Inell Harvey: Rumor has it summer may not get here before fall

The exquisite beauty of winter is long gone and spring’s beauty is divinely planned and supremely designed. Soon, there will be lush green foliage on these bare tree limbs, and the smell of fresh cut green grass will be good as it begins growth anew.

The moon will be in its last quarter Monday, April 28. There will be a new moon on May 5.

The Kiddie Pond in Heeney was officially thawed out on Saturday, April 19.

Sympathies and prayers are with the family and friends of Bob Morrow who passed away last week in his sleep in his room at Kremmling’s Cliffview Assisted Living Center.

Stella Wheatley spend a couple days in Kremmling Memorial Hospital last week. She is now recuperating well in her home with husband, Ken, in the Williams Fork area.

Rumor has it that summer may not get here before fall starts. It snowed all day Tuesday, April 15. Guess Mother Nature was trying to tell people that they should have had their income tax returns in before the last day, so they wouldn’t need to make a trip to the post office in the falling snow.

Tough times don’t last … tough people do.

Happy wedding anniversaries to Terry and Rynda Parrott, Glen and Jan Almgren, Larry and Jane Jenssen, a 13th to Max Tischlor and Jean Landess, Jim and Renee Kraker in Parshall, Don and Stephanie Sanford and a happy first to Tim and Susan Wall.

Tomorrow, April 25, at noon, the Kremmling potluck will be held in the Silver Spruce dining room instead of the fairgrounds extension hall. (The high school seniors will be decorating the hall for prom). This will be another brunch (pancakes, biscuits, eggs, bacon, ham, sausage, fruit, juices and other beverages) – all you can eat.

Come one, come all, and enjoy a noon wonderful meal and lots of visiting. (Do not bring a covered dish this day).

Kremmling’s librarian Glen Shepherd was a guest at last Friday’s potluck luncheon in the Kremmling fairgrounds extension hall.

Perry Handyside was honored royally Saturday night when he was guest of honor at the West Grand Community Educational Foundation annual banquet. Handyside was named “Outstanding Citizen.” He received the award on stage in the West Grand High School auditorium.

One of Handyside’s sons gave a great, hour-long, very entertaining speech about his life and the many positive ways he has contributed toward making this community better. He has worn many hats in the almost 15 years he has managed the Blue Valley Ranch near Kremmling. This was a great honor bestowed on a well-deserving, respected man. Overviews of the West Grand schools were presented and the entertainment featured “Chicken Lips.” Oh yes, a wonderful banquet steak dinner in the high school commons, with Jeff Perry as master of ceremonies, was first on the agenda. Congratulations, Perry Handyside. No one, but no one, could deserve it more.

A secret is something you tell one person at a time.

Jerilee of Jerilee’s Paw Spa in Granby groomed Inell’s little Shih Tzu dog, Saydee, last Wednesday. Now, Saydee has to wear a sweater because Inell had her do a summer clip.

Pat Lynd was released from Kremmling Memorial Hospital after having spent 10 days as a patient. She is recuperating well in her Silver Spruce apartment. Alden (Pat’s husband) is living in the Kremmling Memorial Nursing Home.

A light above the kitchen sink in Inell’s house quit working. Who brought in a brand new fixture and installed it? That Good Samaritan Harold Steensma did.

Happy birthdays to Mike Sherman, Samuel Scott Cameron, Chelsea Carpenter, Jeff Henderhan, Gail Culbreath, Inell’s granddaughter Katrina Galanis, Nancy Whitfield and to Inell’s sister-in-law Jane Sallada in Cincinnati.

The Parshall Chapel people held a church service Sunday afternoon in the Cliffview Assisted Living Center in Kremmling for the residents.

Dan and Cheri Kinnison are having a big yard sale on Saturday, May 2, at there home, 909 Eagle, in Kremmling. It is a moving sale – everything goes. (There is more information about the Kinnison sale later in this column.)

Janifer and Jeff Peterka (Inell’s daughter and husband) of Steamboat Springs and friends Chris and Peg Haggenbough, went to a ski area near Salt Lake City for three days of skiing after the Mt. Werner ski area closed in Steamboat Springs. They are all ski instructors and look forward to a fun vacation there each spring.

Former Heeney resident Pearl Nauman has moved from her residence in Littleton. Inell received the birthday card she had mailed back, saying the forwarding time had expired. If anyone knows her correct address, please call Inell at (970) 724-3605.

The Heeney party last Saturday night in the Heeney Community Center was a blast, well attended and everyone had a good time after the delicious potluck dinner. A few games were played. Bill York won on of the two cribbage games he and Don Scott played. Bill was very pleased.

Apologies to Don and Keats Scott because this column mistakenly wished them a happy anniversary in April. Their anniversary isn’t until May 18. It will be their 40th. (They’re still kids.)

Mo: “What was your mother’s name before she married?”

Jo: “I didn’t have a mother before she married.”

The Kremmling Senior Potluck luncheon group is putting out a very nice hardback cookbook. They need at least 700 recipes. So, if you would please send in your favorite recipes with your name and town, they will be very much appreciated.

Chickens are the only animals you can eat before they are born and after they are dead.

There will be no Heeney Hearsay column in this paper next week, but it will resume the following week – May 1.

It’s hard to be nostalgic when you can’t remember anything.
