The summer garden is done for. Now weíre planning a winter garden. My son just canít keep his green thumbs out of the soil, much to my pleasure. Weíre starting with broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, snow peas and beets.

We have a few flags left to sell at the Post for $20. Leave a message with Susan, our bartender, if you want to reserve one. I hope everyone flew one on Nov. 11 to honor our veterans.

All members of the community are invited to our meals and activities. Days of operation are: Wednesday and Friday from 5 to 7:30 p.m. and Sunday from 8:30 a.m. till noon. And donít forget to save your pull tabs for Ronald McDonald House and cancelled stamps for "Stamps for the Wounded." But they donít need flag, liberty bell or presorted stamps.

Activities for the first half of November (which is "Celebrate Empty Nest Month) are:

Nov. 16 Tonieís Annual Thanksgiving dinner, potatoes w/gravy, sweet potatoes, cranberry sauce, green beans, rolls, Advertisement

Nov. 17 Menís Auxiliary Meeting 9 a.m.

Nov. 18 Comradeís eggs to order, bacon or sausage, all you can eat French toast

Nov. 21 Rebaís Philly steak sandwich, minestrone and/or corn chowder, a decadent dessert

Nov. 22 Happy Thanksgiving ($1 dogs)

Nov. 23 Post open ($1 dogs)

Nov. 25 Barbaraís biscuits & gravy, eggs, sausage, fruit

Nov. 28 Ronís enchiladas, rice, beans, salad, dessert

Nov. 30 Comradeís roast beef and all the trimmings

All meals include coffee, tea and hot chocolate. Donít forget our $1 dogs every Thursday from 4 to 7 p.m. and Saturday from 3 to 7 p.m.

Note: There was an error in the Post Newsletter listing Saturday dogs from noon to 3 p.m. They are available from 3 to 7 p.m. I donít know why, but dogs always taste better when you eat them out with others. Iím sure itís psychological, but I know itís true.

Why ask why? Why do mirrors reflect backwards, but not upside down?

If you were born in November, your flower is the Chrysanthemum and your birthstone is the Topaz.
