Hello, hello, hello life is good, family are all healthy, and doing great. I am looking forward to my niece Margaret and her fiancé Matt’s wedding in a few weeks. I am planning a trip to Boston to finally meet my great-nephew Fintan. I got tickets to the Jimmy Fallon show. My sister and I are planning a trip to Aruba, life is getting back to normal.

The other night I was coming home and it was really great to see so many cars parked by the ballfield and the kids out playing ball. Linda Pomes was out walking her beautiful brown dog Bo. I stopped to talk to Linda. She was giving me the run down on Cochecton Center “Our neighborhood”.

Linda’s mother’s father was Carroll Heinle, Doug Heinle’s fathers William’s brother (I hope I got that right). We were talking about the house that is for sale across from Heinles General Store by the trailer that Eleanor Heinle used to live in. Linda thought that Rudolph Heinle originally owned it.

When I first moved to Cochecton, it seemed like everyone was related to each other. The Heinles, Grunds, Jays, Mohns, Pomes, Drollingers, Umnik and many others. I do not remember them all.

On Linda’s mother’s side of the family The Meyers (The Judge) is somewhere in there. I can sit and listen for hours to someone talking about the history of Cochecton Center. When I first moved up full time in 1997 they had Founders Day. It was very cool.

When Linda and I were talking I was sitting in my car and I got 7 bug bites on my scalp, one on my right ankle and one by my left knee, man do they itch and swell. Not a friend of bugs.
