An ostrich and a camel for Christmas this year

December 12, 2014

My old boots have been worn out for some time, and I went to Tip-Top Western Store to get a new pair. I had a pair of ostrich boots that I bought there in 2007, and I wanted another pair of them because they're so comfortable and were long lasting.
Last Cast
The Double Branch Baptist Church will have its drive-through nativity scene beginning at 6 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. You don't want to miss Johnny Baker from Central National Bank riding a camel. Yes, folks. The scene actually has a live camel. I just hope Johnny doesn't wear his spurs! He may become camel food.
