By Lois Lumbra — 2/26..Brrrr! was just outside for a few minutes saying good-bye to our daughters Veronica and Penny as they headed out. It was a SURPRISE when Veronica came, but a very nice surprise as she has not been over for sometime. Brother, that storm came in with a heavy rain Saturday night, it had warnings of flooding on tv and with that rain coming down that hard it would not have taken long to flood our brooks and rivers. But it did not last long here and slowed right down to a rain shower, and then to snow. But today is a drastic change in temperature, the wind is soooo cold.
2/20..Susie Ewins and Grace Jones got together with their sister Maggie Elkins and treated her to a late birthday luncheon in St.Albans and then they did a little shopping. As usual when they get to-gether they have a wonderful time. It won’t be long and they will be out golfing !!!
2/21..The fire-trucks went through town and headed up Black Falls Road, I later found out that the home of Mike Baillargeon had burned to the ground. This was where Carol Durfee used to live. It was nearly gone when the fire department arrived.
2/23.. Lise Gates from the Dairy Center and her helpers prepared a dinner for the Family and Friends of Gaston Begnoche. Everyone was welcomed to come and have dinner at St.Isidore’s Parish Hall following the funeral service, that was held at St. Isidore’s Catholic Church with Rev. Karl Hahr celebrating the Mass of Christian burial. Ladies of St.Isidore’s were on hand to help out during the dinner fellowship and clean-up. (Thanks to all for your kindness, it has been gratefully appreciated)

An elderly man went out to a bar one evening and a rather hefty lady was dancing on the table. He speaks to her saying “Nice Legs”. She said “ you think so.” He said, “definitely! Most tables would have collapsed by now.”
(I think he is lucky to be alive) This is all for this week folks. L.T.A.
