Well, we got through Christmas and now we’re headed to a completely new year. I predict that only good things are ahead of us. This is a community of really good people and we are here to help each other through good and bad times. You all are so amazing, so don’t worry about making resolutions just keep doing the wonderful things you are already doing.
Hugh Shobert from Norman, Okla. was in the Army and stationed at Fort Knox when a friend arranged a blind date for Hugh with Leoma Lawrence who lived and operated her own beauty shop in St. Matthews, near Louisville. They were married by the justice of the peace on Dec. 25, 1945, in Jeffersonville, Ind.
Leoma sold her beauty shop and they drove to Fort Ord in Monterey Bay, Calif. where Hugh was then stationed. Hugh was discharged from the Army, February 6, 1946.

Only three days until Christmas; I hope you are not getting overly tired and stressed out from all of your shopping and cooking. This is a good time to re-think your strategy for your big meal. Maybe you have your Christmas dinner on Christmas Eve, which can also make a bigger rush to get everything done.
