Deepest condolences are being sent to the Costa family on the loss of Chuck Costa, husband and father. He was a wonderful man and I enjoyed both him and his wife, Faye. Rest in peace, Chuck.

Sincere condolences are being to sent to the family and friends of Bobby Hatch. He was a schoolmate of mine many years ago. Rest in peace, Bobby.

Happy belated birthday to Donnie Bagley, a schoolmate from back in the day. I hope you had a great day.

Beware of package deliveries from Bounty Hunter Metal Detectors sent to you by Power Sales and Advertising in Lenexa, Kansas. I have never heard of this company, I have never talked to anyone from this company and I cannot seem to get any answers for my many questions. I keep watch of all my accounts, and so far I have not been charged for anything. I called the Power Sales Co. and they were supposed to find out from the Bounty Hunter company what was going on and I have not heard a thing from anyone. I guess I have a bit more of my Christmas shopping done.

The Thorndike Mill and Meeting Place sent a flyer for their upcoming December train rides to Thorndike for three Fridays in December, the 6th, 13th and 20th. Board the train in Unity, get off the train at the Historic Farwell Mill in Thorndike Village. Enjoy shopping at Farwell's Museum Store, Boxcar Books and Garden Variety. You will find many unique gifts, upcycled, handmade and one-of-a-kind offerings for sale to support our Mill restoration. Music, appetizers, cheese, wine and local brew tastings, $20 per person, 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. All proceeds to benefit the restoration of this historic mill. More info next week.

I have enjoyed the warmer weather this week and spent some time outside gathering fir tips and having my own personal pumpkin toss down back. It has been a welcome reprieve from that frigid weather we were blessed with for a few days.

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone and may you be thankful for the bounty you receive.
