Nature's paint brush has truly colored our region; this is a wonderful time of the year. I had a wonderful surprise sighting of three adult deer and three young deer in the field across the road from my house this past week. They are so graceful and flip up their little white tails. They are great to see in a field, but drivers should beware that they are on the move; there have been a few accidents reported recently, especially at dusk. They can do a real damage to your car.
The annual gathering of Willsboro families that take a trip to Maine each year, happened a couple of weekends ago, they reported having a great time together. Sad part is that right after they return, many of these retired couples leave for their winter homes. Another sign of the season ending is Ethel's Dew Drop Inn has closed for the season.
Hopefully, you noticed the great new business sign that has gone up near the Bowling Alley. Also the Fire Station has improved and enlarged their sign, so they can better advertise their special events. I had to make a trip to the Elizabethtown Hospital recently and was greatly impressed with all the improvements they have done to the building. When we need the services of a hospital, we like to know that they are available with modern services.
A couple of special occasions are coming up in which cards, visits or telephone greetings would be nice, Joe Bruno turns 90 on Oct. 26, Bud & Gladys Cushing celebrate 65 years of marriage on Oct. 28. Sorry to learn that Rita Farrell took a fall recently, but I understand she is home and improving each day.
I had the pleasure of visiting Mary Jane & Larry Lee recently; they are so delightful to visit and both holding their own. Peg Schnieder recently took a fall in her home, but she is recovering well at home. I also had a recent visit with Mary Sayward and Joyce Blanchard. These were very enjoyable visits. They just can not get out that much these days and we both enjoy visiting together.
Happy Birthday to Vincent Ferris 10/25, Loretta Meinson 10/25, Joe Bruno 10/26, Rita Benedict 10/29, Josh Carson 10/29, Zack Peltier 10/30, Ethel French 10/31. Happy Anniversary Bud & Gladys Cushing 10/28.
