Good Lord!!!! The weekend was the worst one so far. Had terrible winds, cold, some snow, more wind, more cold. Was only four degrees on Saturday and was MINUS 10 degrees on Sunday. Last I heard, the first three days of the week are not to be too good. Hope that’s wrong. We need a warm up. It sure was cold for the Winterfest activities over the weekend, but I imagine there were many, many brave soles who attended, no matter the temperature. Well, the Groundhog said early Spring, so I hope he’s right. I certainly won’t mind. Hope you all had a really nice Valentine’s Day, despite the cold.
TJ and Allison Lowden, Marlton, NJ, along with their new puppy, Wesson, spent the Holiday weekend at their home on Church Street. Allison’s brother, Jeff Corbin and his girlfriend, Megan Thomas, Marlton, NJ, also were here with them. This was Wesson’s first trip to Lopez. He’ll get used to the cold pretty fast if he comes here often.
Ted and Mary Lowden, Maple Terrace, spent a few days in NJ and came back with a new addition to the family. They are now the proud owners of “Willy”, and he’s a cutie.
Mark your calendar. The Che-Hanna Rock and Mineral Club’s 47th annual mineral and gem show will be held on Saturday and Sunday, March 19th and 20th. This is held at the Athens Township Fire Hall in Sayre and has something for everyone. There are educational displays, many different dealers, geode cutting, cabochon making, fluorescent programs by UVBOB, and food. Hope to see you there.
HINT: “When letting your pots and pans soak, throw in one or two Alka Seltzer tablets and the caked on residue from cooking will come off easily when you wash the pot or pan.”
HINT: “Mix two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar into eight ounces of water to soothe your stomach and relieve diarrhea. The taste may not be the greatest, but the antibacterial properties of the vinegar will end the unpleasantness of the bowel problems.” (With flu bugs going around, this might be a good one to try when the “event” occurs.)
Happy Birthday wishes to Khloie Bahr who will be 4 years old on the 19th; Clair Johnson II, 20th; and Armond Spinosa, 22nd. Hope you all have a fine day.
From Mr. Neubauer’s little brown book: February 14, 1979 – windy, cold and MINUS 14 degrees. It’s about the same as ours was; all I know is that is was COLD!!!
