Well, if I must say so, this has been interesting, trying to work my laptop with no down scroll key…arghhh. Need to find a place to fix that key, before I lose my mind, what little I have managed to salvage. It is always something to keep me on my toes ― or maybe just in my chair ― looking up, though. Where are those grandkids when ya need them?

Deer count Saturday local

Two ladies tagged out. Marilyn McKenney, my sister, tagged a 13-point buck weighing in at 210 pounds. Megan Elkins with her grandfather's gun tagged a 6-point buck weighing 153 pounds. Megan states it was so old, didn't have any teeth. Interesting for sure. Congrats to these two women. And congrats to anyone lucky enough to tag out as well.

Thinking of John

John Ford Sr. is sick at this time, and word is he is in hospice. You have many people thinking of you, John, with prayers and hoping you will be better.

Until next week, we have our first snow, and it is still on the ground in places. They scraped the road and sanded so that is my first sign it is winter. Stay warm, everyone, and safe. Be careful out hunting.

I made apple crisp to take to Marilyn and Clarence’s for supper the other night. It was good with whipped cream. I need to make more, and an apple pie is in the works. I hope to remedy this laptop.
