Last week I was out and about at the GS Plumbing annual picnic down at Landers Campground hangar and had the pleasure to meet up with Jim Crowley’s mom Helen and his sister Cathy. They are in from Arizona visiting for a few months. Hope you ladies enjoy your stay.  Read more

I drove in that nasty storm, thunder, lighting, flooding on Thursday to go visit Fr. Bill. As soon as I got inside the rain started to stop. Fr. Bill is going to therapy, getting stronger and holding his own. As we are sitting in his room he opened his drawer and showed me all the return addresses from the cards he got from all of you. He sends his love and thanks you for all the prayers and cards. As I left fathers it started raining again, took me two hours to get to Queens to be with my sister for her 62nd birthday.  Read more

What a busy weekend out and about in the community! I do not think you can say there is nothing to do. There are so many street fairs, pancake breakfasts, chicken barbeques and farmers’ markets, not to mention all the family and friends’ parties. If you have the time, you should go out and support your community. You will have a great time, meet people and have fun.  Read more

What a weekend; I was up in Oneonta at my oldest friend's father's wedding. Katie and I have been friends since we were five years old. She moved on to my block and was riding her bicycle in front of my house. I went up to her and asked her to be my friend; 50 years later we are the best of friends, more like sisters. The groom was 75 and the bride 70 and the priest told them you were both lucky enough to have long loving marriages, both widowed and you found love again; you are blessed.  Read more

What a day I had! On July 12, my late husband’s 67th birthday, and I planned a memorial birthday party at Angelina’s on the Hill. More than 80 family, friends and co-workers came out to help me celebrate Tommy’s life. Peter Carmeci Sr. of the Veterans of Foreign War Post 6427 Tusten, Highland, Lumberland was there to honor Tommy. The “Judge,” Bob Meyer, led us off in the Pledge of Allegiance followed by “God Bless America,” sung by my brother-in-law Jon, with everyone joining in. All the little kids stood in the front near Tommy’s flag, which was (in a case) over his casket holding flags.  Read more

I would like to congratulate all the 2015 graduates; it really stinks what crappy weather you had. Best of luck to all of you in your future in going to college and starting a new beginning. Just remember to live, love and laugh. Enjoy life and have fun.

Friday night I went to my 41st reunion from grammar school—yes, I did eight years with the nuns. Yes, they were able to hit you with the wooden ruler, with the metal part; my knuckles were bloody some days. (Had to hide them from my parents.) Being hit with the ruler for talking in class did not shut me up—I had too much to say.  Read more

The Town of Cochecton was well attended Thursday night at the Sullivan County Conservative fundraiser dinner. Supervisor Gary Maas, Highway Superintendent Kevin Esselman, town board members Ed Grund and Anna Story, Sullivan County DA Jim Farrell, Tony Leone and myself Eileen Hennessy Tax Collector. I always donate a crochet blanket to the fundraiser as a door prize. This year Tommy helped me make the blanket that I gave them. In his hospital bed he would pull the yarn and I would crochet it into a blanket.  Read more

On Sunday, May 17 I took Dolores Manaseri and Dotty Schlegel down to Ringwood, NJ to visit Fr. Bill. As I was driving, I was listening to Dotty tell stories about her early life with Woody and all her dogs, and I got very lost. She would ask me, “Does this look familiar?” “Nope.” “Does this?” “Nope.” We both started praying.  Read more

As I am writing this column I am sweating and I have the fan on, but it's not helping one bit. What happened to spring? It feels like summer already. I guess in July we will have the weather in the 50’s. A belated Happy Mothers' Day to all; I spent my day with my sister and one of my brothers and his family. Please keep Elisabeth Bringle in your thoughts and prayers on the passing of her mother Renata Radzikowski. It is so hard to have a nice time on Mothers' Day when your mom is in heaven, keep your mom's memories alive.  Read more

It’s getting to be the busy time of the year, great being out and about seeing people enjoying the sunshine. Ethel Hulse and her daughters Gloria and Nancy took a trip to Cortland, NY for the funeral of her niece, Marion Kennedy Halpin, who back in the day was owner of Kennedy’s Corner. I saw Judy Posniack and her family out in Angelina’s on the Hill. They were up for the weekend getting the house ready for the summer.  Read more
