Sometimes we take Rt. 5 from Lynchville all the way into Bethel to what is known as "Lover's Lane". Sometimes we drive up Route 5 from Lynchville then take a right onto Route 35 which becomes Vernon Street in Bethel. There used to be a sign in Bethel that indicated the end of Rt. 35. Yesterday we decided to take the Rt. 35/ Vernon Street path toward home and were surprised to see that, according to a new sign, both Rt. 5 and Rt. 35 are the "same" and they come out on "Lover's Lane". The signs indicating "Rt.35" are gone from both ends of the road.. as if it didn't exist. t. Does anyone know what's up with that? Who makes these changes and what necessitates them? I'm just wondering. I wonder what a GPS would say..... and for how long? How long will it take maps and atlases to "catch up" with the roads being renamed?
Speaking of roads and such, the Upton selectmen are undertaking the task of updating all the roads and right-of-ways and such for the 911 program. I don't know about the other two selectmen, but it's giving Bob a headache!
The first Sunday breakfast of the season begins this week-- the 17th of October... from 8-11am. I'll have a "special", but I don't know yet what it'll be.
I can't carry a tune in a bushel basket, but I'd rather listen to myself sing then hear the pack of coyotes I heard this morning at 5am... they're just plain eerie.
When Joe's and Penny's winter firewood got cut, split, and piled in their woodshed, Joe was working for Bancroft. He has his own suspicions of how the work got done... me, I believe it was the work of fairies! Maybe the ones who made shoes to help out the shoemaker and his wife had to find a new skill since most shoes are made in factories these days?
Obviously I don't know of much exciting news taking place in Upton... let me know if you have any.
Have a wonderful week. Selah
