2012.10.17 Jo Ann Singles-Rotzien: Observer enjoyed from cover to cover
Congratulations to the State Line Observer for another top award of Newspaper of the Year. I agree with the guest editorial that local community papers are very worthwhile to a community. One of my favorite things is to read the Observer from cover to cover and I usually start with Colleen's column which is my favorite. I feel that I have shared so much with the Green family over the years as I read their family joys and yarns of two generations.
Now...this last paper had me in stitches. As I read David's column last week on "the home gymnasium," I began to picture the description of a guy lying on the floor with his head under his living room coffee table and that was funny and then I read about the Towel Curl where you hold your wife’s towel to form a loop for the foot. What if someone doesn't have a wife?
But the last directions where you pull a chair up to the table and place one foot on the chair and another foot is held in place above the chair just got to me.
I began this huge body shaking belly laugh as I read down the column. I read it again with the same results.
Our imagination is a wonderful thing and laughing out loud is a good experience. Reading the Observer is always a favorite thing.
