Hello friends! Hope everyone is enjoying the cooler weather. It has been alittle wet again lately. I thing the only one that appreciates all this water is the fish, ducks and geese! It seems like its either feast or famine when it comes to the weather. Is everyone out working in their yards? Putting the gardens to rest?? I bought some squash the other day....need to buy some more. Please remember the farmers markets ...they are still going on and would love to sell you some locally grown produce. Hopefully people are canning and freezing some of this years bounty.
It was a pleasure to see my foster parents up from Minneapolis. Karen and Leif Nestingen met me in Spooner and we ate at Nicks. I have to say our waitress was awesome! She came out apologized that my dad's chicken sandwich was taking longer to cook. She was very nice about everything. Even asked me how my head was feeling when she found out I had a headache! Have to say I am glad for small town places like Nick's that have good food and nice people! Keep up the great work!
I am not going to share to much politics on my column as I do not want to offend people. However I do want to stress that each and everyone does need to go out and vote! We are in a time when it is very important that the peoples thoughts and views have got to be heard and the way we do that is by voting! I will say I was a Bernie Sanders supporter, I would still vote for him today. I don't say that to make people mad, I say that because people that were going to vote for him are now saying that they are not voting or that they are going to write him in on the ballot. My suggestion is to vote for one of the candidates as each vote counts and by voting for someone that is not on the ballot any longer you are in danger of wasting your vote. Each and every vote really do count so please think about this! Also we do live in America, our country was built on having a voice to speak out, freedom of choice and the ability to have our own opinions. Please respect those that do not vote or see things from your point of view. We live in a good country, lets work on making it even better!

On September 10 I was able to go down to Open Street on West Broadway in Minneapolis. It was great fun to be able to travel with my friend Mary and her son Nodin, we had a great time and got to see old friends and make some new ones! Great job to all the volunteers, workers and people that sold or just came out to visit! A lot of hard work went into organizing this event and everyone did an awesome job! Thanks so much Britt and Lupe!
Happy Birthday goes out to all the September birthdays out there. I love September as we are getting into cooler months and get to wear sweaters again! I hope the coming year is filled with a lot of blessings for all of you! Remember you are loved, hugs to all of you!
