Happy Fall! I hope it has been a good week for everyone. Today is Sunday, Oct. 24. The temperature is 76 degrees, skies are a beautiful blue again today and there is a nice breeze noted. Our potted flowers are still doing good and the houseplants will move inside later this week. We have 2 bluebirds that have returned and hopefully will build another nest. I saw a bluejay this morning, other than that we are waiting for them to return. James is about halfway through bush trimming.
We went to our great granddaughter Laiken’s birthday party yesterday. She was “ONEder Woman” – 1 yr. old and walking. She enjoyed it all, yet didn’t know what to think. She enjoyed pulling tissue paper from the sacks and ALL her surprises and those who came. Blessings abound!!!

Remember, Halloween treats will be given out at Gene Record Park on Sat. Oct. 30 from 4-6 p.m. There are several groups and churches participating. I think it is a safe alternative considering Covid and other issues. Thanks to all participants!
