It may be only the middle of November, but it’s time we all face the facts. Christmas is barreling down the tracks at us. It’s not quite as daunting for Tim and I since our kids are now grownups, both at MSU, so we (I say we – ha! – I mean, “I”) don’t have to make several trips to ToysRUs trying to figure out what to get the tots. Thank goodness.

And thankfully, “Christmas on the Peninsula” is this weekend. It’s the annual bazaar hosted by Old Mission Peninsula United Methodist Church, and you’ll find all sorts of great gift ideas there, including home-made goods, crafts, attic treasures, bake sale items, and festive items from “Santa’s Attic.”

There’s also a light lunch available, and – here’s the best reason to stop by the bazaar – Marge Long is making her mom’s famous Sloppy Joes, which Jo herself used to make for the bazaar. And if you went to Old Mission Peninsula School back in the 1960s and 70s, you’ll likely remember eating Jo Brown’s Sloppy Joes at lunch. You know, back when school cooks like Jo Brown, Clarissa Boursaw and Lucile Lindsey actually MADE the kids’ lunches from scratch.

The “Christmas on the Peninsula” Bazaar is tomorrow, Saturday, Nov. 11, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Old Mission Peninsula United Methodist Church, 16426 Center Road on the Old Mission Peninsula. Don’t miss it!
