Montville Town News

By Fran Gonzalez | May 02, 2014

Still has happened yet. My motivation to start cleaning the garden, get the go kart going, and clean out the carburetor on the motorcycle has not kicked in yet. Then there's cleaning the house, making piles for donation and for yard sale that is still only in the "pile" stage. I think we need a couple really warm days in a row for the motivation to begin in earnest.
