Hunting season

Aaron Elkins shot a five-point buck that weighed 165 pounds recently. Heidi Doughty shot an eight-point buck that weighed 150 pounds. I saw the picture on Facebook. Way to go.

Tree lighting

The Knox Boosters Club is having its annual Christmas tree lighting on Dec. 7. It starts at 5 p.m., with the tree lighting at 5:30, Santa and Mrs. Claus at 6 p.m., followed by hot cocoa, snacks and sleigh rides. If there's no snow, there will be wagon rides. All are welcome. Bring the kids to see ol' Saint Nick.

Marine Corps Marathon

Gerald Davidson was among those competing in the 37th Annual Marine Corps Marathon in Washington, D.C., last month. He finished the 40K, 26.2-mile race in 4:25:07 Congratulations for competing.

Wood pile

Yes, the woodpile has disappeared from the front yard. It's in the wood shed, all cut, split and stacked..The family and friends, 15 of them, came and did the job. What a relief. I will never get tree-length wood again, ever. It will come in handy with power outages.

Elipitical

Thanks to Amy Whitcomb Brown for the elliptical machine. Now to find the energy to use it. Ahhh, exercising.

Grandkids

The grandkids got together and spent one night in Winslow, Gabe with Katie, Sara, David and Cody, then they came and helped with the wood and spent the night here. Cody had sports to attend.

Visiting

Gabe came Friday and left Tuesday evening. The grandkids have a grand time playing. It seems so awfully quiet with them gone. They like to visit and I love to have them. They are doing basketball now. With their busy schedules, it's hard to get them away from home.

Hunting

Bob Richardson stopped by on his way to go hunting. He's living at Leisure Homes. Ann sprained her ankle, so she didn't go hunting yet.

Leadership workshop

A workshop for the American Legion Auxiliary is being held Sunday, Nov. 18, at Post 5 Waterville at 9 a.m. It is for all of us who are members. On Dec. 2 at 1 p.m. at Litchfield Aux. 181 is the multi-unit meeting. This is the visitation for 4th District President Veronica, and Department President Mary Jane. Please try to attend.

Veterans shelter

Shirley and Erwin Emery, a Madison couple, are in the beginning stages of plans to have a veterans residential home shelter. This is on Main Street in Madison. They are refurbishing an old building. They saw a need to help the veterans and have bought the home. They are doing fundraising, and hope to find some help with this. They can be reached at 474-8049, and donations may be made to Camden National Bank, earmarked veterans shelter.

Miscellaneous

Not much for news. Everyone is getting ready for the long winter. So far we have only had snow once. Let me know of any news to share with our elderly readers. Hello to Warren Belgard in Wilsonville, Ala. I hope you have nice, warm weather.

I notice there are not a lot of apples in the woods for the deer to eat. I saw lots of acorns, though. Take care, have a good week. Hope everyone enjoys the Thanksgiving holiday Nov. 22.
