Autumn brings many happy circumstances
DIXON — Happy autumn everybody. Some things I like about fall are the colored leaves, re-energized flowers (my spring primroses are back), vegetable harvest (a bumper crop of volunteer squash), no more mosquitoes, and the days are usually cooler. Also, the smoke is bound to go. But, there’s also a downside. My mountain ash tree is de-berried in three days by gobbling, unidentifiable birds. The box elder bugs and stinkbugs are looking to come in, along with bear sightings around the apple trees in the area. We creatures are getting ready for what’s sure to come, winter. It’s been an enjoyably long summer.
Pinochle is played on the fourth Monday of the month, at 7 p.m., so come join the group.
