Youngsters (of all ages) who have ice skates may even find some of the local farm ponds awfully inviting!

Here's another activity you might consider. Cindy Gallagher has written with this request:

"I am looking for 2 or 3 retired people who might be interested in being on a phone list that my mother-in-law, Roseann Gallagher, could call for transportation. She has been such a busy lady all her life that she is having trouble being happy without driving. She could pay the person's per hour and mileage to take her places like the stores here in town, shopping and appointments in Utica. (She is not too thrilled with this idea yet, so please contact Paul or me if you're willing to help. Our phone number is 841-3370 or my cell is 415-2295.) This would help us immensely.


I clipped this from the Library website.

I was chatting with Ron and Val Schenk in the Post Office Parking lot, the other morning, and Val bemoaned the fact thaat she must not have won the Morgan's 12-Days of Christmas Raffle because no one had called. Well: she went home and guess what happened! Tom DID call; she DID win! Congratulations!!!


Sandy Harding wrote that she and Bob spent the week before Christmas celebrating with his sister Elaine Ralls in Prescott, Arizona The reason for the celebration was Catherine Ralls' graduation from Prescott College where she majored in photography. "We attended all the functions associated with the great day and really enjoyed the art show presented by our niece. There was plenty of time to spend with our son James, his wife Lisa and our 4 "out west" grandchildren. It was the closest we have come to spending Christmas with him in the 18 years he has been in Arizona. A great time was had by all."


I'm going to be away for a couple of days and may or may not be able to post anything on the blog. However - I'll make up for it when I come home and will be checking my mailbox for some of YOUR Christmas pictures (72 dpi JPEGS, please!) and stories to share!

Enjoy your vacation!
