By today, all of your Christmas gifts have been opened. I hope that everybody got what they wanted. Be thankful for all that you have. Football games will be on the air to close out their season. The NFL will be beginning their playoffs soon. The Green Bay Packers have won our division and will represent our conference in the playoffs. Soon snow will be coming and your children can go out on their sleds and play in the snow and build some snowmen. Be careful while driving due to possible ice on the road and be careful of children playing near the road. Some of you will be shopping to find some bargins and to return goods that are too big or small for you. Today is the second busiest day of shopping of the year. Black Friday is the busiest day. Enjoy yourselves, it is later than you think.
Please support the Bay View community.
