It’s that time of year when penny socials and fundraisers are being held. Saturday night, I helped put on a dance for the Narrowsburg Ecumenical Food Pantry with Joann Latrende. The best part of the dance was seeing Ken Baim line dancing just one week after he had four stents put in.

I hope everyone had a nice weekend. I was down in Queens; on Saturday, we took my sister-in-law to Lips in NYC for her birthday. Lips is a dinner and drag queen show destination, and Ariel Sinclair, the MC, is my brother. We had a great time with lots of laughs.
I had such a busy weekend! My brother Teddy and I went to Queens Thursday night—yes, in that rain, fog and wind. Teddy was driving, and, at one point, I looked up and realized we were in the Bronx! We somehow got off the wrong exit, so we had to go all the way up to Newburgh to turn around.
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.
