We’re almost at closing out the month of February. And that much closer to the end of winter. Not bad, eh? Actually, except for that monster snowstorm and some close-to-zero weather at times, it hasn’t been too bad a winter. Even so, I’m ready for spring! . . . . Congrats to Jim and Louise Stout on their 50th wedding anniversary. They used to live in Moore Township, but are now up in Dallas, Pa. I hear they’d like to move back here again if they can find a house that’s suitable. . . . Best of luck to the Konkrete Kids girls’ basketball team, who will be facing Nazareth this Tuesday night in the semi-finals. They edged out a tough Parkland team last week, 44-42, in the District 11 Class AAAA quarter-finals. Aja Blount, Lauren Sterner, Jenna Rogers and Devon Saul were four of the heroes for Northampton, but it was a total team effort. . . .I have a tough time remembering names, but I hear one fella’s solution is that he calls one person “The Chicken Man” and another “The Pie Man.” It seems to work. . . .Best of luck to Herb Silfies who’s getting a valve to his heart this week. The nurses will keep his blood flowing all right. . . .Klecknersville Rangers are gonna have a flea market on Sunday, March 6. It’s always wondered me, where, when or how did the term “flea market” originate? Anybody know the answer? . . . .My sympathies to Rev. Jerry Mraz of Northampton on the passing of his wife. . . .I see that the borough is looking for cost estimates from engineers or architects on doing a “re-purposing” of the municipal building (the former Bath Public School that a lot of us as kids attended) or constructing a new building to suit all their needs. Either way I reckon it’s expensive. . . .Those of you who were born on February 29 will have another four-year birthday come Tuesday. At least it keeps you young. Happy birthday! . . . Another terrific crowd came out on Saturday for the Whitetail Deer Classic in Northampton. They probably had the best weather ever. . . . Road crews should be happier this year, with less than usual potholes to fix. . . . Something smells good in the kitchen. Maybe Elmira’s fixing to make a pig stomach dinner. Doesn’t sound good, but you don’t know vat gute is, maybe. See ya!
