The Perfect Snowball
I made myself a snowball
As perfect as could be.
I thought I’d keep it as a pet
And let it sleep with me.
I made it some pajamas
And a pillow for its head.
Then last night it ran away But first, it wet the bed!

The 11th Annual Dancing with Local Stars fundraiser benefiting Cornerstone: Foundations for Families, is being live streamed across the country this year and you don’t want to miss out. Seven couples have been rehearsing every kick ball change, time step and jazz hand to bring you an exciting evening of dance. The program will be live streamed to internal residents on Channel 3, but cottagers and the community can register for a free ticket to watch by visiting

Laugh of the Week
Want to hear a roof joke? The first one’s on the house.

People think “icy” is the easiest word to spell. Come to think of it, I see why.
