I hope and pray that everyone had a very Merry Christmas. On Thursday, December 14 I went to visit Fr. Bill; he is doing well and loves all his Christmas cards. Then I went to Queens to meet up with my sister, and we went to Manhattan to meet my brother in law.
Lake Huntington News
Another fun-filled holiday weekend with family and friends. On Saturday, the Cochecton Youth Commission (CYC) had their Christmas Party at the Lake Huntington Fire Hall. The kids did crafts, coloring and sang along with Brad Rutledge and his kids, Matthew and Annabelle.
What an amazing night! I just came back from Narrowsburg, where the Santa Express arrived. Mr. and Mrs. Claus were there with Frosty, Rudolph, gingerbread people, Jingle Bear, Buddy the Elf, three female elves, the Snow Queen and Olaf from “Frozen.” When the Snow Queen sang “Let It Go,” everyone was belting it out with her.
What a weekend I had! I went down to Queens for Tommy’s sisters daughters 30th Birthday. On my way down I stopped to visit Fr. Bill. He is doing pretty good. He sends his love to all; if you would like to send him a Christmas card his address is 2 Morris Rd, Ringwood, NJ 07456.
I hope everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving and all the leftovers. I had a great time at my brother Teddy’s, and after dessert we played charades. I can still crack up thinking of some of the stunts. Nothing like spending time with family. Having four days off from work was great, but I just got back from six days off on a trip to Vegas.
You will all be happy to know after my second post op doctor’s visit, I feel so much better. I had to go back a second time because I could not breathe. I had a blockage in my nasal cavity, a big dried up blood clot. Once the ENT removed that and cleaned out my sinuses again, all was good.
I hope you are all staying nice and warm in this chilly winter weather. Neither rain, nor sleet, nor hail, nor snow stopped The Cochcton Republican Club from serving up their annual chicken barbeque dinner on Election Day. I have to say it is the best chicken barbeque around.
I am so sorry there was not a column last week, but I was in Wayne Memorial Hospital ER once again. This time, it was my infected sinuses pressing against my optical nerve. It felt like my eye was going to pop out of my head. Another CATscan and more antibiotics, and I am very glad to tell you that on November 2, I had the sinus surgery.
We are truly blessed with gorgeous weather. This October, I had a busy weekend with friends up from Queens. When I was out and about on Friday, I ran into Pam and Bob DeMan at the bank. I enjoy talking to Bob, he is one heck of a character.
