Stars and Stingers: Jan. 2

Stars to Trish and Stuart and the movie theatre for helping out the Northern Lights Wildlife Society.

Stars to my brother and sister in law for having me over for a wonderful Christmas.

Stingers to people who use their cell phones in movie theatres. It doesn’t matter if you’re only texting, your phone should be off!

Stars to Joel for fixing my elliptical machine.

Stingers to drivers who cut into my lane too early, shooting mud and rocks at my windshield.

Stars to the Rockets for winning another game.

Stars to Trish and Stuart and the movie theatre for helping out the Northern Lights Wildlife Society.

Stingers to the people who neglect to say when deadlines change.

Stars to the people who are leaving their Christmas lights up for a while. They make the town look so nice.

Stingers to people who litter. I know this stinger continues to appear, but people continue to leave beer bottles along the paths.

Stars to friends who come to your house, cook for you, and organize your massive DVD collection. It was very much appreciated.
