What a dev­as­tat­ing week­end for the sports world with the pass­ing of golf’s Arnold Palmer and the mur­der of a Cal­gary Stam­peder and boat­ing death of the Mi­ami Mar­lins young pitcher. Such a shame.

For the month of Oc­to­ber there is one birth­day greet­ing go­ing out to Elaine John­ston on Oc­to­ber 29. There are no anniversaries for the month.

Time cer­tainly flies as you get older and won­der where did it go? This is the last week of Septem­ber and I’m won­der­ing what, if any­thing did I ac­com­plish other than sleep­ing and eat­ing. Guess there must be some­thing but noth­ing too ex­cit­ing.

The farm­ers are cer­tianly hav­ing a hard time to get things done with the weather be­ing so un­set­tled. Here’s hop­ing Oc­to­ber will be giv­ing us an In­dian Summer.

Do you re­al­ize that Thanks­giv­ing is just around the cor­ner? Time to start look­ing for a nice turkey, get­ting fam­ily re­minded it’s a long week­end and time for a visit and invit­ing friends to come too. When that is over it’s time to think about Hal­loween, get your cos­tume ready to scare the lit­tle ones and buy your candy treats while there’s still a good se­lec­tion to choose from. That lineup of things tells one where the time goes.

That seems to be it for this week and please re­mem­ber there will be large ma­chines on the roads at var­i­ous times and give them their due respect. They will move over when it is safe for them and you.
