Hello to All,

I typed this up and boom was gone off the laptop, and I hate that HP laptop … worst thing ever to deal with. Give me my Acer anytime. But it has a problem. Most likely me. Thanks for those that called me lately. I do this column for the people not me.

The leaves are still falling as the wind has wreaked havoc. They are still pretty though. Some trees are bare of leaves, but the colors are still brilliant blowing in the wind.

The birds are around looking for seeds. Love watching them. It has been a nice fall, anyway. Apples for sale, and pies to be made and many apple crisps. Good eating apples. Sis and I made pies and crisp.

It weighed 772 lbs. and had a spread of 37.50 inches. There was a group that attended as well. Kelsea was second as an alternate, and got drawn. Two weeks to get ready to roll. What a fun time for all. Congrats!

Until next week,

This laptop will be the death of me yet, had a mind of its own, and off goes my news I typed to cyber space, and gone. I had to keep typing thinking it would never end. Get out there and grab some apples, go good. Stay safe, and be warm. It is bird hunting season I believe now.
