It is November and that means hunting season around here. Tasha and I are careful to wear our fluorescent orange. Dave not so much. He thinks he is safe because he stays close to the house. Hope he is right. Since Tasha and I go for walks, we have to be more careful. I have seen quite a few people walking in their fluorescent orange, carrying guns. Haven't seen any deer this week. They seem to know enough to hide, sometimes.
Last week I didn't mention that I'd gone to the Weary Club coffee hour. It was an interesting visit and there were even people from Waterford there. It was a good visit and I learned some local history about past members of the Weary Club.
It gets dark earlier now and that limits my ability to go out at night. Dave finally realized that we need better lights in our yard. He went to leave the shop after dark and discovered it was dark getting back to the house. I’ve taken to carrying a flashlight when I go out at night for a meeting.
