Happy Birthday to the following: Lindsay Hunt, Abbie Laine, Leo Saari, Ed Hunt, Mary Saari and Margrit Engelson.

I don’t know about you, but I’m wondering if this is really winter? The daffodils are popping up everywhere and I have a few that have blooms on them. Mind you, I’m not complaining about the PUD bill not going up, but it seems strange.

Last week I decided to give myself a treat. While on my cruise in December, I had my first massage ever, and it was wonderful, so I decided to have one closer to home. The Naselle Massage Clinic in Naselle owned and operated by Bryon Parrino was an excellent choice for me. I opted for a full body massage and left there after an hour so relaxed that I made another appointment for the near future. If you are stressed, muscles ache, or just need some relaxing, give him a call. He is wonderful and his prices are extremely reasonable.
