Gab Over the Fence by Pete G. Ossip

Sure had been dreary weather this month of May, but Monday turned out beautiful with blue skies and the sun warming everything.   Great spring day!  Maybe things will stay that way and spring will be warm and sunny all the way into summer. . . . Ye Ed keeps promising Jen down at the Town & Country that he’ll wear his South Carolina T-shirt when it gets warmer. C’mon, Jen, smile.  You know he’ll come through sooner or later . . . .Moore Township and Allen Township took down their signs about banning outdoor fires, since it has been off and on rain for so many days, but that doesn’t mean you can get careless by burning leaves or garbage outside. It’s always good to take care. . . . Herb Silfies, who has been in a long convalescence, came out for a visit with his buddies at the hearts game down at the Legion last Wednesday. I hear he didn’t waste any time in contributing his quarters to the cuss jar. Great to see you out and around, Herbie!  He was accompanied by his nephew Lee, who has been taking good care of him up at Hickory Hills . . . .I hear there was a winner from town at the dart baseball banquet the other night.  Bath Lutheran won a trophy, but didn’t hear if it was Don Miller or Doug Moser who collected it. Garry Hunsicker and his Christ Church players said, “Wait till next year.” Garry and his son Steve will be busy down at the Bath farmers market on Friday afternoons now that it has opened for the season. . . . I see S. Seem Antiques from town is gonna have a benefit for the Bath Food Bank with specials, live music, snacks and wine this Thursday. That oughta make Jeannie and Marge happy . . . .Northampton Borough had a country western band playing on Wednesday for their first free concert of the season. At the same time, all the students who are involved in sports at the high school were at their banquet in the cafeteria. It’s too bad when there are conflicting events you wanta go to at the same time, but that’s the way it goes sometimes. . . . It’s good that the Memorial Day weekend ceremonies are at different times. The Bath Legionnaires from Post 470 will be meeting at 8 a.m. and then have a public program at 11:00 or 11:30 a.m. Sunday, May 29. Bushkill Township is gonna have their veterans remembrance and flag retirement ceremony up at the ball field on Sunday afternoon at 1:30 p.m., and Northampton is having their Memorial Day program on Monday morning at 11:00 a.m.   That way we can go to all of them.  Great!  So let us all remember how our men and women in the armed forces have served our country in so many wars and thousands have given their lives.  Let’s pray for peace always.
