President Carter turns 99
The former U.S. president – the oldest living commander-in-chief in the nation's history – turned 99 on October 1, a milestone that seemed impossible when he entered hospice in February 2023. The Jimmy Carter Library & Museum and The Carter Center co-hosted a 3-day long birthday celebration in his honor in Atlanta, starting on Friday, September 29.
Happy Birthday, President Carter!
We are definitely into the fall season here. Seems like it is starting early. I can remember waiting for the leaves to turn in October, but we are already into a lot of color. Everyone wondered what would happen to the color with all the rain this year, but at the moment it looks like it's going to be pretty special.
That's all for this week. Thanks for following along. Get out to fish, the most beautiful season of the year doesn't last long enough! Here's Rich Sagar with a nice rainbow from this week. See you next week.
