Whole Nother library This Weekend

Saturday, December 2, 2oo6: It's a wild and crazy day for me. Wyoming's library is closed down because the heater has to be repaired. Pittston's is closed indefinitely because of flooding a few weeks ago. West Pittston's has no internet, and Plains is closed Saturdays. After driving around in circles for quite a while I'm in Kingston's Hoyt Library. Yesterday's weather was an absolute nightmare with torrential rainstorms & wind up to 40 m.p.h. according to my wind gauge-yes, I have one of those. Yesterday I watched Woody Allen's Bananas in honor of The Man's 71st birthday. I've always been a totally fan of his. Fran came over, with doughnuts, to say hello this morning. There are only 23 days until my first adult Pennsylvania Christmas. Decorations are up and the radio stations are playing carols nauseatingly early. Today is colder than average which is good because as much as I've always enjoyed warm weather, in December it's an awfully weird, flu_inducing feeling. Site of the day:

Beatle George's Anniversary

Friday, December 1, 2006: A couple of days ago, November 29, was the fifth anniversary, believe it or not, of the death of Beatle George Harrison. It's been a long time. At least we can still kick back & listen to his stuff. It's still insanely warm out. Weather has been going to obscene extremes all over the country. Tomorrow should be rain, maybe even snow. December & Christmas beckon. One of these days I have got to wise up & get another oil change. Site of the day:

How warm it is.

Thursday, November 30, 2006: These days, it's been unseasonably warm. Last night I watched the great 60's movie Oliver. Because of my days in St. Gabriel's glee club over in East Elmhurst, I couldn't help having all sorts of flashbacks when they sang those old songs. I kept expecting to have to answer to Brother Edmund & Brother James. Yesterday I got my flu shot over with. My relatives are all aflutter about some coin cousin the Ronald is trying to get straightened out. It's the latest fad in that bunch, I reckon. The Possessed still has my mind boggled and I've been reading a book by then-Cardinal Ratzinger(now Pope Benedict XVI) about the Adam & Eve story. It should supply me with an even greater supply of arguments against the politically correct crowd. Site of the day:

Just another manic Wednesday...

It's been a time for unseasonably warm weather lately. My doctor's appointment(flu shot, that is)is at 2:00 p.m. today. Life around here just seems to be getting nicer and more interesting by the minute. Unfortunately, I still don't know the area all that well but I'm getting the hang of it. I've been reading The Possessed and all sorts of theologically inclined books. It pays to be as knowledgeable as possible about that side of things especially in today's nauseatingly liberal cultural climate. Site of the day: I'm a bit of an internet junkie.

Cold weather

Tuesday, November 28, 2006: Today the weather is awfully cold. Last night I watched Twelve Angry Men, with Jack Klugman, Ed Begley, John Fiedler, etc. I'm still reading The Possessed. Life around here is really interesting. It's a little odd that I don't know all that many people compared to my N.Y. days. This will be my very first ever Christmas in the sticks. Shopping will be an absolute nightmare with traffic galore, same as every year. It will be odd not having to get mixed up with the O.L.P.H Christmas pageant. A groovy December awaits.

Latest Update

Monday, November 27, 2006: A couple of nights ago I saw Fred Astaire, Ginger Rogers & Edward Everett Horton in Top Hat. I'm still trying to recover from the Thanksgiving pigout a thon. The Ronald gave me a commemorative coin for the navy. It's been icy cold around here lately. By now I've gotten mighty sick & tired of icy car windows every morning. Winter, I reckon, will shonuf be quite barrel of laughs. For the past few weeks I've been attending the traditional Latin Mass in Pittston on Sundays. Site of the day:
