Plaid Friday this week

I’m so excited for this Friday!!  Why?  It is Plaid Friday!!  What is Plaid Friday, you might ask?  Well, the name Plaid Friday celebrates the diversity and creativity of independent businesses. Plaid Friday is the fun and enjoyable alternative to the big box store “Black Friday”, and is designed to promote both local and independently owned businesses during the holidays.  Many local retailers in Russell will be participating in Plaid Friday and will have SPECIAL promotions just for coming in.  I stopped in at Tiny Toes Baby Boutique and they said they will be having special discounts on Plaid Friday! Go to the Plaid Friday website to check out the participating businesses here in Russell!  Stay tuned, I will be counting down the days until PLAID FRIDAY!

Shopping at Tiny Toes Baby Boutique & Furniture, one of the Plaid Friday participants!

Russell Cty Sheriff’s Department

Getting fingerprinted as the NEW Cty employee

I know, it doesn’t look good does it?  You would think I am in a little bit of trouble, but I am actually at the Russell County Sheriff’s Office getting fingerprinted as the Newest Russell County Employee. Nathan Keener, Court Security, assisted me with the finger printing. He did an excellent job!

Max Barrett (Undersheriff) and a few other officers stopped in to say hi as well. If you ever see these guys out and about make sure you stop and thank them for serving and protecting Russell County. They do a great job!  Check them out on the Russell County Sheriff Department website 🙂
