Sorry, I missed reading Reflections to you Yesterday and on
Thanksgiving. Sorry sorry. OK turn the page, here's page 4 - featuring

Polly, Mary Walker, Cindy Wright, Walker, Melissa Felts

You all help my Auntie Candy, ya hear!

Happy Day after Thanksgiving, yall!
I hope that everyone had a great Thanksgiving. My sister cooked
dinner and she sent home leftovers! We love our succotash! And the
commute was the best one that I can remember.
Sorry I haven't contact everyone earlier, but I've been busy hauling
pumpkins almost every day since Oct 24. That's a lot of miles and a lot
of pumpkins.

(ok ok so we're jumping out of order here but I just have to show you
the pumpkins, so here's page 7 from Reflections, featuring Candy Erhard,
Lloyd Dolan, Cindy Wright, Fred Friedman, Andi Dies, Larry ramsey, Earl,
Miss Piggy: )

The good thing is that the pumpkins this year were beautiful, and
should keep for awhile. The longer they keep, the more we save on food
bills. Of course, Vincent and his buddies put all that money to good
use keeping the canned cat food companies in business.
We are scheduled to "Wrap for Rikki's Refuge" out at the Banes and
Nobles Booksellers on Rt 50 in Falls Church on Dec 20 and 21, 2010, from
4 to 10 pm. It probably would be best to break this into two 3 hour
shifts (4 - 7 and 7 - 10). I will kick off the wrapping on Dec 20 at 4
pm turning it over to Fred at 7 pm. Fred will open up on Dec 21 turning
over to me to "wrap things up" (sorry, I just couldn't let that one go
;) ). As you remember, they furnish all the wrapping paper and tape. I
just think packages look better with ribbon and bows, so I donate them.
If you can help on either of these days, Fred and I would love your
help. If you can't do a 3 hour shift, we can work around that (but just
remember what the traffic will be like Christmas week in the Falls
Church area). Better to be safe and dry inside a nice warm bookstore
with a Starbucks (hey, do they sell Fancy Feast?) and bathrooms than
stuck in a traffic jam in a sea of red and white lights. It would be
nice if we could have at least 2 wrappers in addition to Fred and
myself. Just let me know which day and what time you can help.
Just so you know, Paul's surgery was successful. Thanks for everyone
that jumped in last year and made it possible for me to take care of
him. I've kept you all in our prayers ever since.
