There’s a new twig on the family tree

A look at life in North bend through the eyes of a local.

I have two corrections to make to last week’s Nuggets. Children’s

Librarian Kathy Goble wanted me to thank all the volunteers and

people who helped out with the Halloween Carnival. I also forgot to include

Trish and Taylor in the list of people who helped. Please forgive me for

these errors.


Caryn Sipos, YA librarian for North Bend/Snoqualmie/Fall City

libraries, is holding a Poetry Coffeehouse for teens 12-18 from 7 to 9

p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 17. Sponsored

by the Snoqualmie Friends of the Library, it will be held at Isadora’s Antiques

& Cafe in Snoqualmie. Read your own poetry, perform a song you wrote,

give a dramatic reading, or just enjoy the talents of others. There will be one

free coffee drink or soda, compliments of the Friends.


We have a new twig on the family tree. My niece Kristin and her

husband Darren are proud to present their new daughter Quinn Marie. She

weighed in on Nov. 6 at 8 pounds, 8 ounces. She is their first child, and my

parent’s third great-grandchild this year. All three are scheduled to be present

at Thanksgiving dinner, so I am looking forward to that. Another blessing

to count.


Thought for the Week: If we are brave enough to love, strong

enough to forgive, generous enough to rejoice in another’s happiness, and

wise enough to know there is enough love to go around for us all, then we

can achieve fulfillment. – Rabbi Harold Kushner
