School Vacation

The youngsters have had this week off from school. Gabe spent the week with me. He spent a couple hours with Gramp. The Doughty Family went to Myrtle Beach, S. C. David was so excited that he won the Easter Coloring Contest in his group at the Grand Resort. He won a prize, and had his picture taken with the big Easter Bunny. Way to go David, and he's only 8. They had a good trip.

Belated Birthday

Happy Belated 88th Birthday to Marguerite " Peggy " Larrabee. Hope you enjoyed your family gathering. May you have many more birthdays.


Tom Whitney called me and he has the same problem as I do, you can't be outside with your grandson and feel safe. He has a pitbull coming to his house. It is time our Town does something about these issues. Where do we go from here ? And just how come people don't register their dogs anyway when it is the Law that they do it .?


Happy Birthday to Kevin Wood on May 8th. To Katie Doughty on May 14th. And to April Norton on May 12th. May you all enjoy your day.

Birthday Missed Again

Happy Birthday to Tonja Doughty who had a birthday April 24th. Somehow I always manage to forget her birthday. I got to see my great granddaughter Annabelle who is nearly a month old. She is so tiny and cute. I saw the other little ones too.

In Jackson

The Country Mist Band will be at the Jackson Community Center this Saturday night too. 7:30- 11:30 pm.


I extend our condolences to the family of Malcolm Wentworth who passed away recently. Thinking of his family.

The Greenhouse is OPEN

Good news. The Half Moon Gardens Greenhouse is open. The Unity College has it back up and growing plants. They have Annuals, and house plants. Fresh Veggies, and greens.. Working on perennials.  Stop by and see them. Hours are Mon.-Fri. 9- 4:30 pm. Sat. until 4 pm. Sunday closed. I am glad to see it open again.


My friend Joyce told me that the Supper and Entertainment in Thorndike at the Town House was awesome. A lot of talented people did the music program and it was so good. Let's hope this is a regular scheduled time. It benefited the Fire Dept. The fire dept's. in our area are volunteer, so any support is a tremendous help. Thanks for attending.

Cast Iron Grille

A new restaurant has opened near Edward's. The hours are Tues.-Thurs. 11-8 pm Fri. and Sat. 11-9 pm Sun. 11-4 pm. Come check them out. They are inviting you to try out their menu.


David came Sat. night to spend the time with Gabe before he has to go home Sunday afternoon.

Until next week,

I hope everyone is getting over the colds, and flu bugs. It has been rainy, cloudy, and cold here. As I finish this column for now it looks dark and dismal outside. Take care everyone. I will be checking further into the Dogs running loose problem. And dogs getting licensed.


The boys and I were  pretty excited to see 8 deer, maybe more.  When  we stopped to look at them my wipers on the car made the usual scraping sound, and scared them off before I could get a good count. New wiper blades, and not worth a dime. The boys got to see them anyway.We love seeing the wild life. Turkeys galore around here. I am glad it is Spring Turkey hunting season already as there are turkeys all over crossing the roads. Good luck hunting.
