Inell Harvey: Wintertime is definitely here

Jack Frost visits every night and tints the windows with his white brush as the earth sleeps beneath the new snow. Wintertime is definitely here and the days are moving forward slower. Dear Mother Nature is keeping the good earth warm with her vast expanse of white.

A small group last week attended the Saturday night card party that was held in the late Dick and Maggie Phillips home on Green Mountain Avenue in Heeney. Present were Jack Taylor, his wife Ann Marie, Don and Keats Scott and Jim Menilli. Jim’s wife, Charolette, a lawyer, was spending the weekend working in Denver.

Bruce and Ronnie James and Chris Overholt, neighbors on each side of Inell’s residence, have been very good to keep Inell’s front drive and sidewalks, as well as her car, cleaned of snow after each of these snowfalls in Kremmling recently.

Inell appreciates this very much, as she says it would be almost impossible for her to shovel snow.

Be bold and courageous. When you look back on your life, you’ll regret the things you didn’t do more then the things you did.

Live your life so that your epitaph could read, “No regrets.”

Katrina Gelinas and 10-year-old daughter, Kirsten, with friend Alvaro Medrano from Denver, visited in Katrina’s grandmother’s (Inell Harvey) home Saturday. They enjoyed dinner in a Kremmling restaurant.

Saydee, Inell’s little dog, lost her brown fur jacket, which was a Christmas gift. Inell was putting her two dogs in the car, the phone rang, and when she returned a minute later, Saydee had no jacket on. She had managed to rub it off and Inell couldn’t find it. Snow fell that night. So, perhaps when the spring thaw comes it can be found. (It may be rotten by then.)

Laugh a lot. A good sense of humor cures almost all of life’s ills.

When talking to the press, remember, they always have the last word.

Just to see how it feels, for the next 24 hours, refrain from criticizing anybody or anything.
