Girl Scout cookies brighten the spirit… but it’s not just about the cookies

The Girl Scouts in Carrs Grocery had me on the word “Samoas.” I have no proof of this, but I think these Caramel deLites with coconut are almost everyone’s favorite among nine cookie types offered. I bought two boxes and consumed more than I care to mention with a thermos of coffee on a trip to Eklutna Lake.My mood improved dramatically that day and on into the next. It got me to thinking: Sometimes when grim national and world news is weighing us down, there is a sure fire way to unburden ourselves. The answer can be found in our community’s people.
