Good morning and welcome to The Huddle for today, October 23, 2020. It’s finally Friday.
I want to take a moment to wish my mother-in-law, Debbie, a happy birthday! I’m sad that I cannot express that wish in person, but like everyone, Covid-19 means we must keep our distance.
Your need to read time today is a little over 60-seconds.
