Happy birthday wishes go out next week to Conner Hampton, Sunday; Phillip Sanders and Amanda Moore, Monday; Betty Wells, Wednesday; Frank Masters and Sonica Wade, Thursday; Gary White, Friday; Angela Hamilton and Kaytlyn Davidson, Saturday.
I hope you all have very happy birthdays and many more happy ones to come.
