Thoughts - August 4, 2016

"We sat down and told stories that happened to us in our childhood, to our children. They were all basically based on the truth. These stories were funny and poignant to us. They just took off. These are all stories from my life." Howie Mandel
Share some stories with your friends and families today...what a refreshing change of topic - better than discussing politics, work, other people's problems...the weather. Let others know what it was like spending a Saturday in your hometown! In our book, with my 4 siblings, we did this very thing. We had such laughs and memories remembering downtown Buckhannon, WV, circa 1960s....boy, were we craving hot dogs, french fries, DQ, Rainbow Restaurant, Liberty Lunch, GC Murphys...the list goes on -- and our friends from long ago, of course! Today, at our book club, we will listen to stories of Patrick County, shared by Aaron McAlexander. How I love to hear the tales of my friends and neighbors! - Beth Almond Ford
