22 SPIRIT OF JEFFERSON Farmer's ADVOCATE -- THURSDAY, DECEMBER 1, 1988 Faith B. Cone Dial 725-5488 Seems like forever since I wrote after doing last week's column so ear- ly. I'm still full of turkey though I don't know what that has to do with anything., .We have good news and had news in the health department. Let's get the bad news over first. After the early column had gone to The Spirit, Bette Gault returned from Florida with the tale of John Nelsons bad health - he had been hospitalized. She asked that we all let Edna know that we were thinking of her. Since then, we all received word of John's sudden death. All our thoughts and sympathy go to Edna Peddicord Nelson, former resident of Blue Ridge Acres, and a good friend to many here...Better news in the health area is about Marv Browning, who had sudden major surgery last week. Ruby says that Marv was up and around at the tmspitsl Saturday and that he should be home by the time this column is printed. Cross our fingers. Mary's sud- den illness caused the cancellation of a family Thanksgiving scheduled to be given at his house. Too bad. Other Bette Gault news on a later call included the upcoming perfor- mance of the Masterworks Chorale at Shepherd College December 12. The group, under the direction of Jay Stenger, will sing English Christmas carols as well as a portion of The Messiah. This free concert will be held at 8 p.m. in the Arts Center. After much cooking and furnishing lots of her famous vegetable beef soup as well as peaches for Zion's Farmers Market, Bette took Thanksgiving Day off and enjoyed dinner with daughter Marsha. BeLts and Pappy Kitchen made their annual visit to Joe's aunt in Petersburg and came home during last week's driving rain - tired but hap- py as Russ's mother used to say. Of course, since then, we have had another big rain...One brave begonia in my flower bed still raises its red head in defiance of the frosty nights. Surely it will be gone by the time this column is delivered to you...No black squirrel this week, nor have we seen the pileated woodpeckers starting on our suet. Boo hoe. Understand that Farren McGraw of Red Oak got an eight-point buck ear- ly in the hunting season. Haven't heard of any other success, but am sure there are some more by people of our reservation. I went grocery shopping Tuesday and ran into Carmen Howe. Although Carmen and Harvey had three invites for Thanksgiving , they felt that with their colds, which still hang on, they should stay home. Carmen bought such a large bird that it was hard to believe she was cooking for on- ly three people. Carmen was one of the three people who called me about John Netn's death: Bettie LaMotte and BLUE RIDGE A CRE.S Bette Gault called earlier. I called Warren and Anne Nystrom in Boca Raton hoping to catch Ruthie and Bill Van Vleck, who spent Thanksgiving with the Nystroms. The Van Vlecks came a day early, said Anne, to avoid the forecast hurricane on their side of Florida, but apparently there was no problem. They had already left for home. My nephew Jack Bell, who is work- ing near Philadelphia, drove down to spend Thanksgiving with Russ and me. Had been a number of years since we had seen him. He has a great full head of hair, but it has turned com- pletely gray even though he is still in his early 40's. Whatta thatch...Son John Gardirr brought his partner Pat Compton for Thanksgiving dinner. What loot! John had smoke-cooked a large turkey in his water BBQ while Pat made and brought a large cheese cake with fresh strawberry topping and a huge German chocloate cake for himself, Russ Cone. About all I had to fix was broccoli and sweet potatoes and I wasn't that happy about the way they turned out. Of course I like sweet potatoes only when they are just bak- ed without any stuff with them. Bertha DeVese and Gladys Gooch had some of Bertha's relatives visit Whispering Stream for Thanksgiving. Rather than cook however, the crew went out to eat dinner in Charles Town. Said it was delicious and en- joyed by all. As always, Len Erickson joined Emily and Phil Langchough for their Thanksgiving feast. Wallace and Kathryn Knutsen brought young Nor- man to Blue Ridge Acres for the weekend. Said they hadn't been able to do much visiting this summer so were making up for it this fall. They stopped by our house Saturday night to wish Russ well. Thanksgiving weekend was a biggie for the Pinsons. I don't usually do birthdays except for big ones but '89 is a biggie. Lots o Pinsous and Marilyn's relatives came to celebrate Julie Fritz's birthday at Shenandoah Home. Grandsons Chuck and Mike Pinson (with wife Roxanne) came to visit. Marilyn's sister Zelma and her family drove up for the occasion. Naturally, Jim Pinson was among the celebrants. Cake, candy, gifts, etc., stretched the birthday into a long weekend. Happy 891h, Julie Fritz. One of the things that son John brought out with him a lot of old Katharine (I'm always surprised at the "a" in her name) Hepburn movies - she's John's favorite actress. Next day Russ and I watched and enjoyed "Stage Door." My present for John resulted from an article in this month's Smithsonian magazine. The article created the word "heteronymn." (John's crazy about words as I used to be when I used them all the time.) A heteronymn is a word that has only one spelling but has two separate pronunciations and two distinct meanings - separate is a very good example. The author, Felicia 'Notable News "from South Jefferson School KINDERGARTEN COLOR UNIT The kindergarten classes have cam- pleted their units on colors and most of the children earned a certificate. Now they are busy learning about shapes, how to print their names, and improving their cutting skills. CHRISTMAS BAZAAR Mark your calendar  ! !

