November Is Time To Show Thanks
Time does march on, fast, and here it is already November 2018!
And November is “I am so thankful month, drum, family stories, family caregivers, Veterans in the classroom, Georgia pecan, peanut butter lovers, vegan, roasting, adoption, Hospice, lung caner awareness, diabetes, healthy skin, sleep comfort, flu awareness, aviation history, and American Indian month.” What? No turkey or venison?
Nov. 6 is election day. Nov 11, is Veteran’s Day, and Thanksgiving is Nov. 22, the freedom to vote as you think best, those who fought for our freedoms, and a special day of thanksgiving for them.
Recently, I had occasion to confirm the claim of aloe being a good antidote for burns. I had a bad burn on a finger. By the time I cut a piece of aloe, the finger had swollen, a blister had formed, and it was really red, so hot that it dried the aloe fast, so I cut another piece of aloe and held it on the burn for about an hour, until it quit burning and paining. It healed quickly, and three weeks later, the blister had dried and was peeling off, no damage done.
The pie auction in the Senior Center went very well with 20 candidates attending, and everyone was happy with being able to meet and work together. About $2,600 was raised, so it was also a successful fundraiser for the Center.
A big party is planned by the Center, for Halloween, all “Kids” invited.
Charlie and Carol Pitts are again hosting the annual Myers family reunion at their home in Siloam Springs, on Saturday, Nov. 3. All family and friends are urged to spend the day.
