Halloween will soon be upon us and that means an end to October. Then it is November and the official start of hunting season. Time to get out the orange hats, jackets, etc. For the first time, I am trying to find a warm jacket for Tasha because she seems to be cold some days. She already has an orange vest, but it is not really warm so I am looking for a fleece one. Unless I find one locally, I will have to try Lewiston or Portland. I actually found a nice one - pink- at PFU, but it was too small. So I am off to find a larger one. Like all of us, as she ages she gets cold quicker.
