North Norway news
NORTH NORWAY - Here we are facing Thanksgiving again. It is true that the older you get the faster the time goes by.
We have the outside work done, as much as we are going to and the bulbs are planted. We have help with these chores we used to do ourselves.
Don't know if Mr. Bear has gone into hibernation yet so Dell continues to take the feeders and suet in at night which is a nuisance. Not as bad as having to rebuild and replace them though. The birds seem hungry and are coming and going continuously during the day. The squirrels and blue jays have a pact. The jays knock corn out of the platform feeder onto the ground for the squirrels. I watch them do it. The turkeys are mostly hiding out from the hunters and we do not see them right now.
Rajah is upset with me. For some unknown reason she started to chew on the Christmas cactus this morning. I had to chastise her and she defied me and kept on chewing. So I snapped her nose with my thumb and finger. She is not used to being denied anything.
What was the big secret as to where they planned to put the casino? I do not understand the whole deal, nothing new as the whole world is beyond my understanding these days.
The catalogues keep coming in the mail. Free shipping. bonuses for spending money one does not have. No interest for 90 days etc. Desperate to unload the goods we do not need. Better to buy things we will need and store them, I say, as costs must surely go up in the near future. A word to the wise.
The AARP had a good program about a trip to England and the sights and sites they saw. Better than going there in person right now. The Marine Corps birthday was on November 10. We met in Portland on the 9th and the Marines gave the ladies a cake for dessert. The men had a program and another cake. We all had a good time as usual. Bill Nimitz from the Portland paper came and interviewed some of the Marine vets and his photographer took photos. Very charming men.
Joan Poland was transferred to Mercy Hospital in Portland to have the cement removed from her hip. She must heal and wait a few weeks before they can put in another total hip replacement. Hopefully she will be at home recuperating by the time you read this. She sure has been through a lot and we are all praying for her.
Kara and Six have flown back to Hawaii. Six was a very good boy for the whole trip and we all miss him a lot. By the time we see him again he will have changed so much. We are thankful we got to see him at four months old. His father will be back from Afghanistan next month for a spell before being redeployed.
One nice day recently, Dell decided to take me to Trader Joe's. Well, that wasn't the brightest idea we ever had. There was no place to park and the lines were long so we went to Whole Foods, then out to lunch and home again. A nice ride and we will wait a good while before we try again. Oh, we went to DiMillo's as it was a calm day and I wouldn't get seasick. They were having Lobster Week, lobster served every which way. We had a regular lobster, nothing fancy, and they are in the hard shell. There was no way I could crack mine with the nut cracker. The waitress put on gloves and shucked it for me while Dell struggled with his. Next time he said he is bringing his chain saw and a hammer. It was quite the tasty treat anyway and we worked the calories off getting to the crux of the matter.
Last Saturday night, Mary and Frank Perham hosted a birthday party for Jane Perham, who turned 32 again. she cannot seem to get past that age. Included in the party were Paula, Dana, Paul, Zach, Owen, Pauline, Sheila, Frank and Mary and of course Jane. Paula provided the lasagna supper, including salad and garlic and cheese bread. Mary provided chocolate cake and ice cream. They had a great time with lots of laughter. They provided Jane with all the info she will need to avoid bedbugs on her way west and other valuable info which she may or may not need,
Sunday morning Paula, Dana, Paul, Zach, Frank and Mary had breakfast at Crosstone's. They have a good breakfast crowd and a lot of people meet there every week. A good place to eat.
Remember when the tank was always full of gas and we weren't?
