Re-reading the May-June issue of the Blue Ridge Acres news. Why? "Cause I enjoy so much Ruby Brownlng's history of our mountain. What fun)." Also chatted with Carmen Howe last week but can't fred my hen scratches from our conversation. I'd certainly never make a true reporter, intrepid or otherwise. Do remember that Carmen and Harvey were away over the fourth of July weekend visil old friend Middy whom many of us have met over the years. Seems that Mid- dy's grandson had a stroke - can you imagine that at the age of five? Neighbor George GaWt, still with his arm in a cast, came by to visit Russ. George hopes that at his appointment at Walter Reed the doctor's will remove the cast and find that his nerve is fully recovered - the nerve in his hand, that is. George is one of the residents of Blue Ridge Acres who claim they don't want or need air con- ditioning. Says he has one but never got around to installing it last year or so far this year. When I look at those 90-some temperatures, I wonder how he stands it, but he certainly seems un- daunted by the heat...Heard that Pap- py and Betts Kitchen finally gave in and got an air conditioner for their log cabin and are most pleased with it...Bertha DeVese and Gladys Gooch use their air conditioner intermittently but claim that it always cools down at night at Whispering Stream. The gals have a resdient chipmunk as well as several squirrels. Dspite their fur coats, the little animals go on their merry way chomping on the scratch that Bertha puts out for them. Bettie LaMotte, had a surprise for her birthday. Cyndy and Wayne Kit- chen, two other great crab lovers, in- vited Cal and Bettie down for hard shells. Cal and Bettie were also invited to happy hour at Marianne Cook's with Mary and Ruby Browning before go. ing to Wayne and Cyndy's. Imagine Bettie's surprise to find a full scale party of hard shell lovers - Cal had ex- panded the guest list to include Miggs Dotson, Bob and Mary Bell, and Lil and Bill Craghead. And boy did those crabs disappear ! The swimming pool looks perfectly beautiful but understand that there had been some problem with the water supply for clubhouse and office Despite the heat, volunteers started digging, found the air bubble in the water line and full service has been restored. All club property that is sup- posed to, now has water. Rah! Rah! Rah! Dan Conklln should be pleased now he can water the flowerbeds at the office which he so lovingly planted. Cannas and Dusty Miller certainly looks fine together. Some 50 people appeared to enjoy the club brunch held last Sunday mor- ning. The food was delicious and plen- tiful and everyone seemed to have a fine time. The club even made a pro- fit on the affair which was certainly much needed and welcomed. Sometimes this non-profit organiza- tion goes a mite too far. Amtlx covered dish supperis scheduled for July 23 - always a fun event. Details are on the Imlletin boml at the postal center and I'll get them for next week's column. Do know there will be horse racing in the club house after the dinner. We had planned a birthday picnic at our house over the holiday to celebrate a reunion which included the return of a long-lost stepson - Ed Gardlner of Florida. Due to Russ's ill health, the event was cancelled out here. But Ed (Sunny) to the family, brought his wife and her two boys plus his sister Pat Hardy out last Friday for a visit. Great tall tales were told of childhood events and lots of catching up on subsequent activities. Was fun; Russ and I en- joyed it. Now that son Mike's big wedding is over and done with and visiting Fritzes and Pinsons all returned to various parts of the U.S. of A., Jim and Marilyn are trying to pull themselves together and plan their next move and I do mean move. The Pinsons hope to build a small house in Blue Ridge Acres in the not . They own property in Florida and hope to divide their time between West Virginia and Florida when Jim retires in the next couple of years. We'll see. " Our black-eyed Susans and pink Cone flowers are blooming their hearts out - looks like they get secret water I don't know about while all the other flowers are drying on tl',eir stalks even the so-called hardy phlox. Last week however, on Hickory, the road was lin- ed with multitudes of sweet peas, but I never got around to picking any. NEWS OF YESTERYEAR SPIRIT DATED July 14, 1987 "Last Thursday's storm has been almost the whole topic of conversation at BRA...I'U tell you about some of the highlights I've gleaned, as usual in no particular order...Bertha DeVese and Gladys Gooch were among the bowlers at the Brdnswick Bowling Center when the entire roof blew off and inches of water covered the floor...Bertha and Gladys decided that home was best and returned to BRA only to find chaos there too. A beautiful cherry tree on the Shenandoah Drive side of their house had been uprooted, fell on the power lines and shorted out power to their home and several others in the area...In the "old area" only the houses close to Chestnut Hill Road escaped the power outages from fallen trees which lasted from four to eight hours in various areas...As soon as tho storm stopped, Jimmy (Kidwell) got in his truck with his pawer saw and removed any and all trees which were blocking roads. "Near misses...A maple tree bet- ween the Warfielcls and Virginia Bliz- zard's broke at the top and hung precariously over the power and phone lines which, luckily, had been reinforced a couple of years ago. Ed and Pat Wintermyer had a large oak leaning toward their house which split about 20 feet up - the oak, not the house. For reasons unknown, it fell away from the house instead of on it. The Kellys found their house by the process of looking behind a huge toppl- ed tree on WhRe Oak and sure enough, there it was, unhurt. Jean Tannyhill had a similar problem; could hardly get into her house for the huge fallen tree which had ripped out all her utility lines and blocked the driveway. Again, the house itself escaped damage. "Edna Peddicord had been to Frederick...and came innocently home only to find that she had trouble with two trees. One large tree on the upper side of her lot blew its top and split, but missed her house. Even closer fell a huge oak which was com- pletely uprooted and grazed the back of her house...Looked like maybe a black walnut that split in two at Glen and Marion Wellman's. They surely will be surprised when they return from Canada. Couldn't tell for sure what the large tree was that fell by Walter and Mildred Smith's house. "In the "new" section, as I mention- ed, there was a tree on the roof of Harry and Esther Beaumont's and the Palladi home seemed to have suffered a hit. Otherwise so far as Russ could see from riding about, the storm seems to have missed them." Beck to the present - 1988. I found that the column on the storm has so many items still of interest, I'm going to finish it next week; this epistle is long enough - Bye now...Faithfully... *"/ Our USED CAR RATE e % Harpers Ferry Branch 535-6336 Kearneysville Branch 876-2563 Full Service Bank help you i drive in . stylel Check with our :....: ;" "-"' Loan Officers ,.;,j.. ., r  ;,, .'.. . .,,,... ,- ,,; for fu rther :, ;.'/' ._.
