The 6th Annual St. Vincent de Paul Friends of the Poor Walk coincides this year with the last day of the St. William's Fall Rummage Sale. It's the best of both worlds. Best time to save big money on household items during Saturday's "fill a bag" sale, and the walk is the best way to help us help the needy. No longer will you have to wonder what to do with all that $$ you'll be saving at the semi-annual rummage sale. We have just the thing, and it's always a perfect fit!
I'm sitting outside one evening last week relaxing after work and enjoying the beautifully mild weather. A huge hawk, a chickenhawk if you can believe it, alights atop the nearest utility pole. I can't risk the sound and movement of going indoors for the camera, as it sat only 50 feet away, so I just watched it.
This is the final week of summer and it feels like it. It was very cool, and extremely foggy in spots, early Saturday morning and a chilly rain all day today. I'll take that any day over last year's hot, dry summer though.
A friend recently commented that none of the 25 Civil War soldiers honored during Saturday afternoon's Battle of Chickamauga memorial service were from the City of Waukesha. Didn't surprise me. The battle was fought 150 years ago this month while another 33 years would pass before Waukesha even became a city!
