Mount Morris Matters
A Mother’s Day road trip to Castile
Hope all of you moms had an enjoyable Mother’s Day. My day started with a great breakfast buffet at Lorraine’s Place in Castile. My son Danny and his fiancé Carol thought we would enjoy it there and we did. They live in that area. Her mom, my pal, Helen was with us too.
I got to enjoy two of my breakfast favorites, sausage gravy and biscuits and home made sticky buns, among a nice variety of other dishes and home made baked goods.
We’ll be going back for dinner some day soon. The diet I was on can wait until tomorrow. (Because tomorrow never comes.)
I recently checked out the new Consignment Shop at 66 Main St., Mount Morris, the name of the shop is “Treasure Trove,” the owner/manager is Michael McMillan.
The shop offers a variety of quality merchandise at affordable prices, clothing, including children’s clothing and toys, household articles, and more. They are open from 10 a.m. – 7 p.m. daily, except Wednesday noon – 7 p.m., and Saturday 9 a.m. – 6 p.m. Treasure Trove is accepting consignments. Good luck Michael McMillan in your new business.
Belated birthday wishes to my son, Vinnie Jr., on May 7 and to my brother-in-law, Ray Brock, whose birthday was also May 7th. (different years) Birthday wishes also to Thelma Bailey May 25 and Vicki Blair, May 26.

Words to Ponder: Everything is changing. People are always changing. People are taking comedians seriously, and the politicians as a joke.
