For a good time, the Pig Feed is tonight
The Pig Feed is tonight.
There'll be food, a fundraiser auction, and dance afterward. It's always a good time. This event is put on by the Stonyford Buyers Group. The proceeds support local kids in 4-H and FFA.
The Crandell Brothers are at the Community Church on Sunday. From the Santa Rosa area, they have been singing together for more than 30 years. The entire service will be led by them. There will be a potluck after the service at noon. Come and join them; it should be very good.
Larry and I and about 20 friends and family spent the weekend in Fort Bragg. It was their Paul Bunyan Days, their local celebration. There were activities all over town. We went to a fish fry on Friday evening. The library had a book sale Saturday and Sunday, with books sold by the grocery bag on Sunday. The tables at the Veterans Hall were filled and there was overflow on the floor, with donations as well as library discards.
There was a logging show, parade, pie sale, pancake breakfast, ugly dog show, craft fair — lots to do. But the best part was that it was cool. It was overcast a good part of the days we were there. I recommend this event as a great getaway. Though, of course, Fort Bragg is a great getaway at any time.
As we were coming home over Highway 20, it just got warmer and then hotter.
We have a fire down on Highway 16 in the Cache Creek area. Apparently this is a group of three fires close together. They call if the "Sixteen Complex."
There have been so many fires this year that they're running out of names, I guess. There is drifting smoke from all the fires around us. A day may start off clear, and by mid-afternoon it's smoky again. People with breathing issues still need to be careful.
The Corvettes went through Stonyford last Wednesday. Our museum was open for them to enjoy. What a feast for the eyes. There were newer cars and older ones, bright colors. They sure are pretty to look at. I don't know if one would make a good tow-car though. I guess I don't want one.
We're not going to have Tuesday dinner at the Grange again this week.Apparently, since I'm going to Paskenta with the quilt ladies, and Chuck and Shirley may not be able to help, Larry can't handle it by himself. I'm going to be rash and make a promise that we'll be back on schedule for the following Tuesday, Sept. 18.
Chit Chat is back! The first gathering of the season is this Wednesday at the Grange. It will be good to see everyone, again. It's hard to get together over the summer. Some people take vacations. Some just try to stay in and stay cool. And then this year, we had to try to avoid the smoke and fires. That took up a lot of our attention.
So, there won't be sewing on Wednesday. We'll be there the following Wednesday, the 19th.
I heard from two sources that there was a mountain lion in the area.One was on Dennis Drive, the other out toward the lake a bit on East Park Road. So be careful. Don't try to pet the kitty.
