Hello to All,

Another week my friends, the days are passing quickly. It is Fall for sure, the cool air, and chilly nights. Feel's good though since the dreaded humidity for my sake anyway. Noticed alot of squirells and chipmunks around. Have seen several turkeys, and deer. Still having fresh veggies. Even apples. Should make a pie.

Tragic deaths

Not only did Amy Halbert- Bryson, daughter of the late Madelyn Wood Halbert and hubby Bernard, pass away from the tragic motorcycle accident in Colorado, but a short time later, after her hubby JJ Bryson had flown home to Texas( from the hospital) he passed away four days later. It is so sad to lose two parents so close together. They were headed to the Motorcycle Rally in Sturgis on their bikes.  Thinking of the families of all involved. Rest in peace Amy and JJ, you are deeply missed by all who knew you.

Until next week,

Be safe, get out and enjoy the weather now.
