Good morning and Happy Thanksgiving to each of you! Most of us have a whole lot to be thankful for; homes, food, heat, water, friends, family and good health, just to name a few. I hope you all are just where you want to be this holiday and that you have a terrific day.

Plenty of turkeys have found their way onto platters today, however I know of three that are still getting into my flower beds. They were all babies this summer and I am wondering if maybe they think they are dogs. They like to follow you around and talk to you if you will strike up a conversation with them. They have a pen and a nice place to roost at night, but they fly over the fence at day break and wonder the yard. They and I may have too come to an understanding next spring if they make it through the winter.

Thanksgiving break at school began yesterday and school will resume on Monday, November 28. Then it will be “welcome back from turkey day!” and students and staff will gear up for the last six weeks of this semester. Actually more like five, but it sure does not seem like it should be that time of the year already.

Tuesday, November 29, the junior high wrestlers will travel to Bayard and I believe that this is their last match of the season. There was no time listed, so please call the school for that information at 436-5262.

Also, on that same date, the One Act students will travel to Hyannis for district competition, no time here either. Good luck and safe travel to you all.

Birthday folks this week include Shane Cochran, Bill Gifford, Trevor Parsons, Genie Evans, Kevin Hostetler, Brensten McGowan and Hope Wurdeman. Happy Birthday!

Congratulations to anniversary couples Mr. and Mrs. Jim Wyatt and Monty Stoddard.

On November 25-27, the Midwest Theater will present “Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children”. It will play on Friday and Saturday at 7:30 pm. and as a matinee on Sunday at 1:30 p.m. This is rated PG13 and is based on the novel by Ransom Riggs.

On Wednesday, November 30, the Midwest will end the month with one of the best musical/plays around, as far as my opinion goes. The Church Basement Ladies “Away in the Basement” is about those wonderful ladies, down in the church basement on the evening of a particular Sunday School program. The year is 1959 and they are finishing up goodie bags for the kids. Then something happens...?? and they are asked to step in and save the day. If you know these ladies at all, you know how interesting this situation could become! They will perform at 2 p.m. and at 7:30 p.m.

The Gering Christmas Parade will travel from 10th & T street to the Gering Civic Center on Friday, November 25 at 6 p.m. and is expected to end around 9 p.m. I think that time is for all of the Santa cookie and more events also.

The Scottsbluff Christmas Parade will be the following evening in the same time frame and will be in down town Scottsbluff. If you would like more information on this one please call 308-765-0599.

This is just for a heads- up. On Saturday, December 3, the High Plains Christmas and Trees Along the Trail will kick-off beginning at 10 a.m.-2 p.m. This is hosted at the Legacy of the Plains Museum and where the action will be.

Well, this is short and sweet, as I have turkey awaiting me. Please send your news to, or call me at 436-7152, or 641-1335. Until next time, relax and have a piece of pie, take care! Barb Cross (Mrs. Rod).
