On this day in 1616, literary giants William Shakespeare & Miguel de Cervantes both died. It was not on exactly the same day though, but it is recorded as such because of the difference in England's & Spain's calendars during their era. The weather lately has been very bad. There has been an icy cold rainstorm around here ever since early last evening. Last week I got my very first ever ticket for a moving violation. It was on Tenth Street in Wyoming. The library & Methodist church next door will be having another book sale. They have some very good prices on some very good books. Uncle Frankie came over for a while yesterday to have supper with us. The Carmelite meeting went well this past Saturday morning in Wilkes~Barre. We have them every third Saturday of the month at 9:00 a.m. at the Little Flower Manor. While I was there my parents went out for some Chinese food with Fran & Uncle Frankie. Unfortunately Fr. McGroarty from St. John the Evangelist Church in Pittston died last week at about ninety~four years of age. I went to his wake on Thursday afternoon. There was also a Mass of Transferral on Thursday at 7:00 p.m. & a funeral Mass on Friday at 11:00 a.m. I used to see him at St. John's quite frequently for Mass & confession.
