Help For Our Vets

Over the last several years our local American Legion Post 427 has been instrumental in providing transportation to and from Little Rock for our veterans medical appointments. They use volunteer drivers and a van that was bought using GIF funds to accomplish the service. They now find themselves with an old van and no funds available to purchase another, so they can continue this much used and much needed shuttle. So last night, Senator-elect Larry Teague and I attended their meeting and offered our help to orchestrate and donate to a fund raising effort to purchase a new van. We are both strong believers in getting this done and keeping this program running smoothly for the true heroes in our midst. So don't be surprised if we come calling for your help with this project.

As I Was Saying......

Okay I'm back. Adjourning means different things to different folks, and I just took an extended, although I must say, an enjoyable sabbatical from blogging. But now it's time to catch up. Here we go---Summer came and went, it was hot. Hillary and Huck got beat. Razorbacks got thumped, then got better. McCain's VP gamble didn't pay off and Obama gets an opportunity to prove whether he is Clintonesque. SWEPCO got their permit from ADEQ. I beat Evelyn Joyce Bradford again. Phillies win the series, ( I know you don't care-neither do I). That's pretty much it, even though I probably left something out. So it's good to be back and we'll see how it goes from here.
