Locke Mills June 24
The town is mourning the loss of one of its long time citizens, Charles (Chuck) Melville, this week. Chuck was a member of the Greenwood Fire Department and he was especially noted for his doughnuts. Many people got to sample them but probably the Fire Department got more than their fair share. We offer our sincerest sympathy to the members of his family. He will be remembered and missed.
Marcia Smith returned home last week after spending almost two weeks with her mother, Lorraine Larson. Sounds pretty formal doesn’t it? Anyhow, it was a short two weeks. She was supposed to meet her husband, Jon Smith, in Augusta where he had a seminar scheduled, and was going the rest of the way home with him but the meeting got canceled at the last minute, so Gerry Shimamura and I took her to the bus instead. Since we had already planned to go to Augusta we continued with our plans and met the bus there. We came back by the way of Lewiston so we could go in the pet store and Gerry bought a harness for her new pup, Oreo, a tiny black and white bundle of fluff, who is half Pomeranian and half that unspellable name of Shi-tzue, or some such thing. I got Chloe a harness, too, which she is not too impressed with. The first time I put it on her she managed to get a paw up under the breast strap and promptly went on her face and I had to rescue her. I wanted it because she pulls so on her run that her throat gets sore but I can see that I can only use it when I am home to supervise her.
It is nice and warm today following our two days of rain showers. The weather people are saying we will be getting some hot weather this coming week. Just in time for my church’s move into the Conference Center of the Linnell Motel. We are going to be there just for the summer to see how it goes, but we are really cramped where we are and haven’t found anything yet to buy. The Lord Family will start us off Memorial weekend and we always look forward to them. Hopefully people that haven’t had a chance to hear them will where we are more easily accessible there on Route 2.
