Our cooks, Terry Cade and Carrie Jewell made for us pork roast, scalloped potatoes, fresh green salad, and blueberry pie for dessert. We thank our cooks for a most satisfying meal.

Our greeters were Jimmy Cole and Judy Cavender. Judy Harris made the announcements and led us in the flag salute. Jimmy and Judy collected and counted the money. Yours truly prayed the blessing over our meal.

We had Donna Campbell’s sister and brother-in-law, Karen and Ron Thomas from Klamath Falls, visiting and joining us for lunch. Sharon Fall was the big winner for the free meal. We had 40 guests on our books and ten takeouts.

I shall now continue with my story from two weeks prior. My wise hubby had me slow down and put on the emergency blinking lights because he saw the rear right passenger tire (tongue twister for ya ) bulging in a spot. I was pretty nervous because the speed limit in that particular stretch of the road or I think all of Washington state is 75 mph.

We were trying to get over to the Oregon side because we thought we saw a tire store there but my hubby didn’t think we could make it and didn’t want to inconvenience others in case the tire did blow out. We came to a wide shoulder and pulled over. My awesome hubby changed the tire in about half an hour and we were on our way again. I’m so thankful my hubby was with me because I don’t know what I would have done if I were by myself. I probably would have been panicking and crying? Ha. We thank the Lord for watching over us and giving us safe passage. God is good, all the time.

Well, we are now in the month of October. I can’t believe it. I picked the last of all my tomatoes and brought them in. I found some really nice and big tomatoes but when I turned them over, there were holes in them! Grrrrr. The darn slugs had gotten into them. I’m pretty sure the slugs hijacked their way into my garden from some plant I got. I never had a slug problem up here before.

I am going to bait them with a bowl of beer and ketchup. They love that, they will come and drown. I need to remember to have a pair of disposable chopsticks and pick them up to put in a salty jar. Yes, lots of ways to torture the little pests.

I never did get any lamb’s quarters this year to make my Korean dish. I got a bunch of the seeds though and scattered them all over the dirt around my house. I know, I just scattered what you all call “pig weed.” But, I tell you they are so good for you and rich in vitamins, better than spinach! I hope there will be tons of it next year.

Revelation 12:11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony: and they loved not their lives unto the death.
