Well here we go again, got it all typed up and nearly finished and off to cyberspace somewhere, I'm not a happy camper right now having to do it twice. I hate this laptop.

Santa Is coming to town

Santa and Mrs. Claus will be at the Knox Town Office on Friday night, Dec. 7, for the children to come and visit. The evening starts at 5 p.m., with the tree-lighting at 5:30, and Santa arrives at 6.Come on out, there will be hot cocoa and snacks, as well as rides with Clayton and his horses.


Our thoughts and prayers are with Betty Seeley and her family of Belfast on the recent passing of her husband, George Seeley Sr. George was a dear friend. He was very active in the American Legion and, with the help of his wife, supported Special Olympics and a camp for blind children. He will be sadly missed by all who knew him.

Sympathy also to the family of John Klein of Troy who was killed in an automobile accident. Friends in town are thinking of you, Cindy and children. God bless you.

Get well

Get well wishes to my cousin Arthur Harris of Norwood, Mass., who just got home from Boston's Brigham and Women's Hospital, where he had surgery. Hope you are better soon.

Get well wishes to Jody Cushman of Searsmont, and Jan Cropley of Troy. Hope you all are well soon.

The five-generation picture of the Larrabee and Spaulding family that I sent in to be published accompanies this column. Remember, I have to submit a week ahead of time.

Happy birthday

Wishing my daughter-in-law, Laura Doughty, of Winslow a very happy birthday on Dec. 19. Also wishing Deborah Ziobhron of Old Town a happy birthday on Dec. 20. May you both have a good day.

I don't know for the life of me why I managed to lose my column as I was typing it, so very frustrating. Trying my best to submit something for you folks to read each week.
