Thanks, Paul. Perhaps it's me. I do have an appointment for an eye exam later this month.

Sorry John, the pixture is a little blurry at this size. The decal in the back window is of a family of humans, including Mom, Dad and the kids

O.K. I give up. Can somebody explain the picture with the two bears? I must be missing something really obvious.

- John Losch | 10/10/17 4:27 PM

How much trash would a trash truck make, if a trash truck trashed a truck?

- Ron Dowding | 10/10/17 1:26 PM

Thank you, Paul, another good morning in my home. I wish all news could be as humorous as Holliston police log. You get the point across as well. Jean M.
