MO’S MUSINGS - Whew, what a week, mostly on the road and not for fun. It was not exactly a pleasant “Meandering,” as I was taking my gal to a specialist (doctor) in San Francisco (no luck), but more on that later, down the coast, across winding Highway 92, and finally home. Along the way we saw a raccoon, a skunk, a deer and a cat. Unfortunately, all were beside the road. Anyway, it’s good to be home.

Not a good segue, but home just in time to enjoy the terrific Mexican breakfast at the Elks Lodge Sunday morning. This time around the always delicious meal will be chili Colorado, refried beans, salsa, tortillas along with some American fixins like bacon, scrambled or over-easy eggs, country fried potatoes, juice and coffee. All for just $7 for adults and $4 for kids. Don’t know if they actually take the country fried potatoes outside the city limits to cook them in the country, but I do know they are really tasty. Proceeds go to the many community betterment and youth activities of the Elks.

If you would like to work up an appetite for Sunday morning and Love Madera too, many of your fellow citizens will be at Courthouse Park tomorrow at 9 a.m. for a family-friendly event to spread out across town to make this wonderful place even better. The Love Madera folks have a dozen or so projects, and still are looking for volunteers. 

You can register online by just typing in Love Madera to get to their website and click on “Projects” or just show up to help. Some of the effort will be clean up around the Youth Center, McNally Park and downtown; help with groceries for seniors; help with the Kicks for Kids program and much more. This has become quite an inspiration for the caring people of our town and it’s not too late to get involved...
