Ah - Fall is closer!

Hi Family & Friends
I hope everyone is enjoying the cooler temperatures we're experiencing the past few days. We turned the AC's off and opened doors and windows. Unfortunately, the heat will return sometime this week.
Report on the young man who had the diving accident last week. Mark went up to see him and found that he is paralyzed but couldn't find out if it's complete paralysis. The fella's mom had been there but he just missed her; a cousin and his girlfriend were there but didn't have a lot of information to pass on. There were two vertebra completely out of line and they were fused. He is on a 'backboard' and when Mark was there he was 'face down'. Mark left for a bit to see if he could find the mom but she was no where to be found. He went back to the room and the fella had been turned, face up. He is on a respirator and couldn't talk and he could not acknowledge Mark. So Mark will go and visit him sometime this week.
Haven't been in touch with the other three 'children'. Am wondering if Nate came back from the Bikers Boogie - maybe he ran away? (Just kidding.) Imagine everyone is okay or we'd have heard something!
Friend Pat called and asked if I wanted to go for a ride in the country - she's writing a column on a church celebrating it's 175th anniversary. So we took off looking for the church, she had good directions and we found it without a problem.

We didn't see any wild animals but thought there might be stills or meth labs in some of those old barns!

On our way back we stopped at the Westport Covered Bridge. It's been restored since I last saw it on a school trip with Tracy and her class. And that was a long time ago!

I finally got back to doing a bit of sewing. The C'mas Log Cabin quilt got it's binding. It is not a pretty quilt! I ran it through the washer and dryer this morning, thinking it might look a bit better - but it didn't. The quilt is folded in fourths in the picture - it measures something in the vicinity of 60 x 70". Like I always say "it will keep someone warm."

Time to go - must write checks to pay bills. Thanks for stopping by and have a good week.

Enjoyed the tour, and your little log cabin is cute, it will definitely warm someone inside and out.
