gab over the fence

It’s been nice weather most of this week. Let’s hope it stays that way over the coming weekend when Bath has its annual Christmas tree lighting ceremony down at Monocacy Creek Park on Sunday night. It’s always a great time for adults and their kids, so we’re looking forward to another one.  The local Lions have been decorating the Christmas tree for plenty of years and will be down there again on either Friday or Saturday morning depending upon the weather, I hear.  Marvin Werkheiser and his cohorts usually do a good job, and they have a nice tree to work with now. . . . The street decorations of lighted angels and stars will be going up, too, before the weekend. . . . I said last week that the Eagles played their worse game. Well, this past Sunday’s was even worse. Talk about going from bad to worse. That was it! Look for no more wins this season. Penn State fans were disappointed, too, on Saturday, playing Michigan. . . .On the local scene, we’ll see if the Northampton Konkrete Kids can win against those Catasauqua Brown Bombers on Thanksgiving morning.  Another bad year so far. Nazareth’s Blue Eagles have been winning and losing, so their fans hope for a win against their opponent. . . .I hear Marty Beal is having problems with his e-mail, so some bowling results might not get in the paper, or will be delayed, he tells Ye Ed. Oh well, that’s the story sometimes when businesses say the computers are down. Then again, I’m told that another Thursday holiday, Thanksgiving, is calling for an early deadline, so not enough time to get’ em in. . . .Lutheran church in town is looking for a big crowd to attend their Thanksgiving dinner at noon. Donations are welcome, and maybe even some tips. . . .Clark S. is looking for some good Ahart donuts when the Legion hearts crew plays this week’s games. . . .The moon will be full on Thanksgiving Eve, so it should be light at night while traveling over to Emanuelsville for the church service. Pastors Barry and Elizabeth Mitchell will be looking for a nice big congregation of folks from around this area. . . . Graf trial is over and the accused will be spending the rest of his life behind bars. It was gruesome. . . . Snow birds will be heading south for the next few months. . . .As you sit down at the dinner table this Thanksgiving, thank God for all we have, and add some words of prayer for all the victims of terrorism in the world. Happy Thanksgiving!
