On Friday night May 30, there was a potluck at our beautiful Cochecton Center Community Center “church” building. It was nice to see the neighbors out; even Danny Yewchuck was out and about. The community church is in need of a new roof, and a few fund-raising events have begun. One way the community could help is to purchase a “square of shingles” for $100 in memory of loved one(s) and a memorial plaque will be hung in the building. However, any donation is greatly appreciated. When I was at the meeting, all I could think about was Doug Heinle, so I got a square in his memory.  Read more

It was a busy, busy, busy weekend that started Friday night at the Callicoon Brewery with a surprise birthday party for my co-worker Jonathan Fox. My mother’s mother’s maiden name was Fox (wonder if we’re related). Yes, my husband and I drove from Cochecton Center to Callicoon in a monsoon; at one point we went through a puddle, and it was like driving through a wave. Thank God the rain stopped for the car ride home.  Read more

Did you ever have a day that is so busy, crazy and just so overwhelming but still good? Well, I’ve been having those kinds of days, and you just need to take a deep breath and enjoy life, or run into Bob “The Judge” Meyer, and your day will be complete. I could sit all day with Bob and listen to him tell a story or a joke. That’s right Bob, I am talking about you. You said you love reading my column.  Read more

It is Easter Sunday and I am in London, England, and I just came back from a great wedding in Cheltenham. My cousin Martin was the groom; his great-grandmother and my great-grandfather were brother and sister. Thomas and his sister Anne left Ireland as teenagers in the late 1800s and went to England. Anne stayed in England and Thomas came to America and married my great-grandmother Bridget, who had my grandmother Maryanne, who had my mother Anne, who had me. If you think about it, everyone is probably related—Anne and Thomas had other brothers and sisters, and they had kids who had kids.  Read more

Well, according to the calendar it is springtime. The snow needs to go away, however, and the sun needs to shine. With the arrival of nicer weather, many local meetings will be starting up again. On the third Monday of the month, April 21, the Cochecton Democratic Club will have its monthly meeting, and here’s another reminder—dues will be collected, $5 per member. The Republican Club meets the first Monday of the month at 7:30 p.m. The Women’s Community Club of Cochecton will hold its first meeting of 2014 on Tuesday, April 8 as long as the weather is good.  Read more

March 10, 2013: one year ago my mother went to heaven to be with my dad. I was truly blessed with great parents. They taught me how to enjoy life, help others and work for what you want, and to love unconditionally. Last Saturday my family was together for my brother’s 50th birthday, and we had a dedication to my mom. There was not a dry eye in the house, with everyone singing Danny Boy. Every Sunday my mother would cook dinner and sing her Irish songs; “Danny Boy” was her favorite. My little cousin Nicholas took the microphone and wanted all of us to listen to him speak with her.  Read more

What a week! I need to thank the two guys in a blue pickup who stopped to help my husband, Tommy. Last Wednesday during the freaky snow storm, he slid off the road and into a snow bank by the playground near Heinle’s General Store. He said the car was covered in snow and he could not see out the window. The two guys (I wish I knew who they were) could not get him out. Thank God, Lurch Campfield pulled up and pulled him right out.  Read more

I’m sitting at home watching the 50th anniversary celebration of the Beatles on TV. My older sister is a Beatles freak; she will chase Paul all over the world. You could see her interview about being a life-long Beatles fan running for the entire weekend on Channel 2 TV in New York City.  Read more

Baby it’s cold outside—so much snow and it’s freezing. I do not know how the homeless people do it. If you have an elderly neighbor please check in on them.  Read more
