I have a column in this week’s issue of the Cuyahoga Falls News-Press. I wrote about an ad circular I ran across touting bargains that could be had at the State Road Shopping Center during the 1966 Christmas shopping season. What really caught my attention was the ad for paper dresses. I never heard of paper dresses. You can click here and read my column.

Debbie and I have a new puppy, a Yorkie we named Bailey. She’s about 8 weeks old. This is a new experience for me, a guy who had cats growing up (even though I never liked them). Having a pup this young and small is new for Debbie, too. We got Bailey the day after Thanksgiving. With the recent loss of Debbie’s mom (Nov. 7), a puppy is a pleasant distraction for the holidays and beyond. We had been thinking about getting a puppy for a while, since the loss of Molly, Debbie’s Sheltie, two years ago.
