Another week gone by. What great weather we’ve had.

I hope you all enjoy Thanksgiving.

Pumpkins come in a wide spectrum of colors from blue-green “Lakota and Marina, Di Cheoggia to pure white snowball and moonshine, as well a the traditional oranges and yellows. Sizes range up to 2,000 lbs.. Open wide the doorway. Thanksgiving comes again!

Prayers go out to Yvonne McIninch who is in Ross Manor, Bangor.

I’m sure you all read the article on Mr. Roy who got his 220 pound buck. The health problems he has had to overcome it is amazing - diabetes, heart attack, stroke into a coma, but bounced back from the above until he was overcome with colon cancer and has his lower leg amputated. My prayers go out to him. It shows how sometimes the body stays strong and gets you through recuperation and on the move again. Stay strong ... bless you

It has been a busy week preparing for Christmas, doing cards, went to Kendalls sale. It was packed, to say the least, with lots of mark downs. Then across the river and did some shipping, had coffee with a friend, got my 13 -14 dozen cookies baked for the church sale on December 3rd. at 8 am.  There is going to be a raffle you won’t want to miss. I attended the Coffee House at the high school on Friday. That was fun with snacks, coffee, lemonade, great entertainment. My highlight was Dr. Newman and the “29 and holding” group from St. Stephen.

Saturday morning, I went to Kirk-NcCall Christmas Bazaar. There were tables of jewelry, crafts, books, lots of baked goods, raffle dishes and much more. The ladies did a super job. I dropped by the Leaion SPCA craft sale. It is so amazing the fancy work these ladies do, baking, jewelry as end to it all. I went to Dooley’s sale. There were tables of skin care products, jewelry, raffles and lots of home made sweet breads and so much more. Then onward home to get ready for McAdam with a couple of friends. We stopped at the McAdam Bazaar. It was a full house with 3 big buses there. We had lunch then on to the Train Station.  We were greeted with hot apple cider. It is fabulous. So many people were involved with the decorating from McAdam, Quispamsis, Christie Ridge, etc.

Congratulations to Angie Foggia on her retirement. I didn’t realize she was done and enjoying her new life. It’s time for her.
