Happy holidays!

Sorry, I don’t have any holiday-ish photos this year but I thought I’d show you a gift 2020 brought me. (Hint: that’s my leg at right, under the maroon, and yes, her left ear really was cut like that.) In addition to this cat, I have felt lucky to be able to spend time with my mother. I feel closer to my family in general, and I hope you also found surprise joy in the midst of a very difficult year.

I think we all need a great holiday season this year – as best as can be under the circumstances. To that end, we’re giving you a break from municipal news! Who needs to contemplate this serious stuff when the sun is so absent in our lives?

OK, let’s be honest. I’m taking this period off! As I’ve said before, this is the one time of the year when I can unabashedly take a week or two off. It’s unlikely that there will be much news over the next 12 days and you won’t miss me.

I do nevertheless wish you and yours a wonderful holiday celebration, if that’s what you do. I am spending the first part with my son and the rest of it with my Mom, two siblings, nephew and three cats, one of them new to my life. “Mystery,” who my mother named, is one of the positive things the pandemic brought me.

Yes, if any big news breaks over the 11 days, I’ll post something. Sorry, I’m not going to do comments moderation. Please leave a comment if you’re so inclined, but it will likely sit there until Jan. 4.

By the way, the Board has done another great job raising money. We’re close to our fundraising goal. Thank you so much for contributing and thanks to the Universe for providing me with such great supporters.

Best wishes and Happy Holidays,

Nancy Chapman

Co-Editor, publisher, founder

The Board of Directors seconds Nancy’s best wishes for a happy and healthy 2020 holiday. We are all certainly looking forward to 2021.
Thanks to everyone who has supported us this year — you are what keeps us going.
Remember it’s not too late to make your tax-deductible donation (you knew that was coming, right)? 😉
