We’e had some weather lately! We lucked out when that snowstorm missed us, but as I write this, I hear that some snow may give us a visit. Not looking forward to that. Hope our luck holds out this time too.

An Evening of 10-Minute Plays is scheduled for Saturday, March 2nd, and Sunday afternoon, March 3rd at 2:30 p.m. at the Museum of the Waxhaws. Admission is $10, reservations recommended, as these tickets sell out rapidly. Call 704-243-7283, or visit www. The Storefront Theatre.org. Nine 10 minute plays written by 10 playwrights from places such as Charlotte, Lake Wylie, Salisbury, Monroe, Chapel Hill, Atlanta and Waxhaw with all but one will be attending at least one performance, and possibly both. Those in attendance will participate in “talkback.” Two of the plays are written by a husband/wife team. Although most of the plays lean toward comedy, there is a variety. This sounds like great fun, and may become an annual event.

The Library Association of Waxhaw held a little gathering for the volunteers at their Book Store on East South Main Street. It was so good to see many so volunteers all together. Have you visited the Book Store, aka The Reading Room? You will like it. They feature all kinds of used books at very good prices. It is open every day but Monday.

Have a great week, take time to smell the roses, schedule your mammo, and remember “they deserve a vote,” but most important remember how much “fina” it is to wake up in Carolina.
