I think we had our first “official” snow fall. As I sit here typing my news at 6 a.m. Monday morning, the plow is going around taking care of the roads. School is on a two hour delay. Seems like a heavy, wet snow. If you have to go out, take a little extra time and be safe out there. We’ve really been lucky so far with just a few flurries off and on. Sunday we had non-stop rain all day long. Good thing that wasn’t snow. It is that time of year so we have to put up with it. I did hear it’s to warm up later in the week again. Here is the “recipe for the sidewalk de-icer that you will be using soon, I imagine. Mix 1 teaspoon of Dawn liquid, 1 tablespoon rubbing alcohol and one-half gallon of water. Pour over your walkways and they won’t re-freeze.
On Friday, Les and Kathy Isett, Rose Bizup, Cindy Neufer, Barbara Bell and myself got together to do the Christmas decorating at the Monument. Weather was perfect to get the job done. It does look really pretty with it all lit up. Will stay until after Orthodox Christmas which is the 7th of January. Enjoy as you drive down the snake into town and see what we have done.
I guess Saturday was a full day of fun for all the activities that were going on in Dushore. I know everyone had a great time.
I guess hunting season is over for now. Will resume after Christmas, from what I’ve been told. There sure were lots of buck pictures in last week’s Sully so there were some lucky hunters. Good luck to all on the next hunt.
The Christmas party for the Lopez kids was held on Sunday at the Orthodox Church Hall. Was a fun time for all who gathered there. Santa stopped by to hand out gifts to all the good little boys and girls. Rudolph also made an appearance. Thanks to Jodi Brumwell and all her helpers for the work they put into this to event again this year.
On Saturday, Bob and I went to a Christmas luncheon with a few of his classmates from Forty Fort High School. This was held at Angelo’s in Wyoming. Was great visiting with those we had not seen for some time and the weather was quite nice.
On Sunday, Bob and I attended the Che-Hanna Rock and Mineral club party held at Wild Fire Grille and Bar in Towanda. Despite the rain, everyone made it ok and all that were there had an enjoyable time. At least it wasn’t snow.
Here’s something for everyone who hates to clean the bath tub. Use 1 cup of Heinz Cleaning Vinegar and 1 cup of Blue (has to be Blue) Dawn. Heat the vinegar and put into a spray bottle. Add the Dawn and shake. Will be a little thick. Spray on the tub and leave it for an hour. Rinse off.
Happy Birthday wishes to Carter Vermiere and Austin Stavisky, 17th; Rev Mother Christophora and Christian Santarelli, 10th; Alyssa Pequignot, 20th. Have a nice day.
I think there are still events going on around the County, so keep an eye on the Sully and Face Book to check them out. Might be something you would be interested in.
There will be no Sully Christmas week, so if you have news, get it to me by Sunday, the 17th, to make that last issue.
Hope you all have your tree up, presents under the tree and your shopping and baking all done. I know Santa is watching all the kids to see who’s been naughty and who’s been nice, so be on your best behavior, not only now but for the whole of 2024 too.
I guess that’s the news for now. Enjoy your day. Will probably need the boots and the shovel for a bit. Have news, give me a call at 570-928-9238; mail me; see me; or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will get it in for you. Thanks for reading and I’ll be here next time.
