Critter Corner: Yes, the critters do know about the holidays, and do they enjoy it and get testy if they do not have special stuff all time. They start at Thanksgiving and go until New Years, and some even think it should be extended after that, funny little things they are. I also think they have told every other critter they know that special treats are here, they sure do blab. Oh well, they are well worth doing it for as they are so cute to watch. Little Mama and Little Miss were back and in full swing. They were so happy to be back but would not tell us where they had been or why. They did bring a few cousins with them, but they were very nice and respectful. Guess they were told not to mess it up for the rest of them or they would be out. There were only two others one night and three the next, then just Little Mama and Little Miss. No others, guess they were just visiting them, or maybe they could not abide by all the rules so they just did not come. Fine with us, and as Little Mama and Little Miss said, 'good, more for us.'

Nipomo Lions have assisted the Ventura Lions club and those they deemed as needy during the Thomas fire. Hats off to our Lions Club members, who are always there when they are needed no matter where it takes them. We do serve as all Lions Clubs do. And we appreciate all Lions Clubs around the world.
Nipomo, remember there will be a judging of the best lights in Nipomo and where they are located in the Nipomo area so you can take the family and see them. That is so much fun for the family, and the kids do love it, at least mine did. The judging will be taking place on Dec. 17. There will be a group of people consisting of some members of the Nipomo Lions Club, with Richard Malvarose, and family, the Weitzel family, some Chamber members, and some other club members in the community. They will be divided into various areas that they will cover in order to cover Nipomo. Then they will assemble at the Weitzel home and share their favorites. We'll get the information out to you in the Friday, Dec. 22 edition, so you have time to go see them. If not, do it after Christmas. Some people spend their Christmas Eve riding around and see the lights with the family, or go the day after Christmas, if they have out of town visitors. You have lots of time to see the lights in Nipomo. Enjoy, and let us know if you like this. If you do, we'll do it again next year.
The L.A. Gift Show will be coming in January. More information will follow in the weeks to come before it, but get to your local merchants to find out what is new and hot on the market.
