NOVEMBER. By midweek the temperatures changed in our first full week of November, windy, rainy and a lot cooler. Many families are planning their Thanksgiving dinner, which will be here before we know it. Daddy will bake a turkey and Jamilee will make homemade dressing mom taught her to make. The recipe was handed down to mom from Lucille Willcox and mom passed it on to Jamilee. My favorite dessert at Thanksgiving is pumpkin pie. We have so many things to be thankful for: our families, health, our homes, jobs, food and our beautiful surroundings just to name a few. But most of all don’t forget who made it all possible.     

GET-WELL WISHES.  Get-well wishes to John Shope, Jeffrey Crowder, Clara Chappell Rexroat, Ed Sams, Pearl Horn, Roger Miller, Saundra Powers, Leslie (Pick) Vertrees, BryleHolbert, Wilma Cundiff, Jerry Dyer, Bill Parrett, Josh Carlton, Willard and Opal Smallwood, Patricia Hornback, Barry Childress, Adam Hay, Rosemarie Hay, Thelma Dunn and Cathy Morgan.

Bryle Holbert underwent eye surgery last week in Louisville. Please keep him and his family in your prayers.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY. Happy birthday wishes to Cody Fields, Charlie Grimes and Cody Ramsey (10 years) on Nov. 15; Terry Priest, Norma Jean Duvall, Curtis Chappell and Allen Smothers on Nov. 16; Melvin Duvall, Joanna Butler, Linda Raub, Jacquelin Miles and Regina Goodman on Nov. 17; Darrell Miller, Gary Lucas and Margo Lindsey on Nov. 18; and Adam Peters and Norman Goodman on Nov. 20.

FOX ON THE LOOSE. Daddy has seen a red fox lurking around his house. It makes the dogs bark like crazy. It’s been seen at night and in the daytime.

DEER ALERT. Lots of deer have been seen on the run. Drive slower and be alert especially at night, but they are out in the daytime too. Hunting season make them move more. I have seen a few hit on the roads already.

HOOVER’S WIT. Pleasant sounds: The hum of mother as she runs the foot operated sewing machine; the gentle cluck of a mother hen with her new batch of little chickens, as they chirp back; the hum of the old milk separator at dusk on the farm; the lonely bark of a fox; and the simmering of a teakettle.
