Happy Thanksgiving to you all; no high school basketball this week

November 26, 2013

I hope you all have a happy Thanksgiving on Thursday, and be safe in journeying to your respective destinations.
As you read this, I will have already made a journey to Enid for my annual six-month medical check-up and to have Thanksgiving with my mom Monday since she can't be here this week as we had originally intended due to unforeseen circumstances.
By the time you read this column, I will have already left — and possibly arrived — in Poteau as I will be back to work today to put out Wednesday's edition.
