Hello TiLaV! I feel like a stranger in a strange land writing here after such an extended hiatus. With banks folding left and right lets just say my job has kept me on my toes, to say the least. I feel like just yesterday it was spring, flowers were in bloom, and autumn was approaching slowly, but surely. Now all of a sudden here it is Thanksgiving, a month from Christmas, crunchy leaves under foot and I’ve barely had a moment to comment here and there, much less post anything substantial. How time flies…
Well, first things first, the business of Green La Vergne.
To those of you who are interested in helping Green La Vergne with the TDOT Adopt a Highway effort, please go to our web site and download and fill out the Volunteer Release Form. Instructions on how to return it to me are posted there at the site.
To those of you who have already filled out your forms and returned them to me, THANK YOU!
TDOT needs us to return these forms asap, and the sooner we can get them turned in, the sooner we can get started. Thanks!
Now, since it’s Thanksgiving, er, um almost anyways, I thought I’d talk a bit about what I’m thankful for, in regards to my city.
I’m thankful for wonderful neighbors and friends who I will be sharing the holiday with, in lieu of visiting my family. (Sometimes a family of choice is much more palatable and conducive to a healthy and enjoyable day.)
I’m thankful for the new police sub station that opened up just a stone’s throw away from mi casa. I have high hopes that it will in fact deter much of the troubles I’ve seen steadily increasing over the past couple of years.
I’m especially thankful for the house on the corner of Holland Ridge and Cedar Park, with the always nicely manicured lawn and flower beds. I like that the man who lives in that house waves a friendly wave whenever the Wifester and I pass by, even though we don’t even know each others names.
I’m thankful for the growth I see happening in La Vergne. I’m again hopeful that a bright future lay ahead.
And I’m thankful for This is La Vergne, and the smorgasbord of information that is always just a click away. Kathy has provided us with a wonderful community service, and I want to show my appreciation, so THANK YOU!
So, tell me La Vergne, what are you thankful for?
