Malagash News with Marian Durling

Well it is January but the weather sure doesn't feel like it! Hung out a wash the other day without a heavy jacket. However, had a hard time keeping them on the line with the wind blowing and blowing! However, they dried and smelled so beautiful! 

Speaking of the wind, didn't it blow all through the night Friday? Woke up to no power! Thank heavens for a propane stove and a camping toaster, etc. Always able to get a meal in this house!  However, once again thanks to Nova Scotia Power for a job well done! 

Sure wouldn't want to be out repairing lines in that weather. Temperatures have been good also, just waiting for the other shoe to drop!  It is bound to happen very soon.  

Friday evening our legion was open and nice crowd to "Jig the Joker." The jackpot still hasn't gone and is starting to build. Great way to spend a couple of hours on Friday evening – drawing is at 8 p.m.

Open hours are from 6 p.m to 9 so it isn't a late evening. Someone is bound to bring some snacks for everyone to enjoy.

The scheduled card party which was scheduled for this past week was cancelled due to weather and the next one will be held on Tuesday, Jan. 23 at the community hall.

Events are starting again after the Christmas holidays. The first luncheon at the Malagash Hall will be held on Friday, Jan. 19 from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.  Soups and chowder and of course, lovely desserts. 

This is always a very popular luncheon and well attended.

The Christian Life and Growth committee of the Three Harbours Pastoral Charge is sponsoring a Games Night on Saturday, Jan. 27 at St. Andrews in Fox Harbour from 7 to 9 p.m., for the young and not so young. It`s a chance for everyone to have and play some board games, card games.  It is sure to be a lot of fun. Perhaps we can learn some new games.

Speaking of games, Robert and Jocelyn Dobson, Wanda and Dale Langille have just returned from a couple of days in Moncton. While there they visited the casino for a little while - according to Jocelyn - not very lucky!  Oh well, I go with $20  and when that is gone – there is no more!

The last week or so we have had a frequent visitor which appears outside our window on a daily basis showing off his beautiful plumage and tail feathers. It is a very beautiful pheasant and  hopefully we will continue to enjoy his presence and no, it won`t adorn our dinner table. Lots of deer, so be careful while driving as they are popping out all over the place. 

We have had a few birthdays in the last week or so – Rev. Connie and her son both celebrated one and this week a very dear friend is celebrating on the 15th, and then Graham Fraser on the 19th and yours truly on the 16th. Next year, Graham and I will be celebrating a big one! Happy Birthday to everyone in our area who is celebrating this week.  app

 

Have a good one and by sounds of things, our weather is going to continue to be much the same this next week. Don`t feel like making plans to go somewhere warm when it is so good here.
