That was a nice little storm. Easy clean-up, too. I will be bracing for the next one. I wrapped gifts while it snowed.

The Thorndike Town Office will be closed on Dec. 24 and 25 and also will close on Dec. 31 and Jan. 1, 2021. It is time for them to get ready for Santa and then to celebrate the ending of 2020 and the beginning of 2021. May this next year improve.

There are openings on the Thorndike Planning Board and also on the Budget Committee. If you are interested, please call the Thorndike Town Office at 568-3655.

The Thorndike Town Office staff wishes to thank all who contributed to their collection boxes for local children. It is very much appreciated.

I had a nice phone call from my old schoolmate, Donald Bagley. We discussed many things and also shared some laughs.

Papa Dixon visited with Dustin one day last week. As usual, the room echoed with laughter and they enjoyed some appetizers.

A reminder that the Unity Area Regional Recycling Center will be closed on Dec. 24, 25 and 26 and will also be closed on Dec. 31 and Jan. 1 and 2, 2021. Well-deserved breaks for the guys at the center. They do an awesome job there and are always very helpful.

I missed going to the gazebo, so I shoveled the ramp off and went in and enjoyed the warm sunshine inside.

President Ronald Reagan is quoted as saying, "Middle age is when you are faced with two temptations and you choose the one that will get you home at 9 o'clock."

I wish a merry Christmas to all and a very healthy and happy new year.
