It really looks like fall outdoors! Autumn is my favorite season and we can just skip winter! Anyhow, we are looking forward to Scare on the Square and beyond! Don’t forget the haunted house will be open both the weekend before Halloween and the weekend of Halloween.
Friday and Saturday from 6:00 to 7:00 is the milder version for younger children and those who want not scream so much! After 7:00 is the full scare. Believe me, the high school actors will do their level best to make your trip unforgettable!
Ch. did an adult review of “The Color of Law” by Mark Gimenez. Amazing book! Since C. enjoys books with attorneys, trials, motions and briefs (C. also likes author David Rosenfelt), this book kept her reading every page and not wanting the book to end. “The Color of Law” is about attorney A. Scott Feeney who is from Dallas, Texas. He was a star football player in college and is working in a high-priced law-firm, has a wife who likes to spend money and enjoy the country club life and has a daughter, Boo, who is a tomboy at heart.
Attorney Feeney has been asked by a Judge to defend, free of charge, an African American prostitute who is also a drug addict and accused of murdering the son of a Texas millionaire senator/presidential hopeful.
This book is not fast paced but will take you through changes in Attorney Feeney’s life and his life decision – does he work only for money or does he want to do good for humanity. The book is in hard cover, sadly, not large print. 401 pages
