At the Feeder,

 

As a Waynedale resident I admire the various forms of wild life in our community, especially the birds that frequent my back yard feeders. On any given day, our lawn fills with birds of every size and description. Cardinals, finches, Juncos but I especially love the sparrows. I know what you're thinking sparrows? Yuck! They're messy and noisy and NUMEROUS! They take without asking, they aren't pretty and their song is "cheap". Sparrows aren't very spectacular, I'll give you...

Life Is Like a Big Hunt

 

Last week my sons, Greg, Kevin, and I went to Montana to hunt for mule deer and elk. Two other men in the camp were from PA. Greg, Kevin and I, of course wanted to get as large an animal as possible but, to get a decent size one was better than waiting for the largest and not getting any at all.

The first day out I spotted what was to me the largest one I had ever been close to. The buck walked out in the clearing for me to have a shot. I took it, and got my...

Owners Roy and Laurie Duff from Gio’s.

Oooooohhh I just have to tell you what has gone on since my last column. Wayne and I have healed up nicely thank you so very much. I think the cards and letters we received from you good folks in Waynedale and the surrounding area helped. Bobby Stark even got a concerned phone call from California inquiring as to the state of our health. It was from a widower who was awestruck with my picture at the head of my column I guess; he just wanted to know how Wayne and I were getting along and he...

Baseball’s Commemorative Stamp Issued In 1939

Baseball During The Civil War

 

The other day I came across a book titled "From Pastime to Passion, Baseball and the Civil War" by Patricia Millan. In her book she states that some baseball was played between regiments during the war but a holiday feast, letter or package from home got priority over a baseball game.

You see baseball told us with a baseball commemorative postage stamp issued 6/12/39 that Abner Doubleday (1819-1893) founded baseball at Cooperstown in 1839. Research later...

Christmas comes earlier and earlier every year. The stores put out their holiday displays before Halloween. The toy catalogues start coming before Thanksgiving, and this year so did the holiday movies. I'm usually opposed to this sort of commercial, extend the season to extend the profit type of Yuletide hype. However, if it always came in the form of a really cute family movie, I suppose it wouldn't be so bad. The Santa Clause 2, starring Tim Allen (Joe Somebody, Home Improvement), was so...
