A tree harvest has been happening in the woodlot to the right of the hill leading to Drumbo. It appears to be a harvest of walnut trees. The sign on the lot advises that people need to stay out of the lot for their safety. This seems like a good idea because there are many trees leaning so much that they look like they could fall to the ground at any time.
Halloween night was great, it drizzled a bit but everyone had lots of fun. I had a Cleopatra costume, my friend Ethan was a Zombie hunter. We went all over town and the decorations were so scary. Skye’s decorations were the scariest. He had a body hanging from a rope and a skeleton riding a sled through the air. There were also lots of really fun Halloween decorations. The costumes we saw were great too. There were cooks and lobsters, little red riding hood, Anna from Frozen, Wednesday from the Adams Family, and so many more. There was even a dog wearing a princess costume!! It got super rainy after Halloween was done – really happy it waited! Enjoy this Wolverton Halloween slideshow!
Konky is a gosling. Konky was found when Sam and Flynn Aikens were playing in their backyard. Konky came out of nowhere and started following them. The Aikens took him in. They kept him in a large pet carrier which they had outside during the day and inside at night. They fed him chick starter and water. When they first gave him water to drink, Konky jumped right into the water. He liked Steve the best.
On groundhog day all the kids got to stay home from school because buses were cancelled because of a big snowstorm. Daryll did a great job plowing the roads, and told us that Wolverton Wally says that spring is coming soon this year. (For a close-up of Daryll – see the breaking news story from last week)
