Athol-Thurman 2-13-10

Over the backyard fence

A local lady called and wishes to thank six Thurmanites for their thoughtfulness and generosity. She had a very nice surprise when she found her fuel tank had been filled, in this last week of January just when our temperatures dropped way below zero. Thank you to the secret angels!

Now that our ground hog has nestled back in his warm den after looking out last week on Feb. 2, we have another holiday, and this one is for love-birds - Happy Valentine's Day everyone!

But are those other birds - snow birds - keeping warm in the south?

A call came in this week from a gentleman who was excited to have seen a bald eagle in late January sitting in a tree near the river when he was taking a trip via state Rte. 418 to Warrensburg.

Congratulations to Cheryl Kenyon for being elected as president of the Warrensburg chamber of Commerce.

I have only three Persis Granger books left - two of the original Adirondack Gold volumes, and one of the sequel, "A Summer of Strangers." If you wish to get one, give me a call at 623-2580. The books are $11.95 and $9.95.
