What a Weekend
We sure have had a nice few days. It was rally chilly this morning but still opened the both doors when I got up. I got coffee then my blanket I use in the winter. HOME: Polly Dodge is home from Harbor Hill. She says she got great care.
I have a lot written down but probably won’t get to them all. In case you don’t get through all this. Come Saturday to Jackson Community Center from 2:00 to 6:00 for a Chicken BBQ, good music, then an ice cream or a hotdog. Admission is free but they’re accepting donations to help the Jackson Community Center with needed repairs and updates so it can be rented like it used to be. Remember when about every weekend it was used for one thing or another. I know they’d like to see that happening again.
Then there’s LeeAnn’s accident coming home from work at the pharmacy at EMMC. We are all thankful she wasn’t hurt any more when she rolled her little car (that she loved) trying to miss a porcupine she says Aunt Lucille was looking out for her. At least she was in Jackson so it didn’t take mom and Chris long to get to her and take her to EMMC to be checked over. Thanks to Peter, Marlene, Shane, and Eddie who were the 1st there and to Katie on the ambulance plus the rest of the crew and fire department.
They are about done, tomorrow, Sunday, is the championship with Japan and California. They try so hard and don’t like it when they pitch out, these are just kids. Then if a big kid gets a hit they put a smaller kid in to run for them. These kids live in dorms and have swimming pools, ping pong and other games. They have three meals a day all together. They use 24,000 hotdogs during the games. The team from Austria flew 35 hours to get to Williamsport PA to play ball.
I was surfing for a ballgame and there was Bangor Maine on the screen and Mansfield Stadium in smaller letters. They had last of it on ESPN and Panama and PA was playing. I don’t know who ended it. It started in 2002 and has turned in to a big thing each summer.
Juanita and Jack Macdonald from Arizona stopped by the Milk Room Farmstand to visit daughter Debbie. She and her daughter Michelle have gone today to their Warren family reunion. She was very proud to take her two granddaughters Ella and Madyson. Some of them had never seen Mady and it had been a while since they’d seen Ella. We grandparents are proud of our grand kids.
Ella and I went to Palmyra to visit Sister Shirley who has had a fall. WE took up a big basket of veggies from Robert. His onions are strong. She’ll use everything…eat, freeze or whatever. It won’t go to waste. Ella had fun swimming with cousins she had never met before. Nephew Robert tried to help her catch a kitten…no way Robert!
David and Joyce Pelletier are here from Wallagrass to visit AJ, Becca and Mady for the weekend. I took Rod Gray up and I don’t think he thought we’d ever see Route 7 again.
There are 71 cheese makers in Maine. Seems a lot of the Maine Cheese Companies makes 75,000 lbs. a year. It was interesting to see how it’s done.
Already in a school down South, no kids were hurt.
Chase Weaver had been to Camp Forest in South Brooks, a nice place. Chris went one hear too. They had a baby kitten didn’t they Chase.
My gosh are those fires terrible. Some fire fighters work 24 hours straight.
Are you done haying? Johnny told me he was and had over 300 large bales. Then I hear he’s mowed some 2nd crop. Del took equipment home form Polly’s today.
Was in the paper how vets retire with $38,000 a year, folks in Augusta get over $100,000 for retirement…. is that fair? The legislators in Washington DC must a good amount too.
Days are getting shorter. It’s feeling like Fall already.
Gotta end with baseball…folks be over soon. In San Francisco a home run in a certain place goes in the bay. There’s a feller out there in the bay with kayaks.
