‘‘The other day my wife took her mask off. She’s prettier than I remembered.”

‘‘Loving the eGift card program that Fenton is doing. Bought several hundred dollars of eGift cards and they matched our purchase. This is a great way to help our local businesses. Wish other areas could do the same thing.”

‘‘Many thanks to the Fenton St. John Catholic Church for their beautiful lights. What a joy this season in the midst of COVID. A real uplift.”

‘‘Thank you to the person at Taco Bell on Tuesday Dec. 22 at 11:40 a.m. who paid for our lunch. I’m a veteran and it was much appreciated. Merry Christmas.”

MY WIFE AND I wish to thank Paul who stopped to help us when our car broke down. He waited patiently while I arranged for a tow truck, then gave me a ride home so I could get another vehicle to put our groceries in. We greatly appreciate it. Merry Christmas.

THE COVID RELIEF bill has almost 6,000 pages to it, most of it pork. The National Highway bill signed by Ike had three pages and no pork.

IN REGARDS TO the end speed zone sign on East Holly Road. I went and spoke with the Holly police and they told me that it means 55.

TWO DAYS SINCE it snowed and Fenton main streets are still slippery. It was like this last year too. You leave town and any direction is clear. I think administration is trying to save money on salt.

SOMEONE PLEASE PUBLISH ‘How to be an American for dummies.’

THOSE WHO CONTROL the information, control the population. Don’t believe what you are being spoon fed. Do your own research unless you’re scared of what you might find.

WHERE ARE ALL of those Hot-liners that in the spring complained about the way Owen Road was patched? Obviously, someone knew something they didn’t. Thank goodness, this is not Germany where they patch (dig up the road) every week and repair it.

OTHER THAN BEGGING for federal handouts, Whitmer has done absolutely nothing to get COVID-19 vaccines for Michigan. Oh, and the Michigan Republican leadership has done even less.

HOT-LINER WITH ADVICE on living a long and happy life hit the nail on the head. Plus, making your bed is so important. If you don’t do anything the rest of the day, you did accomplish a task by making it.

WISE WORDS FROM my momma. Be sure to have some friends who are younger than you are. As we all age, there’s nothing more depressing than losing all your friends around the same time.

SAW ON THE news that a 3-second video of a girl saying a racial slur several years ago resurfaced when a person that didn’t like her wanted to get revenge. Kids take note, no more mistakes or it will stay with you forever in social media. How sad.

WHY DO THE same people always feel compelled to give their ‘opinion’ on someone else’s Facebook page? It’s always the same people. Why do they think their opinion matters? We don’t care what you think.

THE MILITARY SENT me where needed, far away from our hometown area. As I read these posts, please remember a very fundamental thing — we win or lose together. Love each other with one thing in mind; a strong foundation is based on tolerance of difference. Try and break ‘plywood.’
