Do you have enough water yet? We are supposed to have a drying time. I’m sure those who had trouble with their wells appreciated it and may they be full now.

Monday is Halloween and I hope your Trick or Treaters will have a great night. The Prospect Fire Department will be giving out treats at the Fire Station that night.

Fright at the Fort will be ending. Guess attendance has been great but the parking leaves a lot to be desired.

Remember Nov. 8 to go to the Town Office and vote. This will be my first time of doing an absentee ballot. We are lucky to live in a country where you can vote for your elected officials free from persecution — our forefathers made this possible. Go around back of the building and enter through the door. All set up for voting.

Nov. 11 will be Veterans Day and I want to wish all veterans a proud day. Thank you to all for your service and sacrifices to keep us free. Give them a thank-you and a handshake regardless of what war they served in or when or where they served.

The next two months will go quickly as there are two holidays coming up and before you know it, we will be celebrating the New Year.

Also remember to change your clock BACK Nov. 5. Hopefully next spring we will cease changing time and be on Daylight Saving Time all the time.

I came home Tuesday after being in hospital and Tall Pines for two months. Nothing like home but it was marred by Daisy being so sick. I had to take her from the Puddle Duck Kennel to home for 2 1/2 hours, then to The Ridge Runner Vets to be euthanized as she was failing rapidly. They came out to the car and put her to eternal sleep. It was quiet and peaceful. My daughters Rosemarie and Lisa were there as I gently stroked and talked to her while she was leaving. She was my constant companion and I will greatly miss her. You will now be with Dad.

I want to thank you for the many cards, calls and visits while I was at Tall Pines. They kept my spirits up, plus all the wonderful care from all there. I couldn’t have asked for better care. Thank you all.

Until next week, keep healthy. — Barbara
