Feb 13, 2010 • Just in case you haven’t figured it out for youself, Bev’s service is going to be a big deal. My salon is all full up with appointments from now til then and there’s no more reliable barometer. Bev has been a fixture of this town, she grew up and married here and it just seemed she would be here forever, and maybe she could have been here a little longer. That’s all I’m going to say about that for right now.

Feb 11, 2010 • Hi, Hannah Silver here!  Like everyone in town, I want to go and show my respects to Bev at the funeral, but as of now I can’t go because I physically can’t get there.  As some of you know by now, I’ve been stuck rolling in a wheelchair since my Lupus sent my arthritis off the deep end.  I still haven’t found any transportation around town when it’s too far to go by chair.  The cemetery is just too far.  And my cute little car that seemed like such a great idea on my 16th birthday is just way too small to fit my wheelchair even if you disassemble the whole darn thing.

Anyway, Etta suggested I post here about it since everyone in town is reading this anyway and see if anyone has a big van or something who would be willing to take me (and my wheelchair) to the funeral.  So if anyone is willing and able, please leave an note for me in the comments!

Thanks!

Feb 10, 2010 • First of all I want to thank Etta for inviting me to post here on this “blog.”  I think it’s wonderful what you young people are able to accomplish with computers and technology.  The kids at the library have been teaching me so much when I go in on volunteer days, and I tell Ida May about it and she just sort of chuckles at it all.  She has problems trying to set the degree of doneness on the toaster, so you can imagine what all this talk about weblogs and email and “Flickr” sounds like to her!

Anyway, I, for one, am at an utter loss about the Orosco woman. In case you haven’t heard, she was found dead outside her home yesterday. They say the cause of her demise was exposure. Now, while that’s simply a horrible way to pass on, it makes me wonder if we really aren’t the “Town that doesn’t care right.” Should we put more funding into the weather stations and libraries to educate people not to stay outside so long when the weather’s howling like it has been? Because that’s honestly the only thing I can think of that would prevent this sort of situation from happening. Obviously that poor woman was not educated about the cold.

I am sure you all know that I am on the board at the Library and we would be happy to discuss how to allocate funding to buy better books on meteorology and the like. Just say the word.
