Cool summer weather continues. Every time I go out 219 to Route 26 at Trap Corner the traffic gets thicker. There is usually a wait for several cars. Many speed over the route to the village. The motorcycles are especially noisy. This quiet little town is no longer quiet. Several have colds and coughs. I even missed Church this week. We will all be better soon I'm sure. Hopefully this is my one cold for the whole winter. The house has been insulated and tightened up so I should be warmer without the old drafts. Also I am hoping the oil usage will be much less. I am planning to be here all winter unless my daughter, Wendy, succeeds in selling her house and needs mother to sew more drapes. Every time she moves I get to attend to the window decorations. She would like to get back to the East Coast and nearer home.
On Sunday, Oct. 3, the Rev. Richard Beal will conduct the service at 9 a.m. at the West Paris Universalist Church. Jim Burke is the organist. Coffee hour and conversation follows. All are welcome.
Leaves are beginning to color and brown. Some are falling. Muffin enjoys watching them and acts as though she would like to get out and chase them.
