Inell Harvey: April showers bring … mud

Spring is God’s way of saying “One more time.”

They say, “April showers bring May flowers.”

We’ll see. Don’t know what they say this mud brings.

Did you know that the best thing about ” APRIL FOOL! (Gotcha, didn’t I?)

March came in like a lion—perhaps it will go out like a lamb.

The moon will be in its last quarter on Saturday, March 29.

Sympathies and prayers are with Mick and Norma Andress and their family. Their eldest daughter in Boulder passed away last week. This has been especially difficult for the Andress family as neither one of them have been in good health, and have been in the care of doctors. Norma has recently recuperated from a surgery. The Andresses have a summer home on Rainbow Avenue in Heeney, but are in their Denver home this winter.

Correction on an error in last week’s Heeney Hearsay column: It was Ilene Heeney who reported seeing the first Robin this spring, not Ileene Harvey. (Sorry Ilene)

Happy wedding anniversaries to Larry and Millie Jones and to Mike and Shawn Wheatley, both on March 30.

Michael Rister, who resides and is employed in Longmont, spent Easter weekend with his parents, Gordon and Nicki Rister, in Kremmling.

Eric Scott, Don and Keats Scott of Heeney, and Diane Philips and daughter, Katir, of Boulder, spent Easter Sunday in the Mike and Susie Middagh home in Lakewood.

They enjoyed grilled chicken for a change, instead of the traditional ham dinner.

The annual Heeney potluck in the Heeney Community Center was a gala fun affair. The drawing for the Heeney quilt was won by Renita Lucas. Renita then presented the quilt to Cara York, because Cara is a huge Dale Rogers fan. This was the first time in history that a recipient of the annual quilt drawing has given the quilt away. The quilt was locally handmade by the Sew and Sew Club in Heeney. Many tickets were sold and proceeds went to benefit the Lower Blue Fire Protection District.

Cribbage games were played at the Heeney party and Don Scott was the proud champion.

Charolette McDermit stopped by to visit Inell Harcvey Friday evening and brought Inell a beautiful Easter lily plant. Charolette resides in Hot Sulphur Springs and is employed in the office at Kremmling Memorial Hospital.

The Kremmling Friday potluck luncheon group is conducting a drive to invite all people to their luncheon. If you wish, bring a covered dish to share. Otherwise, the suggested donation is only $2.50 each.

It’s absolutely guaranteed that in no place else in this area can one get such a good home-cooked meal, all you can eat, including drink and dessert for such a small donation. It’s being discovered more and more all the time that this area has some wonderful cooks.

Then, if you wish, you can play Bingo and that only costs 25 cents for over an hour full of games. It’s fun to win a bunch of quarters. Lunches are at noon every Friday in the Kremmling Fairgrounds Extension Hall. Everyone is invited.

Inell’s error corrected: Former Kremmling resident Mike Sparacino does not work at Ft. Morgan Cemetary. He is employed at Ft. Logan Hospital in Denver. He has been with the hospital a few weeks and is very happy with his position.

Harold Steensma spent Easter Sunday in the home of his granddaughter and her husband, Donna and Tony Stitch, at Catamount near Steamboat Springs.

“Laughter is like changing a baby’s diaper. It doesn’t permanently solve any problems, but it makes things more acceptable for a while.” Barbara Johnson

Ronnie James spent a few days visiting her school days friend, Denise, in Grand Junction. Denise is the daughter of Fred and Martha Wall. Ronnie had a “recall” on her truck, so she made a stop in Glenwood Springs to have that taken care of.

Jenny Elliott recently returned from a trip to California again where she attended the wedding of her father.

Inell is having a little “cat party” for her cat, Houdini, who will be 9 years old on April Fool’s day. (Houdini is no April Fool though).

Happy birthdays to Chris Chamberlain, Season Weimer, Kaylee Bumgarner, Jane Land, Patty Madison, Norma Andress, Kathleen Larkin, Clara Jean Petertsen, Kristin O’Hotto, Alycis Taussig, Jay Yust and to David Valance.

The flower for April is the Sweet Pea. April’s birthstone is the diamond. Most have no color at all, but some have pale tints of yellow, pink and blue. Made of crystallized carbon, diamonds easily catch light when cut and polished properly. They symbolize love, strength and innocence.

Jack Taylor, with wife Ann Marie and Don and Keats Scott of Heeney, Ralph and Susan Christie of Silverthorne and Susan’s mother, Mary Ellen, all enjoyed dinner Saturday evening in a Frisco restaurant. The Christies have a vacation home in Silverthorne, but reside in Denver.

They are long time friends of the Scotts.

The weekly Heeney card party was cancelled last Friday evening ” the night before Easter weekend.
