Inell Harvey: Fishermen having success at Green Mountain Reservoir

Old Mother Nature has blanketed the earth with winter’s frosty, sparkling dress.

At nighttime, the brilliance of the moon’s mirrored light is radiant and all is tranquil.

Early mornings, the air is filled with tiny sparkling ice crystals. Kremmling’s Faith Taussig remarked that she had even tried to snatch the beautiful silver diadems, but they disappeared when they touched her hands.

There will be a full moon on Jan. 22. The moon was in its first quarter on Jan. 15.

Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday will be observed on Monday, Jan. 21. Government offices will be closed.

Sledding is the big thing in the Heeney area now. The snow is perfect for this.

Many ice fishermen are sporting good catches from Green Mountain Reservoir. Last weekend, the lower end of the lake by the dam was dotted thickly with ice fishermen.

There was no Saturday night card party last week due to vacationing people.

May you never miss a beautiful sunset because you are looking down.

Frogs have it easy; they can eat what bugs them.

Congratulations to Marge Kennedy and Terry Pfeiffer show were united in marriage Sunday afternoon in Kremmling’s Cliffview Assisted Living Center. The double ring ceremony was performed by Pastor Dan Canady of the Kremmling Community Church. Marge was very lovely in her pretty gown and carrying a beautiful bouquet. Terry owns his own excavating business and Marge has been employed at the assisted living center approximately two years. Therefore, all the residents and staff were present, besides the other guests. Jim Lynch played his guitar and sand wedding songs for the couple. They plan to make their home in Kremmling.

The Kremmling potluck seniors are conducting a drawing for a hand crocheted afghan.

The afghan is currently on display at the Bank of the West in Kremmling. Tickets are being sold at six for $5 or $1 each. At this writing, Rich Janousek has sold more tickets than anyone else.

Judge your success by the degree that you’re enjoying peace, health and love.

A good sense of humor helps us to overcome the unbecoming, understand the inconsequential, tolerate the unpleasant, overcome the unexpected and outlast the unbearable.

Jim Menilli, with wife Charolette, and Don and Keats Scott enjoyed dinner at the Green Mountain Inn in Heeney Saturday evening. Many locals enjoyed visiting at the Inn that night. At times, the Inn can be very crowded, but everyone had fun.

Take care of your reputation. It’s your most valuable asset.

Evelyn Woomer, Inell’s 97-year-old sister in southwestern Colorado, is recuperating slowly, but well, after having suffered a couple fractured ribs when she had a fall recently. She continues to live in her own home.

In last week’s Heeney Hearsay column, it stated that Sharon Schoenberger, Eunice Marte, Helen Keesey and Inell Harvey attended a Regional Advisory Council on Aging board meeting in Frisco. That was in error, as the article was written the night before. We did not go, because the meeting was called off at the last minute due to the snowstorm. (Sorry for the error.)

A sense of humor is like a needle and thread; it will patch up so many things.

If con is the opposite of pro, is Congress the opposite of progress?

Joan Lee visited in Inell Harvey’s home for a couple hours before she attended the Friday evening Bible study in the Kremmling Community Church building.

Don Scott is no longer s Chicago Cubs stock holder. He sold his shares last week. (People who know Don figure he’ll be buying them back in again soon.)

There is a lot to be thankful for if you take time to look for it. Right now, some people are thinking how nice it is that wrinkles don’t hurt.

Rich and Dottie Janousek visited in Inell’s home Wednesday afternoon.

Mike and Renita Lucas have a large model train set up in their garage. (As most people know, Mike is a real train buff.) The model train in their garage is on a hoist.

So, it can be raised and lowered when necessary.

Florence Schoff is home and recuperating well since her major surgery a few days ago in the Steamboat Sprimgs hospital. Florence is the mother of Kathy Yost, who is the Kremmling high school music teacher. Kathy and husband, Jim, are owner/operators of the Latigo Ranch on the Gore. Florence is active in the Kremmling senior groups. At this writing, they are undecided whether or not she will undergo radiation treatments.

Happy late wedding anniversary to David and Dulcie Henderhan who celebrated on Jan. 17.

The secret of dealing successfully with a child is to not be his parents.

Larry Banman was the installimg officer last Friday when the 2008 officers were installed for the Kremmling potluck group. Rich Janouseck was installed as President for a second term. Inell Harvey as Vice President, Dottie Barnes as Secretary, ahd Harold Steensma as Treasurer for the fourth term. Larry Banman was appreciated for taking the time out of his busy schedule to do the installing.

Happy birthdays are wished this week to Ken Off, Mike Ohri Chamberlain, Peg Scholl, former Heeney resident Susie Middagh, Lydia Dell and to Bruce James.

Skiers, please don’t venture out in the “out of bounds” area this winter.
