With the holidays now in full swing, it really is a pleasure to see the main streets of our little historic towns all lit up and wrapped in their elegant holiday regalia. Quietly and inwardly it makes you want to say "thank you" to those special individuals who help turn our streets into these twinkling fairytale wonderlands.
But I was particularly taken aback to see the little town of Ranson make its own holiday gesture. Upon recently driving to work one night, I was pleasantly surprised by an unexpected sight. I hope everyone gets a chance this season to drive through Ranson's circle accompanying esplanade.
It made me aware of the strange possibility that you can be "tickled and humbled" at the same time.
