Thought I was done for goodness sake; but yet on August 11th, my neighbor got a call with a tale of a snake! Putting ice packs in the cooler in my car; noticed upon the ground, a new tire shredding black rubber. Pulled a little bit forward and what do I see; a snake, black it was, all curled up, sleeping it looked. Must have backed up over it the night before; laying in the sun, dreaming of a mouse! Wait, is this the snake, that maybe ate the mouse; that was in the glove box, that got away? Called my neighbor for help, I'm in the car! After my heroic neighbor came over; got the shovel and said "It is dead, a garter snake you see!" The snake had fallen to the ground, leaving its outline upon my tire. Down the road I went shaken, trying to catch my breath for all that it's worth; picked up my daughter who shook with laughter and all of her girth! So for now, check your tires; make sure they are ready, to roll down the hill: no extra hitch hikers allowed! The next thing I encounter was a skunk strolling across the road,,, Please don't spray, I say; I will stop and let youpass.., just go, go on your way! Sitting in the chair reading a book one sunny afternoon, when out of the corner of my eye, there was motion and now eyes upon me! "What, whatis that?" Climbed up on to my deck, there sat a squirrel... eye to eye we stared, when the dog spotted it and started to bark! Off it scampered to who knows where. Mondays, fun days .... you say, don't ask, rll tell...Septembei" 12th... woken up of a deep, deep sleep; I feel this bite upon my eye... A mosquito? A spider? Swollen eye is what I have; red & bitten, drawn of blood., is it Halloween? NO, you say,, woe is me, only Monday! No, wait, not over yet .... leaving church upon eight that night; driving home in the dark with the stars shining bright, what do I see?? This H U G E hairy spider upon my window ! Oh no.. I can't see... Needing to get out of the car, turned left and pulled into the drive of our chiropractor; running to the door and frightening the children. "1 need to speak to your dad", I say.. "Help, help, there is a giant spider on my windshield".... "Inside you ask?" "Yes",,, I say. His son, Trevor saved the day! He caught it, a wolf spider, it was. Putting it in his mom's Tupperware, all smiles, being brave; my hero, this child and now I can be on my way! What, you say, was this the wolf spider that I sent rolling off the deck that other day? Coming back to haunt me? Oh me, oh my, what will the day of October 31st bring my way? Come Wednesday, what may, got in my car to drive away. Turned on the a/c and glistening in the sunset I see; blowing in the air all over the seat and upon the dash is this sparkle-y web! So now off to the car wash I go, into Ramona before I shop. Oh my goodness, when is this going to end? County living at its best; for right now, I just need some rest! 6.Bed Full Service Hospice & Dementia Case by Case License SnJor CQre #374601019 SUNCREST LODGE 34540 Engineem Road and Highway 79 17601 765-0065 i WISDOM WITHIN H EALI NG ARTS Children & Senior Massage Special ,48 / *$6o/hr Reg.

Meanwhile, in medium bowl, ons By Bill Fink Community Service, Service, Service The past five years or so as I've traveled around the country,. I make it a point to visit other Legion Posts. More often than not, the Posts I visit are small, using donated space from a bar, commercial building or even a member's home. The organizations also tend to be small with some not even having a SAL contingent. Using ourown local Post as a standard, I was initially surprised that the limit of other Legion sponsored activity, is maybe an annual or bi-annual picnic or dinner and perhaps sponsoring a Little League team. Of course there are other organizations that are active in their communities but I haven't been to a post in which all three branches of the Legion are as active and beneficial to their communities' as our own Post 468 in Julian. Nationally, Legion, SAL and Auxiliary Posts raise millions and millions of dollars for their national programs. However, in the case of our own town, you would have to go a long way to find a community who benefits more than Julian in consistent, frequent and large donations and activities that benefit both the people of our community and Legion members as well. I don't have statistics, but based on the population of Julian and the money and services donated by our Post on a per capita basis, iiie00ii] wou,sve**or,ourso*** Q: I have a wine set that was made by the Asa G. Neville glass by Larry Cox company, but I have not been "Bambi" Wall Pocket Q: I have a wall pocket of "Bambi" that dates from the mid-1950s. It is clearly marked "BambL Walt Disney Productions" and is in almost perfect condition with no chips or damage. The original price sticker of 80 cents is still attached to its bottom. Is this a yard-sale item or something to save for my son? -- Rachel, Bethalto, IlL A: The scene of Bambi learning to walk on ice from the original 1942 Disney production might just be the most famous sequence the studio ever produced for a feature cartoon. Your wall pocket is worth about $75. If it has sentimental value, I stir brownie mix, 1/4 cup melted butter, brown sugar, vanilla, instant coffee, sugar and eggs until well-blended. Drop batter by small spoonfuls over baked layer. Carefully spread over baked layer; sprinkle with reserved 1/3 cup cereal mixture. 4..Bake 30 to 34 minutes or until brownies look dry and set. (Brownies will be soft; do not use toothpick test). Cool completely, about 1 1/2 hours. Cut into 4 rows by 4 rows. Store tightly covered. (Recipe variation based on one from Chex.com.

