As Reed browsed the various exhibits, McDonald concentrated on the pianos and gave vital information on their condition and worth.

Lyle is so big. How big is it? It's so big that I just noticed that we have a new business in town. Then I find out that they've been there a couple of months...that's how big Lyle is! Anyway I thought I'd share my discovery with you. James and Patrice Archuleta are patrons of "Snail Mail Resale" which is found in the old post office building ("snail mail"...get the connection?) on the corner of 5th and SR14. The business is more of a new-to-you store that contains items such as: clothing (baby too), tools, house wares, collectibles, vintage and antique items, (that's the "resale" part). They take items on consignment and have a bit of any and everything. Hours are from 10:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday thru Saturday. It's worth a stop in to say howdy and browse a bit. They want you to know that they will be open for Trick or Treaters on Halloween!
Even though we are experiencing our favorite TV shows being pre-empted to air presidential debates and are being inundated with commercials from both parties, I truly hope that you will use your personal political privilege by stepping forward and expressing your opinion. This is a significant year that will determine our nation's future, so whatever your preference, mark your ballot, sign the envelope and send it in. And yes, one vote can make a difference and voting is an important freedom that hasn't come free.
