Tonawanda News — Wow! Love to get Doug’s historical insight in the Twin Cities. It’d be great if he wrote a column on these little known, but fascinating facts.
Here’s a pleasant note emailed from A.T., a Wheatfield resident.
“I can’t tell you how great it is to have the signal and Ruie and Ward roads taken down. Saves me at least two minutes on my way to work in NT. Compliments to the mayor. I’d also like to thank whoever was responsible for taking down the signal at Payne Avenue and Tremont Street. NT is really looking out for drivers.”
I concur with the writer, but would be gloriously happy to see the signa at Main and Thompson streets eliminated.
Do you use paper or cloth napkins at mealtime? A friend and I were discussing how so few people use cloth napkins which in our opinion is a shame. However, I told her that at a recent dinner for the family, with cloth napkins at every place, one of the grandchildren went out in the kitchen. When asked why, he said, “To get some napkins.”
“You have one at your plate,” he was told.
“I know, but those are just for good.”
Today we celebrate my daughter’s birthday. She was born on a beautiful May day, warm and sunny, just as she is today. No one could possibly have a daughter who brings more joy and caring than she does for our whole family. Happy birthday.
Something to make you smile:
My 9-year-old grandson and I were spreading compost in the flower garden. As I bent down to spread the compost, he let fly a shovel full which partially landed on me.
“I’m so sorry, grandma,” he lamented.
“No problem. You must have thought I was a flower,” I replied.
‘I did, because you are so beautiful.”Contact community editor Barbara Tucker at 693-1000, ext. 4110 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
