The good weather continues much to the delight of the farming community. In recent days cobwebs were flying everywhere, a sure sign of Indian Summer.
Even though we are writing this before Thanksgiving because of the early deadline, we hope everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving weekend with their families. We have so much to be thankful for in Alberta when you consider what conditions are like in some other countries. Sometimes we overlook the positive to dwell on the negative.
Get well wishes go out to Bruce Woelk, who is undergoing treatment in the Foothills Hospital in Calgary. We wish Bruce a return to good health soon.
There have been a number of hunters visiting our area for some duck and goose hunting and some good shoots have been reported.
Sandy Muir from B.C. is visiting friends in the district and getting in on his annual goose hunts. As usual he came bringing boxes of B.C. fruit for his friends.
