Halloween came and went here on Main Street with no ghostly tricks. There was one exception, the two poor kid’s that our local police department pulled over about 10:30 p.m. in front of our home. They probably wish they had been home handing out treats but both driver and passenger were face down on the cold pavement surrounded by police car’s.
The weather has been simply beautiful for the last few days. Everyone has ventured outside and the smell of summer draws to a close when the aroma of burning leafs infiltrates the air and conceals Main Street with a thick fog of smoke.
It seems as if it’s a race to complete all the tasks before the first snow fall. Since the time change, there has been an increase of activity as darkness now falls early. Like bears, we tend to hibernate during the winter months. However, the autumn rains hampered yard work and the farmers still have fields of corn and beans in the ground. Yes kids, Christmas is only fifty one days away, and we still have crops in the fields.
But, let’s not forget that this month we celebrate Thanksgiving. Retailer’s go from Halloween to Christmas over night neglecting this day. Thanksgiving is a time to reflect and give thanks for all the blessing we have been giving. It’s a time to spend with family and friends while enjoying a meal together. Enjoy and be thankful for all the blessing this month; Christmas will soon be here!
