Hope you all had a very Merry Christmas and wish all of you a very Happy, Healthy New Year. Let’s hope it good for everyone. The weather was perfect for travel over the Holidays, so hope you all got to where you wanted to be. I hear the weather for the middle of the week is to get warm again, with temperatures in the 40’s. Sounds good to me.

Joe and Diane Fanning, along with Molly, enjoyed some time over the New Year Holiday at their home on Church Street. Joe saw a bald eagle while he was outside the one day. Tried to get the camera, but not in time to get a picture. We were invited up for dinner on Saturday and had a delicious meal and good time visiting and catching up.
Tony and Patti Sneidar, along with Forest, Philadelphia, spent some time over New Year’s at their home on Church Street and enjoyed visiting friends while they were here. Tony did some hunting, but don’t know if he was successful.
Mrs. Irene Huray spent the Christmas Holiday with her daughter, Irene Pequignot, Linden; Shawn Pequignot family, Jennifer Pequignot family and Kevin Pequignot family.

HINT: “A great use for a length of stocking or a knee-high. Slip one over your pet brush and poke the bristles through. Brush your dog or cat as normal. When you’re done, you can pull the stocking off the brush and the hair will be caught inside.”
From Mr. Neubauer’s little brown book: January 3, 1978 – Fair and cold with zero temperature. Our weather for January 3, 2106 was a little better. We had 24 degrees and a few flurries and was cloudy.
