NORTH NORWAY — Without my permission, this computer decided to do updates while I sat here gnashing my teeth. Spell check says that isn’t a word but I used it anyway. The computer and I have been at odds for some time and it appears it will have its way.
Because of one problem or other I have not written a column for awhile so have to think back. The six of us had a Mother’s Day lunch at Crosstones Restaurant, Frank, Mary, Pat, Charlie, Dell and I. They were very busy and the food was good. Mary was looking forward to a visit from Luke that afternoon. He is a scooter, getting around faster on his rump than he can crawl. Smiling and happy as can be. We visited Frank in his Mineral Museum to which he has added improvements since we last saw it. He has several groups who have made appointments to visit and it is well worth it.
Speaking of Frank Perham, he is at Attitash in Bartlett, NH this week attending the Sixth Annual International Pegmatite Symposium where he was a speaker Monday night. His subject by request was the Newry find, of ‘72-‘73. This weekend they move down to the Poland Spring Resort and will visit several local mines. By the time you read this it will all be in the past tense and I will be able to give you more details. Next year the symposium will be in Europe. Will Frank attend? We shall see.
Dana Morgan and crew have been roofing this week, working on the storage building in West Paris. Paula and Dana had their grandson, Kevin Jr. over the weekend and we got to see him on Sunday. He is walking now, albeit a bit unsteady at times and prone to going over backwards onto his bum but that doesn’t bother him a bit. Up he comes and on the go again. Oh to have just a bit of his energy. He has a prodigious appetite and eats everything put before him.
As you may have noticed, The Trolley House is being worked on and will soon be open again. John and Willow have a lot of experience in food service and hope you will come and partake of their menu and see what they have done. Willow is Tony Andrews' daughter and he has been helping as well of lots of others that I do not know of so cannot mention them. I know sister Pat, the grandmother has been cleaning this and that and John was found scouring the kitchen this week so everything should be sparkling and up to date. Do not know exactly when they will be open but it will be soon. We are anxiously awaiting the opening as I do not cook much anymore and we eat out a lot or get take-out.
Charlie says his peas are up and he is going to plant some more. Dell has planted our garden, several hills of cucumbers. We will probably put in a tomato plant or two and that will be our garden for this year. We do enjoy going to the Farmer’s Market and getting fresh produce.
My doings have been modest lately. We had a very interesting speaker at AARP. She told us about the part quilts played in the Underground Railroad, the directions hidden in the patterns and it was all very remarkable. We had our usual good buffet lunch at the Marine Corps get together. the wives are very congenial and we talk a lot. Our snowbirds are back and going up to the Casino where they have had very good luck so far. The book club met at the Norway Country Club and another nice luncheon after our discussion. We meet there again this month and you couldn’t find a nicer place or a more congenial kitchen crew and cook. Our June meeting will be held at the same place and the book for discussion is "The Kitchen House" by Kathleen Grissom. I obtained a copy from Books N things and am reading it now. I have missed several pool sessions but went back Wednesday with no apparent ill effects so here’s hoping.
Deven is holding a yard sale the same day as the seven mile yard sale on Crockett Ridge, June 8. Look for it.
This humidity has hit us like a ton of bricks. We are going out to lunch with Pat and Charlie, someplace air conditioned. First I complain about the cold, wet, rainy weather. Now I have a new complaint. God must get tired of my constant grousing.
My thought for this week: Aspire to inspire before you expire.
