Orchids and Onions: Sunday, December 16, 2018

December 16, 2018

Another beautiful day in Havasu...

Onions to not using my star on top of the clubhouse Christmas tree. I was promised last year and the year before we’d use it. Let’s see how long this current star stays up there. “What goes up must come down!”

Orchids for Carolyn at Walmart, Photo Department. She had so much patience helping with making Christmas cards. So appreciated. We would never have gotten them made without her.

Onions to not getting mail delivered to our home until 7 p.m. Also to getting other people’s packages and mail. Today found someone else’s outgoing mail on my driveway! And packages left at door after dark with no knock or doorbell rang.

Orchids to the kind men who stopped to help us Sunday when our tire fell off on 95 near Kiowa, also to the nice lady in the Big Lots parking lot that gave us the delicious sandwiches from Jersey Mike’s. Others also stopped and asked if they could help. Thank you and Merry Christmas.

Onions to the merchants on Main Street who still do not display any Christmas decorations. Each year a few decorate, but why can’t the others at least buy a couple of strings of lights? They all want to be on the busy section of Main Street, so why not join in and add some holiday spirit? Also hope the city can find the funds to replace their Christmas decorations. Kudos to Hair Productions and Red Onion.

Orchids to Greg, owner of Chicago Automotive, over by MCC. We never worry when you have our vehicle, because we know it’s in such good hands. Thanks so much for fixing the old car. He sure missed it. We love you, P and G

Onions to full time reduced speed limit on S. McCulloch. School is not in session 24/7/365. Why not do reduced speed with flashing lights when school is in session? Speed trap for sure the way the signs are placed.
