The Warrensburg World’s Largest Garage Sale started Friday and was packed through the weekend. Folks from all over came to sell or to buy treasures. Friday and Saturday had great weather, but Sunday brought rain. The sale didn’t need it, but our area does need it. The rivers and brooks have been so low. Could almost cross the Hudson River on the rocks.
Fred and Ruth Allen from New Jersey, Joe and Heather Semmens’ children, Jonas and Izzy, and other friends spent a great weekend at the sale with thousands of others. I met them at Stewart’s in Warrensburg on Friday to give Heather a photo album of pictures of her that I had made for her.

Tim and Cassie Noel have been married six years.

Coyotes have really been raising a terrible ruckus in the area. When you hear so many of them and so close you know the deer or other small animal do not have a chance. Many deer have been seen so guess that is why the coyotes are more plentiful. Also, be careful in your travel for the deer crossing the roads.
Now that hunting season has started, be careful before you shoot. Too many accidents happen even though you don’t mean it. Go out and enjoy the wild.
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Remember those who tried to fight the good fight and pray for those fighting it now. Give to the cause if you can.
