At Syringa, Lorraine Smith is canning quince jelly and marmalade, Becky Jackson is cleaning up after coming home from hunting camp, which is harder than the actual hunting, and River Dance Lodge and Syringa Cafe are going into winter mode until early spring.

In Lowell, the Ryan’s at Wilderness Inn have cut back hours to breakfast and lunch, just for a few more weeks, then they open one more night for the Lowell QRU Christmas party. Three Rivers Cabins are busy with the hunters for this late whitetail season.

Fenn Ranger Station up the Selway Road still has some roofing workers out in the cold fixing stuff, they come back to Lowell wet, tired, in the dark of night (which starts at 4:30 p.m. this time of year). Only ones more miserable than the roofers when they come in are the hunters!!

I’m excited about the upcoming holiday season! We get to give thanks, we enjoy each other’s company in front of the fireplace with great food and family!

Old, young, rich, or poor, Democrat, Republican, we are all alike and life is good, and for that I am thankful! Wait, did I say Republican?
