Sam has been keeping the Shuffleboard in shape for a number of years.  


Sailor was wearing his winter coat today. I was cold enough to dig into his wool for warmth but he didn't appreciate it.

The beginning of the Checker game season.

This squirrel was so surprised when he saw me that he stared in open-face wonder. Then he told the other squirrels that I am at the park. But I quickly biked off as I didn't have any peanuts.

Thanksgiving Dinner

I went pass Lapp's Bike Shop and saw this beautiful, colorful bike sitting out front. I love bright cheerful colors. The bike's colors match every dress a woman wears. 

In the shop Jake asked me how my Thanksgiving was? When I told him I was sick and didn't have an appetite for food. But today I am doing fine, feeling good. Jake & Charity lost no time in giving me a Thanksgiving meal. I think they cleaned out their fridge and send the leftovers home with me. And they are going to start their diet today. I got the Roasht, a mixed salad of vegetables, Apple/Cranberry Salad, Pumpkin Pie without the crust and Cabbage slaw. Very good eating. 
Thank you Jake & Charity Lapp.

Pioneer Bus Arrives

While waiting for the Pioneer Bus to come in, this man limped up and asked for a ride. So Perry and Edna gave him a ride to his living quarters. 

The Pioneer Bus was a bit late coming in, so one snoozed in the truck bed and Leander checks his phone. 

And the bus arrived. I don't know if it was completely full but a lot of passengers got off.

And each one finds his living quarters.

Elmer and Marjorie, good friends at the Thanksgiving Dinner.

I don't know who is doing the talking but Gertie and Carl are doing the listening. I love how intensive they listen.

For a number of years the Tourist Mennonite Church in Pinecraft cooks a Thanksgiving Dinner for locals. Their members invite whoever they want to. Tonight they had set the tables for about a hundred people. It was a good evening.

This corner of the Pinecraft Park looks so peaceful.

Since the bike can't pedal its own wheels, 
it gets a ride home.
