Recent letters to pen pals gives us these excerpts from the 3rd Grade of Gaston Grade School.
I enjoyed your letter. I’m lucky that my house is not a monster because it would eat my mom and dad and that would be scary.
And we are teaching Razer my dog not to bite.
What do you want for Christmas. I want a desk that is a bed and a deskbed. That is what it is called. I also want a spiny chair. I want that because I could do my homework on my desk and I can plug my computer in and do schoolwork at my desk.

Due to the the Martin Luther King Holiday, the Forest Grove Senior and Community Center will be closed. Writers in the Grove will be meeting at the home of Paula and Parks Adams in Forest Grove. Please contact us if you need the address.
Also, volunteers are needed to help with the upcoming 2018 Authors Conference on January 27, 2018. We need a kitchen czar to manage the kitchen, food, and setup during the event. We need a couple people to help collect the food from the donors as well, so transportation is important. Volunteers will likely miss some or all of the event, so we are also looking for friends and family to pitch in to help make this a success. I’ve volunteered my husband. Got another family member to spare? 😀
The prompt today refers to the Thanksgiving Weekend:
