Welcome to the second week of October 2020. We have weathered storms, shutdowns, and are still bracing for the upcoming elections. No matter what your party affiliations or political leanings we hope that every single adult person who is eligible to register is registered and votes. Your mail-in ballot will work, your early voting will work, and even showing up on the day of the election will work. You simply cannot affect change without participating in the process. It is shaping up to be a very interesting election day. And if every single person in America votes there are bound to be great changes as well.
If you haven’t been out to the market recently you might as well come on by and grab up some fall decorations and knick-knacks. It is the time of year that we hope the weather will cool off enough for the kids to enjoy dressing up for Halloween. Of course, with all the strangeness going around, social distancing, and what have you there are bound to be some changes in our regular routines. You might as well have a little fun with it too.
It’s hot and the holidays are coming soon. The most notable one is Independence Day. The day we declared in one voice that we are Independent of England! We fought and won our freedom to create a more perfect union. Of course, establishing justice for ourselves and our prosperity was why we ordained and established the Constitution in the first place. Just celebrating that is more than enough to enjoy this holiday weekend coming up with your friends and family…while respecting the social distancing thing too.
Well, it is finally the end of May. We are all getting out and about and trying our best to return to normal. Or, I should say, establishing a new normal. Businesses and services are fully open or at least partially operating. Now, all we need to do is get more people working, earning, and spending that money on essentials and fun things too. More vendors are coming over to the Market to start a new business even. That is really very exciting. You just never know what you are going to find here so come on down and visit with our old vendors, say, hi! to the new ones and find something you really need or at least cannot live without.
We hope everyone will be keeping themselves and their families safe this normally getting out in nature weekend. Even though we are not having the usual festivals, parades, and drunken weekend camping at the springs kinds of things (well maybe some of you are), we all should take the time to remember and honor those who have died in the service of our country. Yes, please have fun with the kids while keeping at least 6 feet away from strangers, eat lots of watermelons, go swimming if you can find a place with very little people, or even enjoy a bit of camping in the middle of the National forests. Those are all fun activities we can still do.
