Knox Town News
Hello Everyone !
I have been so busy I did not get my news on here to read early at all. I actually got to go to the movie theater twice this week. On Tuesday I took the Doughty kids and Cassidy to Waterville, and Wednesday the Doughty kids went to Belfast to the movies with me. Now that was a landmark trip for me as I had not been to the Colonial Theater in Belfast since I was a kid. I had never been to Waterville. As you can see I don't attend movies. I would rather watch them at home. Guess I'm considered an ole lady. Ole fashion as well. Oh yeah.
On Saturday Meredith Murch celebrated her 84th Birthday with a gathering at Tom's pond. There were twenty present, and everyone had a great time. Wishing you a belated Happy Birthday Meredith, and may you have many more.

Gabe got to see his old bus driver Leroy Trull today. He used to pick Gabe up on Bragdon Road in Montville. Leroy was an awesome person and made sure Gabe got dropped off here as well. Thanks !!
I got to visit with Tonja and the kids this week. I saw Annabelle, and she is now 4 months old. Time flies.
Until next week,
There is not much news to report. I guess everyone is busy. The farmers are haying in between the rain drops. It seemed good to get the humidity passed by, and better weather out there. We really needed the rain as it was real dry.
We are still searching for old photos of homesteads, and people from long ago. Keep us in mind for a copy of them. Call me with your news items. Our neighbors, and out of State family and friends love to read about what you are up to. Thank You !
