Mid-month news from Anza VFW Post 1873 and it’s Auxiliary

I’ve had folks tell me how much they enjoy reading my articles. But I just realized that I was getting serious instead of being lighthearted. So, I’ll try to get back to the lighter side. Sometimes I have to wrack my brain for something to write about. But other times it just comes to me.

I never imagined writing for a newspaper. I don’t think any of the national papers would be interested in my ramblings. I often read something I think would be interesting. But then I forget where I read it. I’ve been reading the “Chicken Soup for the Soul” books. I wish I put some of it in my articles, but they’re too lengthy.

Guess I’m rambling again. I’ll try to do better next time. Have a good rest of the month and try to stay cool. I’m just grateful I don’t live in the low desert. Of course, that’s a good reason to stay indoors and read.

Remember this – left is loose and right is tight. Remembering this will keep you from tightening the screw or whatever even more.
