Was a great weekend. Could do all kinds of outside things. The gardens are growing, the flower beds look nice, so it’s good all the way around. We did have a brief shower on Sunday afternoon, but it was still hot and humid for both Saturday and Sunday. Oh-Oh, as I sit here typing my news at 9:30 on Sunday evening, we’re just getting a down pour and had some thunder and lightning. Maybe it will cool off some for good sleeping. At least it’s not that “s” word. Do you realize that Wednesday is the first day of summer? Sure hope it lasts. Friday, early evening, we saw a flock of geese going North. They sure are pretty late.
Thanks to the Mike McDonald family for letting Tyler swim in the pool with the girls while he was here. Had a good time.
Cory McDonald came in from Rhode Island to spend some time with family and friends over Father’s Day weekend.
Marty and Dee Whatley, Philadelphia, spent the weekend at their home on Route 487. They enjoyed the Pow Wow held at the Forksville Fairgrounds over the weekend. They had a visitor while they were here. Put some corn out for the deer and the “big” guy got it, so they said, “no more corn for the deer”.
Hope all you Dad’s had a great Father’s Day and got to spend it with loved ones.
Nina Weslowski spent the weekend with her family in Allentown to help her Dad celebrate Father’s Day. She also celebrated her birthday while she was there.

I know with the summer weather upon us there will be many things going on around the County, so keep an eye on the Sully to see what may take place and what you may be interested in.
HINT: “How to get rid of ants: Mix one cup of borax, two-thirds cup of sugar and one cup water. Dip cotton balls in the solution and place in areas near your anthill. Ants will leave the plants along and ingest the sweet mixture. The borax will kill the ants.” (I know of a couple places; we’ll have to try that.)
From Mr. Neubauer’s little brown book: June 18, 1974 it was cool and clear with a morning temperature of 38 degrees. Today, same day, it was hot, muggy and a morning temperature in the 50’s and got hotter as the day went on.
Well it’s time to “hit the hay” so that’s the news for this time. Enjoy your week; even with the rain it will be warm and I heard that Wednesday and Thursday are to be grand. Have news call me at 570-928-9238; mail me; see me; or e-mail me at email@example.com. I’ll get it in for you. Thanks for reading and sending hints. I’ll be here next time.
