Inell Harvey: As snow melts, we take pleasure in each small seasonal change

This summer season is coming alive with dreams of pleasure and fun. The radiant sunsets are flaunting bright beatury and the sunshine stays longer into the nights.

May and June may bring the longest days of the year, but for now, these seasonal pleasures are being enjoyed. The weeks seem to slip by all too quickly. Many lovely birds fill the air with their songs of joy.

Passover is April 20. It begins at sunset on April 19.

There will be a full moon on Sunday, April 20.

Don and Keats Scott spent a few days last week in Phoenix, Ariz. where they visited with Don’s brother and his wife, Doug and Erin Scott. Doug is suffering with cancer. The Scotts reported the weather in Phoenix was in the low 80s and very pleasant.

There will be a special Heeney party this Saturday, starting at 5:30 p.m. in the Heeney Community Center. This promises to be a fun evening with much visiting, music and a few games in addition to the potluck dinner. Everyone is welcome. Bring a covered dish to share and your own drinks.

Last Saturday’s card party was attended by the regular three couples, plus Jenny Elliott and Sandy Keon. Sandy was the big penny winner at cards that night.

The workshop “Maintain your Brain,” presented by the Alzheimer’s Association, which was held last Thursday afternoon in Cliffview Assisted Living Center in Kremmling, was very well attended. It was a very informative educational workshop. Besides the area residents, all residents of Cliffview also attended.

The chair aerobics class, which is conducted by Inell Harvey, was not held last Thursday at Cliffview Assisted Living Center, because of a special workshop being conducted at the Center.

Mary Sanchez, Inell’s friend, gave her a belated birthday gift last week, and it was one of the nicest ones Inell could receive. Mary came over and cleaned her dirty house for her. That was very special.

Inell needs help desperately. She is hoping someone can tell her how to convince her little poodle dog, Bruno, that her cat, Houdini’s litter box is not a candy dish.

Kremmling’s Rosie O’Hotto is recuperating at home following surgery in a Denver hospital last week. Her husband, Ron, is proving to be an excellent nurse and “chief cook and bottle washer.” Many people have missed Rosie terribly in her “Rosie’s Beauty Salon.” Her many friends are wishing her well.

Jenny Elliott is happy to be home from her vacation in Hawaii – for a short while before she takes to the skies for another adventure. She went to Hawaii alone for a relaxing vacation – can’t say it was relaxing as she was very busy having a good time the whole time she was there. A few of her activities were kayaking, snorkeling, hiking, sightseeing, shoping and almost sky diving. She was flying above the clouds, had all her gear on and was strapped to her instructor, ready to make a tandem jump when their radio called them back down because it was raining on the ground. This was a major disappointment for Jenny. This was her last day of vacation, so she had no time to re-schedule another jump. She still plans to sky dive, however.

Somewhere else, sometime soon.

A few locals gathered at Green Mountain Inn in Heeney Friday night to wish farewell to Kevin and Denise Curley and children Ciara and Kevin, who have closed the Inn and are moving to Northern California. An interesting thing happened at this party – Jenny Elliott won at cribbage over the king, Don Scott. The Inn will no be closed for a short while. The Curley’s will be missed in Heeney, but are wished the best of everything in their new endeavors.

Towing company: “We don’t charge and arm and a leg. We want tows.”

Auto body shop: “May we have the next dents?”

There are two kinds of people who don’t say much – those who are quiet and those who talk a lot.

Don Shane was in his Heeney home last weekend for the first time since closing the house last fall for the winter. Don Mertes and Shane enjoyed visiting on the sun deck Sunday and enjoyed the warm spring sunshine. Don Shane brought his new dog with him to Heeney.

Friends are those rare people who ask you how you are, and then wait to hear the answer.

Happy wedding anniversaries to the following seven couples: Dan and Charlene Canady, Warren and Teddy Matney, Don and Keats Scott, Larry and Teresa Banman, Gordon and Nicki Rister, Jim and Cassidy Henderhand and a happy 46th to Jerry and Ann Bennett in Old Park.

Congratulations to Savanah Dominguez on the birth of their 8 lb. 12 oz. baby girl who was born April 13 in Frisco. Savanah is the niece of Mary Sanchez.

Angelica Stubbs returned home to Kremmling after her two month stay in Ayapa, Nicaragua. She went there with her boyfriend, Clayton LeBaron, and his family. They all lived there, really roughing it, for two months, building a four-plex house. They (30 people) cooked on an open fire and slept in tents. She reported the weather was constantly in the 90s. Angelica sports a beautiful suntan. She took hundred of pictures and brought them over to Inell’s house to show on the TV screen.

Holly Reed, formerly of Kremmling, was married to Mike Hester in Cheyenne, Wyo. last weekend. Hester is in the U.S. Air Force and they were married in a chapel on the Air Force base, where they will reside. Holly’s parents, Curt and Jane Reed, were there for the wedding. Angelica Stubbs returned from Nicaragua to be a bridesmaid for the weeding and Erica Burr flew in from Germany to be the Maid of Honor. Corey Burr was the best man. Chris Russell of Kremmling was a groomsman. Angelica’s mother, Maria, and two sisters, Stephanie and Kassandra, drove to Cheyenne also. A reception following the wedding was at the Trailor’s Inn on the Air Force base.

Congratulations to Holly and Mike.

Happy birthdays this week to Peg Colburn, Jhan Pedersen, Inell’s great granddaughter Riley Freeman in Michigan, Glen Bakke, Annie Bourn, Angela Lynn Lay in Wyoming, Ted Wall, Brylie Miller, Bill Adams, Kym Colvin, Laurie Henderhan, Jason Adams, Sotera Santiago, Alan Wheatley, Dulci Henderhan, Joan Lee, Faris Marie Jones, former Kremmling residents Betty Girard, Olivia Mae Cordova, Warren Matney and to Inell’s niece Tonya Gosney near Durango.
