This week I lost a good friend who was also my cousin when Oletha Pauline Parson succumbed in her brave battle against cancer. At 72, she is the fourth of my generation of cousins to die.

Life as seen from the perspective of a longtime Maderan.
As Thanksgiving week approaches we need to count our blessings, cherish our families and friends. Focus on the good things in life.
Halloween is past and yesterday was the last Friday the 13th of the year. The next one is May 13th. The number 13 makes some people really nervous.
Next Wednesday is Veteran’s Day. Local services will be held at 11 a.m. in front of the Madera County Museum in Courthouse Park.
This is my favorite day of the year. Halloween, also known as All Hallow’s Eve, is the night when the spirits of the dead are free to roam the earth.
Thank you, dear readers, for all the lovely birthday wishes received last week.
