Hello, hello, hello! Life is good—family are all healthy and doing great. I am planning a trip to Boston to finally meet my great nephew Fintan. I got tickets to the Jim Fallon show. My sister and I are planning a trip to Aruba. Life is getting back to normal.

The other night, I was coming home, and it was really great to see so many cars parked by the ball field and the kids out playing ball. Linda Pomes was out walking her beautiful brown dog, Bo. I stopped to talk to Linda. She gave me the run down on Cochecton Center: “Our neighborhood.” Linda mother’s father was Carroll Heinle, Doug Heinle’s father’s, William, brother (I hope I got that right). We were talking about the house that is for sale across from Heinles General Store by the trailer that Eleanor Heinle used to live in.  Linda thought that Rudolph Heinle originally owned it. When I first moved to Cochecton, it seemed like everyone was related to each other. The Heinles, Grunds, Jays, Mohns, Pomes, Drollingers, Umnik and many others—I do not remember them all. On Linda’s mother’s side of the family, the Meyers (The Judge) is somewhere in there. I can sit and listen for hours to someone talking about the history of Cochecton Center. When I first moved up full time in 1997, they had Founders day; it was very cool. When Linda and I were talking, I was sitting in my car and I got seven bug bites on my scalp, one on my right ankle and one by my left knee. Man do they itch and swell. Not a friend of bugs.

There are only a few more days to get your tickets for the Lake Huntington Lake Association annual raffle. I still have a few left. They cost one for $5 or three for $10. First prize is a kayak and paddle. Second prize is a $150 Dick’s Sporting Goods gift certificate. Third prize is a $10 Cabela’s gift certificate. Fourth prize is a “Basket of Cheer.” If you would like to purchase tickets to help save the lake, just email me and I can get them to you. 

Have a great week! Email me if you have any news that you want to get out there at leeniebeans@citlink.net. You can always find me online in community living.
