Summer fades into memory...

Summer, er rather, September was too short. That was summer, warm days, warm nights, foggy, mist swathed mornings giving way to beautiful sunny days and star filled nights. Then It came to a rather abrupt end. Picked up where July left off only colder yet. The first measurable snow was on October 10. The color has been hanging on more than usual. the light snow highlighted the color. Most of October has been cloudy and cooler than normal. However, good times continued at the corner and beyond. After jugband weekend, Jake made made his annual trip to the area. We had the usual feast and on the beach, on a warm Saturday late September night. There was quite an assortment of 4 wheelers who passed through during the weekend afternoons and evenings. A good number of biker groups too. Jim has decided to make an N scale model of Deer Lake Charlie's, and on viewing just about everyone had something to comment on, to add to their memories of what use to pass as the corner, and ever evolving place. The last officially opened weekend has now come and gone. The annual closing potluck was well attended and the food was great. The varieties of delectable expands with the great constants such as Tracie's legendary deviled eggs. All sorts of folks turned up. Despite having to turn off the heat temporarily to allow Marshall to deep fry shrimp and vegetable tempura, the place was warm and cozy. But all things come to and end. Another year at the corner. During the winter months, pictures of the goings on in the weather will be posted for your viewing pleasure. Surely we will see each other and all when the spring and sun return in full.
