Out and About – Week of January 15th

We are now half way through the first month of 2018. I’ve been lucky so far and have written “2018” on all the checks I’ve written. Usually it takes me a whole month to get used to writing the correct year when dating something. Perhaps I’ve taken my own advice and slowed down a little when doing certain things. When …
