Thank you to the community of Quakertown. To all the churches that help the homeless when they call. For all the food pantries that feed the low income people in our community. Quakertown is a wonderful place to live. Our police keep us all safe and fire companies are there for us also. We have wonderful, caring people such as Kelle who has fed many people this past winter on her own.

To the fantastic family who bought my meal at Garden Buffet on July 3rd. Your kindness made my Saturday afternoon a Super Saturday! How blessed we are to have people such as you in our community. Thank you so much! “The Dude in the Lighted, Flashing Fedora”.

To all the neighborhood people who praise and those who gripe- where have you been? My weekly gossip has been bone dry for two weeks now! I need my funny threads back!

To the gentlemen who sat behind us at the Pennridge High School graduation on June 15th. I’ve never been seated near anyone so loud, rude, disrespectful and obnoxious. I was minutes away from letting you know how I felt about it when you thankfully left in the middle of the ceremony. Did they not teach you respect, honor and self control? From making fun of kids names as they were read, to talking loudly over all the speeches, to swearing, to making cross comments, it was an embarrassment to everyone who had to hear you. I’m sorry that you thought the class of 2021 ceremony was such a joke. It was my one and only child’s graduation and I would have like to have been able to hear it.

The 5th Grade class from Pfaff Elementary would like to thank the following fire companies: Milford Twp., Richland Twp., West End and School Resource Officer Hendrzak for making our graduation parade a huge success!

Thumbs Down

To people who waste police officers’ time over something they could’ve simply talked to their neighbor about. Police should only be called for emergencies, not for petty annoyances!

To the person who took a planter filled with chicks and hens from an Our Lady of Sacred Heart cemetery grave site that has been there for 10 years. For shame on you! How would you feel if someone took something from your loved one’s grave site?

people in the world!

Thank you to our dedicated, hard working postal carriers and mail couriers for working long and difficult days during the pandemic, even when it means delivering after sunset in the dark. You are appreciated!

To the person who pulled all the rocks out of the grass and placed them on the shoulder of Tollgate Road in front of Ridgeway Court.

Thumbs Down

To the person who is letting their dog poop all over the Liberty Bell School neighborhood in Coopersburg and not picking it up! Please pick up your dog’s waste. I find it incredibly rude that you would let your dog go on someone else’s yard and in the street, as I’ve seen in numerous places, and just leave it there for someone else to dispose of.

Thumbs Down

To the boroughs and townships who are developing precious land for commercial use when you have numerous empty buildings which can be used instead! Stop destroying land!

Thumbs Up

Thank you to all of our concerned and most helpful neighbors on Union Road, the very kind State Trooper and helpful firefighters assisting to get our runaway llamas back home! After a strong storm that came through our area, our neighbors found 15 llamas in the middle of Union Road. A stressful and frightening situation that was brought to a happy ending because of all of you. We are so appreciative and grateful and cannot thank all of you enough!

To the wonderful man who gave $10 towards my grocery order at Aldi just because I let him go ahead of me. Truly not necessary for such a simple gesture, but greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Thumbs Up

To all of the people planting trees! You know who you are. Our area has lost so many trees in the past few years. If your are not a tree planter, please consider planting some if you can. Thank you for what you are doing for
future generations.

To the voters who write in names on a ballot just because they can. Poll workers who have already worked 14 hours have to tabulate your foolish write-ins.

Thank you to our kind neighbors, you’re always so thoughtful and generous. I can’t believe it’s been a year since you moved in. So glad you did.

What happened to the sign on the Upper Bucks Rail Trail which was north of the Springfield Street bridge in Coopersburg? It was about rocks in the area being formed near the equator. The sign, which included a fossil print, was made by Lehigh University.

Thumbs Down

What’s with all the boulders and big planters in owners’ driveways and corners of their lots? That includes corners of highways in East Rockhill. People are very territorial! Don’t they know boulders don’t move? They cause injury or death. Loosen up people! You’re worse than jungle cats, etc.!!! Next you will be lifting your legs!

To whoever abandoned their domesticated duck with clipped wings in my neighborhood. I’m assuming you placed it within a fenced pond to keep it safe from predators, but a better bet would have been taking the time to find it a new owner.

Thumbs Down

To the residents of Coopersburg who park their cars in front of other peoples’ houses and don’t move them for weeks at a time. Have some consideration for your neighbors and park in front of your own house.

To children playing outside instead of playing video games. My wife and I love to hear the sound of children at play along with the birds and the breeze.

Thumbs Down

To whoever stole my 5-year old grandson’s scooter off my property on Perkasie Road on Thursday, May 13th. It was a Christmas present. Please return it or karma will get you back.

Wind chimes sound lovely and peaceful. Loud music and people screaming day in and day out on their trampoline or swimming pool does not! I too like to hear the wind in my trees and the birds in them. A little moderation would go a long way!

Thumbs Down

To the political candidate who continues to place unsolicited signs in my yard. There is a reason I keep removing them. Save your time and money and ask before placing a sign.

To those who do not enforce school bus safety rules. It’s a wonder the kids are the way they are today. No respect. Not learning consequences for their actions or bad behavior.

To the baseball coaches who are not playing Seniors. They deserve to play. You’re not being fair.

Thumbs Down

To neighbors who put up clanging wind chimes. We actually enjoy the sound of wind in the trees and birds singing.
