Stars and Stingers: Nov. 14

STARS to the employee at Overwaitea that gave my mom, HIS two pumpkins when they were sold out. My kids were thankful to carve jack o lanterns with gramma.

Stingers to my stupid elliptical machine for breaking in the middle of a run.

Stars to the Gentlemen’s Leisure Club of Golden for hosting an excellent ski swap at the Rec Plex this year.

Stingers to whoever smashed their beer bottle on main street, leaving broken glass for us to walk on.

Stars to all the people who went out in the cold for the Remebrance Day services. And a big Star to all the people who put in countless hours every year to organize it.

Stars to the girl who lent me her spare pair of gloves because I forgot mine.

Stingers to the people who were doing laundry in the middle of the night. It sounded like nuts and bolts rolling around in that dryer.

Stars to all the guys sacrificing their upper lips for charity this month. Your wives and girlfriends may not appreciate it, but there are people out there who do.

Stingers to drivers who don’t slow down when the road conditions are bad.
