These beautiful, warm days have allowed us to get the flower beds ready for winter. Pine needles form a blanket for the early spring bulbs. Most of the leaves left on the ground are huddled around the shrubs and trees protecting their roots from deep, killing frost.
On Nov. 21 at the West Paris Universalist Church the program will be on REACH by Debbie Dembski. Also Susan Dunham and Nancy Willard will assist her. A coffee hour follows. All are welcome.

My table is graced with a large bouquet of lilies of many colors sent from son, Joe and his wife Mickie and grandson Leighton of Athens, Ohio. I heard from my family on my Birthday. Jude developed her pictures of our visit to Arcadia National Park and the climb up Cadillac Mountain and had them made into a nice book so I can relive that excursion over and over. Jude is not just an artist with oils and water colors but is very good with her camera. She puts many of her pictures on the computer for all of the family to enjoy. Allen and Myrna Lamb always send a check equal to my birthday years and I also have a new walk-around phone. Quite a day for an older lady!
My Christmas list is half filled in. The older family members are receiving the history of my life, as requested by them. It is about finished and ready to be printed out. Only the six great-grands need more considering as to their wishes.
Muffin is not hard to please for she has the same things every day. She eats the cat foods that she likes and lets the others she does not like sit in her dish and dry up.
