Waldo Town News
By Tom Seymour
Isabel Morse Maresh has sent us another old-time Waldo photograph from the collection of Geneva Littlefield. Isabel says she borrowed the packet of negatives from Geneva and had them developed into prints. Isabel believes that Geneva told her that she had received the negatives from Hattie Blood, and also, that they may have come from the Keller House.
So there we have some background on the origins of these historic photos. We can look forward to more of the same, thanks to the thoughtfulness and dedication of Isabel Morse Maresh. Many thanks, Isabel.
By the way, I wonder what kind of mileage Roger got with his cart? We’d have to compute that in miles per bale of hay, I suppose.
Since no one has figured out where the “Where’s It?” photo from two weeks ago was taken, I’ll tell you now. The headstone of Waldo’s Revolutionary War soldier sits in the Whitcomb Cemetery on Birches Road, near the Route 137 end.
I’m pleased to announce that I am again writing my old home and garden column, the same one that ran for some years in newspapers of Courier Publications, including the Republican Journal. As before, it will be called, "From the Ground Up."
My column will include lots of home and garden advice, plus a tip of the week. It will run on alternate weeks. I look forward to this with great enthusiasm. That column was one of my favorites, and it was a pleasure to write. So get ready for some gardening talk, lots of fun stuff, plus handy helps for homeowners.
Ice fishing will probably be pretty good for the coming week. All the same, I look forward to spring and open-water fishing. For me, nothing beats a day on any of our picturesque little trout brooks.
