Hello to everyone from this little corner of the world. The skies were a wonderful blue shaded with grayish-white clouds on Saturday. Rain was in the forecast, and there was an occasional very slight breeze noted with the temperature at 65 degrees. The highs for the next 10 days are supposed to be in the 70s and lows mostly in the 50s. This will give us all a little longer to try and wind things up before winter. Our birds are few, and I am eager to see them again. We do have a cardinal and chickadee visit off and on.
We pre-ordered some stew from the Jacks Creek stew sale. It will be great on cold winter days. James said that there were a lot of people there. I hope they had a great turnout.
Monday was Halloween. Many little kiddos and some still kids at heart had fun gathering candy. I do hope everyone stayed safe.
Friendship Baptist Church will have its Fall Festival at 5:30 p.m. Nov. 5. There will be food and activities for all ages, including a hayride! Please come and enjoy the evening with us.
Jimmy Wells store at Mifflin has closed permanently from what I have seen and been told. There have been many breakfasts and meals served over time there, and many have sat there on mornings visiting, discussing daily thoughts on life and eating a good breakfast. We have bought delicious catfish plates there, too. I guess all good things come to an end. Thanks to those who worked there for all the good food and good times shared with others. I hope you enjoy your days ahead.
Mifflin Store does continue to sell meals and gasoline. I would encourage the support of this store. I would sure not want to lose the benefit of going there to get a loaf of bread, buns, etc. It is nice to have community stores.
Lavelle Page just returned from visiting her daughter in Nashville.

“Traveling to Heaven” by Helen Steiner Rice – “Life is a highway on which the years go by/Sometimes the road is level, sometimes the hills are high/But as we travel onward to a future that’s unknown/We can make each mile we travel a heavenly stepping stone!”
I pray you all have a wonderful week and may it be filled with love, joy, peace and blessings. Remember: if you have news, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I would truly appreciate any news. People from here and those who have moved from our area but still want to keep in touch through the newspaper are hungry for news from home.
Until next week, Happy Trails to You.
