Benefit for Nicklaus

Maddie, Tray & Nick

Our wonderful friend, Jackie, wanted everyone to know about Nicklaus Gerlach's upcoming benefit. He lives in our neighborhood on the first road facing East & West. They are relatively new to the "hood" but Nick has become fast friends with Miss Maddie.

Unfortunately, he is in need of a bone marrow transplant. I'm sure this is very scary for this young family.

The benefit is on Saturday March 6th from 6:00-9:00 pm. The cost is only $7 for adults and $3.50 for children.

Jackie would like the neighborhood to come together and support this young family. Not only would it be an opportunity for us all to be together but it would also benefit our fellow neighbor. Please plan on attending if you can.

Danny's Birthday Party

The whole neighborhood (and guests) got together to celebrate Danny Flannagan's 46th birthday. Drinks, food and music.

The party was held at Bernies...but co-hosted by Bernie's sister Debbie. She made homemade tacos. Yummy!

Danny was very surprised as Miss Jess turned off all the lights and everyone shouted "Happy Birthday" as soon as he walked in the door.

Happy Birthday Mister Dan.

Hood Update

Things that have happened in the last 3 months-

Jessica celebrated a birthday. Had a big birthday party and the entire "hood" showed up as well as some other guests---such as Aunt Brenda and her date, Dave's son and girlfriend, Jim and Pam's friends. Jess got lots of presents and a good time was had by all.

Spaghetti night is still celebrated every Thursday night but the weekly special is always MEATLOAF. Larry says that the meatloaf should be called "loaf" because he doubts that they add any meat. HA! Betty and Becky always compete who can get the last bowl of soup.

Tony has started a cast iron pot collection and has been spending many days outside cooking over an open fire.

Jackie caught a fifty pound catfish but released it back into the lake. What! Would have made some nice catfish steaks. Darn!

Larry has bought a train horn and has been competing on a weekly basis with Jim on who can blow the loudest. Sounds like a train station has moved into the neighborhood.

Maddie lost a tooth and the tooth fairy brought her $20. Wow. I think I'll pull all my teeth and see how much money appears under my pillow.

Nicky and Andrew are back as well as Billie, Jerica and baby. Bernie is enjoying his role as grandpa. Welcome back guys...we missed you.

The editor and publisher have been on hiatus for the last several weeks.

Let's see---what has been going on in the neighborhood.

On June 18th we had spaghetti night at Cook's Corner. The special was Chicken Parmesan with a salad. Those in attendance were Debbie, Mason, Robin, Larry, Betty, Tony, Bernie and Becky. Everyone talked about the upcoming Luau Party but no other "hood" business was discussed.

On Saturday, June 20th, the annual weekend at Bernie's was held at Pam & Jim Flannagan's party barn. Pam passed out leis, grass skirts, coconut shells for our drinks along with little umbrellas. The entire Flannagan and Duncan group was dressed in Hawaiian wear. A great band played that night. A good time was had by all....though some had more fun than others! HA!

Thank you once again Bernie for hosting this great party...and many thanks to Jim and Pam for the themed activities and party favors.

June 25th we tried to have our last Spaghetti night with Debbie, Bryan and Mason but Cook's Corner had closed due to the extreme heat. We ended all getting split up. The Duncan/Flannagan clan went to Brazil. Tony, Becky, Betty, Larry and Miss Stella all went to Club 42, where we all had Hamburgers and French Fries. We laughed about all the activities and ciaos of the most recent party. After hearing all the fun everyone had at the party---Miss Stella said that she was glad that she missed it. HA!

Unfortunately, Becky had to work late on July 2nd so the Harris clan missed Spaghetti night. Betty and Larry tried out the new pizza place by Brian's business.

July 9th.... the Harris clan once again missed Spaghetti night...but we promise that we won't miss next week. Let's all meet at Cook's Corner.

Dan and Joel were down a couple of times in the last week. Dan (our cub reporter)---please update us on the activity down your way. Did you guys go fishing? Catch anything?

Signing off-

Officially Summer!

It is officially summer. Dana and Ed came down for the weekend!

Some people say that we you see the first robin you know it's spring...when we see Ed & Dana---we know the summer has started.

Al, Tracy, Danny, Jim, Pam, Dana, Ed, Tony & Becky all had an impromptu party at the barn.

At one point, we had an emergency...Pam had gone to the house to eat. She started choking--so she called Al & Tracy. Al & Tracy went running to the house to help Pam...followed by the whole crew. (There is no privacy in the hood!) Al performed the Heimlich maneuver which allowed Pam's airway to open up. Good job Al !

Spaghetti Night - June 4th

Robin, Bernie (Bernerd), Betty and Larry all attended Spaghetti Night. Unsure of the special or if any hood business was discussed.

Tony and Becky were unable to attend as they were celebrating their wedding anniversary...even though Mr. Harris temporary forgot the date. He had to spend the whole next day making up for his lack in memory.

Mike Has Left the Building

Mike Cramer has officially moved out of the "hood" on May 29th at 3:00 pm. He is moving to Mooresville to be closer to his son.

We wish him the best and hope he will stay in touch with us in the "Hood".

Bye Mike!

spaghetti Night - May 28th

The special was chicken fajitas. They had corn and potato soup and homemade honey rolls.
Larry, Betty, Tony & Becky were in attendance. No "hood" business was discussed.
The previous week Larry ate a hamburger, with bacon and a fried egg---all together under a bun. Yeah - I know....CRAZY.
I've previously said that Nicki & Andrew always ordered the "heart attack on a plate" which is chicken fried steak, mashed potatoes with gravy over everything. I think I'm going to name Larry's sandwich --- "heart attack on a bun".

Until next week...
