Mt. Zion area has enjoyed being out of the deep freeze and enjoyed warmer temperatures, more like we like winter to be.
We had a happy dog in the Mt. Zion area, Belle got to make some snow angels for several days when we had our recent snow. Speck and Petey had a good time recently; but Belle had the biggest smile. Robin and Mabel have another little person in their life.
We wish Gerry Kenny a speedy recovery from his hip surgery.
