You know it's quiet in Christopher Creek when I have nothing to talk about but some dumb birds sitting in a tree. But these birds are really funny. Every morning when I take my daughter to the bus stop these big birds are just hanging out in a dead tree across from Tall Pines Market.
Debbie Aschbrennar, owner of the store, said they are California Vultures. It seems like not just the people from California are moving here, but so are the birds.
Monday was the mass exit of people from Christopher Creek. Everyone thought if they left early in the morning they would beat the traffic, but at 10 a.m. in the morning it was at a standstill on Highway 260 from Christopher Creek into town.
Well, the last big holiday of the summer is over and now we move into fall, which is my favorite time of the year. The elk will be bugling real soon and that is a sound I really enjoy. It's really cooling off at night and it is great sleeping weather.
The Firebelles Labor Day activities were a total success with all baked goods and brats being sold out. Thanks go out to the wonderful helpers.

The Firebelles will be giving a Fireman's Appreciation Luncheon on Sept. 23 after Drivers Training at Camp Tontozona for the Christopher/ Kohl's Fire Department and its families.
The Firebelles will need nominations for new board members in October if you want to get involved in something good.
Happy birthday to Anthony Acuna who will be celebrating his 40th birthday Sept. 16. Anthony is the chef at Creekside. He is also looking for a place to put his trailer. They are cleaning out Creekside Trailer Park and everyone left needs to go. It looks really nice and residents are glad to see it cleaned up, but some of them need places to go. Call Creekside if you can help.
Thanks to whoever cleaned up the Landmark. It looks nice and residents are glad to see it cleaned. A little birdie told me this morning that Kevin Mystrom, previous owner of the Landmark, saw my column, and he and Leona went over and cleaned up the mess someone made. Thanks for doing that. We all know it wasn't your responsibility.
On Sunday, Sept. 10 at 6 p.m. internationally renowned concert pianist, Sam Rotman, will be performing his music and testimony for free. Come listen to the music at the Christopher Creek Bible Fellowship Chapel.
