I Like It Here!

I Like It Here!

Earlier this week, my company put on our 25th Annual Night of the Stars for students at Montello Elementary School in Lewiston. This is the night when we recognize the best writers among all students and do it in a glitzy Hollywood style. We have 500+ people from the community attend. My mother, Ann Geiger, has been to everyone over the years. At 91 years, she wouldn’t miss it for anything.

At the end of the event we were having a conversation about her son (me) and how, when I was in kindergarten, I cried every day while being dragged off to school. Out of frustration she finally asked the obvious question, “Why don’t you want to go to school?” My response was, “What’s so wrong with staying at home. I like it here.”

My mother, and all moms, have to deal with the trauma of children growing up. Well, I made it through kindergarten and all the other grades with some dignity, but I still like visit my mother. I like it there.

This weekend, we salute all the wonderful moms who do so much for us. Through all the good times and bad, we love you for your warmth and compassion. It is just what we need when we need it the most!

Happy Mother’s Day!

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1910, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
