Design Wall and the End of October
It is the end of October. We went from hot at the beginning of the month to chilly on the last day of the month. I love October. It is probably the best month of the year. The leaves are turning. The big maple in the front yard is very pretty with its shades of red. For the most part the changing of the colors this far south just are not very attractive. Most of the trees are an ugly brown.
When October comes, I always give my little speech. And that is, all of you ladies that have not made your appointment or had your mammogram this year, need to do that. One in 7 women will get breast cancer. For those of you who are in guild, how many women are in the guild and then do the math. I belong to a bee. There are 21 of us in the bee. Three of us have had breast cancer and we have been lucky we are all long term survivors. Notice, I said long term. Breast cancer needs to be found early, so don't put off that mammogram. And for the men in everyone's life, I have known three men with breast cancer. It does happen. Men do need to do a breast exam and if they find something, don't think it will go away, get it checked.
Hope all is well on your end.
