Kremmling: Summer fades, giving way to fall

Inell Harvey

Farewell to summer. Hello autumn. In any season, people are fortunate to live in beautiful Colorado.

Summer has faded and pretty gold and crimson leaves are falling. Harvest time is over. Bears are getting fat in preparation for their hibernating winter.

The awesome power of bitter frost has taken its toll on late gardens and pretty flowers. Lovely autumn is upon us and beautiful winter is coming as evening shadows grow longer.

The full harvest moon has been beautiful.

Great news in Heeney is the new gateway entrance at the firehouse/community center. The words on it are “Lower Blue Fire Protection District.”

The two huge Douglas fir posts were donated by Flanigan’s Lazy Shamrock Ranch. This makes a very attractive drive-through entrance and is definitely a plus for Heeney.

Never underestimate the power of a kind word or deed.

Welcome home to Pastor Doug Stevenson and his wife Ethel. They had spent the last month in New Zealand visiting relatives and friends. They also attended the funeral service for Ethel’s mother.

Sympathies and prayers have been with the Stevensons, their two daughters and relatives.

October 9 is Columbus Day.

The moon will be in its last quarter tomorrow, Oct. 3.

Steve Hadlik from Chicago has been a guest of Don Mertes. Last week, Hadlik made a short trip to visit in Moab, Utah, and Tuesday he left Heeney for his home in Chicago. He joined the Saturday night card-playing group last weekend.

Ken and Stella Wheatley are enjoying this fall weather out on their ranch. They are both well; however, they are not getting out as much as they used to.

I’ll never understand the stock market. Some of my stock just went from the financial page to the comics.

Mark Twain said, “There is one advantage of being poor; a doctor will cure you quicker.”

Diane Philips of Boulder spent last weekend visiting in Heeney. She was honored with a birthday party Saturday night at the Philips home on Green Mountain Avenue.

Faith Taussig spent Monday afternoon visiting in Inell’s home. Faith has recently moved into the Silver Spruce Apartment building.

A guy dies and leaves the shortest will ever. It says, “Being of sound mind and body, I spent my money.”

People always say, “He died penniless, like it’s a bad thing.” Sounds like good timing to me.

Cheri Kinnison has recuperated from wrist surgery the last part of June and the past month she has been working full force at her Nails by Cheri studio, which is located in her home.

Happy birthdays are wished this week to Paul Gilbert, Dave Hargadine, Kendra (Jones) Lay in Riverton, Wyo., Cheryl Bumgarner, Jake Bentler, Steve Manguso, Martha Schake and to Travis C. Wood.

A vanload and two cars full of Kremmling seniors were at the Elk’s Lodge in Silverthorne to enjoy prime rib and shrimp dinners on Wednesday evening.

Memory, the daughter of attention, is the mother of teeming knowledge.

Watch for big problems. They disguise big opportunities.

Recent word from Frank and Bobbie Dees is that they are now in their Kerrville, Texas, home for a couple of months before more travels are planned.

They spent their last week in Colorado in the Fun Valley RV Park near South Fork, during that community’s square dance week, and reported that it was lots of fun. They sent pictures of their float trip on the South Fork of the Rio Grande River. The Dees send best regards to their many friends in this area.

You can’t take it with you. Did you ever see a hearse pulling a U-Haul?

Be a leader. Remember the lead sled dog is the only one with a decent view.

Happy wedding anniversaries are wished this week to the following three couples: Travis and Rhonda Busse; Steve and Martha Schake; and to Randy and Laurie Singer.

Inell was in Steamboat Springs this week keeping a doctor’s appointment and visiting her daughter Janifer. They also had lunch out and got some shopping done.

Jack Taylor and wife Ann Marie Damian enjoyed a weekend camping trip on the Cache la Poudre near Fort Collins. They enjoyed this trip and report it will be their last camping trip this year. They also celebrated their 20th wedding anniversary on Sept. 18. More will be reported later about another big anniversary celebration they have planned.

Chris and Misty Overholt and son Zade returned from a 10-day camping, boating and fishing trip to Lake Powell. They reported catching lots of fish as well as a wide variety of fish. The weather cooperated and they had a most enjoyable vacation.

It is difficult to save money when your neighbors keep buying things you can’t afford.

“How did a fool and his money get together in the first place?” asked Kathleen Russell.

After you’ve worked hard to get what you want, take the time to enjoy it.

Houseguests last weekend in the Dan and Cheri Kinnison home were Dan’s brother Casey, his wife Lori and children Ashley, Tanner and Brent from Fort Morgan. Brent is now residing in Kremmling and is employed at Henderson Mill.

Don’t be called out on strikes, Go down swinging.

A smile is contagious; be a carrier.
