out of the woodwork

I'm sure our Sunshine community is no different than a lot of communities around the country.  As the weather warms up, people start to leave the confines of their houses and move outdoors.  Milo and I are seeing many of our neighbors on our evening walk.  It is such a joy to see so many smiling faces and to meet the new puppy dogs that have joined the neighborhood.  The warmer weather is also bringing on lots of events.  On Memorial Day weekend, Boulder celebrates the Creek Festival.  It is always a fun event with many, many vendors, art exhibits, rides and lots of fun things to do.  It will be interesting for me.  The map store is just across the street from Central Park, the site of the festival.  I hope I can get to work on time.

The band is playing twice around the 1st of the month.  We will be helping celebrate Ruby's 80th birthday.  The party is at her house on the 31st.  Our next gig is June 5th at the Outlook Hotel in Boulder.  7-10PM   Be there!  Mention my name and they will let you in for FREE!!!!!

Other news....We still have not seen the Prune Juice Posse.  Maybe they are lost on the Pennsylvania Turnpike.

Our community support group, Team Sunshine, is now the official "adopt a road" litter collectors for County Road 83.  The county put up a nice sign announcing that fact.  The orange bag is full our our newly collected trash.

The other good news is that fire station #1 is totally rebuilt.  The finishing touches were completed this week. 

Sunshine Fire Department, along with Team Sunshine will be hosting our annual breakfast the first Sunday in June.  I'll post more on that event shortly.

Finally, There will be a volleyball game and picnic on Memorial Day at the community volleyball court located behind fire station #2 (actually between the two fire stations).  Bring your own beverage and a dish to share.  Activities will begin around 1PM.

Keep smiling, hug your love ones, and tell someone you love them.

Mixed news

There is mixed news coming out of Sunshine on this eve of my 60th birthday.  At the end of my last entry, I asked for some prayers.  The good news is that Mary's procedure was successful.  We are expecting to see her smiling face walking with us in the mornings.

Now the sad news.  We lost our good friend and neighbor, Donna, yesterday morning.  She will be greatly missed.  She kept her smile and held her head high as she passed with great dignity.  I will fly the flag at half-staff in her honor until Monday.

 Hug your loved ones and tell them that you love them.
