Have you got your cos­tume ready for Hal­loween? I hope the weather stays de­cent. It seems to be a nasty night so many times. There are no an­niver­saries for the month of Novem­ber. Birthday greet­ings for Novem­ber go to: Grayson Moar on the 5th, Bradley McGhee on the 18th, Keara McGhee on the 26th. Have a good one.

I was at Strath­more and Cal­gary on Thurs­day and Fri­day and from Rock­y­ford south to High­way 1 there is a lot of crop still to har­vest. Some will be dif­fi­cult as it ap­peared the canola swath was flat on the ground and the se­cond growth was about a foot high and green with just the start of blos­soms show­ing. It looks like it may be next year to fin­ish in some parts of the coun­try. Not the first time for that to hap­pen but for­tu­nately, it has been sev­eral years since then.

Fri­day night I joined Ross and Al­li­son Eremko and fam­ily for a din­ner at Sub­lime Food and Wine to cel­e­brate the visit of their friend Ta­mara Flynn from Texas. There were more friends there from Cal­gary and here as well and then it was back to Eremko’s un­til well on into the evening. Being older and some­times wiser, I went home early.

Re­mem­ber to be ex­tra care­ful driv­ing on Oc­to­ber 31 and keep a sharp eye out for the lit­tle ones. They don’t al­ways look be­fore run­ning across the street.

Armistice Day is com­ing soon so re­mem­ber to wear your poppy and plan to at­tend the ser­vice on Novem­ber 11. It is the least we can do to hon­our our vet­er­ans.

That’s it for this week and here’s some­thing to think on: A say­ing from Woodrow Wil­son: “Friend­ship is the only ce­ment that will ever hold the world to­gether”. Isn’t it too bad the politi­cians of to­day aren’t that smart?
