Greet­ings to all. There are no an­niver­saries in Novem­ber but there are a few birthdays go­ing out to: Grayson Moar 5th, Bradley McGhee 18th, Kolton Mueller and Keara McGhee 26th. I hope all of you have a good day.

The winds this past week have done dam­age again to some places. My neigh­bour has a large por­tion of fence in the back yard blown over that re­quired a great deal of work to fix. I had trou­ble in the park­ing lot at Fre­son Bros. get­ting into the store and then com­ing out was be­ing blown across the lot un­til I got to a parked car to hang onto un­til a man came out of the store and helped me back to my car. It was scary to say the least and my thanks to the man who helped me. Sorry I didn’t get your name.

Watch­ing the World Se­ries is great en­ter­tain­ment and ex­haust­ing with so much drama and ex­tra in­nings. It is one of the more ex­cit­ing se­ries for a long time. By the time you read this the se­ries could be over, end­ing in L.A. on Tues­day.

It is soon Re­mem­brance Day on Novem­ber 11 so wear your poppy and plan to at­tend the ser­vice. It is such a small thing for us to do to hon­our those who did so much more and are still do­ing ser­vice for our coun­try.

If you have been watch­ing foot­ball lately, you must won­der, as I am, what is go­ing on with the Stampeders. They seem to have for­got­ten what they are to do. Cal­gary has an­other back up player who can throw passes and move the team for yardage but the coaches seem to have for­got­ten about him. He couldn’t do any­thing worse than Bo Levi. Just a com­ment from an­other arm-chair coach.

Here’s some­thing from English and his­tory teacher’s file of “good­ies”: Solomon, one of David’s sons, had 500 wives and 500 por­cu­pines.

Have a good week.
