Merry Christmas to my reader-friends
The early part of the week before Christmas Day was beautiful around here. Let’s hope the weather is good for the Big Day with all the travel that will take place. We have been very fortunate with our holiday season’s weather; we could have had a lot of snow instead of the rain.
I thought one of the best holiday season TV shows we saw was Darci Lynne (I hope I spelled that right), who is a very talented
14-year-old singer and ventrilo- quist. And did I spell that right?
Another TV holiday special that was certainly quite colorful was “The Great Christmas Light Fight.” It was about as colorful as anyone would want to see as they went to a half-dozen places around the country where families and groups had outdone themselves with Christmas lighting.
And do those TV commercials for the New Year’s Eve programs really have to start running a week before we have Christmas? Oh, yes, I suppose so!
As this will be our final column before Christmas, may I offer my hope that all of my reader-friends have a Merry Christmas and that all your dreams come true!
CASH BASH COMING Oh, and by the way, if you need a great last-minute Christmas gift, how about a Goodwill Fire Company Cash Bash ticket?
Our members have tickets, including me, or you can contact our treasurer John Cvach at 443262-8009. He can take care of you. This is a major fundraiser for the volunteers and it will be held on May 4, next year, with exactly 1,000 tickets sold at $100 each. There is a top cash prize of $10,000 that will be awarded, plus 145 cash drawings every 2 ½ minutes from noon to 6 p.m. with amounts ranging from $125 to $3,000. That final drawing for
$10,000 will be at 6 p.m. And, oh yes, there will be free food and beverages all day. I’ll tell you one thing; it is a heckuva lot better odds than the Lottery!
DIM THOSE LIGHTS
Is it just me or have other drivers noticed that there seem to be many drivers coming through town after dark with headlights on full blast. They don’t seem to know how to dim lights to approaching cars. In fact, if I’m not wrong, I believe lights are supposed to be dimmed when entering a town or city. MORE COLTS STUFF After those Baltimore Colts snuck off to Indiana years ago after I had used up some 17 years of season tickets, we finally were able to get back into the NFL with our Baltimore Ravens — who, by the way, played a good game Sunday for a needed win.
Anyway, I had a big box of
Colts memorabilia after left left town, and got rid of it to another Colts fan. Now comes more Colts memories. The girls were helping Ruth clean upstairs the other day and brought me down a box with one of those miniature footballs with the Baltimore Colts logo on the side. They even found a winter woolen hat that Ruth used to wear to the games when it was really cold. It had the Colts logo on it.
Any longtime Baltimore Colts fans still around? You are welcome to this miniature ball if you want it!
I was reading a couple stories about the state seeking proposals on just where to build a third Chesapeake Bay Bridge; that we must be careful as to where it goes up that the infrastructure of new roads will take a lot of our good farmland. I see where Kent County even has a group formed that is fighting the idea of having the span come across the Bay into Kent County.
I also read where Queen Anne’s County has the most farmland acres and the largest farming economy in Maryland. The state’s farmland contributes a TRILLION dollars a year to the U.S. economy in it said. So consider carefully where that third Bay Bridge is going to go.
