All the years of apprenticeship in Shirley have finally come to fruition.
The rich people and the Americans have gotten all their ducks in a row.

The fire hall volunteers want two fire halls for Shirley, one for Shirley, and the other, so Jordan River doesn’t get one – (a sort of tree hugger, CRD, dilemma, paradox, kind of situation, I guess).
I’m overwhelmed by the talented, competent, intelligent, and self-effacing attitude in Shirley – Gem of the Region.
