I have lived in the Falls since 1968. My great-great grandfather was one of the village founders. I have served the community in multiple ways: Firefighter, various boards and commissions and for many years was president of the Falls Cable Access Corp. Currently I own, and am active in, a restaurant equipment manufacturing company.
Here we go again! The same old routine.
Somehow, this year is shaping up to be a little easier than it has been in the past.
It seems easier now because my kids have all grown up, and they have been merrily sent off on their way to sail the seas of life.
Because of such things, the holidays are a lot easier now for many of us old folks. The obligations of entertaining relatives at family parties has now been shifted to the younger set.
This week's Thanksgiving chores were diminished for us compared with other years. A great Thanksgiving feast organized by my daughter brought all of us together for a great day filled with family fun. What more could be fairer? But wait, there's more!
I actually got the Christmas decorations set up outside this weekend before the big snowfall - unlike some years past. So, bring it on Ol' Man Winter, I'm ready!
