Gab Over the Fence by Pete G. Ossip

I told you the sun would shine. It finally did on Sunday as Mother’s Day was being celebrated, and again on Monday. There’s predictions of a bit more rain, but not for so long as it was over the past couple of weeks. . . .Anyhow, it was nice on Mother’s Day, and that’s what counted ‘cause our moms do plenty to make our lives amount to so much.  Hats off to all the Moms! . . . .Work is coming along Rt. 512, sometimes at night, sometimes during the day.  Anyhow, it’s a huge improvement for all the years we’ve been hitting the potholes, crevasses and other bumps. Right now, the smooth part is from just below Amore’s to Harold’s RV, then it picks up again from Schall’s Brakes & Repairs all the way through town and up north into Moore Township where it stops at Scotty’s Mobile Homes. I heard it’s gonna go all the way up into Bushkill Township, but I’m not positive about it. We’ll just hafta wait and see as the crews paint the yellow and white markings . . . . I hear the dart baseball season for the churches around here and down Bethlehem way is done and now all the players and their families are looking ahead to the annual banquet later this month at Dryland U.C.C. Church over near Newburg. . . .Little Moore Church is gonna have a roast beef dinner, I hear. Some folks in town are still raving about how good their ham dinner was. . .  .I hear I goofed last week about Joe, who plays hearts with the gang down at the Legion. His last name isn’t Abraham, it’s Ambrose. Just wanta be right when he comes home from his winter sojourn down in the Sunshine State. . . . Firefighters straightened out the farmers market banner on Walnut Street on Monday night after it took a beating from the wind over the weekend. They wanta have it looking good for the opening day next Friday, the 20th.  The market will be open every Friday after that from 3:00 to 7:00 o’clock down at Keystone Park. . . .Former Eleanor Smith and the former Helen Srogi were surprised with a strawberry and whipped cream birthday cake as their classmates from 1948 had breakfast the other day at a Coplay restaurant. . . .Rodger Berg always has a puzzle for his fellow Northampton Exchangites to figure out, and Marty Fella always seems to figure out the right answer. The latest are these numbers from a telephone keypad that spell  a word: 46533474. Give me your guess and I’ll check with Rodger to see if you’re right. . . .Here’s hoping those Phillies can keep up their winning ways down in Georgia as they take on the Braves. Right, Greg? . . . . Local fisherman who caught a big bluefish recently got skunked this time as he tried another spot in the ocean off the Jersey coast. . . .Work to do. Have a nice week  and keep safe.
