SPIRIT OF JEFFERSON Farmer's ADVOCATE - Thursday, November 12, 1998 3 BETTIE LAMOTTE time I wrote the col- she was having car time her excuse still a car.

She telephoned this and said she had found should be safe for the that because she Saturday morn- a better position ' SOme news since there least two opportunities to do so.

If recipe, would you on to Lila call? It sounds like would be a great lrnent to our holiday Jenkins of Rippon shower for Lila's prepared the food for the roughly twenty people who attended the event. Frank and Marcia Gosnell were able to take time to eat dinner al- though Marcia was busy getting things ready for the annual ba- zaar sponsored by the Club on Saturday. More about that later. Frank was a little wiped out Fri- day night inasmuch as his com- pany had undergone their annual audit by headquarters officials. Better an internal audit than a tax audit! Frank said everything went quite well. As some of you may know, Frank and Marcia have been hav- ing some problems with their wa- ter - not the lack of it (thank good- ness), but the quality. They finally put in a new filtration system that Marcia describes as resembling a "still". The system is dispensing pure water which is exactly what they expected it to do. Leonard Ericksen was his usual comedic self. First, he has been looking for a white hydran- gea, but can only find blue ones. He has been all over the place and is now going to venture to Virginia in search. He was also distressed that some uncaring person swiped one of the new white mums he had only recently planted at the en- trance walls. Leonard donated all the mums at the entrance and of- fice and planted them himself. It wasn't a very nice person who did the unkindly deed of stealing the plant. Leonard also said that he had picked 30 pounds of green toma- toes before the first frost hit. That's a lot of green tomatoes, so you can imagine how many plants Leonard had to begin with. Leonard also reported that he had talked with Marvin and Ruby Browning and that Ruby has been under the weather. Edie Garman houses because Zackary got enough candy early in the evening to last him until next Halloween. On Saturday when I again saw Zackary, he had been miracu- lously transformed into a cowboy. Brad Eaton is President of the Frederick Train Club, a group of model train enthusiasts. The Club is holding an open house this weekend at the Club on East Patrick Street behind the radio re- pair shop. The open house is Sun- day 1 to 4 and you can call Brad for more information. In addition to this open house, the Club will hold additional such events in January. I know Martin Myers is also a model train enthusiast and I believe there might be a few more in the community. Clay Horton was there with son Brian and Clay's friend Mary. Clay told us he has been having a successful year of hunting. I am sure his success means that we will all be enjoying some of his fabulous venison at some point. Hint, hint! Holiday Bazaars Linda Eaton has been busy get- ting ready for the Asbury Method- ist Church bazaar on the 21st. Linda is quite a crafty person and, in addition to Asbury's, Linda do- nated several things to the Club for its bazaar last week. Although I haven't had a chance to talk with her, Faith told me that Bette Gault was busy with Zion's farmer's market. That is always a bi~ event for Zion. The Club's bazaar looked like it was doing pretty well on Saturday when I ventured up with check book in hand. I went up shortly after the show opened at 10 a.m. because I had checked my shop- ping list and thought that Annie Cobb would be able to help me mark a couple of people off. Sure enough she had lots of pretty handcrafted jewelry. In addition to jewelry, there were handcrafted ornaments, pil- lows and hair clips by Julie Ambrose, pumpkin rolls by Trisha Cox and baskets and other items by Connie Citro. The Club's table was also packed with afghans, or- naments, wall decorations and baked goods. A couple of people who had reserved tables failed to Jenkins, at her also had some eye surgery, but is show. The baby boy is doing fine at this writing. The Snack Bar was open and Thanksgiving and Mike Davis was at the Club- Steve Jones w~ doing the cooking lots of useful and house enjoying his turkey dinner, for the crafters as well as the :el Ker Ler and Lila sans the gravy. Seems Mike guests. "------ ----------- doesn't like gravy.

In years past I have always southern living. Mike stays busy stacked ours (or mine) up begin- at his job and was sporting a ban- ning on the 1st of October and dage from a slight injury he re- came up with a final count at holi- ceived while pulling stacks of pa- day time. Cal wasn t too happy per from a shelf. Nothing serious, when I said I was going to do it Had a nice visit with Brad andagain this year. I agreed to count Linda Eaton and son Zorro, akathe catalogs, keep a tally, and let Zackary, whom I had not seen for them go into the stack for the Li- some time.

In addition to help, he also asks that if anyone has extra out- side lights or other decorations they want to get rid of, the Club would be happy to accept them. Give Frank a call if you can pitch in. Don't forget the Club annual Christmas dinner/party coming up on December 12. This is al- ways a festive and happy occasion. Girl Scouts Annie Cobb was all aglow as she was telling me how active the two Girl Scout troops are this year. The troops had their investi- ture and reded|cation and there are 34 scouts - most of whom are from Blue Ridge Acres. As their "Earth is our Home" project, the scouts picked up trash within Blue Ridge Acres. The girls will march in the Christmas parade in Charles Town, do caroling at the nursing homes in the area, and hold a food drive during the holi- days. In addition, the troops have undertaken several projects to as- sist those devastated by hurricane Mitch. To participate in these projects, you can contact Annie for more information. Annie is quite proud and has every reason to be. She also re- minded me that cookie sale orders will be taken in January. This and That Faith failed to mention that Frank and Marcia Gosnell and Miggs Dotson were with Cal and I at the Old Opera House play, as well as the race track a couple of weeks ago. Our group has been to the track a couple of times, but this was the first time we had gone to the Old Opera House as a group. We enjoyed it enough that we will do it again. Miggs joined us for awhile Fri- day night, but left early to rest her weary bones and nurse a head- ache. Miggs got herself a super- duper leave eliminator and has been busy getting rid of leaves. The problem with leaves is that as soon as you get them all taken care of, a wind comes and more fall. Daughter-in-law Iris and her children were due up on Wednes- day for an afternoon visit. Don't forget the Civic Association's annual meeting on Saturday. If you cannot attend, please send your proxy. If you need a Notary Public, I will be happy to do it for you at no charge. It is planned that the Snack Bar wilt be opened for lunch and snacks so you can come early and have lunch before the scheduled 2:00 meeting. That's about it for this week. Until next time Only Shadow (and George's Fluffy) know November 8, 1998. 77 Blue Ridge Acres, Harpers Ferry, WV 25425.
