The way the weather was acting last week, it was uncertain whether it was winter or spring! The little chipmunk came out at the end of the week, but decided that it was still winter and went back under- ground for a few days when the snow and sleet arrived last Friday. By Sunday, he was out and about busily gathering seeds.
My brother, Steve McLain, was at the house last Saturday. Since I knew he was going to go down the North Road to stop at Brad and Carole’s house, I decided to make some No Bake Cookies for him to drop off. Brad likes those cookies and they were just a little extra way of saying thanks for keeping us plowed out this winter. Some days Carole did the plowing, but Brad stopped by to plow a couple of times in the early hours of the morning. It seems like we had a lot of snow this winter to plow and move around.
Mary Tyler was coming home from Bethel last week and had two moose walk out in front of her on Route 2. One of them was slightly bigger than the other, so they were possibly a cow and last year’s calf.
Mary also had some good news that she has had another poem published. She has already received the book in the mail the other day and her poem was the first one in the book. Congratulations to Mary for a job well done!
Lise McLain attended the Senior Citizens Club potluck dinner at the Methodist Church in Bethel last Wednesday, April 10. She mentioned that she previously had a chance to visit with Barbara Mahler at Ledgeview. Barbara, who is also a member of the Senior Citizens Club, has since returned home and attended the dinner, too.
Steve and Lise McLain want to send out Happy Birthday wishes to two of their grandchildren, Quinn (April 11) and Marina (April 19). Quinn and Marina are the children of Major Stephen McLain. Stephen and his wife, Peachy, and children, Marina, Nathan, Quinn and Evan, are living in the country of Norway.
While shopping for a birthday present for Marina, Lise was pleased to be able to purchase some 22 Karat gold items, which she says are unusual to find. She was in the antique store, Second Treasures, in Oxford and found a Martha Washington decorative plate and six Victorian decorative plates.
