Lady of the Night
Sorry for my tardiness in responding [to a Blue Ridge
Country subscription renewal notice]. I had the check
made out, and then a lady of the night picked my pocket
and I had choices to make. That lady's name was Irma,
and the setback she caused to my pocket made this a
tough decision. I love Blue Ridge Country magazine, and
I think it is the best magazine ever. But I now have other
expenses that I have to meet. Hopefully when the situation normalizes I can subscribe again. Thanks.
-Sam Deen, Ocala, Florida
Editor's note: As a tiny gesture to those affected by Hurricane Irma in Florida, we have extended Sam Deen's subscription for three years at no cost to him.
