Visiting the P. Graham Dunn, art, gifts, home decor... store in Dalton, Ohio Nov. 25, 2016 Friday
It is a fascinating store that manufactures and sell woodworking products; much of which is of a patriotic, agricultural, arts and crafty, and religious theme.
The customers are predominantly Mennonite and some Amish - complete with horse and buggies outside. Another great bonus is that the clientele actually dresses appropriately to be out in public. And folks are respectful and polite. Just saying.
It is a really neat store. Almost like an art gallery... Perfect place to visit for someone who maintained his woodworking workshop and radial arm saw in the living room for fifteen years.

Hats off to Hannah Brewer. Ms. Brewer, in her role as Miss Maryland, has done an incredbly great job of representing Carroll County and Maryland. We are so proud of her.
According to this well-written article by awesome Carroll County Times writer, Jacob deNobel, in addition to "her duties as Miss Maryland, the holiday season provides Hannah Brewer with another series of tasks. The nonprofit she runs, Hannah's Heroes, increases production of holiday cards, gifts and care packages to be sent to military members overseas..."
Hannah Brewer attended and made a great presentation for a meeting of the Maryland Troopers Association Lodge # 20. We were quite impressed with her poise, presence and enthusiasm
Respect! Sun. Nov. 20, 2016

Place Martin Luther King 1929 at the corner of Rue Saint Eloi and Rue Herbiere, Rouen, Normandy, France
Place Martin Luther King 1929 - 1968 pasteur amercain, Prix Nobel de la pair en 1964 on the corner of the Temple Saint Eloi at the corner of Rue Saint Eloi and Rue Herbiere, Rouen, Normandy, France. Oct. 26, 2016 Wed
Pay our respects to the French veterans of the First Indochina (Vietnam) War, 1945 - 1954; in Vernon France
Caroline and I took a moment to pay our respects to the French veterans of the First Indochina (Vietnam) War, 1945 - 1954; at the Aux Mort et Disparus de la Guerre d'Indochine Memorial in Vernon, Normandy, France, on the Rue des Combattants d'Indochine. Tues. Oct. 25, 2016.
Tues. Oct. 25, 2016 Vernon, Normandy France - standing at the plane tree that anchored the 2nd floating bridge across the Seine established on Aug. 27, 1944.
Almost 3 months after D Day, June 6, 1944; on Aug. 25, 1944, the British Nottinghamshire Sherwood Rangers Yeoman - Royal Armoured Corps, moved through Vernon to begin operations to cross the Seine.
From Aug. 25-29, 1944 the British lost over 550 men in the operation. Montgomery used the bridge to cross the Seine on Sept. 1, 1944, on his way to Belgium.
According to one guide, "Normandy is a region of northern France. Its varied coastline includes white-chalk cliffs and WWII beachheads, including Omaha Beach, site of the famous D-Day landing. Just off the coast, the rocky island of Mont-Saint-Michel is topped by a soaring Gothic abbey. The city of Rouen, dominated by Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Rouen, is where military leader and Catholic saint Joan of Arc was executed in 1431."

Caroline, Grammy, and I really enjoyed attending The Shepherd's Staff 25th Anniversary Dinner Dance at the Reese Fire Hall. We sat with Del. Haven Shoemaker and his wife. Sitting nearby were folks like Ed and Rebecca Leister, CC School Board member Virginia and Judge Charles Harrison, and Bernardino Jones and his wife. It was good to see Joe and Becki Maurio, Brenda Meadows, Vera Green, Lois and Craig Giles, and many-many others. It was a nice evening for a great cause. Oct. 1, 2016.

Not only is Firehouse Subs a great safe place for firefighters, but for police officers and military veterans as well.
