I started this blog, Another day in Catasauqua, March 25, 2010, so this blog will soon have a birthday, it will be one years old. I started it on a whim, I wanted something to do, perhaps earn a few bucks at it, an outlet for my emotions. I have written about the history of Catty. I went searching for the railroad tunnels and spring. My subjects have been all over the place. Several times I wrote about others in grief over their deaths.
Today I was reminded why I write this blog, to touch you, my reader, to be informative, and just to be me.
I received a letter today from someone who knew Skeeter Heist. I wrote about Skeeter a couple months ago, I was saddened by the fact that his obituary was so small, for a man who was so big in life. This gentlemen knew him when he lived in Baltimore, when he was sober for a long time and when he drumming again. This letter made me happy to see that for a while, albeit short, he was happy.
Yup, today I was reminded why I write this blog and that my friends, is another day in Catasauqua.
