Another week of up and down weather. Monday and Wednesday nice.
Tuesday, Thursday and Friday we were blessed with rain. Saturday was another nice day. Sunday was something else. Bad thunder storm with high winds, rain and lightning. We were on our way home from Litchfield and it got so windy and the rain came so fast. It poured gang busters and the wind was wicked. In a very short time the wind had blown limbs off trees and knocked some trees down, landing in the road or along the road. Getting closer to Towanda, it wasn’t so bad, but still rained all the way home. I did hear that the storm was as bad here too. I know folks were complaining at the picnic about their gardens not doing so well because of all the rain and not enough sun. Half the week is to be stormy and the last half nice again, if you can believe that.
TJ, Allison, Jase, along with Wesson, enjoyed a few days at their home on Church Street and visited his parents, Ted and Mary on Maple Terrace. They all celebrated TJ’s birthday. Nice time for all.
Joe and Diane Fanning, Molly, Landenberg, and grand daughter, Haley Latch, St. Georges, DE, spent some time at their home here and got a lot of projects done, with Haley being a big help.
St. Vladimir’s Church has pierogies for sale. To order, call 570-928-1099.
Bob, Jr. and Tyler McGuire, Hunlock Creek, stopped by on Monday on their way to RIT, Rochester, NY, where Tyler will begin his Freshman year there. He’s going to be studying in the Computer field. We wish him good luck.
Happy Birthday wishes to Mary (Maximiek) Santiago, 21st; Macrina Pochatko, 23rd, Karly Amon, 26th; and Gaige Burke, 29th. Hope you all have a nice day.
Happy Anniversary to Jason and Heather Burke as they celebrate on the 26th. Have a good day.
School will be starting on Thursday, the 22nd, so please be aware of kids waiting for the buses. Use common sense and slow down when you see the bus and the kids too.
Don and Renie (Kravitz) Risser spent a week in town along with their son, Aaron, and granddaughter, Leah, and the family dogs. They went to the Eagles Mere Craft Show and stopped at the Eagles Mere Air and Auto Museums. Time was spent paddle boarding, hiking, and fishing. Leah caught the most fish–16!!! Don spotted a bear and her three cubs one morning. Sienna Miller, a cousin, spent a day at the house. On Sunday, Mary Kravetz and Annabelle Kravetz came for brunch. Everyone enjoyed the nice weather–except for the first night with no power or telephone!
Sullivan County Fair is coming up soon, along with other things going on around the County. Keep an eye on the Sully to find out and it might be something you’d be interested in.
Guess that’s the news for now. Enjoy your week. Just keep the umbrella and rain boots handy and you’ll be fine. Have news, call me at 570-928-9238; mail me; see me; or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’ll get it in for you. I’ll be here next time and thanks for reading.
