When you read this it will be Veteran’s Day; one of the few holidays that isn’t celebrated on Monday. This day represents/celebrates the work of all our veterans, past and present who work hard to ensure our safety in this increasingly dangerous world. There are not as many celebrations and parades as once there were. I do not think that means that there is less danger or fewer reasons to commemorate veterans. I think it means we are either lazy or too busy to pay attention to the past. I look at all the events calendars and not one thing is listed for Nov. 11. That is sad. I know that it is true that many people have to work; it is no longer considered a "real" holiday. But for many others, it is. So today, at least, maybe we should think about what Veteran’s Day means to all of us and thank a veteran for his/her service.
Thursday, the 11th, there will be a meeting of ACA at 10 a.m. at Waterford Library; all interested are welcome. FMI call 739-9115.
This Friday, Nov. 12, is the last of the Let’s Talk about It Series. It is at Harrison Library at 3 p.m. The book being discussed is "Beans of Egypt Maine" by Carolyn Chute. I must say I read it differently than I did when it first came out in the '70s.
This Monday, the 15th, is the third Monday, which means it is the day the Knitting Group meets from 2 to 4 at Waterford Library. I almost went last Monday -- good thing I didn’t!
I am now attending the Computer group that meets at Waterford Library on Tuesday. We are learning the ins and outs of Gmail and a few other details about computers. Earl Morse is the instructor.
Tasha is now sporting her new, bright-pink coat. I only put it on when it is cold and take it off when she is in the house, but she seems to enjoy it. It keeps her warm on the chilly days. At 16 she has an excuse for being chilly in the mornings.
That is all for his week. Have a great fall day and don’t forget to wear orange when tramping about the woods.
