Wild Releases #414 - #418

In the days before political correctness, one could say that today was a perfect Indian summer day. And that would have coincided nicely with our trip to Ligonier, Pa., for Fort Ligonier Days--a three-day festival commemorating the anniversary of the October 12, 1758, battle between British and French forces during the French and Indian War.

Today we can only say that it was a very warm, summer-like day, the likes of which we don't see too often in October in this part of the world. Sister No. 3, Nephew No. 1, Mom, and I enjoyed this last bit of summer by partaking in Boy Scout Nachos, Pulled Pork Potatoes, Pumpkin Gobs, and Holy Hotdogs. We also looked at all the craft booths we could find while I left a few books around town: "The Barking Ghost," by R.L. Stine; "To Kill a Mockingbird," by Harper Lee; "The Hunt Club," by John Lescroart; "Things Not Seen," by Andrew Clements; and "The Horribly Haunted School," by Margaret Mahy.
