Flakesgiving Boxes
The Flakesgiving box. The actual box starts out holding bananas when it gets delivered to our local Albertsons stores. Then, they get emptied and collected and stored at the Briggs Distributing, pictured above.
This is good for us for a couple of reasons...
Flakesgiving Week Continues
If you were tuned in this morning with the Flakes, you heard "We Are Family", "Cats In The Cradle" and "twenty Years Ago". All songs requested by folks who gave us large donations. And thank you very much.
We also got an I.O.U. from a family who i…
