Lilly Lines by Jack Barlick 886-4694

It seems like the leaves fell from the trees very fast this fall putting the woodlands into position to receive the upcoming snows that are predicted as I write this column, oh well, this elderly grizzly intends to hibernate most of the winter, the lower the temperature the lower are the odds of seeing me venturing out.

FOOTSTEPS
Granddaughter Kaylee Mento will be 10 years old in a few days and she already is writing a book about a fictional family at Christmas. I am so proud of her.

REMINDERS
As Thanksgiving approaches next week keep in mind that Saturday evening at 7:00 PM will be the annual Lilly Christmas lighting at the Ambulance building. There will also be horse and sleigh rides going on from 5:00 PM until 9:00 PM. Reservations for rides can be made at Galls Insurance Agency for $4 a person. Any openings ride night will be filled first come-first served.
This is a great family treat for the holiday season.

After the tree lighting Santa will be at the Borough building for a visit with cookies and hot chocolate on hand. Also venture up the street to St. Lukes to view the many Nativity displays in the church.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING
Here is wishing all my readers a safe and happy Thanksgiving. Enjoy the day with your family and friends.

OLD TIMER
You are becoming or are an old-timer if you remember walking on the newspapers to get an ice cream cone at the news stand.

Note: A co-worker with my daughter Jackie isn’t sure if she is an old-timer or not. I told Jackie to ask her is she went to Saint Brigids grade school If she did, she is an old-timer.
