Nothing like putting if off until the last minute, right..I do this myself. But have friends that help me out.and so on..

Interesting Item Post

I read on facebook that there were people looking for an escaped patagonia Mara, from the cavy family,like I guess a hare, jackrabbit creature. It was hopping around in Belmont. The game warden was trying to help locate it. Pictures were posted of it. Must have been a sight to see. It hails from Argentina. The owner did get it back. Kind of cold to be out enjoying the landscape. Certainly interesting read.

In Thorndike

Yes, Thorndike and Unity folks, at least some of them are trying to see who can be decorated for the Christmas Season in their Town. Merry and Bright in Thorndike Dec. 8th 5:30 PM. (Zoey and Penny ) friendly competition. In Unity the Historical Society event is Sunday Dec 3, 2017. 4:30 PM. I hope all gets decorated and a lot of fun for all. Bring the kiddos, Santa will be there.
