The time has come, the walrus said, TO TALK OF MANY THINGS of shoes and ships and sealing wax of cabbages and kings by Sal Giarratani NORTH END'S 45TH ANNUAL CHRISTMAS PARADE Doesn't Christmas seem to arrive faster and faster these days? This year's 45t~ Annual North End Christmas Parade will be held on Sunday, December 13th at 1:00 pm and, as always, is sponsored by the North End Athletic Associa- tion. See Santa arrive at Puopolo Park by helicop- ter. In case of inclement weather, the rain date is December 20% SHERIFF BENNETT OFF AND RUNNING AGAIN I just picked up Doug Bennett's latest home- made piece of literature. He is off and running again against Suffolk County Sheriff Steve Tomp- kins. This will be BENNETT 0-TOMPKINS 3. So far, Tompkins keeps winning and Bennett keeps trying. Bennett's website for 2016 is www.Dou- Apparently, he is now Dougie, as in everyone's old friend Dougie. Don't forget, the election is Tuesday, November 8, 2016. Time flies much to fast when you are on the campaign trail. I am sure there will be much more homemade literature and wooden billboards to come. The election is, after all, nearly a year away. Assuming he is running in November, he must have decided to run as an Independent. Otherwise his next losing election would have been in September 2016. This doesn't matter much to me since I am with Sheriff Tompkins. NORTH END CHRISTMAS FUND LUNCHEON This year's North End Christmas Fund Luncheon to benefit North End fami- lies and elderly will be held on Thursday, December 17t~, at Filippo's Ristorante. For ticket information, call the Nazzaro Center at 617-643-8105. SALESIAN PASTA DINNER FUNDRAISER A GREAT SUCCESS The annual Pasta Dinner fundraiser for the Salesian Boys & Girls Club in Eastie was a huge success. The hall was overflowing with plenty of pasta and hungry mouths. The Ride is a great service for the disabled, but it is also a budget buster. Hikes seem reasonable to keep the whole program alive. There is no such thing as a free ride or a free lunch. Someone has to make up the shortfall in funds, and that some- one is all who ride the MBTA everyday to work. The government doesn't give away free stuff for nothing, does it? SUNDAY COMIC PAGE FAVORITES You know when I read the Sunday comics in the funny pages of my Globe and Herald, I miss two old favorites from my much younger days. However, while down in New Haven recently, I picked up the Hartford Courant and there to my surprise on the funny pages were BOTH "Shoe~ and "Blondie." I have missed that old bird news- paper editor and his typewriter and I missed Dagwood and Blondie, or should I say Blondie and Dagwood. After all, I have identified myself with Dagwood for a long, long time. DON'T FORGET THE ANNUAL QUINCY CHRISTMAS PARADE This year's annual Quincy Christmas Parade will be held on Sunday, November 29th, starting at 12:30 pm in Quincy Center by the Church of the Presidents. Last year's parade was held in balmy 60 degree temps. Can't guarantee those temps, but remember it is a parade worth seeing what- ever the temperature. Dress warm just in case. FINALLY ... Did you hear this one? There is a cha~nce that Governor Baker may appoint District Attorney Dan Conley to a judgeship. If this happens, Baker could appoint City Councilor Michael F. Flaherty to complete Conley's D.A. term. If that happens, the 5t~-place finisher in the at-large race could stay in his old city council office. Musical Chairs is a great game, isn't it? HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO DREW Shown with Father John Nazzaro (center) are L-R: Nicole MeCormack, Joe Bruno, and Stephen and Kathleen Seize. THEY LOVE THE POST-GAZETTE IN QUINCY I have introduced the Post-Gazette to many folks in Quincy, who now can't be without their latest copy. A big hello goes out to Betty and Pauline at Colonial Federal Savings Bank in Wollaston, and to Ray and Anna Zanelli. Ray's roots are from northern Italy. Up there, look out a window and you can hear French spoken. Down where my grandparents came from, you can see North Africa across the water. It is all Italy, but don't tell that to a Sicilian. SACRED HEART PARISH CHRISTMAS BAZZAR East Boston's Sacred Heart Parish Christmas Bazaar is on Saturday, November 21st in the downstairs church hall on Paris Street. It starts at 11:00 am with breakfast with Santa for the kids and goes until 6:00 pro. Check this out. THANKSGIVING DAY DINNER The East Boston Community Thanksgiving Dinner, hosted this year by State Rep. Adrian Madaro and family, will be held at the Sacred Heart Church Hall on Thanksgiving Day. Doors Open at 10:30 am. Dinner served from 11:00 am until 1:30 pm. THE RIDE MAY HIKE PRICE FOR VAN RIDE The MBTA is between a rock and a bus stop as it faces more deficits due to rising.costs. It says it could save $8 million annually by increasing fares for its door-to-door service for disabled pas- sengers from $3.00 to $4.20 per ride. Advocates for the disabled say a fare hike would severely limit travel for many of The Ride's users. (Photo by Danikka Moses} My little great-nephew, Drew Moses, just celebrated his 5 birthday in grand style by show- ing up at the Centre Street Firehouse in West Roxbury for a photo shoot wearing his firefighter outfit. With him was his little brother, Chase. Following the firehouse stop, everyone went over to the West Napoli pizza shop for his birthday party. Thanks to all the guys at the firehouse for making Drew's birthday so special and also to the owner of West Napoli for opening up his shop on a Sunday just for the party. kDAR0 FUNDRAISER AT SPINELLI'S State Rep. Adrian Madaro, D-East Boston, held a very successful event at Spinelli's in Day Square last week. The function room was mobbed and all had a great time. Shown in photo with Adrian (center) are L-R: former state Reps. Carlo Basile and Gus Serra.