Concert Series Given Support To many in the community "Exten- sion Homemakers" conjm'es up im- ages of afghans, tollhouse cookies and bake sales. Few realize that the homemakers clubs first arrived on the scene in Jefferson County in 1931 and now there are between two and three hundred women participating in 15 clubs county-wide. Nor are many peo- ple aware that through the County Council 17 committees establish an- nual goals focusing on betterment of our community. The cultural arts committee has taken on as its primary goal for 19-1989 the revitalization of the Blue- merit Concert Series. Bluemont is a non-profit arts organization which works in partnership with businesses, civic organization and individuals to bring quality performers to our schools and the general public. Under joint sponsorship of Bluemont and the extension homemakers "Nowell Sing We Clear" will welcome in the Christmas season with a concert at Shepherdstown Presbyterian Church this Friday, December 2, at 8 p,m. Admission is $3 for the presenta- tion For additional information on the Bluemont project, or if you would like to see Bluemont at your school or spon- sor a concert, contact Extension Homemakers Cultural Arts Chairman Jo Anne Mulrconey at 725-2315. Lampert, included 16 of tem in her article and said that her master list contained about 45 of which she felt was close to a close. John and I hope to find more than that - we now have 33 identified. A couple of examples of heteronymns are: "The bass swam around the bass drum on the ocean floor," and "The buck does odd things when the does are in heat." They are . harder to find than you would think. NEWS OF YESTERYEAR (ALL FROM DECEMBER 2, 1976 article.) "Thanksgiving at BRA as usual was full of fun and families and much good food. Bertha DeVese's brother was expecting her and Gladys Gooch for Thanksgiving dinner, but Glad's hack kept her in bed and it look- ed like pet roast would be the order of the day. Not so. Edie Monk appeared and brought over two turkey dinners complete with all the fixings. BRA people are so nice. Peggy McCullen had about 13 house and apartment guests to help celebrate her first Thanksgiving at BRA. Betts and Joe Kitchen had big and little Kitchens and neighbors spilling out the eaves. Wayne Kitchen got a deer early in the hunting season but he and Cyndy took off for Romney to try for another. Son John came up to have Thanksgiving with Russ and me. Leftovers were shared with our baby opossum who was joined by a small black and white friend. While the baby skunk was chewing on a piece of turkey skin, a huge oak leaf fell and he really jumped: up went his back, up went the big busy tail, and I thought that we had really had it. Luckily he discovered it was only a leaf. WHEW! "Met Carmen and Buddy Howe one Friday night at the club.

"The snow is snowing; the wind is blowing; and I don't know if this col- umn will get to the Spirit on time. I hope so, but that little old Route 32 is a tricky road. But I surely do love snow, especially from the inside look- ing out. "When you get the Christmas spirit, why not give THE SPIRIT for Christmas? ? ?" Back to year 1988 - no snow, just rain this a.m. but Route 32 is just as tricky as it was a dozen years ago. See you next week. Faithfully... P.S. After I got downstairs our black squirrel came to the feeder but a gray one ran him off. Oh dear.
