Good morning everyone and it’s Friday, the beginning of our last weekend before Halloween and as you probably know, there are a lot of parties scheduled for Halloween.  I’ll keep you posted if I hear about any new ones.  Today’s Kat’s Korner is going to be sort of a public service day for San Felipe, not that a lot of my columns aren’t for the benefit of San Felipe, but this is a different take.  First, I would like to present you with an announcement from The San Felipe Association of Retired Persons or SFARP as it’s referred to:

Good morning everyone or I should say “afternoon” as it is Wednesday late afternoon.  I don’t know why, but I got up early and had planned to write Kat’s Korner for Wednesday.  We ended up having pancakes and watching an old movie and I went back to bed until this afternoon.  I must have needed the rest, but wasting an entire day bothers me.  I did go to the Tequila Pig appreciation party on the beach at Pete’s Camp on Tuesday.  It was very nice and the weather was great.  Thank you Debra and Dori for all your hard work.  For those of you who don’t know what this club does, or if you’d care to read their mission statement, you can go on to Facelessbook and read and join if you like.  You don’t have to drink to enjoy the group.  All of the money earned from events are shared amongst the different charities in San Felipe.  Here’s the link to their page and it’s a closed group, so you’ll have to ask to join, but it’s worth it.  Photo by Kat Hammontre.

Good morning everyone and we have another beautiful October day in San Felipe.  Some friends of mine are going sailing today and what a nice day for that, as long as we have some wind.  Tuesdays are always a hard day to write a column about what’s going on in San Felipe because I think I’ve already told you what was going on today in yesterday’s Korner.  At any rate, I don’t like to start the day off with bad news, but San Felipe has lost another long time resident.  Barry Korns died peacefully with his daughter Kristen after suffering a stroke.  I’ve know Barry since back in the Net days and we’ve lost a great guy.  So, Rest in Peace Barry and I hope your pain eases as time goes by Kristin.  Photo provided by Kristin Korns Balac.
