Inell Harvey: Don’t forget to thank mothers, grandmothers this Sunday

Happy Mother’s Day to all mothers out there – and a special day to all grandmothers, too.

How can I thank you, Mother, for your tender loving care, for your warm, embracing arms and your softly whispered prayers? How can I ever thank you for the blessings you impart, for all the tenderness of love that overflows your heart?

A mother is the best friend anyone ever has.

On Mother’s Day, moms should be able to wake up and say to themselves, “I’m not just a housewife, I’m a domestic goddess.”

The moon will be in its first quarter Monday, May 15. There was a new moon on May 5.

May is usually God’s apology for February, but this year it’s something else. It

snowed several inches in this area on May Day, May 1.

Wishing a late happy 37th anniversary to Juan and Mary Grace Sanchez, who celebrated on May 1. Hope it was a good one. (Very sorry this is late, kids.)

Happy wedding anniversaries to Kent and Cindy Hester and to Jarrod and Carly Pulliam on May 12, and to Chuck and Joanna April on May 14.

The Green Mountain Inn in Heeney is currently closed. Previous owners Kevin and Denise Curley and their children have recently had a yard sale and moved back to California. When more information about the Inn is known, it will be printed in this column.

Sympathies and prayers are with Eric Scott and his uncle, Don Scott, in Heeney. Eric’s father, who is Don’s brother, Douglas Scott, passed away last Sunday in Mesa, Ariz. where he and his wife, Erin, resided. He had suffered with cancer. Both Eric and Don Scott had visited in Mesa, Ariz. within the past month.

Yours truly recently learned that an acquaintance in Heeney had passed away about two months ago. His name is Kent Hewitt and he had not been well since a serious auto accident he was involved in a few months ago.

Betty Stephens in Heeney saw the first hummingbird reported in this area this spring. Betty was shocked to see the hummer, because there was snow in the air. The sighting was Wednesday, April 30. (Pray that the bird won’t freeze to death before the flowers bloom.) Betty Stephens immediately put out a feeder for the bird. Since this sighting, there have been others, and feeders are being put out all over Heeney.

Absurdity is a statement of belief manifestly inconsistent with one’s own opinion.

Too many people are ready to carry the stool when the piano needs to be moved.

Kremmling potluck seniors are putting together a community cookbook. They need many recipes. It’s fun to see your name by a recipe in a good cookbook. Call Dottie at (970) 724-9481 or mail recipes to Dottie, P.O. Box 1055, Kremmling, CO 80459.

Happy late birthdays to Willie Winsett, Debbie Manuel, Kyndra Gore, Paulette O’Hotto, Jan Ray Off, Dale Mitchner, Tanner Parrott, Cassidy Henderhan, Richard Curry, Janet Ohri, Hazel Wood, Michelle Parrott, Amy Myers, Kim Bodemann, Travis Busse, Laura Gore, Velda Pulliam, Chona E. Santiago, Rusty Cordova, Mary Rothrock, 11-year-old Justin Jacobi and to Rheann Peach.

Mr. and Mrs. Banman, in Kansas, celebrated their wedding anniversary on May 4. They are the parents of Kremmling’s Larry Banman.

Stella Wheatley and her daughter-in-law, Irene Wheatley, visited in Inell Harvey’s home Saturday. Stella and Inell reminisced about their trip to Alaska a few years ago.

Inell Harvey spent last week visiting her 97-year-old sister, Evelyn Wommer and her husband, Ed, in southwestern Colorado. Janifer Peterka (Inell’s daughter) of Steamboat Springs accompanied her. Evelyn’s son, Don Gosney, flew his jet to pick up Inell and Janifer and also brought them home. Weather in the Durango/Bayfield area was live nice summer. Inell reports that she enjoyed her 40-minute flight much more than driving her car eight hours each way. Janifer also enjoyed flying over the Aspen ski area (and other ski areas) where she recently skied. She had taken pictures on the Aspen ski area and this time she took pictures from the plane above the area.

This is late, but congratulations to Misty and Chris Overholt on the new baby girl who was born April 18 and weighed 7 lbs. 8 oz. Her name is Tylinn Weatherby Overhot and she’s even cuter than her parents.

The Heeney weekly card games were held at the home of Don and Keats Scott Saturday evening. Diane Philips of Boulder was present, as was Jenny Elliott, Jack Taylor and wife, Ann Marie, Jim Menilli and Don and Keats Scott.

Don and Keats Scott spend last Wednesday in Denver. Keats had her car services and Don kept an eye doctor appointment.

Barbara Johnson said she would unscramble the eggs if someone would give her the recipe backward.

Maturity is when we change from cocksureness into thoughtful uncertainty.

The West Grand High School play, “The Little Mermaid,” was really a bash this year.

The 16 students in the cast performed quite well indeed. (Of course, the instructors had a little to do with it.) Dialogue was memorized well and stage performances were very good. Music teacher, Ken Cotter, volunteered his time playing the piano for the play. Dinners were served in the high school commons area both Thursday and Friday evenings before the play by Zeta Pi sorority.

Harold Steensma continues to be a Good Samaritan. He got Inell’s car running again after she was neglectful, leaving a door ajar, which caused the inside lights to run the battery down.

Happy birthdays to Georgann Pineda, Al Manguso, Glyn Sheppard, former area resident Ron Aylor, Daniel Stubbs Sr., Rebecca Burger (on Mother’s Day), Paige Pulliam, Teresa Banman, Tom Lay, Jody Hill, Timothy Haynes and to Florence Schoff.

The flower for May is the Lily of the Valley. May’s stone is the emerald. It is a form of beryl in a mixture of beyllium and aluminum silicates. A deep, rich green in color, it is a symbol of love.

Jenny Elliott returned to her Heeney home after attending the wedding reception for her dad and his wife in California. She reports the reception was attended by over 100 friends and family.

Elk are coming down to this neck of the woods this spring. Jenny Elliott reported seeing an elk between Heeney and Silverthorne recently.

Your day goes the way the corners of your mouth turn. Smile.
