I have been away from these pages for a while, reading other columnist, but I do have a few things on my mind today.  I couldn’t resist, as we used to say, “taking pen in hand!”

Obviously, I don’t have to tell readers of this newspaper that it has been an eventual few years. Like most of you, my sweet wife and I were impacted by the COVID shut down in 2020. Everything came to a halt.  We were short of paper towels and important bathroom products like most of you. But we survived.

Thank you for reading!
