I wish Mother Nature would make up her mind! I do not know whether to get my shorts on or wear my ski parka. What a roller coaster ride we have been on!

I got a message from Sullivan’s Waste that reads as follows:  All trash must be bagged and tied even if it is in a trash can. No bag may weigh over 40 pounds. If you have a can or tote that holds 120 pounds of trash, you will need to put three trash stickers on the bags. Do not put stickers on outside of the trash container. Syringes may be disposed of in capped containers, such as bleach bottles, laundry jugs, etc., and put in with regular trash. No mattresses, box springs, couches or chairs will be picked up roadside.  As to recycling, all cardboard must be broken down, dry and bundled. No loose cardboard will be picked up. All glass, tin and paper need to be separated. If you have any questions, please call Sullivan’s Waste at 948-2658.

Substitute teachers are needed at Regional School Unit 3 schools. If you are interested, please call the RSU 3 office and get the information on what you need to do.

Dustin has enjoyed visiting with some friends on the deck during some of the nice sunny days when the temperature was in the 50s.

My heartfelt condolences go out to the family and friends of Kayla Ingraham.

The Thorndike Town Office is now open on the second Saturday of each month between the hours of 8 a.m. and noon.

Dustin is back on the road again. He has been to the dentist, the recycling center, up to Troy General for bottle returns and back home via the Myrick Road. He had not left home in over 2 1/2 years. He is one happy guy.

Drew’s Hard Knox ATV Track on the Flat Road in Knox will be opening before we know it. I will be putting a schedule in this column.

I hope everyone got their heart’s desire for Valentine’s Day. Dustin has been wanting some homemade brownies for a few weeks now, and I think this would be a perfect time to bake.

If you have anything you would like put in this column, please contact me with the info and I will do my best.

A. A. Milne is quoted as saying, “It is more fun to talk with someone who doesn’t use long, difficult words but rather short, easy words like ‘what about lunch?’ “
