There is a cartoon by B. Kliban that inspired a personal motto. It is also the title of his book of what can only be called...uh.. unusual humorous sketchings.
The title and philosophical sub-category?
“Never eat anything bigger than your head.”

Well, Friday is the annual St Patrick’s Day Potato luncheon at the Commission on Aging and having been to several over the years those potatoes come awfully close to bridging those pretty liberal boundaries.
They’re 8 bucks and come with a veritable plethora of toppings and cole slaw (who doesn’t love a good dose of slaw?) dessert and music provided by those fine folks from the Wheatland Music Organization (Happy Wheatland!).
The monies raised support the work of the COA so while savoring your substantial spud you can feel good about contributing to some well needed programming.
11am-1:30pm at 93 S. Gibbs in White Cloud.