Ange/a Shelf Medearis is an award-winning children's author, culinary historian and author of seven cookbooks, including "The New African-American Kitchen" and her new cookbook, "The Kitchen Diva Cooks!" She's the executive producer and host of "The Kitchen Diva!" cooking show on Hu/u.com. Visit her website at www.divapro. com. 2011 King Features Syndicate, Inc. able to find out anything about this company. Can you fill in some of the blanks for me? -- Helen, St. Charles, Mo. A: The company was founded by Asa G. Neville in 1891 and operated in Blairsville, Pa. It made globes for kerosene lamps in addition to battery jars, decanters, novelties and, yes, wine sets. Collectors are especially attracted to the various pressed glass patterns that the Neville glass works produced. Q: I was a big fan of David Cassidy of the Partridge Family during the 1970s, and I purchased several of his comic books, including issues from February 1972, May 1973 and September 1973. Are they worth anything? --Debbie, Hammond, La. A: The first David Cassidy comic book was issued by Chadton in February 1972, and that :premiere issue is worth about $25 in near-mint condition. The other two are worth in the $10 to $15 range, again depending on condition. Q: I found several pieces of art while sorting through my father's estatel They include work by Enoch Kelly Haney and Scott Bennett. Calls to dealers in New Mexico have gone nowhere. -- Alan, Albuquerque, N.M. A: I would begin by hiring the services of a good art appraiser to determine current values. You should expect to pay for this service. Two established art appraisers in Santa Fe are Suzanne Staley, 888-758-1118, and Bernard Ewell, 505-954- 4113.

Consider some of the activities that go on at the Post. The Sons of the American Legion put on about twelve breakfasts a year benefiting local organizations, mostly kids, or someone that comes to them that needs help. The Legion and Auxiliary do the same thing. The result is thousands and thousands dollars donated to locals that need it. A front-page article in this paper last year showed our Legion presenting a $6,000.00 check to the High School for books. Almost every Friday night SAL, the Auxiliary and Legion are making great dinners for the public to enjoy at a great price. The Fourth of July BBQ is a 65-year-old standard in this town, and "The Dance" put on by SAL is their biggest fundraiser going into its sixth year. The Auxiliary works tirelessly to benefit our wounded Vets in local hospitals and the SAL breakfast benefiting the Warrior Foundation has generated over $20,000.00 in three years. Coming up on October 15th, will be the 3rd Annual Chili Cook Off. While this event is limited to twenty-five entries, I can see this going big. Get your applications at the Legion. I love Chili and if I don't enter my Cincinnati Delight, I'm going to lobby hard to be a judge. In January, the Sons will hold their annual Art Contest to develop a logo for "The Dance". This event saw the first year draw eight entries and this year over a hundred. In June the Sons will donate a scholarship to a worthy': September 28, 2011 JHS student. Every year our ladies sell poppies for your lapel or hat to raise money for our Vets in hospitals, put together fabulous gift baskets for many of the Post events and are there pitching in whether the event is their own or a SAL or Legion function. I know that I haven't mentioned all the events, financial donations and the labor that's donated by the Post. But the point of this pat on the back, is to let you know that this organization cares and works hard for its community. There are some people that don't have great things to say, but show me an organization in "this" town that does more. Whether you belong to the Legion or not, the chances are that you or your children have been the beneficiary of their largesse. If you are coming to the breakfasts, dinners, BBQ's, dances or any of the other events, you are contributing and are part of the solution to how a community can come together and take care of themselves. Couldn't do it without you. Here Ye! Here Ye! Friday night the Ladies are in the kitchen cooking steak and chicken kabobs. As usual the meal comes with all the sides and salad. Even dressing is included, wow. Dessert, coffee and iced tea are standards. Don't forget the first Sunday breakfast by SAL in October to help raise funds for the Junior High trip to Washington D.C. These kids did a great job last month and SAL hopes you come out in a big way to support this very worthy cause. Eagle Football continued from page 9 The Eagles may have lost, but you got our money's worth out of this one. The game wasn't decided until the last 6 seconds of the game. As I said last week, this is a young, resilient team. The next three games, against Mountain Empire (there) and under the lights against Holtville at home and Calipatria (Homecoming) also under the Julian night sky, will test the boys mightily. Travel on down to Mountain Empire next Friday night to cheer on your Eagles. Beware, the Red Hawks concession stand may be selling counterfeit apple pie by the slice. Don't say you weren't warned.
