The Cedar Mountain Easter Egg Hunt had an egg-cellent turnout from kids ages 13 to just 6 weeks old on Sunday, April 2nd. Over 1,000 treat-filled eggs were hidden at Studio276/Cedar Mountain Moonshine and kids lined up to fill their baskets! It was a beautiful afternoon to gather for a mountain tradition, take pictures with the Easter Bunny and hop around the yard games! Thank you to all of the volunteers and donations that make this event possible every year.

It was a little cool, but the rain held off until we had all finished our round. Even then it was just a little sprinkle. We had a great turnout: 20 women showed up for the opening day and we welcomed several new players. The game was a best-ball scramble on the front nine. The winning team was Mel Kassab, Sue Wojcik, Elaine Omann and Georgia Osterc. Join us for golf next Monday when we will play the back nine. Check in at 9:30. Shotgun start at 10.

AROUND THE HOUSE by Linda Packer Young

Florida Vacation conclusion

3-4-23 Saturday

My honey tried to hook the Jeep to the motor home without my help and wound up making a dent in the chrome and bumper on the front when the “Jeep wouldn’t stop”. I was cleaning up the kitchen when I heard a bang and the motor home shook. This is not a do it yourself thing.

Highlight of the day was losing and finding our tricky kitties.

Both were accounted for when we went for a walk around a small lake. On our return they were missing. Neither would come when called either. I opened the drawer that comes open (when the Infirmary is in motion) and they weren’t in there. So I opened the second drawer, Nozee popped out but no Buddy. I then opened the 3rd drawer and Buddy was “nesting” on top of my clothes. There is just room enough behind those drawers for the cats to go from one end to the other behind the drawers. We gotta get that latch fixed.


We received notice from the insurance company for the guy who hit our Infirmary (motor home) in Georgia. They decided he was not at fault since we happened to be next to him in his way when he tried to turn in front of us. I.e. our mere presence caused the accident. They denied our claim which is funny because we never filed one for the minimal damage the Infirmary sustained. I guess in Georgia if you hit a car, the driver of the other car is partially responsible simply for being there?
