Kremmling: Thankful for all things small and grand on Thanksgiving

Autumn is a beautiful time of year. The wailing winds plow through heavy clouds.

Thanksgiving Day is near and we’re thankful for all things small and grand. It’s apple cider time and pumpkin pie time. The earth is a cold gray monotone wailing winter’s arrival. Autumn soon will be ushering in the Christmas cheer.

Wishing everyone a thankful, happy Thanksgiving Day. Be thankful for your turkey and our many, many blessings.

An M.R.I. was performed in the Steamboat Springs hospital on Inell Harvey’s back last week. Results were both good and bad. The bad is that the situation is too far gone for surgery to help. (Inell wasn’t about to have another back surgery anyway).

The good news is that Dr. Fabion told her the discomfort will never get much worse.

Inell says it is all good news for her as she is willing to continue taking pain pills and living with it. Inell also says otherwise she’s disgustingly healthy and she plans on being around a very long time yet.
