Found on my refrigerator door, “For the ignorant old age is as winter; for the learned, it is the harvest.” We have that choice. Which one is for you? Right now, I’m harvesting memories, and I think you are too.

Come on down! Cook’s choice for $4 is always a good choice. It’s happening this Friday!
