This should be an interesting week for the Old Men of the Mountain.

As usual, these are a few notes from the Old Men of the Mountain who email or who this scribe speaks to over the phone. From those spoken to, they are beyond bored.

The week that this retroactive OMOTM report is being worked on has not been an April month.

What now? This scribe and his wife have been in the house for a few weeks; the column and my painting has kept me busy, and actually this scribe has bit off more than he can chew.

The Old Men of the Mountain did not meet again this week — only in thought.

This report will have just a few current comments and there are only a couple of email communiqués.

Number one, this is not a report on a breakfast gathering. As most know, the restaurants are closed except for those that can do takeouts.

The Old Men of the Mountain met Tuesday, March 10, at the Country Café in Schoharie. The OMOTM were a grumbling group Tuesday morning because of the time change.

At breakfast this past Wednesday morning, this scribe, just in conversation, said to his wife, “I guess I’d better go up and write the Old Men Column.”

Tuesday, Feb. 25, and already we can see the days getting longer, and the sun coming up a little earlier.
