Caught My Eye…

It is better to be hated for what you are than to be loved for what you are not. ― André Gide

Welcome to the “Black Friday” edition of Caught My Eye!

The holiday season is upon us! I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and were able to relax with family and friends. Last night I felt a little like one of those large balloons in the Thanksgiving Day parade – kind of like a blimp.

If you are a first-time visitor, “Caught My Eye” is posted right here every Friday morning! This is when I take a look at some of the stories I did not have time to write about during the week.

Today I write about Montana Drivers, Small Business Saturday, Obama & Christmas, The Chanukah Song Part 4, plus we have a winner who is Making Montana Proud!
