I smell Peanut Brittle – The Lions are out!

Sitting in the Wildwood Office, enjoying the aroma of peanut brittle. Need I say more?

Yep. Penn Valley’s Lions have once again set up the group’s annual “Let’s drive Mikey crazy” trailer filled with See’s Candy.

Trust me, it’s not just the peanut brittle, it’s every kind of candy See’s makes.

The money raised by the Lions here, stays here. They help fund a number of local projects, especially for our kids.

These are some really good people doing great things for our community.

The Lions are selling the candy pretty much until Christmas. The trailer is sitting just outside Penn Valley Pharmacy. (Candy aroma rises so it’s not nearly as tantalizing for Carol’s staff. Thus, my office — being upstairs — helps protect them from the resulting calories. You’re welcome.)

Don’t miss the opportunity to help the community, satisfy your sweet tooth and make your dentist extremely happy, too!

Just forget about the peanut brittle; it’s already been tagged and hidden.


Speaking of extraordinary people: If you’ve gone to the Clubhouse recently, you may have noticed the area surrounding the sign looks a bit different. The entire southeast corner has been cleared.

That’s because Lake Wildwood’s Garden Club is in the first stages of creating a floral dreamland on that corner. It’s the first of a three-phase plan to cover the ground with a magnificent landscaping project.

I got a chance to meet with the work-party last week. All were dressed in pink vests, digging holes, planting bulbs and having a good time while doing it.

Lots more is to be said about this project, and I’m going to let them say it. First installment of the story behind this effort will be in the next issue. Stay tuned.

In the meantime, I’ll tease with a few pics.


Speaking of… Next issue will be the last of 2019. We publish Dec. 20. Deadline is Dec. 11.

Enjoy the holiday festivities and please stay safe.

Good Job


I guess I am getting old and grumpy. What is with the “good job” expression being so commonly used in very unexpected settings?
