Late Afternoon Sun Pierces thru Tuesday's Cloud Cover Just
Minutes Before Sunset

On a night like tonight, when the temperatures are dropping to an anticipated low of 12-13 degrees, I find a sense of warmth and comfort from the wood-warmed home of Dean Chapman and his wife on Janes Avenue. This was formerly owned by Chuck and Jill Knitter and before that by Bill Burdick and his wife. I have many fond memories of a hot wood fire from the "retirement home" I built in 2000 but went the way of the Great Recession less than 10 years later. From the comfort of my recliner I can look directly over and see the early smoke of a new wood fire visually warming my view and making my own place seem all the more comfortable.

The bright side is that Dean is a very good man to have as both a neighbor and as a member of our total community because he has a very strong sense of community, community responsibility and caring, and a willingness to share his time and talents with us all for the betterment of the place in which we all live. Unfortunately, this is the third winter that Mr. Smart's unlicensed commercial vehicle sits parked right along side the west side of Janes Ave., partially blocking my view of the quaint ranch style of the Chapmans'.

In the past, other residents have been chastised for having unlicensed vehicles much smaller than this, but Mr. Smart who also parks a licensed camper on the property year round must have more of a universal charm than the nice neighborly charm and helpfulness he shows with me--his immediate neighbor to the west--and that, I guess, is much more valuable than cleaned up property . . . . Many words of thanks also to Chuck Knitter for mowing my lawn this past summer and to Bob Buza for cleaning up Ames Ave. Walkway which runs the length of my cottage and property. Thanks also to Paul Penner and Fred Schuknecht for all their help. Thanks also to Mr. Smart for snow-blowing my driveway following today's snow.
