Hello All,

I am doing great at home. I ventured out today and drove to Unity for the first time since last January. It sure seemed odd to be driving again, but nice to know I am gaining in strength. So all in all I am blessed. There is always someone worse off than yourself.

My great-granddaughter Reagan Bingham, she is 6 months old now, is still having chemo. She had a good MRI, and chemo started on Monday, and she is home now. She still needs our prayers. Thanks!

Sympathy

Our condolences to the family of Joyce Bunker. Our condolences to the family of Dot Quimby as well. Thinking of both of these ladies' families, and they will be missed.

Birthdays

Happy birthday to my son's dad, and the kids' Grampy Linwood Doughty Sr. on April 16. Happy birthday to my sister Dawna Drew Routhier on April 17. May you both have a great day.

Ticks

I was told the ticks are out and some are very tiny. And the black flies are here, too. We always dread those things.

Until next week,

I hope people are doing OK. I had a COVID vaccine shot and will get another in a month. No reaction at all.

Just a sore place on my arm for a couple of days. I figure best to get a shot than not. This wearing masks is upsetting, but staying safer hopefully.

Stay well folks, and be safe. How about these much warmer temps!
