Hello All,

Another week toward Fall weather. Boy, it sure has changed, cooler now, and even turning on the furnace. Hate to have to turn on the heat just yet. But I gave in. The leaves are turning quickly, too. So many changes. Getting the bushes, smaller trees here all trimmed, mowing, making it better. A lot of work. 58 degrees as I type this up. We did get a little rain.

Newborn nearby

Congratulations to Desirae and Justin Serrano and big brothers, Adrian and Vincent, on the recent birth Sept. 5 of Eva Lynne Serrano. She entered this world a little earlier than expected, arriving at 12:05 a.m., weighing 4 lbs. 13 oz., and 17.71 inches. She was born at Maine Medical Center in Portland. As I am typing this, she is being discharged to come home. Happy for all the family. I have seen pictures on Facebook and she is just adorable.

Open in Thorndike

My Sister and I shop is open with hours of Tuesday through Saturday, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Gifts and more.

Apples nearby

Our road

It finally got patched and is not done yet, but what a great, nice difference in traveling on it. Next, hopefully, will be the culverts replaced, needs it badly. This road gets a lot of traffic through here.
