Well, the weather has certainly cooled down, which is a great thing. School does start up this week for all our students, so there will be a lot more morning traffic. Be sure take it easy and look out for the children.
Don't forget that the library is now on its fall and winter schedule.
The Chesterfield Fish and Game Club has its Sportman's Expo this Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 11 and 12. This expo will feature information and equipment on outdoor activities. Gun and knife dealers will be present as well as archery, ATV and UTV dealers, wildlife art and woodcrafters. There should be something for everybody and it's a great opportunity to check out the much-improved facility. Refreshments will be available throughout the weekend as well as a Sunday Chicken Barbeque from 11:30 until 4. Entry into the expo will be three dollars and the public is more than encouraged to attend from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. for both days. Should be a lot of fun so try to check it out one of the days.
I have been loving the wildlife that is in our area. My own home is right on Route 9 around many other houses but I still have seen deer, rabbits, chipmunks and many other animals through the windows of my house since moving here. It has been such a great experience - that is until my poor dog lost an encounter with a skunk at four in the morning this past weekend.
I definitely have an even greater respect for nature as our whole house has been thrown into such a state over this brief meeting. I am looking forward to the day my nose smells something other than a burning tire smell. My poor dog, who is a very spoiled house dog, has been relegated to the garage temporarily and probably won't look me in the face for even longer than the smell dissipation. Well, with the joys of country living comes the trials as well, I guess. Have a great odor-free week, everybody!
