Novem­ber Is Time To Show Thanks

Washington County Enterprise-Leader - - COMMUNITY - MARIE ROY WCN Colum­nist

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.

Happy birth­day to Doug Moore, Carolyn Latta, Keven McGar­rah, Bill Wright, Chad My­ers, Leo Bradley.

Happy an­niver­sary to Ryan and Kirsten May, Dar­rell and Eloise Parker, Wayne and Aletta Caswell.

Happy years, all!
