Finally, I am reporting on one of the Christian Women of Keeseville's dinners BEFORE it happens. Whoo hoo - what ... it only took me three months? My apologies to all the dedicated souls who so graciously put this together. The next dinner will be Thursday, March 24 from four until 7 p.m. at the Knights of Columbus Hall. The meal will be roast pork, potatoes, salad, rolls and dessert. Again, I wish to acknowledge and thank Henrietta Belair who chairs the monthly community supper and the rest of the volunteers and Christian Women of Keeseville. If you have any spare time, please attend this wonderful event and maybe help out as well for such a worthy cause.
In my commutes to and from work I have recently enjoyed encounters with deer and turkeys on the interstate and ducks, some daredevil chipmunks, and a gorgeous bald eagle on Route 9. Besides these, there are all the amazing and colorful birds in my own backyard as well as the cousin of the death-defying chipmunks and of course the invisible but very odorous skunk or two. All my life I have been an animal lover and always make time to visit zoos in any metropolitan areas that I visit, and while I have seen many exotic and wonderful animals, nothing is more breath taking than suddenly coming across a beautiful animal out in its own environment. If you haven't done it recently I strongly encourage you to wander on foot or car around our region with your eyes open wide.
I don't know about you but I am itching for spring and keep thinking about rushing things by doing some spring cleaning. With the tremendous amount of waste and damage to our environment please look carefully at things no longer used or desired and rather than throwing them out, maybe try donating them to agencies or people that can use them. Just make sure the items really are reusable and you are not just passing the fun job of throwing out the trash to somebody else.
