The Gingerbread NightmareWritten by Valerie Garner
Continued from page 1
Whew….new day, it’s a wonder what a little sleep will do ya. Now we make hard frosting that will act as glue to hold pieces of house together, time to build. Time for fun to begin, boy are we ready!
We begin assembling house, and half roof piece breaks in two on one of houses. On second house, we find pieces to not match correctly. On a third house, we overcome all these first two obstacles, and now have great difficulty getting props to hold house together while “glue” dries, and it’s repeatedly falling apart and causing oldest child to have a temper tantrum in frustration (mom too). Somehow through this fiasco, we end up with 1 viable house. (The others became, hard dog biscuit type things for family pet). Oh well, she needs her Christmas goodies too, right? We frosted house and each child decorated half. The end result? A $75. UGLY gingerbread house that only a grandma (with apologizes from mom), would take and not be too insulted by. But, we did accomplish one of our goals….it was a memory. A memory we fondly call “The Gingerbread Nightmare”.

Mouth Wide Open!Written by Jim Henderson

As with any right, there always those who abuse it. You can easily recognize them because they are usually ones who are first to scream that their rights have been violated. They do this just after they have violated someone else’s rights. Some people ought to keep their mouth shut, it’s just not constitutional to tell them that.
All through history, there have been those who have attempted to impose restrictions on any view that is contradictory to their own by any means necessary. But that’s enough about tyranny and oppression, otherwise known as institution of marriage.
While right to free speech is guaranteed by constitution, ability to say something intelligent, however, is not.
