On Nov. 12, my phone apparently fell out of my pocket, unbeknownst to me, as I was walking along Madison Street near the Dollar Store. Thank you to the kind person who found it and promptly turned it over to a policeman who then promptly drove to my home to return it (he beat me to my home!).

It all happened within about 20 minutes, which included me retracing my steps and not finding the phone.

What a responsive community and police force we have!

Blessings and Happy Holidays to all.
