Hild, who just .passed away, was quite a gardener - both indoors and outdoors. Among his indoor plants were well-nursed poinsettias. After Christmas this past year, Phil Bertoni stopped in at Vonderlieth and gave Harry a poinsettia plant that had been part of the altar Christmas decoration at St. Thomas. Phil clearly instructed Harry on how to care for the plant - includ- ing keeping it watered. On a later visit, Harry cornered Phil about the poinsettia. Seems Phil never realized the poinsettia he'd given Harry was artificial. Well, out" first big snow of 2011 gave us an official 9-inches on the ground. Course there were drifts, that measured well over that 9- inches.
