February in Fawnskin | GG’s TOT

Fawnskin Cat House

GG should have know better than to talk about how she was enjoying the nice weather. A change seems to be upon us with snow and cold temperatures predicted.

This is one of the reasons we all try to get out when the weather is so nice.

Now, Snoop Sister Deb was a bit frisky the other morning when she told me the Party Perch had turned into a Cat House!

In case you are confused, she meant that I now have three felines visiting me regularly.

She was really in rare form, but what GG finds interesting is that many locals (mostly men) have suggested that Fawnskin open a gambling casino and brothel to help with the economy.

So, it seems to be permeating the brains of the locals a bit more than expected.


Outdoor cats are not too common in this area due to the numerous predators and I believe these three visitors were litter mates as they appear to about the same age and all have great personalities.

They also belong to different Fawnskin Folks.

Now, I personally prefer cats to be kept indoors or confined for a variety of reasons that include health, safety and environmental concerns.

Alaska Credit Union

Just a reminder that the Alaska Credit Union move is near. Starting on Monday, February 11th they will be servicing customers from the new Vons location.

Gone But Not Forgotten

GG has been around these parts for a while and so knows a lot of the ol’ timers.

Nancy Kennedy, a very active and feisty Big Bear senior and Doreen Wiggins, former owner of the Stargazers Inn, both passed away recently.

On the Fawnskin front, Steve (part of the fabulous Moose Lodge Yard Sale S&S duo) recently passed away unexpectedly.

Condolences go out to all family and friends. For more information, check local announcements in the Grizzly, KBHR and Moose Lodge 2085 community board.

Bald Eagle Count

Once again it is time for another bald eagle count. The US Forest Service us seeking volunteers to participate February 9, 2013 and March 9, 2013.

No experience is necessary and volunteers can participate in one or all of the counts. You will need to bring binoculars, a watch and dress warmly for the hour long census.

A brief orientation session will take place prior to the count to teach what to do and where to go for the individual counts.

Signing up in advance is not necessary, volunteers should simply show up at the designated time and location.

“Through this method,” U. S. Forest Service biologist Robin Eliason, “the agencies and land managers have learned a lot about which areas are important to eagles and how the populations are doing. But we can’t do it without a lot of volunteers, we need their eyes to help us look.”

Volunteers from Fawnskin or anywhere in the Big Bear Valley, should meet at 8:00 am at the Big Bear Discovery Center (41397 North Shore Drive in Fawnskin). For additional information contact Eliason by E-mail at [email protected] or by phone at (909) 382-2832.

NSIA Potluck

Once again it is time for the monthly NSIA Fawnskin Potluck.

It is sure to be a sweet event and will be held February 11, 2013 at the Old Miller School House.

Now you already know that GG doesn’t rate, and despite repeated requests, NSIA no longer sends me updates so I can’t give you any idea as to the speaker, etc. Use your influence to correct this grave error, will ya?

However, all Fawnskin residents are invited to bring a friend, a neighbor, house guest, and join in the fun.

Plan on arriving between 5:30pm and 6:00pm at the Old Miller School House located at 1178 Chickasaw Lane in Fawnskin.

That’s it for this week’s TOT. I’ll be chatting back at ‘cha on Tuesday.
