Unusual Neighbor Spotted 
Mary & Wayne Neuburger who live off Snead, submitted this photo.  Close to their backyard by the large lake between the 9th and 18th fairway, they spotted a beaver nibbling a branch. They quickly took a photo before the special guy (or gal) slipped back to the undercover of the bush. Wildlife are defiantly part of the McNary neighborhood. If you capture a picture, please send us a copy to share to

My First Time
It was a warm summer night on a Monday around 9:30PM. The sun had set, the stars were out. I was dressed for the part and was feeling confident yet concerned. Nerves filled my body and I started to sweat in the late-night summer heat. Blood was flowing throughout my body knowing it could be any moment now. “Can I do this,” I asked myself. “I don’t want to be a letdown,” I thought. Suddenly, I hear my name called and I knew it was time. I close my eyes, take a deep breath, and mentally prepare myself. “You can do this. You can do this,” I encourage myself. I feel tingles in my body and anxious as I slowly walk closer and closer. My legs start to feel weak, and my heart begins to beat out of my chest. “This is it. This is my moment,” I thought. I get into position and lock eye contact. I’m in the zone and I’m ready to bring it home. I take one more deep breath as the pitcher throws the ball towards me and I swing as hard as I can. *CRACK* The bat makes contact with the ball and goes soaring over the left outfielder’s head and then over the fence. I sprint past first, run past second, jog beyond third, and then to home plate. That home run created three runs for us which put us ahead of the opposing team. As I ran to the dugout, I’m greeted by all my teammates and high fives. It was one of the best feelings you can have. I will never forget “my first time.”

“Once Upon A Time…”

By Mary Smith

I’ve had a love affair with books most of my life.  I just LOVE the feel of books as I gently (urgently) pluck one from a shelf at the nearest book store, or even from my own book shelves.  Caressing a book is  better than caressing a piece of jewelry—for me! 

So, I get emotional, but my love for books is in my DNA! My parents adored reading (including, first and foremost, the Bible, my Dad being a minister).  He was also a published author of poetry and other writings.  

Daddy’s love of adventure was reflected in the books he read, including Out of Africa, by Karen Blixen (416 pages, by the way).  My parents introduced me to wonderful books like The Swiss Family Robinson, by Johann David Wyss and Daddy Long Legs, author Jean Webster, to name a few. 

As a child, my sisters and I rode our bikes to the library every Saturday, filling our baskets with books to read during the week.  Additionally, my school library pointed me to biographies of people like Dolly Madison, Booker T. Washington, Betsy Ross and George Washington Carver, all compelling tales of people who lived long ago.

As a young adult, I admit I went through my “sleazy” stage, reading shallow/“sensational” type books (which I won’t name)…WHAT?  You’ve never read “those” kind of books?!  It was a stage, folks!

But, I don’t have time to waste on pithy books nowadays.  There are too many to read (so little time!)  So, here’s a (very) short list of books I’ve enjoyed in recent years, thanks to the Book Club at McNary Estates…

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society (Mary Ann Shaffer)
The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks (Rebecca Skloot)
Quiet (Susan Cain)
The Boys In The Boat (Daniel Brown)
The Tattooist of Auschwitz (Heather Morris)
Where the Crawdads Sing (Della Owens)
A Gentleman in Paris (Amor Towles)
Educated (Tara Westover)
The Nightingale (Kristen Hannah)
Pillars of the Earth (Ken Follett)

Watching TV gets old; social media is constant.  But, there’s a wonderful alternative—pick up a book (start with the above list); immerse yourself in something so worthy you might actually wonder why you wasted your time on “lesser” activities.  You’ll thank me (yes, I think you will)!

About time to prepare you for summertime reading.   Just trying to figure out which ones.    About a month ago, I was in the mood for some espionage, mystery, whodunnit type.   So I went prowling though my stash of paperbacks (or do we call them “soft cover” these days?) on my book shelves.   Love author Daniel Silva and his main character Gabriel Allon, but I’ve read nearly all those.   Found an unfamiliar title by David Baldacci – The Collectors – intro sounded interesting.    A few pages into the book I found some references to prior characters.   Hello Amazon.   It seems that The Collectors is the 2nd book in a series by Baldacci starting with The Camel Club.   Didn’t have that book, but picked up a copy at the Keizer Library. 
The Camel Club consists of 4 eccentric members and is led by a mysterious man named “Oliver Stone” (no, not the director).  “ Oliver” even has a tent outside the White House with a sign “Show me the truth”.     This group studies government actions trying to discover “the truth” and happens to witness a shocking murder and become involved in an astounding conspiracy.   They join forces with the Secret Service hopefully to avoid an ultimate war which could take place on American soil.  
The four Camel Club members are all interesting personalities.   One is a librarian at the Library of Congress – lots of interesting material there.     They continue through the other four books in the series.   #2 The Collectors; # 3 Stone Cold; #4 Divine Justice.     And I just started the 5th and last book Hell’s Corner involving an attempt on the life of the British Prime Minister.    The only problem is when dinnertime rolls around, and I’m at the climax.    Hello Uber Eats!  

By the way, have you been to the Keizer Library lately?   I hadn’t been there in a long time mainly because of Covid.   It has been enlarged and is well organized.   All their books are donated!     You can access the collection on their website.   I am clearing out all my books and donated 80.   Barbara at the Library will even provide boxes and pick them up.   Our son and wife have cleared out all their books and now read only on their IPads, but I like the feel of the pages. 

Any suggestions for summer reading?    August is still hot – hopefully not like last year.   See you then!    Ann Trombley
