Thursday (Nov. 5), Arlene Forberg and I went to The Attic to do some shopping. We also enjoyed visiting with everyone at The Attic. As it gets colder, our Attic shopping will almost stop. Lately, the wind has been blowing and that makes it so much colder.

That afternoon, a few of us that graduated from high school in 1959 met for lunch at CC’s Cafe. It is always nice to visit with everyone

Just Sharon, Arlene B., Carole and I showed up for breakfast Friday morning. Everyone else was sick, quarainted in their homes, it was too cold outside and they did not want to catch the virus. The person in the White House said the virus was rounding the corner and would be gone in November. I hope everyone is wearing a mask like our Gov. Bullock and the scientists say.

My granddaughter, Brooke, came home least Friday evening from Missoula. She will finish her training to be a nurse at the Glendive hospital. Sunday morning, Brooke, Bill, Tana and I had breakfast at CC’s Cafe.

Monday morning, Brooke came out to my place with breakfast fo the two of us. Then of course she got busy with the some cleaning that needed done. There is always lots to do at my place. The cats just are not cleaners - only themselves.
