Marilyn Hagerty: 2022 is fresh and new

Dear Dave,

The year 2022 is fresh and new. So I am writing this letter to you and all of our Grand Forks area friends keeping warm in Florida.

We know what you will be doing today — playing golf and hiking. Maybe some photography? Golfing?

You won’t be going to many hockey games or shoveling snow off the beaches. But then, to each his or her own.

Anything planned around here is tentative — it all depends on the weather, you know. And the presence of coronavirus continues to call for caution.

Bubble Bath Day

I can tell you that Saturday is National Bubble Bath Day. That’s according to one of the new calendars I have around my desk.

Here in Grand Forks, the kids are back in school.

The only holiday for them in January is Martin Luther King Jr. Day on Monday the 17th of the month. Then the Grand Forks Parks are planning a Blizzard Bash at the Ice Arena.

As you probably know, Dave, people around here enjoy bowling and curling. I heard somewhere that Andy Armacost, the president of UND, likes to play ping pong.

Troubled times

These are still troubled times with coronavirus still hanging over us. But there are UND hockey fan luncheons scheduled Jan. 5 at the Holiday Inn in Fargo. Another has been planned for Feb. 16 .

Time will tell. I guess we just keep moving on, take precautions and hope for the best.

Your friend, Marilyn
