I was sick with the flu for most of the time between Thanksgiving, but yesterday it came to mind that when I was out I did not see the Salvation Army bell ringers at CVS, Krogers, or WalMart. I give money every time I see a kettle. Please email me a list of companies who banned you from their premises, so that I may write them and also buy my things elsewhere. Hee, hee! Is it wrong after that to say, “Merry Christmas?” Merry Christmas and thank you for brightening every Christmas with your bells and your reminder that giving is Christmas’ heart.
