This & That, October 17, 2022
I’ll start with this:
Several elderly church members were being asked to what they attributed their longevity. “And why do you think God has permitted you to reach the age of 92?”, one wealthy lady was asked. Without hesitation, she answered, “I think God is testing the patience of my relatives.”
Locally, our Magazine Homecoming is coming up on October 28 and 29, 2022. The weekend starts with a Spaghetti Dinner on Friday 28th, at 5:00 pm.

But, Sunday, Nov. 6 is when Day-Light Savings Time ENDS. I heard we won’t have it anymore in 2023. I’m sad because I like it.

Today in History: Oct. 13…
1775 – The United States Navy had its origins as the Continental Congress ordered the construction of a Naval Fleet.
1792 – The cornerstone of the Executive Mansion, later known as the White House, was laid by President George Washington during a ceremony in the District of Columbia.
Watch out for some cooler changes, and maybe some fall leaves to change color – still no rain here. If you know how, Do A Dance.
Until next time, take care.
