Here I am again and get­ting caught up on ac­tiv­i­ties. Mother Na­ture cer­tainly gave us a sam­ple of things to come later! Not some­thing to look for­ward to.

Birth­day greet­ings to Elaine John­ston on Oc­to­ber 29. No an­niver­saries.

Har­vest­ing is over for most folks and it seemed to be a good year. So much to be grate­ful for.

Re­cently, the Bor­wick sis­ters had their an­nual time off for a fun time. This year they checked out their usual place in B.C. I’m sure they had a good time.

This past Wed­nes­day, my daugh­ter, Lau­rie Ke­ichinger and Ken came for the day from La­mont. Lots of snow banks along the roads.

Thanks­giv­ing week­end I had grand­son Chad Ke­ichinger and fam­ily from Wey­burn and a friend of their’s too and they left Sun­day to Cam­rose to visit Cather­ine’s fam­ily. I had Thanks­giv­ing din­ner with Bill and Betty Eremko and fam­ily.

Re­ceived word this week that my cousin, Gor­don King, passed away. He had been in Three Hills Hospi­tal for some time. A Cel­e­bra­tion of Life is this Thurs­day, Oc­to­ber 12, at the Com­mu­nity Cen­ter at 2:00 p.m. Some of you folk knew him I think. A pri­vate burial will be held at Sarcee Butte.

I had a phone call on Oc­to­ber 3 at 5:00 p.m., sup­pos­edly from Rev­enue Canada (call dis­play showed In­clu­sion Alta). They told me I owed late in­come tax and to pay now or be ar­rested. This ob­vi­ously is a scam so don’t be fooled. Call came from 780-801-1670. Rev­enue Canada doesn’t phone. Thought folks should be aware.

Don’t for­get to vote on Oc­to­ber 16 or at the Ad­vance Poll and there are lots of names to choose from. It is a priv­i­lege to vote and each one counts. Give it lots of thoughts as to where you’ll put your X.

This is per­haps the time to make sure your ve­hi­cles are tuned up for win­ter and maybe beat the sud­den rush at the garages be­fore there is an­other on­slaught. I hope you all had a great Thanks­giv­ing week­end.

Hu­mour for the week: One child’s def­i­ni­tion of a grandma is that they slow down tak­ing us for a walk so they can look at pretty things like leaves and cater­pil­lars.
