The weather sure is changing. Temperatures have gone down. We had some rain showers on Saturday and a few sprinkles on Sunday, but it was downright cool. The leaves are changing color more every day. We’ve had frost a couple of times and there will be more coming soon, I’m sure. Where’s that Indian summer we usually get? Guess that was a couple weeks ago. Haven’t seen the humming birds recently and there have been a couple of reports of hearing geese fly over. We’ve seen a lot of turkey in the yard across the street and a couple deer. Speaking of deer, it’s archery season now, so stay away from the woods. Some of these hunters can get kinda reckless at times and wouldn’t want anyone to get shot, thinking you are a deer.
Got the following to share: “Don and Irene (Kravitz) Risser, Millersville, had their card group spend the weekend at their home on Route 487. Kitty Glass, Millersville, and Bob Coley, Lancaster, enjoyed the stellar weather on Saturday and Sunday. They played a lot of pinochle and did several other activities as well. They had brunch at the Jolly Trolley, Dushore, on Saturday and enjoyed the painted toilet seat display. On their drive home, they were lucky enough to see a large bear and her three cubs run across the road near Murraytown. In the afternoon, they enjoyed a walk and found wild cranberries and a few beechnuts left on the beech trees. Saturday evening, the group had dinner at The Fireplace Restaurant, near Tunkhannock. A good time was had by all.
Irene Risser visited Mary Kravetz on Sunday afternoon. That evening, she spent a couple of hours visiting with her school friend, Irene Kachmarsky. They had fun going down memory lane. They were members of the Sullivan County High School, class of 1966. This year is the 50th anniversary of their high school graduation.
Jeffrey, Kristin (McDonald) and Hailey Mensch, Forksville, visited on Sunday with Mike, Heather, Kaeleigh and Kyleigh McDonald. They helped Kyleigh celebrate her 7th birthday.

HINT: “Salt placed inside a cloth that has been moistened keeps snow and ice from sticking to your windshield.” (With the frosty weather about here, have to try that.)
Happy Birthday wishes to Gwen Hontz and Dylon Pequignot, 7th; Irene Huray and Ryan Weisbrod, 8th; Sally Housekneckt, 12th. Hope you all have a nice day.
From Mr. Neubauer’s little brown book: October 2, 1980 – light rain and 56 degrees. Our weather was sprinkles, breezy and cool. And, I don’t like what’s coming either. I did hear there is a warm up for the end of the week. That will be nice.
That’s the news for this time. Enjoy your week; might have to put some warmer clothes on, but that’s ok too. Have news, call me at 570-928-9238; mail me; see me; or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’ll get it in for you. If you know of an event that will be taking place, and you’d like it in the paper, please let me know. I’ll be here next time and thanks for reading.
