Boyd Udy reports he has been up on his hill seeding in some different varieties of grasses. He’ll be done in a few more days. When asked if the colder weather and shorter days would prohibit the seeds from germinating, he said, “Some of the seeds will sprout, but we hope the rest will come next spring.”

The Wheatley daughters are excited about Thanksgiving this year. Our Wheatley family will go to Zane’s parents on Thursday and Laura’s parents on Sunday.
On Saturday Winnie fixed a small turkey dinner for the Richman hunt club. There were 15 hungry hunters/fencers. The club gathers during pheasant season to put in fences or refurbish old ones, then eats and goes hunting. “We have a good time,” they all say. This year the weather was mild with only a quick shower. No one’s spirits were dampened. The leftovers were small due to the fact they were all very hungry, though they said it was Winnie’s good cooking.
Starr Mitchell reports taking advantage of the wonderful weather last week to get her yard winterized. She drained and stored the watering hoses and put them into the good looking shed Jim built himself. Many yard decorations followed. Tarps were brought out to cover the items that wouldn’t fit into the shed. “I think we’re all set,” Starr says.
