What are your plans for tomorrow? We will likely be going to Salem NH Farmers Market. Whatever you do, I’m sending wishes for a great day to everyone, but especially to the Dads. If you are a father, I hope you are able to have a Happy Father’s Day. If you aren’t a father, have a great Sunday, no matter what you do. Hopefully, you are able to enjoy your Sunday, while still acting responsibly. Stay safe, and always, be kind.
