I cannot believe October just disappeared leaving us with an extra hour of time. Wow! a catch-up from the spring. How are you going to use yours? From the look of the clouds out of my windows, dodging rain drops would be the best for today. From the television news, we had quite a storm last night with trees downed, normal for this area when we get a lot of rain. Some of our trees are old, huge, and fall like a game of dominoes. At least this happened after the “Trick N Treat” night.
The pumpkins had their first go-around as Halloween; now they get to be used again. Yep, Turkey Day and pumpkin pies, pumpkin bread, soup, and great way to dress up leftovers. This means families gathering and sharing dinners in so many different locations. Traditions are a big part of the beginning of the Holiday Season and vary from one area to another. Oysters are a big part in certain locations, while here in the South, cornbread hits the table in form of dressing and bread. And, I have already heard the words “Black Friday.” Football will be a big part of the Thanksgiving Season and in some families, the meal is planned around the games. Still, this is a time for rituals, togetherness, family first, and special memories.
This brings me to a short blog, but long on pictures. Our SilverSneakers Group had our Fall Festival on Wednesday, October 21, 2015. We had to wait later this year for the rains to subside and lucked out. The patio at the 57th Fighters Restaurant was sunny, without being hot, a soft breeze, plenty of planes coming in and taking off, and the conversations animated and full of laughter between bites. Proof? Look at the following pictures.
