Voice of Freedom

I was just informed that Coach Shaw is up and walking around and has been transferred to rehab in Augusta. He is in Room 6. Soon he will be back home where he belongs. He is truly a walking miracle.

Drew Fales is still in rehab in Deer Isle and just as soon as I hear he is back home, I will let you all know.

Happy birthday to Scott Holmes, who will celebrate his special day with family on March 18, and also to Sallyann Hadyniak who shares the same day as Scott. Sallyann will be celebrating her 82nd birthday with the members of her family and that will include the birthdays of her grandsons Tyler and Kyle, who will turn 26 on March 21. We moved here when the boys were 3 weeks less than 4 years old. How quickly the years have gone by. Wishing you all many more happy and healthy birthdays.


Dave and Glen Bridges arrived back home last week from a two-month respite from Maine winter. They wrote: “We drove interstate highways for the most part from Maine to Florida, over to Arkansas, and back through Tennessee, Virginia, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Massachusetts, and home to Maine. If anyone wants to see the crumbling infrastructure of this marvelous country, just try to navigate the pothole-strewn interstate highways. They are a mess. Our little Prius took a severe beating but survived. One saving note on our interstate system: Maine's I-95/295 was the best of any we were on.”

Glad you had a safe trip and are back home once again. Thank you for sharing your two-month respite with us.

The first day of spring is March 20 and there will be a full moon on that day.

The thoughts of spring hold a special meaning for me. The boys were born and I thought, “a new life, a new beginning.” I love seeing the buds appear on the trees, and the flowers alongside the road changing from week to week. Everything seems to come alive. What a wonderful world of nature we live in!

Until next week, stay warm, stay safe, be kind to your neighbor and God Bless!
