Hughesville Locals Nov. 7, 2018
Sometimes the smallest thing can make a huge difference in our lives. I am finding that a small fracture of just one finger can affect almost everything I try to do. It’s amazing to see the number of things that we do that require the use of both hands, and I am starting to find ways to work around the problem. I have been very lucky and never had to deal with this sort of thing. Wishing for time to pass quickly in order to get rid of a splint and discomfort begins to seem like I’m wishing my life away, so I am determined to be sensible and deal with it.
A recent weather forecast indicated that we can expect November to be a bit warmer than average, which is no real surprise this year, is it? The trees around our area stayed green for quite a bit longer than usual, but now we are seeing things look a bit more like autumn. Thanksgiving is only a couple of weeks away, and Election Day is past, so that means our local athletes are getting ready to begin winter sports seasons. I know that weather can create schedule changes on short notice, so I will only be putting Home games and matches in my Events list. Please be sure to get a Winter Sports schedule or check the school district website so you can keep up with all the opportunities to cheer for our HHS Spartans!
