I can't believe the month already is through it's second week. There is talk of maybe an early frost next week and temperatures getting as low as 32 degrees. Dare I think an early snow? CHURCH NEWS.

As Halloween approaches, I can't help but remember when my daughters would dress for trick or treating. My favorite to dress them as was witches. It was so much fun putting on black wigs, green face paint, black dresses and a pointed hat and striped socks. They loved going to their neighbors, Larry, Debbie and Jason Light's house, and other relatives. LAUGH LINE. What's worse than biting into an apple and finding a worm? Finding only a half of a worm.
