We got just enough snow and rain to make traveling a little treacherous. There were a few accidents last week. Two of them were on the North Road and one was just below town in the construction area. Last Saturday, the construction crew was working and installing a guard rail.
My brother, Steve McLain, has been seeing some of the winter birds at their feeder this past week. He mentioned that the Chickadees fly around him when he goes outside. They do not seem to be afraid of anyone.
Steve and Lise McLain were guests at Brad McLain and Carole Mason’s for Thanksgiving Dinner. They also attended the Rotary Club breakfast this past weekend. They enjoyed the company of Brad McLain, Carole Mason and Ryan Seames while they were there.
Lise went to visit her father, Gerard Dupont, this past weekend and had to impart some bad news to him. His sister-in-law from Quebec City passed away a few days ago. She was 91 years old. Condolences go out to the family.
Hugh and I went out for Thanksgiving Dinner this year. We met Tim and Michele, along with Sidney and Ajay, at the Town and Country in Shelburne, N.H. Michele’s parents, Leo and Ann Croteau, joined us. We had a great time.
Hugh and I went to the craft fair at the Wilkin’s House in Waterford last Saturday. We saw Perry and Happy Chapman. They are members of the GHS and were here at Friends and Family Day last June. While they were helping the GHS, they were selling tickets for a beautiful quilt to raise money to benefit The City Brook Trail, A Project of the Friends of City Brook, South Waterford, Maine. When we got home, we got a call from Happy. Hugh had won the quilt! I can’t wait to bring it home and enjoy it.
Last Sunday, Hugh and I were catching up on some work for the GHS and had just got off the phone with Bob and Judy Bishop. We noticed a car pulling into the driveway. It was Bill and Gale Tout! They were staying at their condo at Sunday River for a couple of weeks during the Thanksgiving holiday. It was great to see them and catch up on their travels up and down the Mississippi and Tennessee rivers in their houseboat. They have seen a lot of birds and other wildlife. They are quite happy with their decision to live on a riverboat.
