I am working hard to stay away from political issues but as you know I have failed a few times (At The Whim of My Town) so when Fay Moore, I Want To Be A Writer posted this last week on her blog I just couldn’t resist.
As always Fay, thank you for your perspective and for taking the time to share!
Asklotta and staff will MIND YOUR BUSINESS today in full support of Fay Moore!
President and CEO
Thanks for sharing with your readers. Like you, I don’t consider myself a political animal. However, I love the way of life I’ve grown up with. I want to protect what is good in it for future generations. That is why I spew on occasion. I love my country.
Ditto my friend!
