You learn something everyday, or in my case the same thing many times. I was a victim of a prank when I was told that Norma Thomas had passed away. Well, guess who appeared at the Methodist Church Sunday looking pert and much alive. Norma said, Jim, as Mark Twain once said, The accounts of my demise are greatly exaggerated. After standing in front of the congregation and effusively apologizing for reporting her demise last week, Norma did ask me to stop whimpering but would I correct the erroneous report in this weeks column? Im so sorry because I cant afford to offend any of my six readers. So Im chagrined Norma, but look at it this way. At least you now know what people think of you while youre still alive. DVDs of last years production of the Mikado are now available for only $5. Special, special thanks to Laura Smith for the initial recording. She continues to do many good deeds for our communities. Will someone tell me why everyone gets special messages from Charley except me? I always thought he worshiped the ground I perused. Also at last weeks church service someone remarked about getting old and forgetful. I dont know why being 64 caused consternation. The person was the youngest one on our side of the church. Flash--Medical report of the week. Cory Gillilland and Don Hollingsworth, two people with the longest names in our town, are both recovering from rotator cuff surgeries. and expect to recover soon enough to trash me for misspelling their names and tell me to stop buying get well cards at railroad salvage stores. Next Saturday (Feb. 23) will be the second monthly Square Dance at the Grange, which is funded in part by a grant from the Arts Council of the Northern Adirondacks. We expect another great group of dancers responding to caller extraordinaire, Gary Finney. Dance begins at 7:30 p.m.
