Happy New Year! 2013 is here and hopefully it was a safe and happy arrival.
My brother, Steve McLain, has been busy at work with the rest of the maintenance crew to make sure that all the SAD 44 buses are ready for the students to return to school on Jan. 2.
Hugh and I celebrated Christmas with Tim and Michele and the grandchildren, William, Annie, Ajay and Sidney. Michele’s parents, Leo and Ann Croteau from Berlin, N.H., were present also. Tim and Michele prepared a meal, as usual, and then we enjoyed watching the grandkids open their presents.
Lise McLain visited her father, Gerard Dupont, at Ledgeview on the way back from shopping in Auburn.
Last Saturday, Hugh and I met Tim and Michele’s parents, Leo and Ann, at Pizza Hut in Gorham to celebrate Michele’s birthday. Also present were all four of the grandchildren and Michele’s uncle Tom. After lunch, Michele served pieces of birthday cake and opened her presents.
Mary Tyler called last Saturday and said that she had seen a Starling at her feeder. Earlier that morning, I had noticed a black bird at our feeder, but could not get a good look at it. We decided that it was probably the same Starling and wondered why it was still around here.
Mary had her granddaughter, Starr Trefrey, as a visitor over the Christmas holiday.
Norm Buttrick and Cathy McGuire were in town over this past weekend. They stopped by the house on their way back from Gorham, N.H., on Saturday.
