For many years now, each morning, court is held at the front counter in The Sharon Pharmacy. Well, it's a court of a different type though. It's the kind where two people get together and discuss everything from local city hall, national politics, baseball scores, N.Y. Giant football, what they may have had for dinner, how are things at Housatonic Valley Regional High, and just about anything else that may come to mind. And just who is it that holds these meetings? Why none other than Chris Heacox and Tom Flanagan of Sharon.

Chris and Tom have been buddies for as long as I can remember, and I think that it is really cool that they continue this daily ritual. I'm not sure who gets more out of it, Chris or Tom. Chris has a fantastic memory, this I have always been aware of, so he is probably absorbing lots of "when I was a lot younger" or "we never did that when I was a kid" stories and perhaps a tall tale or two. And that Tom shows such a great interest in all that Chris is involved with, well that too is really cool!

What happens on the days that Chris is off, or comes in late? Well, brother Dave steps in and he and Tom do their share of commiserating! Probably some of the best kind of medicine that the Sharon Pharmacy dispenses....lasting friendships!

PS...T-Minus 5 days!
