Senior Slant with Irish Kemp
By: OCsue on March 7th, 2014
(March 7, 2014) Funky February is full of flaky foolishness, such as the know it all woodchuck, named Puxy, who predicted this long drawn out winter via his out again, in again, shadow. I always thought he was a very unreliable source.
This has been the longest six weeks of this old broad’s life. I’m all for Puxy going back into his hole and do a return engagement on a sunny day. Who, or is that whom, keeps the records on this little critter? Kinda’ looks as tho “the little” punk might be right this year. Buxy’s gonna’ have to go back to Pennsylvania and have a little talk with that critter.
Be that as it may, a large group of area seniors headed for the Casino at Ocean Downs. It was my understanding that some of them actually won on the Casino given stake, money. H’mm! Wouldn’t it be nice if the town furnished a bus at a minimal fee, of course. Afterward, the senior club participants made their way to the Sunset Grille to socialize and dine on the half price, delicious lunch.
Oh yeah folks, OC is de place to be. Rain or snow, there’s always some place to go around our big/little seaside town. Seek and ye’ shall find.

(Feb. 28, 2014) They say that you should not believe anything you read unless you’ve actually witnessed it with your very own eyes. When it comes to my weekly article be very, very wary of repeating any or everything that I put in this column. I’ve been known to fib, but only with the truth, I might add.
Having just celebrated a birthday last week, keep in mind that the old broad is not getting any younger. I’m at a time in my life that when somebody tells me about something I wrote, I believe them. The world has become a very confusing place since my “luv” took off for a better place, I know this sounds a wee bit “nonsinical,” but I was wondering if the automated external defibrillators (AED’s) that our church purchased are going to be used in the confessionals. Not to worry they will not be installed until volunteers are trained how to use them properly.
New in town and wanna be found? A little update on the Wednesday year-round 3-6 p.m. senior happy hour at Harpoon Hanna’s. A wonderful setting for the freshly retired and retirees to meet and greet their new neighbors. Keep in mind you don’t have to drink to dance or socialize. Harpoon’s Wednesday’s prime rib winter …

(Feb. 14, 2014) I’m back!! Thanks to the loving care of my family and all the wonderful folks around our little seaside city who have offered their condolences and have helped me get thru the loss of the love of my life, Skip.
It has been an unforgettable experience. Trust me folks, after 68 years of being married to this loving, wonderful guy, I’ll need all the help I can get from my family and friends. Many thanks to my family of eight for being at my side night and day. Many thanks also to St. Lukes’ pastor, Rev. Smith for the beautiful ceremony. Please keep us in your prayers.
Would you believe I’m at a loss for words, of course you wouldn’t.
How ‘bout this freezing cold weather? Not to worry, spring is just around the corner. So many people are heading south. Hate to break the bad news, but they’ve been inundated in Florida. Six outta seven days of heavy rain ain’t good especially if you’re on vacation.
Best to the birthday kids, the likes of Gerry Bowerman, Jeff Mathias, Jeanne Powell, Frank Hanna, Jane Mulholland, Jody Vaeder. Lux Luxenberger, remember the town’s tradition of celebrating every special occasion for at least 30 days.
Rumors are that February…
