For the past few days the temperatures are acting like fall. Hot days but cold nights with, luckily, no frosts. These last few nights an extra blanket has been added to the bed. And even the flannel nightie has felt cozy.
On Sunday, Aug. 15, the Rev. Vaikko Allen will be the speaker at the West Sumner Universalist Church at 11 a.m. A coffee hour follows. All are welcome.
Elaine Lamb Blossom of North Branford, Conn., is with her sister, Jeanne Whittemore, in Norway and visiting family and friends in the area.
Cynthia Lamb entertained family Sunday: Jim and Chris Lamb, Matt Leach and family, and the Twitchell family. The water was good and most spent the time swimming. The young ones did not want to leave the water at all.
Two great-granddaughters celebrated birthdays on Sunday in Sabbattus at the home of Kyra and Gene Flaherty. Their daughter, Molly, turned 9 and cousin Emily Hyssong of South Portland turned 7. Entertainment for the children was swimming in the large pool. There has been enough sun to keep the pool water warm and comfortable. Attending were two great-grandmothers, Florence McLaughlin of Hungry Hollow and Joyce Lamb of West Paris, grandmother, Judy McLaughlin of Lamoine, and grandfather, Mike McLaughlin, and aunts and uncles and six cousins. At noon a barbecue was enjoyed by all followed by a chocolate cake for Molly and a white cake for Emily and plenty of ice cream for all. It was a happy, noisy crowd for the two dogs joined in.
Muffin was glad to stay at home where it was quiet and no dogs. She has been upset the past two weeks having three men around insulating the house. She does cuddle closer on the cold nights.
