I just told him “OK” and left it at that.

There will a Wrong Days meeting at 6 p.m. Monday, March 21, at the fire hall for anyone who wants to see Wrong Days continue.

Maybe it's time for it to be over, 50 years is a long time, but if you want it to stay around, come to this meeting and get as many of your friends and relatives to join you!
