New ‘Fridge’ to be Delivered, Home Owners Panic Stricken

To be delivered Friday to the Tanner home

Delivery scheduled Friday

Forestville’s Ted and Nancy Tanner purchased a new refrigerator and they are concerned about their children’s reaction to losing their current refrigerator. “This is the only refrigerator they have ever known. It is part of our family. Abbie is 10 and Timmy is 7 so I don’t know how they are going to react,” a cautious Nancy Tanner said.

The new refrigerator is a 33 inch Whirlpool and is ENERGY STAR qualified with an Accu-Chill management system and features a bottom freezer. Nancy is looking forward to the delivery of the new unit while her husband Ted could really care less.

Unsure of their children’s reaction the Tanners will have grief counselors and a comfort dog available for the kids to support them during this difficult time.

The unit is scheduled to be delivered Friday between 3 and 5PM.


Deavers’ 4th of July Celebration in Forestville

Deavers' 4th of July

Saturday was John and Barbara (Babs) Deavers annual 4th of July party.  The party had the usual assortment of cocktails, scrumptious hors d’oeuvres and an actual dinner menu! However, the highlight of the evening was not the food, or the Forestville Orchestra playing various patriotic songs, or the fashion show for charity or even the inspiring fireworks display, it was, by far, Barbara Deavers.  With her shoulder length hair and summer tan showing off her shapely leg, Babs was easily all the rage.

Moving quickly through Forestville’s various social classes that were in attendance, I sensed everyone had a spectacular time.  Those lucky enough to be there included Larson Canover, Maria Malvado, Solomon Weeks, Mitchell Luby, Dan Blazjowski, Rene Dubois, Zack Flanders, Trever Canby, Clovis and Kletis Denim, Virgilio Gonzales, Harley Pritchert, Mike Hill and Beth Hill, Ted and Nancy Tanner, Cookie Genison, Rob Halford, Betty Boukus, Howard and Phoebe Faris, Joe Kapperstein, Silas Minutia, Norbert Pendleton and Toby Jacks.

Smokey the Cat Injured

More problems for Forestville’s Tanner family.  Ted and Nancy Tanner’s youngest child Timmy yanked a limb to their Christmas tree causing the evergreen to fall on himself Saturday.  Timmy was not injured in the accident but the family cat Smokey was impaled by the star on top of the tree.  The cat was rushed to a local veterinarian, treated for his injuries and released after lunch.  According to Ted Tanner, Smokey is resting comfortably.

Smokey knocks down Christmas tree

Tragedy struck the home of Ted and Nancy Tanner early today (Friday) when their Christmas tree toppled over and landed on their two year old son Timmy.  Smokey, the Tanner’s curious cat, scaled the 8 foot pine shortly after breakfast causing the tree to fall on young Timmy, who was playing nearby.  The Tanners calmed Timmy’s frayed nerves, cleaned up the debris and banished Smokey from the family room.

Location of purchased Christmas tree

Much to the delight of their children Tom, Laura and Timmy, the home of Ted and Nancy Tanner is now bustling with the sights of the Christmas season.  Early Tuesday evening the Tanners put up a Christmas tree in their living room.

The evergreen, purchased Monday night from Red Shed Christmas Trees on Central Street, looks full and trimmed along the top and back.  However, due to their busy schedules, the Tanner’s can’t decorate the tree until Thursday night.  “I have to get the ornaments, lights, wreaths and garland from our basement and Ted…well, I’m not sure what Ted has to do but once he is done watching me go up and down the stairs with boxes full of Christmas supplies we will be ready,” said Mrs. Tanner.

The Tanners stated once the tree is decorated they will begin placing presents beneath its limbs.
