November Musings

I haven’t been writing for the past few weeks and so much has happened that I don’t know where to start. I have been busy putting up a 220 foot fence around my back yard. I also erected a metal garden shed which my wife gave to me for my birthday last month. We had a beautiful Canadian Thanksgiving with plenty of good food to be thankful for. The first of many events following Thanksgiving was the arrival of ghosts, goblins, Princes and Princesses when the local children visited our home in search of Halloween treats. I carved out pumpkins to make jack-o-lanterns in order to guide the trick or treaters to our door. The next event of note was the World Series. The sentimental favourite Chicago Cubs went on to victory in this Fall Classic. America elected a new President this week. The Russians seem delighted with the outcome. Which brings us to this very special day. November 11th Remembrance Day. A time to salute our Veterans and pay our respects to all who gave their lives so we may enjoy our freedom. The event which was most important in my personal life was the addition to our family of a dog named Abby. She is a 9 year old Cocker Spaniel who needed a home because nobody wanted her. She now has a forever home.
