The temperatures are getting cooler and the leaves are turning so it looks like fall in Centerville. I am guessing our male population is itching to find those big deer now that it is cool. I know Darrel likes to wait until after the first freeze to hunt but that didn’t stop him and Dylan from gathering their camouflage clothing so they will be ready.

I spent last Saturday morning with my Aunt Frances Hall, and then met Carrie Spear and my sister, Laura Thompson, for lunch at Old Chicago Pizza in downtown Conway.

I was surprised to see a parade in my rear view mirror as I waited for Laura and Carrie and later learned the Conway Firefighters were having a parade to kick off the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure. Carrie recommended the Hawaiian pizza and I had not tried it so I was quite impressed.

It does not matter where we are or what we are doing, we always have a good time and I am thankful for the close relationship I have with them.

After church last Sunday, the kids and I visited with Jim and Sherry Freeman for a bit. We then drove to Conway and met my mom and other sister, Andrea Hall and Mary Hall, at Colton’s Steakhouse in Conway. Dylan and Kaylee both love to go out to eat and Colton’s is a good place to visit without feeling rushed to leave after the meal. We decided to go visit with Frances afterwards since it was such a pretty day. Mary and Laura both had the same idea so it was nice to continue our visit.

We had to rush to get everything ready to start a week at work but it was worth it. Enjoy your week and drive through the Centerville Community and witness the beauty of fall if you get a chance.
