What a week we have had with the heat. I can't imagine what it would feel like in this trailer without my air conditioners. Everyone be careful not to become dehydrated, especially the young and the elderly. Stay away from caffeinated drinks and energy drinks. Increase your intake of water and sports drinks like Gatorade or Powerade.


I hope everyone had a happy and safe Fourth of July. I am told that the Brooks parade was nice. F.C. Work and Sons had their fleet of trucks and machinery in the parade to honor their mother, Virginia. A wonderful tribute to a wonderful person.

Also in the parade were my two great-granddaughters, Madyson and Hannah, who rode on a float with their gymnastics group, XGTC from Unity. The Brian Menard family was also in the parade. The Brooks chicken barbecue was a huge success. The chicken was delicious as always, thanks to the Roberts family.


Lisa, LeeAnn and Brooke W. went to Machias and picked up Chris and went to the Fourth of July celebration in Eastport. The Navy ship the U.S.S. McFaul was docked there. They went onboard for a tour of the ship. Many of the sailors marched in the parade, along with the Shriners being in the parade, and many locals. There were several veterans who were in the parade. What a great day.

After leaving Eastport they headed back toward Machias, and found a nice lake and went for a swim. A great time was had by all.


Allyn and Chase spent a week in Florida with a friend of Allyn's. According to Robert, Allyn said the temperature was cooler in Florida than it was here in Maine.


Mady and Hannah along with their cousins, Parker and Haidyn, and their parents went to Storyland a couple of weekends ago. By looking at the adorable pictures on Facebook, they had a great time.


Congratulations to my great-niece Alyssa (Curtis) Samarripa and her husband Randy on their marriage. Welcome to the family, Randy. The pictures on Facebook were absolutely gorgeous. Best wishes to you both.


I would like to express my deepest sympathy to the family and friends of Tina Spaulding of Knox. I am so sorry for your loss. May she rest in peace.
