LOWELL / SYRINGA Did you know they have an advertisement this year for “hands free TV”? You can sit in your recliner, just say “Dr Phil”, and the TV will go on, and find Dr. Phil, and there you go! You don’t have to go to the trouble of picking up your remote and pressing a button, let alone actually stand up and press a button on the actual TV, nope those days are over. Life is getting easier, sure glad I’m still alive to see this wonderful invention. Soon I’ll just say, “Write my article for Free Press, be sure to spell everything properly”, and then I’ll just sit back and watch Dr. Phil about some 400-pound woman who never gets out of her chair and is depressed!
The EMT Christmas party/fund-raiser was the best ever. The neighbors came out of the woodwork to enjoy each other’s company for a good cause. Thanks goes out to the EMTs, the Ryans, Steve and Ann, and all the many, many folks who came and donated — thank you!
My grandchildren (five of them) all have their Christmas lists ready for Santa. Even the youngest Max, he’s 4. While he’s watching TV, he has a list and a pencil very close by.
Caught another pack rat in my shop ( my life is so exciting), but it looks different from the others! At least it isn’t a polecat and it doesn’t have a white stripe down the middle!
