By Lois Lumbra — What a beautiful Sunday afternoon, its absolutely gorgeous, Penny and I went for a nice walk up on Black Falls Road and took my neighbors dog to romp and play in the field. The wind was a bit chilly but the sun was so warm. I noticed on my way back down the road that Kelly Maxfield from Johnson was spending some time with her Mom, Maggie Elkins, Maggie said they had Sunday dinner together. They have been making plans for Christmas decorations, this week they went and picked balsam, and pine. This was a busy time of the year for Maggie and Me a few years ago, we had a big business of making Christmas decorations, we did that for almost 20 years. WOW!!! Lots of nice memories, one stands out and I still get a laugh out of it. This particular day, we walked through the woods, across swampy areas, and entering into the gateway, Maggie stopped and looked up with her arms in the air and said.”WELL HELLO TREES”,It just hit the right spot and made me laugh and laugh.
On Wednesday, 11/9, Sonny and I went over to my brother Bud and Roberta Martin home in Enosburg, as their daughter Pamela Harris was visiting from South Carolina, and coming to visit were Niece Brenda Corliss from No. Tunbridge, nephew Harrison Corse Jr. from Bristol, sister-in-law Edith Sear from New Haven, and 2 Great granddaughters of Bud and Roberta’s were up from New Hampshire visiting also. Most had dinner with them and after everyone was treated to a delicious apple crisp, which was yummy.

Why did the band leader allow the turkey in his band? Because he had the drum sticks. Why did the turkey eat so fast? Because he was a gobbler.***
