I've bragged up the police,
ambulance and fire department personnel up in the column on more
than one occasion. My admiration and appreciation for them hit
close to home last week. Thank you to everyone who responded and
helped my father!
Thanks, too, to the person who called to let me
know about Dad...the people at the scene that helped my mother and
I, to Pastor Randy and to everyone who called, stopped by, and
checked up on us. My dad is very lucky. His family is very
Also last week, right before it started to storm,
my husband, granddaughter and I went to Rock Run to meet a very nice
man who took it upon himself to beautify the road by planting
daffodils. I learned about this nice man, from Anne Tanner. When
we arrived, we found Sy Tanner right away...with no problem...but he
didn't want his picture taken with the daffodils...neither did my
husband or my granddaughter. Makayla, however, didn't really get a
vote and we put the "pretty little girl" in the photo. It turned
out nice...and the daffodils were beautiful. It was a wonderful
thing for Mr. Tanner to do. Thanks to Anne (I'm not sure I'm
spelling her name correctly) for giving me the heads up.
Lillianne Elizabeth, our number
our 8th grandchild and 6th grand-daughter, celebrated birthday
number 2 Friday...and again with a family party on Monday. I was
thinking of her party and all of a sudden realized that my husband
and our number 4 grandchild and number 2 granddaughter, will
celebrate this week...not next week as I originally thought! I went
to hurry mode and hope to get back on schedule before their birthday
on Thursday! Happy Birthday to Lilly, Mike and Sasha!
I heard the first ever Sportsman Raffle sponsored
by the local fire department went well. My husband enjoyed himself,
even though he didn't win a thing!
Lexi, Christian and I went to a
baby shower for Sarah Barnard Smith. It was a great shower and
we had a nice time.
Sunday evening, we went back to church to
celebrate with Barb Headley who graduated from Pitt-Bradford earlier
in the day. We, her church family and friends, are very proud of
her. She earned many honors throughout her college career while
taking care of her family, providing music for two churches each and
every Sunday morning and holding down a job. She's an amazing
person. Whoever hires her and gets her on their team will be very
lucky! Congrats Barb!
It will be a busy weed in Port
Allegany with the fun(d) run Saturday morning, a t-ball game, a
chicken barbecue, a leek supper and a couple of invite-only events.
I'm not breathing a word about hoping that things soon calm down
I learned my lesson!
