Of all things - members have been planning on going to hunting camp for their annual meeting and what does it do? Snow and bone chilling weather. But men are the victims of their own making. All ages want to hunt.
And when they were young and only "men" could go to camp during hunting season, it increased their desire to be one of the men when they matured enough to handle a gun and get their hunting license. In some cases, the men are now old and the "youngsters" are the ones that go out into the woods.
The seniors take care of the camp, the fire and cook the meals. Well, some of the seniors do go out for a while. It is the man thing. Go be miserable, freeze your butt off, and brag about it. Maybe you get to see a deer. If you are really lucky, you might get a shot at one. Remember hunters, no accidents! Be sure of your shots.
I checked with Art Bennett about the next Country Music Jam. The date is Nov. 25. The musicians start making music at 7 p.m. and play, with only one intermission, until 10 p.m. This is a free evening of great musical entertainment. There are a lot of talented people in our area and they all love to play and sing. There are refreshments available and you can make a donation. There is no alcohol but lots of coffee and water. And please watch where you park so you are not blocking traffic or blocking someone's driveway. There is enough room for everyone.
Congratulations to the members of the Smyrna Methodist Church on the wonderful Election Day Dinner that they served. It was delicious. The pork, mashed potatoes, squash, pickled beets, bread, and, of course, dessert was perfection. Thank you for your hard work in getting dinner for everybody.
