Addy had a good time Looking at the Gause ISD school calendar and as fast as time passes it is going to be summer vacation. It probably doesn’t seem that way to teachers and students.

Parents home or finding someplace for the little ones to stay if you have to work. March 15 - 19 is Spring break. Maybe you and your family are planning a fun trip and the weather will be perfect Just got a call from Medicare - wasn’t speaking very good English and asking too many personnel questions. I didn’t check the caller ID to see that it wasn’t a number I know. My family is always asking me Why I answer a number I do not know. . If I’m here by the phone doing the news I just automatically pick up the phone when it rings without checking the number.
