Sincere condolences are being sent to the many family members and friends of Bea Bryant. I always enjoyed talking with her whenever I had a chance. She was a good and honest person. Rest in peace, Bea.

Triad will have its annual auction, Friday, Sept. 13, at the Tarratine Hall, Main Street, Belfast. Previewing will begin at 5 p.m. and the auction will begin at 5:45 p.m. Food will be available for purchase.

Happy birthday to Wyatt and Serenity.

I have been busy making pickles and relish. I can hardly wait for the pickles to be ready. I make the old-fashioned sour ones that my Grandmother always made. They are easy to make and oh, so good.

The Ladies Thorndike Fire Company Auxiliary met last week and we have another meeting planned for October. Anyone wishing to join the Auxiliary may contact me or any other member. We need some new members. Our numbers are getting smaller every year.

I have a newspaper clipping about the auto accident that claimed the life of Wilhelmina Tweedie. She was taken to the Bradbury Memorial Hospital in Belfast by one of her daughters on Sept. 28, 1936, after being hit by a car on Sept. 26, near her home in Thorndike, and died on Sept. 30, while in the hospital. She was my great-grandmother and the house she lived in was the Tweedie Hotel.

Abigail Van Buren is quoted as having said, "If you want children to keep their feet on the ground, put some responsibility on their shoulders."

Have a great week and enjoy the nice fall weather while we get ready for what's to come.
