This is the time of year when you dress in layers. It is cold in the morning, hot mid-day and then back to cold or cool. I am just happy that the really hot weather has left.

Happy Birthday to all who celebrated their day this past week. Big balloons go out to Adelaide Metters who celebrated on Sept. 17; Xeandre Miller and Cole Reed on Sept. 18; Jaydon Fuller and Luiz Lacerda on Sept. 19; Christopher Cardoza on Sept. 20; and to Kaio Santos Rodrigues, who celebrates his day on Sept. 23.

Special birthday wishes goes out to Sebastian Sequeira, who turned a year old on Sept. 15. He celebrated his day this past Sunday with family and friends of all ages. Here is to many more Happy Birthdays.

This has always been a special place and we take care of each other. This story touches my heart in so many ways. Holly Mercier was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis a while back. She is a landscaper and avid fisherman. She has been fighting for a long time but has slowly not been able to do the things she loves.

Well, Sandy Fisher and Jeff Komarinetz are making one wishes come true. They took a chair from a charter fishing boat, put a board at the feet, somehow put it in the sand and attached it to a trailer hitch on the back of a truck. They put Holly in the chair and a fishing rod in her hand. They have been out shark fishing many nights and she has joined the Derby for the first time in a few years. The smile they put on Holly’s face was more than anyone could ask for.

Traffic is a little more bearable. I had forgotten how hard it can be to get out of my yard some mornings because of parents bringing their kids to school and they don’t want to be late. But then after a turn onto the main road and there is a backup of those same parents trying to get to work.

I am not complaining but it takes great timing to avoid the pattern. But otherwise, the roads are not so busy.

We go out of the summer season and into wedding season. There were 40 weddings last weekend.

It is also tour bus season. The buses line the town parking lot after dropping off their travelers downtown. It is, after all, one of the prettiest times on the Island.

Have a great week and keep the home candles burning.
