Had some rainy weather and then the wicked storm hit on Wednesday. From what I heard, it poured, wind blew and was just horrible. We were gone, so missed it this time. Hopefully, nice weather for the week, but I did hear more thunderstorms possible. Guess we just have to put up with what we get.

Bob and I spent a few days with family in Richmondville, NY. Many family members were there to attend the Memorial service for my sister, Margi Decatur, who recently lost her battle with cancer. Was sad, but a nice celebration of her life. All I can say is, “CANCER SUCKS”!!
TJ, Allison, and Jase Lowden, along with Wesson, Marlton, NJ, spent some vacation time at their home on Church Street. Was good weather most of the time while they were here. They also visited back and forth with his parents, Ted and Mary, who live on Maple Terrace, just across the back yard from them.

I made a goof in the 11th August news. I had Happy Birthday to Kevin Partington. It should have read Kevin Pequignot. I didn’t notice it and Kevin P. called to tell me about it. Sorry for the mistake.
