On The Bricks

December 15, 2014

Tony Hardman who played Kris Kringle in the Guymon Community Theatre play “Miracle on 34th Street” did a fabulous job. There were others that also did a fab job, but Tony really stood out. As did Cory Schneider as the drunken Santa. He was good enough you imagined the smell of whiskey.

The whole day of Saturday was a treat. The Shutterbugs met and then prepared for their Photography Show and Sale, the carolers began to arrive, the juggler showed up (I just love David McGaughy), the Christmas Parade happened, supper with my son’s family, attending the play with my grandchildren. What a stellar day. Man, I’m glad it’s over, too.

All those who were in the parade deserve a clap. Applause too for the Shutterbugs that put on a wonderful Photo Exhibit. And even more so because they even emptied the trash after using the office. You have no idea how much I appreciate that! And more kudos to all the people who were in the Guymon Community Theater production. Each and every one of you are awesome.

Wanted to give a shout out for those who advertised in the GCT program:

Lumber Mart, Top Dawg Grooming, Aerostitch, Wright and Dale Attorneys, City National Bank, SPC Office Products, Ken Lane State Farm, Fronk Oil, and high Plains Public Radio. Thanks for supporting our community theater. Speaking of supporting the theater, did you see the article JuliAnn Graham from Tri-County Electric wrote in the Oklahoma Living magazine. It was GREAT!

Is your colon getting all tight because you haven’t bought all your Christmas presents yet? Remember, “Happiness doesn’t result from what we get, but from what we give.” Ben Carson said that and it’s true. But that doesn’t mean your grandkids appreciate it much. Get them Main Bucks and then they can go and get what they want themselves. Just a thought …

Or buy a coat for someone that needs to be warmer. Opportunities, Inc., has their Keep ‘Em Warm program going where they take gently used or new coats, hats, gloves, and blankets and give them to those who need them. Drop offs are at Brown and Associates on Main, Stage Store at Northridge, and at Opportunities office at 204 NW 6th. Call 580-338-5388 if you have questions.

Main Street Transformers meet on Dec. 20 at 8 am until noon. Then we are traveling over to see the OPSU basketball teams play. Should be another great Saturday.

Also on Saturday is the Gaggle of Geeks from 1:00 until the games end.

Last suggestion for the column. Send a Christmas card to Chris Liebman, PLLC, PO Box 2055, Guymon. You really need to get on their list somehow because his Christmas cards have a Christmas music CD. Now how cool is that?

“The excellence of a gift lies in its appropriateness rather than in its value,” said Charles Dudley Warner.

See you on the bricks!
