Well, here it is the month of May. Lets hope for some really nice weather on the way. I heard we are to get a lot of rain for the week. Sure could change and be nice as far as I’m concerned. The warmth of the sun would really be nice for the month. Would help the flowers and gardens a lot too. We’ll see what Mother Nature has in store for us. We did have some cold, frosty days and it seems the wind is always a factor. I never saw as much wind as we had on Thursday. Was a good day for laundry outside on the line. But……the wind was up to no good and took my clothes line down and everything was on the ground. Luckily, everything was dry so no problem. Let’s see what the next week brings. It just has to get better.
Since I couldn’t be there, due to a horrible cold, I would personally like to thank those that met at the Pavilion on Sunday, May 1st, for park/pavilion clean-up for the up-coming mowing season. This fantastic crew consisted of Maggie and Jason Brumwell, with his little BobCat; Janet Sell; Bob McGuire, Sr.; Les Isett; Clair Johnson II; J J Gato, Jr.; Chase, Jodi, Everlyn and Emerson Brumwell; Bryson Charles; Heather, Kaeleigh and Kyleigh McDonald and Kaeleigh’s boyfriend, CJ Molyneux; and Barb Bell. Thank you for a job well done. Took care of a lot of storm damage and got it all done before the rain came late afternoon.
TJ, Allison and Jase Lowden, along with Wesson, Marlton, NJ, spent a few days at their home on Church Street. They also spent time with his parents, Ted and Mary.
Next Civic meeting will be on Wednesday, the 18th, 6 p.m. at the Pavilion. Should, hopefully, be warm enough at that time.
I hear turkey season is in. Hope you hunters bagged your bird. Haven’t seen any here in the yards at all. Guess they must be hiding in the woods away from the hunters.
Mother’s Day is right around the corner. Are you planning something special for her? Also, think of those who cannot be with us on that day. Mothers come in all forms. She can be someone who is like a Mom to you; someone who treats you like a special person to her. She is just an all round great person. If you have your Mom, be glad you do. If you don’t have your Mom, think of all the good times you had with her while growing up. Happy Mother’s Day to all.
Happy Birthday wishes to Ken Pochatko, 6th; Ted Lowden, 7th; Diane Fanning, 9th; Elizabeth Spinosa, 10th. Hope you all have a grand day.
Did you know peppermint oil is great for allergy symptoms, such as drainage and coughing. Diffuse the oil in a diffuser along with eucalyptus in your home to reduce allergy symptoms through out the day and night. Something for me to try since I’ve been coughing. Sure hope it helps.
Keep an eye on the Sully for events going on around the County. There just might be something you’re interested in. With the warmer weather, things and activities should start popping up. You can also check Face Book.
Hopefully, the gardens and flower beds can be thought of soon. Many I talked to said they don’t plant until after Memorial Day, due to all the frost we have. And, we sure had frost the last week of April. Some flowers I saw coming up out of the ground did not look so good. The birds don’t know what to do. The humming birds should arrive soon. We usually see them around Mother’s Day. Hopefully, that will be a sign of good things to come.
That’s the news for now. Enjoy your week; you may need an umbrella but no snow boots. If you have news you’d like in the paper, please call me by 6 p.m. on Sunday evening at 570-928-9238; USPS mail; see me; or e-mail me at email@example.com. I will get in in for you. Thanks for reading and I’ll be here next time.
