Had some nice days and a couple rainy days. Had a couple down pours late Sunday evening and the fog rolled in. All in all, not a bad week. Haven’t heard what’s in store for us. Hopefully nice.
On Friday Debbie Johnson, Charlestown, WV, her sisters, Sue Lawrence, Front Royal, VA, and Carla Chamberlain, Luray, VA, along with their Aunt Jeanne Gosart, West Wyoming, traveled to Lopez to see and reminisce at their great, great grandfather’s home on Dutch Mountain Road. He was Jan Hurrai and his wife, Eva. One of their sons was John Huray who had a shoe repair shop in Lopez. They spent several hours with Bill and Bonnie Killian who now own the Huray homestead. They enjoyed their time there. Jeanne sat on the stone wall she played on as a child and also drank from the spring house. They shared so many memories and so many family pictures. The Killian’s are now in touch with them, sharing more pictures and memories of growing up in that house. It was also Jeanne’s birthday on Friday. The Killian’s told Jeanne she can come back any time and stay with them as long as she wants. She said they were so blessed they were home and visit and share stories while they were here. Jeanne said she saw her first movie in Dushore, Annie Get Your Gun, with Howard Keel. She said such good times living in Lopez. She, along with the girls, were a wealth of information telling how it was here in the “good ol’ days”. They also made a side trip to visit Bob and JoAnn McGuire. Bob’s grandfather, Peter Huray, was a brother to their great, great, grandfather, Jan. We had such a nice visit with them also.

Sprinkle corn meal on your garden to keep weeds from germinating and growing in your plants. Good idea as weeds grown pretty fast.
Alison and Jase Lowden, Marlton, NJ, and her girl friend, spent a few days at her home here. Visited with Ted and Mary Lowden while they were here.
Happy Father’s Day to all on Sunday, the 19th. Hope you all have a great day.

Happy Anniversary to Bob and Lisa Burke on the 19th, celebrating 45 years of marriage.
On Friday Mama bear and three cubs were seen around the area. They were in the field below Mike and Heather McDonald’s. Then they moved to Adel’s place and were on her deck. Don’t know where the cubs went, but Mama bear was their not once, but three times before being chased away. One bear was at Lowden’s and Mary got a picture of him/her taking down the bird feeder. Mike and Heather were coming home later in the afternoon and a bear was just ready to get the humming bird feeder from the porch when they chased it away. All this was early in the day, so they come any time now. The cubs are cute, but we really don’t need them around like this. Nor, do we need the parents.
The hanging flower baskets that I see around town are looking so good. The gardens are planted and hopefully will have good produce for the summer and lots of canning and freezing will be done for the winter months.
Adel Bradshaw came in from West Chester to enjoy a few days at her home here. Got her flowers planted and they look so nice against the house.
