Sunday Morning "News on The Run" and Other Musings

What a difference a day makes, and not necessarily in a good way.  Have spent almost the entire week in short sleeve shirts and shorts here in downtown Mountaindale...last night leaving Nadia's in Hurleyville, you could feel a decidedly brisk tinge in the air and this morning it is down right nippy out.  Weather wise, look for a very windy and wet week and if the temperatures were to plummet a bit more, would not rule out a SNOW STORM!

Speaking of Nadias and Hurleyville a couple of things to share...the Hawaiian Luau last night at Nadia's was a HUGE SUCCESS...Deb is a very gifted vocalist, almost everyone has dressed for the occasion, and the  buffet was even better than it always is with some great Luau themed entrees.  More on this...including pictures later today or tomorrow.  Also, please do not Saturday and Sunday the Sullivan County Museum in Hurleyville is playing host to a Vaudeville Production that will take you back to the Catskills in the Roaring 20s...seating for this wonderful is limited, so get your tickets early

I have been doing some photography for the show, so have had a chance to get a SNEAK PEAK, and this is a show you do not want to miss.  It really takes you for a walk back through the history of those hey days of the 1920s and the talent in the show is really incredible.

In other local news...the forsythia is in bloom, the county blanketed in places with a beautiful covering of bright yellow thickets grown wild over the decades.  Saw my first bluebird while over in Rock Hill earlier in the week, so Spring is OFFICIALLY here...if there is any doubt, the robin scampering around in the grass outside my window plucking worms from the earth leaves no doubt of that fact.
