A couple of different family gatherings are being planned for the Thanksgiving holiday and by the time Saturday rolls around I probably will have had more than my annual allotment of tryptophan. Which means I could be settling in for a nap.
It was May of 1960, on my 12th birthday, that I got my first gun. It was a Winchester Model 69a which was a bolt action rifle that had a walnut stock, a 5 shot clip and iron sights. It was the most beautiful thing I had ever seen.
Autumn is all around us ... be sure to enjoy this beautiful season ... take time to enjoy together with your loved ones all the beauty that God bestows upon us during this lovely time of year! To former Valley Home News writer Laura Burghardt and her husband Glenn, the changing colors of the fall season is one of their favorite times to take a nice quiet drive through our community and the surrounding areas. The falling autumn leaves are truly a beautiful sight to behold. We are blessed to live in Valley Home!
