By Lois Lumbra — It’s a frosty morning in places here in the Village, down near the Church there is frost, but near me its 34 degrees. The sun is just coming out and the foliage is glistening with the morning dew, sparkles like diamonds. God certainly created beautiful seasons to enjoy. Saturday was nice once the sun came out around 10 a.m., there were 13 vendors that came to the Farmer’s Market this week ending that event. Our next big event will be next Saturday at the United Methodist Church, The Rummage and Bake Sale starting at 8a.m. – 2 p.m. We have something for every one..Come and find a treasure or two. Lots of nice clothes, winter jackets of all sizes, snow pants, hats, mittens, boots, etc. I went out for a walk up the hill through Fuller Bridge to see if Nick had and small pumpkins, he didn’t have so I continued on up the road, and met Brianna. She has a flock of chickens in her back yard. I have often heard a rooster crow when outside as their voice really can be heard, But that I do not mind as when I had Ricky here he crowed early in the morning 5a.m. it was like music to my ears, I knew that he made it through the night. Well Brianna introduced me to her roosters Magellan and Moonshine, Magellan is the biggest rooster I have ever seen and so beautiful as was moonshine. She has all her chickens named and they come to her when she called them. So wonderful and she dearly loves them all. I think chickens are so interesting. Then up the hill to Breezy Acres they have new little pigs that were out in the yard with their mother playing around… So Cute!!!

Clay Elkins came up to visit his Mother Maggie this weekend, and had a nice time. Maggie had been invited to attend another class reunion party in Enosburg Saturday and that was a wonderful funfilled time for everyone.
They shared great memories and pot-luck.
