Tax Season is coming to an end! March 31 is the last day to pay taxes before they are turned over to the Sullivan County Treasurer’s Office: 845/807-0200. During the month of March, I will be in the office on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 4 to 7 p.m.

They say it’s not long till daylight saving time and spring, but who are "they"? It is nice to get out of work and it’s not pitch dark. Everyone knows March 17 is St. Patrick’s Day; in my youth, it was a wild and crazy day. Right down the block from where I lived, there was a bar called Kerrigan’s—my home away from home.
I had the pleasure of working at the WSUL “Heart a Thon” for the Catskill Regional Medical Center last Friday. I was there to answer the phones, but I did much better on my cell phone and on Facebook. I got over $2,000 in donations. I would not have been able to do it without all my friends and family submitting their donations.
I would like to thank Tom and Cecilia Coacci for putting together a wonderful ‘50s-themed dance in the Narrowsburg Union on Saturday night. Everyone in the town chipped in to make it a great success. The food, donated by the Heron, the Launderette and the Tusten Cup, was so good.
Hello, hope you are all surviving this crazy weather. Minus 13, then next day 46. I pray that Groundhog Phil knows what he is talking about and we have an early spring.
I stopped by Dog Mountain Lodge boarding kennel last week, and as I was there, one of the owners, Dean, asked me if I wanted a tour. I said yes, along with a quick prayer that all the animals were in locked cages. I am really not a pet person. When I go to my sister’s, my nephew-dog Henry always sleeps with me.
I fell asleep in my chair this weekend and woke up at 11:15 p.m., heading to bed, with not such a nice word—I forgot to write my column.
I hope everyone is doing great. I had the best time with my sister Maryanne and my brother-in-law Jon, spending three days in New York City for the holidays. Friday we went to see the show “Beautiful, the Carol King Story,” and it was amazing. During intermission Jon asked what we were doing on Saturday, and we said we did not have any plans.
Merry Christmas and a very happy, healthy new year to all—the healthy part is what I am going for in 2019. I have to go get another MRI on my ear. The doctors think I still have a mastoiditis infection of the skull bone behind the ear. This coming year will be better, and it’s up to me to make it that way. December 30 I turn 59.
Last Friday night Pastor Phyllis and I went out for a Christmas dinner at Three Wishes, the food was so good and so was the dessert. On our way there the weather started to get a bit nasty with light snow. When we left, the snow was a little harder just sticking to the road. FYI the roads in PA stink, they were so bad.
