II Panorama By Fawna Barrett I Winter is whistling at the comer, Dashes of misty rain dripped accom- paniment to the chilly breezes. Rain clung to the windows, metal pieces, at the grass and the weeds. Rain rubbed its way down your face chilling the skin. Shivers shook your insides de- spite wrapping the body in a heavy coat, recently pulled from the closet. Heavy, heavy clouds hung low in the sky. Car tires slup-slupped the pavement; shoes attracted bits of this and that as one crossed the yard; everything felt damp, edged with cold. Yes, winter is coming--maybe sooner than expected. Dig out the sweatshirts; dig out the boots; find the gloves, hopefully a pair at a time. The calendar page now reads No- vember. Snow birds are taking flight for warmer places. Like it or not, win- ter is near. 1 Central National Bank Mankato and Formosa wtUbe on Tuesday, Nov. 11 In Observance of Veterans Day Mankato 785-378-3162 Formoso 785-794-2211 I 0/0 Leasing Program Htmtlng ason Appeoaches, dm't hunt fer a 9eed deal on e Iron. see gevin at Renddl Brmdd Closed Tuesday, Nov. 11 in observance of of the Jamestown State Bank R' DALL, KAN. 66963 785-739-2212 I1[ New U and rendorhoo# ##s New name brand podumes and colognes Now shipman/ roonioaf Condlos / juoll Slaver low Corb Con o$ Check ou/ )'hanksg/ving #ores n Mankato Professional Pharmacy 125 N.
