Friday is the day for Santa dancing with kids

RUMSEY -- It is with a sad heart that I have to spread the news of two of our community members that have passed away

RUMSEY — It is with a sad heart that I have to spread the news of two of our community members that have passed away. Irene Duncan’s funeral was held last Friday, Dec. 11 with a huge crowd in attendance to honor her full life and many contributions to the communities of Big Valley and Rumsey. Alex Ross passed away last week surrounded by his family, I haven’t heard when his funeral will be. Alex spent all his life in the Big Valley area helping many families with their water wells, drilling them, repairing them and generally knowing all about each and every one of them. His knowledge will be greatly missed along with the man himself. There have been too many funerals lately far and wide, I hope we will be able to hold onto our loved ones now.

The Rumsey Christmas Party with Santa will be held this Friday evening, Dec. 18 starting at 7 p.m. Remember to bring a gift for Santa to share with your little one, there will be elves in the kitchen to help make sure that the present gets to Santa in time. He will be busy dancing and celebrating Christmas with the children in the hall throughout the evening.

I would like to pass on that I have heard through the grapevine that Donna Sengaus and Judy Nelson are recovering nicely from having knee surgery recently. I am glad to hear you are doing well.

I hope you enjoy this funny little story that is so typical of little children:

A guy was packing for a business trip and his three year old daughter was having a wonderful time playing on the bed.

At one point she said, “Daddy, look at this,” and stuck out two of her fingers.

Trying to keep her entertained, he reached out and stuck her tiny fingers in his mouth and said, “Daddy’s gonna eat your fingers,” pretending to eat them and then went back to packing.

He looked up again and his daughter was standing on the bed staring at her fingers with a devastated look on her face.

He said, “What’s wrong, honey?”

She replied, “What happened to my boogie?

Have a great week.
