, and your marriage is taking them over the bow. Similar to what happened to you in the first half of 2009. If you made it through’09, you’ll make it through this, but you’ll need all your connubial seamanship to do it. The gale warning extends through the first half of 2015. Dear Astrologer, I was a temporary guest in the home of my daughter and her husband over the holidays. I was pleased that the two seemed genuinely glad to have me around, until they suggested I give up my apartment to come live with them. Their invitation stirred up many uncomfortable feelings for me.

Dear Old But Spry, The story of your life as I read it in your planets is chock full of twists, turns and reversals. You are an optimist, and no wonder. You’ve been up and down more times than Mary Magdalene’s knickers and lived to tell of it. I see your daughter and her husband written into your life in bold print. I see you happier with them, by far, than anywhere else you could be. I predict springtime will find you living with your children and happy to be there.

The reason you are put off by the thought is your unhappy experience of your own parents. The sooner you stop projecting those images onto your future, the better, spry one. You’re embarking on a completely new chapter of the story that is you. So get packing, and don’t forget an extra change of knickers. Dear Astrologer, Beginning as a young girl, the only thing I ever wanted from life was to be married. I was reading romance novels at twelve, earned my degree in marriage and family therapy by twenty-five and knew exactly what I wanted in a man. I married at twentyeight, thinking I had found him. Now, some twenty-two years later, I wonder at my choice. We say and do all the right things to keep the marriage going, but the essential spark between us is not there. Strangely, I feel fulfilled by the marriage, yet unfulfilled by the man. Much as I hate to say it, I can only think I mistook love for the excitement of a “project” on whom to practice my counseling skills. The CHICKEN LITTLE

Dear Worried, All those years spent burrowing ever-deeper into the matrimonial Cracker Jack box, expecting to find Mr. Right, only to pull out Mr. Project. Why? A woman’s man-compass is her Jupiter. The type of man that excites her is a direct reflection of her Jupiter. Your Jupiter is somewhat flabby. Better not to undress him with the lights on. And that’s the kind of marriage he put you in. Is the trash out? Is the cat in? Good night, dear. Do not fret. A flabby Jupiter can be toned up. You’re doing it, have been doing it since age twelve, when you studied Harlequin novels to see how many ways love can go astray. Beneath his sweats, your Jupiter’s biceps are bulging as you direct his transformation into a buff triathlete. In light of this, your “strange” fulfillment is strange no more. It’s your Moon whispering, “attagirl,” to you as you put your pudgy Jupiter through his paces, telling you that you’re earning cosmic IOUs good for the full-bliss version of Jupiter next time around. If it’s a Chippendale with a library card whom you want, you will have him. This does not make you shallow. You’ve made the most of what you had to work with in this life. You are a blazing example of spiritual evolution at work. Good job. Dear Astrologer, In 2014 I’m turning over a new leaf. After many years spent talking to my inner child, taping affirmations to my bathroom mirror and venting my emotions by writing letters I never intended to send, I’m done. I’ve cleared my bookshelf of self-help books and declared myself healed. I’m a better person for having done those activities, but I don’t feel the need to do them anymore. My new motto is going to be, “I am what I am.” STILL TaLKINg

be holding them up? How about a steam engine (trains were used extensively on Seattle’s waterfront) or a boiler? How about Jimmy Hoffa in a boiler? If it’s a boulder, they can dig at it manually to break it up. Otherwise, it’s back to Plan B. They were sort of hoping you, gentle readers, would have a suggestion. Workers at the fortune cookie factory have run out of cheeky sayings. It’s for the greater good, for pete’s sake. Do we need to know? If you held tickets for the drawing with the big cash prize pulled last Sunday afternoon, I hope you were lucky. If you didn’t get the big one ($1,000), perhaps you won $100. There were three such prizes, and the winners were named but for their privacy, we are not including their names here. Still, some in the crowd of 70 or so people standing in the rain outside the Island County Historical Society museum in Coupeville object that the winner and her friend were not named. That didn’t seem right. It’s a small town and your business is my business. Or so some feel. When I moved here in 1974, we were on a party line. Pick up the phone to place a call and if you hear people talking, be polite and hang up. In an emergency, ask them to renew their call a bit later. Grumbling aside, I did hear a winner of a $100 prize turned around and donated his win to Gifts from the Heart local food bank. His blessings are just getting started. Steady as she goes Being a Navy wife takes a lot of grit on special days such as Christmas. Everywhere you look, daddies play with their children and couples hold hands.

Do you see something in my personal timetable to account for this? Been There, Done That Born June 23, 1963, at 4:31 P.M. in Riggins, Idaho Dear Been There Done That, The dawn of the self-help movement coincided with the discovery of the comet Chiron. Your inner child dialogues were thus moderated by Chiron. At any time in those inside child chats, did you sense a formidable presence? An invisible something, vague but definite, overseeing the proceedings as you had it out with your brat? That was Chiron, priest king of the Centaurs, mentor of Jason and Hercules, half-man, half-horse and half-brother of Zeus. Choose your words carefully, and raise your hand before speaking. He has a soft spot for children. A full cycle of Chiron through the zodiac is roughly fifty years. Your awakening to declare yourself no longer an emotional cripple came at age fifty. What does that tell you? As a graduate student of personal healing, you should see there the answer to your question: The gnarled hands holding your life’s timetable are Chiron’s. You now are a Chiron initiate, a Phase One graduate of the most rigorous boot camp in the universe, planet Earth. Change your skivvies and line up for Phase Two. Given that you have a motto, you must now defend it. Your spouse, your boss, your government, the neighbor’s pit bull and your inner Chicken Little will all nip little pieces out of you, hoping to scare you away from what you are. Stand your ground, and remember that cowards die a thousand deaths. So it is written in your timetable. Happy New Year, and enjoy your new leaf! Nine out of ten people can’t answer the question, “Are your sleepless nights sleepless because the sky is falling, or because Saturn is doing the Watusi with your Moon, again?” Don’t be one of them. Send your questions, along with your date, TIME and place of birth (as listed on your birth certificate) to Wesley at planetbiz4u2@gmail.com. It’s fun and it’s free. You’ll also sleep better.

to friends online, included the link to the aircraft carrier. The commanding officer, Captain Robert S. Roth, reassures families that crew members, delighted to have passed the halfway mark in their cruise several weeks ago, are nonetheless working tirelessly to keep the mighty warship and air wing operating safely. Those who work on an aircraft carrier in the middle of an ocean miss their families just as much as the home-bound. Morale skyrockets when a package arrives from home containing everything needed to decorate a shop door for the holidays. “It’s wonderful to walk around the ship and see your Sailors and Marines full of the holiday spirit,” Roth writes. “Sailors wore Santa hats while bringing loads of mail and packages on board and the Supply Department hosted an extraordinary meal that left everyone stuffed.” The Religious Ministry Department hosted a Christmas Festival of Lessons and Sacred Music, a concert featuring two of the ship’s choirs singing Christmas carols and several Sailors reading Scriptures. Roth said it was so well received, there was an an encore performance. The aircraft carrier has its own version of American Idol and many talented singers compete for best vocalist. Popular mainstream bands often will fly aboard a carrier to play for the crew. This time it was the band Mockingbird Sun performing on the flight deck during a steel beach barbecue. When the fun is over, it’s back to the job at hand. Roth thanks everyone back at home for their support and sacrifices. “We are deeply blessed to have you as the source of our strength in our service.” Write to me at stilltalking2009@yahoo.com
