I am in New York City today with an up- and- back flight. In the meantime, I thought that this “selfie” pic o’ from my Mom was right on point. And, everytime I look at it it makes me laugh.
Which brings me to The Luminary. You can also read it for some hometown feel at MuncyLuminary.com. The Paper has a section it calls Peeks of the Past. It’s one of the sections that I always try to read because it reminds me of history as well as some things that never change.
On December 21, 1885, the newspaper noted back then as news that Mrs. S.E. Snook, in an advertisment, calls the attention of the public to her stock of home made Christmas candles, especially clear toys and French mixtures.
Of course, a peek into the past also told us that on December 21, 1877, the hennery of DeLa Green was was visited by thieves Monday night. Mr Green hastened their departure by pistol shots from his bedroom window. Unfotunately, his aim was faulty.
In a 1905 edition of The Muncy Luminary, it was noted that Mat Blakeless of this place recently killed two fine hogs. The one dressed 525 pounds and the other 522. Who can beat this?
And finally, in the December 1917 edition, the community was made aware that William Opp was unfortunate enough on Wednesday to break his right arem when he was struck on the arm while cranking his auto.
There’s something about every day events making the news that grips me. Perhaps it is the reminder of routine that makes it interesting. The interest of life!
And for a Christmas pic o’
