gab over the fence

I don’t know of any folks living around here whose birthday falls on February 29. The only person I remember from the past is the late Minnie Clarke. I reckon it can be a problem in paper work with a birthday that only falls every four years, but that’s life . . . .We’re into the month of March already. The months really roll around fast. Maybe it’s like that when you get older. Time goes faster and faster.  Only four more weeks and Easter will be here! Maybe that’s it. We’re always looking ahead and wham! Before you know it the event happens! . . . . Congrats to Lee Marsh from up in Lehigh Township for receiving a Game Commission plaque from wildlife conservation officer Brad Kreider thanking him for all the years they’ve been able to hash out problems with deer and other wild animals. He can show it to the gang that usually has breakfast together down at the T&C most mornings. . . .I hear the surgeon wasn’t available last week, so Herb Silfies didn’t have his heart valve procedure. So it’s gonna be next week . . . . Ye Ed’s son Dave had his operation and is recuperating at home from his mail carrying duties. Get well wishes to both lads! . . . .The Oscars on Sunday night went pretty much as expected, and with lots of good looking gals in their high fashion gowns.  Monday morning on the Kelly Ripa and Michael  Strahan show, a big audience was on hand live at 6 a.m. as more scenes from the Oscars were shown in the same Hollywood theater with singing and dancing. Most everybody there hadn’t even gone to bed, celebrating all night. . . . Lots of events going on at the Reformed church in town these days. There was a variety bingo last Friday, a Pennsylvania Dutch dinner-music night is coming up, another Soup Sunday with about eight or nine home-made soups was held after church this week, and this Saturday from 10:00 in the morning till 5:00 in the evening the Governor Wolf Historical Society is gonna have an antique show in the fellowship hall. . . Pack 33 Cub Scouts had their pinewood derby there, too. . . .Northampton girls basketball team lost to Nazareth 51-41 last Tuesday, and then Nazareth went on to beat Pottsville for the championship in a low-scoring game. . . . Moore Elementary School is gonna have a Mini-Thon this Friday night to raise money for FourDiamonds and the Kidz Cancer Club will be selling their bracelets to give money toward local pediatric cancer organizations. The main thing is childhood cancer awareness, patterned after the Thon that Penn State University had a week or so ago. . . .Only 17 days till spring, time for a sip of Elmira’s tonic.
