Falling snow and the election...

Dear Folks,

There must be the mention of the first snowfall of the season...OK, it didn't amount to much or accumulate...oh, but it was wonderful. The kids at school were delighted. We all had to gawk at the windows and then go outside...what else is there to do but go outside?

The trees are still stunning....this Autumn has just gone on and on. It was a magical day of falling butterscotch colored leaves and frosty snow. It was also election day and quite a big day at that. On Monday evening I hosted by All Girl's Pot Luck. The house was brimming with women of all ages...birthday cakes, a fabulous fall cake by Karen, homemade soups, deviled eggs, salads, and end of garden garnishes. My friends are such great cooks.

We spent a great deal of time talking about our up and coming show in February and the elections. Opinions were varied as they should be. My friend, Kathy, stayed late to help clean up and talk politics. As a side note, they all wanted to just write my name on the ballot. Now there is a thought. It was a close race with just a fifty point variance. The incumbent, Dick Hickman, was re-elected. My article in the paper this week will address him and hold him to promises.

Hope you got out and voted as well!!
