Steve and Karen Grissinger attended the State College Spikes game on Saturday evening. After a short downpour, the game went on as scheduled. Karen, the big (?) sports fan, enjoyed the antics of Reggy, the Big Purple Party Dude, as much as the game.

Visitors on Wednesday evening were Mike, Chris and Kevin Pintozzi and Henry Lovett from Langhorne.

Get well wishes to Kenny Brown who was recently a patient in Chambersburg Hospital for minor surgery. Also visiting the hospital to check on Kenny was their farm kitten, "Lucky" (recently renamed Lucky), who hitched a ride. On the way home Saturday morning, Jean Brown stopped by the drug store. This stop was made several hours later after a stop at Burger King and the hospital waiting for Kenny to get discharged. When Jean exited the drug store, she found Kenny conversing with a gentleman who told him there was a kitten sitting on his back tire. Jean, thinking she didn't need another kitten, was sure it was from the drug store area. But Kenny recognized the kitten as their grey kitten from the farm and told her to check it for a white stripe down its foot. Sure enough, the white stripe verified it belonged on the farm, so Jean unwilling to leave it in Chambersburg, coaxed it from the back tire and put it in the Subaru for the ride back to the farm. Kenny and Lucky are both doing fine. Lucky, who somehow survived the trip to Chambersburg and all the traffic, is happy to be home.

There have been several rattlesnake sightings in Maddensville. Please tread carefully.
