Bird’s Eye View

Greetings one and all. If you are sitting comfortably then I shall begin. But only to tell you that I am sort of taking the week off and this week’s column will just be providing the Public Service Announcements. It’s nothing personal; there is nobody else. I just need a little “alone time,” and I will speak to you next week.
Public Service Announcements. Calendars and pens at the ready. #141. High school sports play-offs this week — Boys’ Soccer today, Nov 13 at 2:30pm at home, and if they win they will host the Championship Final on Saturday, November 16 at 2pm; and Girls’ Volleyball, who have a first round bye today and then play on Saturday, November 16 at 7pm at the high school gym. #142. The Vets from Mendocino Animal Hospital are down to one visit a month to the Valley at this point. The next two such occasions are tomorrow, November 14 and then next month on Thursday, December 12. This wonderful service takes place at the Anderson Valley Farm Supply from 2-3.30pm and new customers are very welcome. #143. A new “Open Mic Night” has been introduced to the Valley. This will be the second such evening, held at Lauren’s Restaurant, and hosted by Kayla Sorensen and Dennis Hudson, on the third Saturday of each month – in this case, at 9pm on Saturday, November 16. It is hoped that all the Valley’s talented musicians/poets/writers/performers, etc will move out of their living rooms and share their talents with the outside world while also supporting other such artists. “Come on, down!” You know you want to. #144. The Boonville Winter Market is now on both its winter schedule and venue. It can be enjoyed on Saturday mornings at The Boonville General Store from 11am-1pm. #145. For those so inclined, the monthly Community Drum Session is this evening Wednesday, November 13 at The Grange. Contact Rob 3897 or Andy 3020 for further details.
Here is the menu for the Community Lunches at the Senior Center in the Veterans Hall in Boonville over the next week. The Center asks for a $6 donation from Seniors and charges $7 for Non-Seniors. Tomorrow, Thursday, November 14, the lunch, always served by Marti Titus and her crew at 12.15pm, will be Vegetable Beef Soup, Garlic Bread, Arugula Salad, Bulgur Salad, and Bread Pudding for dessert. Then next Tuesday, November 19, the menu will feature Chicken Enchiladas, Corn, Black Beans, Carrot Salad, with Better Cake for dessert. Remember, all ages are welcome! Hope to see you there.
Time to take my leave. Until we talk again, Keep the Faith; be careful out there; stay out of the ditches; think good thoughts; and may your god go with you. One final request, “Let us prey.” Humbly yours, Turkey Vulture. PS. Contact me with words of support/abuse through the Letters Page or at email@example.com. PPS. Keep on wagging that tail, Fred. … Is that ‘lafter’ I hear, Carroll? … Keep up the good work, Round-eyed Robin.
