AROUND THE HOUSE by Linda Young
Monday, I had some stuff to donate to local charities so headed for Brevard. First stop was Habitat for Humanity, (it was closed). The Goodwill truck at Walmart was full and closed so I headed for the store. They wouldn’t take a couple of the items so I dropped that off at the Humane Society. At least I didn’t have to bring anything back home.
