It's 48 degrees and drippy at 8 o'clock.

The Weather forecast from YNN: "(Tuesday) will be chillier with temperatures falling out of the 40s and remaining in the 30s. Clouds will remain stubborn with a few lingering sprinkles and flurries.

A few light snow showers are possible Wednesday morning as an upper level low grazes us to our southeast. Temperatures will be seasonably chilly with highs in the upper 30s to near 40. Temperatures will remain seasonably chilly through the end of the week with possibly a stronger push of colder temps for the start of the weekend."


Hank Gardner replied to my request for memories of December 7, 1941:

"On December 7,1941 I was at choir practice in a building on Main Street that no longer exists. The choir director, a teacher, announced that the Japanese had attacked Pearl Harbor. The three story brick building housed the old post office , a dental office and some apartments. Two years later, 1943 I had been in the Navy for nine months."


Yesterday's Ride-around

When you go to the Post Office, take a good look at the painting in the window!!

(I'll try to take more photos, today, and get a list of the WCS students who participated in the painting project!)

There's a new sign in the Park Bulletin Board.

Decorations at the Upcrafts' home on West Bacon Street ...........

..... and at Dan and Marilyn Maine's home on McCabe Road.


When I first caught sight of these big white birds they were all on the ground in the field behind Edie Eastman's house in Dicksville and I thought, "Oh good! Snow Geese!"

But they were actually Seagulls --- a l-o-n-g way from home!

It's a Problem!

The 2010 Troop 108 Christmas Reindeer.

Each year, Scouts from Troop 108 assemble several special Christmas packages - which include toiletries, games, candy and even evergreen-tree reindeer! - to send to local men and women who are serving in the military overseas.

This year's packages are just about ready to mail, but

the Scouts don't know where to send them!

Can YOU help?

- by providing the names and addresses of any service men and women from the Waterville / Deansboro / Oriskany Falls / North Brookfield area who are deployed overseas, now?

You can send the information either to me at the link above or to Mark Mowrey at mmowrey@twcny.rr.com . Thank you!



An E-note from Julie Olmstead:

"My son was excited to see his name on your blog, At Home in the Huddle, on Monday, November 21, as having provided musical entertainment at Prize Speaking. However, he was listed as the flutist, and Eddie Brennan was listed as the pianist. Eli was actually the pianist and Eddie was the flutist. Thank You."


More when it happens.

Have a good day, everyone!
