Mary Jo Brown: Cold sets in fast, stay warm

October is well on its way, with the temperature going up and down and giving us surprises daily. Hopefully this type of weather will settle down soon and we can go forward with what we recognize as fall. This year has been quite an experience weather wise not only for Craig but all over the world.

The cold spell caught me unaware, and I felt like it was time to get out the flannels as in sheets, blankets and pjs and so on. The apartment I live in is on the northwest corner of the building and it stays pretty cool summer and winter but right now it’s down right cold. In the fall of the year by the time the sun hits my window or at least the part that isn’t covered by the awning the day is almost over.

I enjoy the beauty of all the seasons but fall seems to be one of the most enjoyable with its panorama of colors and the anticipation of coming events. Usually fall signals the beginning of the holiday season and the crisp air, changing of the colors and shorter days helps us realize that winter is just around the corner. It is time to get the house, car and yard ready for the cold weather that is sure to come. It is hard to believe that Christmas is only eighty-six days away, where has the year gone? The rush to get everything done will soon begin, but don’t forget the things that really count, such as taking time for family, yourself and your health.

Happy birthday wishes go out to Jennifer Miller-DeHerrera, Marie Greenwald, Iris Ballack and Joel Herman.

Get well wishes to Dolores St. Louis, Paul Cruz, Tony Balleck, Iris Balleck and Joan Duzik
