I often say to my wife that I have a kindergartner’s spirit trapped in a grown man’s body.
That could explain why I still can’t color within the lines.
If you are good at coloring within the lines, an activity I spotted on the Queensbury Senior Center website may be of interest.
The center will hold “Coloring for a Cause” from 1 to 3 p.m. Dec. 9, a group activity to enjoy the recreational experience that has become popular the past couple of years of coloring in books designed for adults.
The center is also collecting adult coloring books, colored pencils, markers and tote bags to donate to residents at area nursing homes at Christmas.
The children’s department at Crandall Public Library is holding “Dinovember,” a monthlong celebration that uses imagination to understand prehistoric times, with special dinosaur exhibits, programs and activities throughout the month of November.
Meet the author
Bob Bayle, a historian from Glens Falls, will speak about his new book, “An Adirondack Portfolio: 1902 – 1935,” at 7 p.m. Thursday in the community room at Crandall Public Library.
The book is an anthology of hiking stories and photographs that his father, Francis Bayle, wrote and took.
Francis Bayle, an engineer for Glens Falls Portland Cement Co., was a longtime member of Adirondack Mountain Club and the Glens Falls Camera Club.
Francis edited High Spots, the newsletter of Adirondack Mountain Club, from 1928 to 1932.
The program is open to the public free of charge.
Hudson Headwaters Health Network, headquartered in Queensbury, announced it will benefit from the “Hannaford Helps” program in November.
The Hannaford supermarket on Burgoyne Avenue in Kingsbury will donate $1 to Hudson Headwaters for every reusable shopping bag purchased.
Operation Santa Claus
WCKM and WCQL radio stations announced the annual Operation Santa Claus Adopt A Child program to benefit children from needy families will begin on Tuesday.
Announcers will suggest toys that listeners can agree to purchase and drop off at local Warren Tire centers.
It’s time for the annual telling of an original politics joke: If Clark Kent ran for president, would he be supported by a Super PAC?
