Wow that was quite the moon out there. Hope­fully you had a chance to take a good look at it.

The Mun­son 300 Raf­fle Draw lucky win­ner for Novem­ber 12 was Ouida Gerat. Now this was a bit of a tricky draw as the writ­ing wasn’t very clear and the phone num­ber listed was no longer in ser­vice. So I sent a plea out on Facebook ask­ing if any­one might know this in­di­vid­ual and how we might reach them. The air­ways were pretty quiet when late Satur­day night I had a phone call from sis­ter-in-law Dorothy Gwynn, who dab­bles in ge­neal­ogy had tracked down who she thought it might be. She even had a phone num­ber for me. Low and be­hold I called the num­ber and it was the right per­son. Turns out her nephew had pur­chased the ticket for her last Christ­mas. Mys­tery solved, con­grat­u­la­tions Ouida and thank you Dorothy.

It was a quiet week with no school but looks like the kids got to par­tic­i­pate in the fall work that is wrap­ping up. Speak­ing of which it’s nice to see the ma­jor­ity of the fields fin­ished and only a few clouds of har­vest dust in the dis­tance. The har­vest of 2016 will def­i­nitely go down in his­tory and be one for us to talk about for a long time.

Re­mem­ber Novem­ber is Di­a­betes Aware­ness Month, and this is your di­a­betes fact for the week. Did you know that by the year 2020, one in three Cana­di­ans will ei­ther have di­a­betes or pre-di­a­betes. That is a scary num­ber when you think about it. We all need to eat health­ier no doubt but when you look at that statis­tic it re­ally hits home. That’s it “no more hal­loween candy, I’m get­ting rid of it”! Take care of your­self. The Mor­rin Lions will be hold­ing a pub­lic in­for­ma­tion ses­sion the evening of Tues­day, Novem­ber 22 at the Mor­rin hall. The evening will in­clude in­for­ma­tion on types of di­a­betes, pre­di­a­betes, ex­er­cise and nutri­tion.

The Ru­ral Crime Watch An­nual Gen­eral Meet­ing will be held on Novem­ber 16 at the Diana Res­tau­rant start­ing with sup­per at 6:00. The meet­ing will start at 7:00.

Mark your cal­en­dars: the Mor­rin Santa Break­fast will be De­cem­ber 4 at the Mor­rin Hall and the Mun­son Santa Break­fast will be on De­cem­ber 18.

I must re­it­er­ate again the im­por­tance of driv­ing safely on the high­ways with the farm equip­ment on the road. We were al­most in an ac­ci­dent when a ve­hi­cle passed a long line of slowly moving ve­hi­cles that were wait­ing for a big truck to turn left. Had the farmer not been watch­ing in his side mir­ror and stopped turn­ing there would have been an ac­ci­dent and it would have ru­ined more than ev­ery­one’s day. Be care­ful on the high­ways and al­ways drive de­fen­sively.

Be good to those around, kind­ness goes a long way. You never know when you will need just a lit­tle ex­tra kind­ness to help you through your day. Have a good week.
