The second to last Wednesday Mountain Fresh Farmers Market is today in Oakland. Many of the farmers have had frost, but there are still greens and tomatoes from vendors with high tunnels, and potatoes, sweet potatoes and other “from the ground” vegetables as well as other storage items such as winter squash, garlic, beets, carrots, and more.

Mary Callis of Garrett Lakes Arts Festival (GLAF) asked us to remind our readers that their Ballet Theater of Maryland (BTM) production of Alladin and the Prophecy of the Ring is coming to the lake on November 3rd at 2:00 pm in the Garrett College auditorium.  As always, we expect a great show from GLAF and BTM and I am sure they won’t disappoint.

It’s Team Trivia Night at the Greene Turtle this evening from 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm.  Fun times and a chance to win nice prizes.

FINALLY: Have a great (over the) Hump Day folks! But, before you leave today’s Daily Notes, please read this:

SAMMY’S LIFE STORY JUST GOT A LOT HAPPIER!
There are so many cats at the Garrett County Animal Shelter, many who come in as strays and are not claimed by an owner. We work closely with the staff there to see that every adoptable cat has a chance of being adopted. It’s the basis of our mission. Sammy was once such cat who was not well socialized with people or other animals when she came to us. We worked lovingly and tirelessly with her to get her where she needed to be. Sammy wasn’t with us for too long when a young couple came in and fell in love with this beautiful girl. Sammy, being the now well-socialized cat she had become, won the young couples hearts. They wanted to adopted right away and add another fur baby to their home. Our staff in the Adoption Wing worked like the well-integrated team they are to get Sammy ready. Other staff members answered all of the couple’s questions about Sammy and what she needed from them at home. Soon, the three of them were on their way to their happily ever after. 

Are you ready to add a feline or canine companion to your home and heart? Please ADOPT and never shop or take a “free to a good home” animal. All pets adopted from HART are up-to-date on their shots, defleaed/dewormed, microchipped, spayed/neutered, and assessed for basic health and behavior. To learn more about adopting from HART for Animals, go to www.hartforanimals.org/how-to-adopt. I don’t know the young couple discussed above and pictured below, but I do know I like them and thank them!

Well, yesterday started out really foggy in most places, but the fog burned off and it was a decent day.  Today’s weather will include showers, mainly after 8:00 am. High near 58 with a low in the evening of 39. Winds could gust as high as 26 mph. Chance of precipitation is 100%.

When I first saw this photo taken by Maura Sacco, I did a double take.  It appeared that there was an owl in the tree, but it really is just the tree.  A bit of an optical illusion.Thanks Maura.

Owl in a tree?

Congratulations are in order as the Garrett College cross country team took home the Western Pennsylvania Collegiate Conference team title last week. The newly reinstated program had three finishers in the top five.  Way to go gentlemen.

It’s a bird. It’s a plane. It’s a FROG!  This is a real frog on the window glass the other day at the college in McHenry. While the photo gives the illusion of size and height (and its ability to leap tall buildings…) s/he is just a regular-size amphibian. To my knowledge, there are no giant mutant frogs invading the lake.  But, you never know… Be on the look-out!

There’s a Young Artists Workshop this evening at the Ruth Enlow Library in Oakland. This looks like it is both informative and fun. Find out more here.  While society increasingly puts emphasis on STEM education, and for a lot of good reasons, I believe in STEAM education, adding arts makes for a well-rounded individual. Just a little editorial.

Finally, Sarah and I have been very busy preparing for our 2019 Deep Creek Times People’s Choice Challenge celebration party (and related program guide, etc.).  The celebration will be held on Wednesday, October 30th from 5:00 pm – 6:30 pm in the GIEC on the Garrett College campus in McHenry.  We will announce all of the winners at that event, so if you were nominated, you definitely want to attend.

This week’s fall foliage report is issued — I’m not sure what stage they are reporting Garrett County to be in right now. The trees were really starting to look good early two weeks ago but then it rained and it sort of stalled the change. Now, this map shows sort of heading to “past peak”? But, I’m looking out the window and I see a few bare trees but also a majority of green…. sigh …. I guess we just have to be patient.
