NORTH NORWAY — Have been busy this morning places orders via the internet, my way of going shopping on Black Friday. I do not like the term black Friday and all too many of us go into the red on this day.
Are you getting all those “Robo" calls? Have decided we have to develop diabetes so we can qualify for all that “free” stuff they insist on offering us. Have told them we have various ailments but diabetes is not among them.
Asking them to stop calling is like spitting in the wind. At least we no longer have politicians calling, at least for a week or two.
Dell has returned from grocery shopping and he purchased a Megabucks ticket so next time I write we will be rich. It’s fun to dream.
We saw Joan and Phelps Poland in Market Square as we were having lunch one day. They appear to be holding their own, I am glad to say. We enjoyed Thanksgiving dinner at Bethel Inn with Peggy and Dana Kaas. The buffet was great and I had my annual glass of wine.
Made it last as long as possible. Seems as if one could enjoy the good things in life as one grows older but the reverse is true and most good things are forbidden. That must be so life will feel as if it is longer than it actually is.
It’s unbelievable but as we came back through West Paris yesterday evening they were sanding the road in places. The temperature was in the high forties. This morning they are sanding our street and it is above freezing.
Do the road officials receive a directive from the North Pole or what is going on? Sister Mary said that there has been several accidents she heard about on the scanner so that must be it. Am not sure the accidents are the result of poor road conditions so much as bad driving habits.
Dell’s brother, Glenn had to take a very comprehensive driving test to renew his license and we are happy to report he passed with flying colors. So far, lately, most of my driving consists of the back seat variety.
Mary, Frank, Pat and Charlie had Thanksgiving Day Dinner at Crosstone’s restaurant. They have three sizes of servings which many appreciate. I would have the large size and take home left-overs.
We have the family Thanksgiving Dinner at Mary and Frank’s on Sunday. We went up to Cooper’s the other day and bought apples and squash as we are taking an apple pie and squash to the fest. We also bought some local honey as honey is supposed to be helpful with allergies.
But the honey we have now from Argentina probably does nothing for us. We have decided to get everything we can locally, locally grown or produced that is.
The younger generation is so adventurous and daring I cannot believe their travels. We have a friend whose son is working in Mali, helping the people grow their own food with more modern methods. Another has a son hiking in Katmandu with Sherpa guides right now. Who would have thunk it.
Dell and I want to thank all those who expressed their condolences with cards and words on the loss of his youngest brother, Duane. Duane appreciated all that was done for him and we thank the staff at Market Square also. They were very caring, especially so at the end.
After the funeral at Andrew’s the children, family and friends met at Crosstone’s for lunch and a social time. Lots of stories were told and it left us with a good feeling above the sadness of it all. Pastor Lloyd Waterhouse conducted a very personal service as he had known Duane most of his life.
On that same day there was a reception for Dotty Perhan Farrar which was well attended. Congratulations Dotty.
We have become an automated society. Have you ever noticed that when the traffic light turns green it automatically activates the horn in the vehicle behind you.
