Liberty - January 5


Hello to all my readers. It is so nice when I hear comments like: “I'm enjoying your column”. One old friend, Marg Gorton from Roscoe, said that recently, and then added, “I'd like a Roscoe column too”. A good suggestion for a Roscoe-ite.

Happy New Year....2021. Our new year's eve was a nice, quiet gathering with Cas and Lori at Casa Di Longobardi in Swan Lake. A great beginning to the new year with a real Italian feast. After Church on Sunday I found a hand-baked delicious cake on my car seat baked by Ivan who brings them to friends. Many thanks, Ivan. I'll not lock my car door when I get out.

So delicious. Other year end thanks also go out to our grandson, Cameron Gieger who came one afternoon to cook dinner for us. He has a natural talent for cooking and serving. One of his Christmas gifts was a cooking wok, so he brought it and made delicious Chinese with clams. He will be a Chef someday, I'm sure.

J&H Express: A great stop heading into Liberty, at the former 52-Pick-Up location. A gas station with a grocery store selling staples plus beer, lottery and a deli. Their hero subs are great. Remembering the great ones at Larry and Carol Steiger's Last Licks...so good. These girls do a nice job and we are happy our girls stop there for pick-up when coming over.

Ice Skating: Our Cindy and family headed out to the new Neversink skating rink earlier. It was a nice afternoon after the early ice-covering melted. They love winter and the outdoor fun. In all my years I have never seen what I saw in my back-yard garden today!! Sprouting bulbs? Don't tell me I'll have iris or tulips? The sprouts are over six inches tall. I know they will freeze and I hope it doesn't kill them off this season. Speaking of plants, Cindy gave us an indoor amarylis which, from a tall stalk, opened to the most spectacular, huge, blooms. They lasted a week and then more blooms and are still gorgeous. She got it in Shoprite. A great buy

A Good Use: My Brokers pin came with a magnetic back. While it laid on my bathroom counter it attracted my bobby pins in a neat little row. Now when I need one, I don't have to go to a rolled up tube of toothpaste. (If you have a neat-nick hubby, you know what I mean).

Ursula Good: I was happy to read Henry Good's yearly Christmas memory of his Mom. She was an unforgettable co-worker in Radiology years ago. She was an expert x-ray tech and family friend. Thank you, Hank.

Road-Side Pick-Up: My daughter Chrissy is complaining about drivers tossing out their garbage on the road in Jeffersonville where she walks her dog every morning. She collects it and then calls Kris Scullion at the Town Office and he sends someone to pick it up. It is sad that such people don't think twice about littering. From what she picks up, soda bottles, fast food remnants, cigarette boxes, coffee cups, it indicates young people driving at night. If parents out by Faubel and Esselman can talk to their kids...and suggest they pop a dollar or two in every bottle, I could then report on a positive note. I know “I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one”.

Special Music: To end my day I like to bring up Owen Mac...on U-Tube singing, If Jesus Comes Tomorrow. It was one of his first hits as a young boy in Ireland.

God Bless Liberty. God Bless the USA.
