What a beautiful week, last week! Until Sunday that is! Sunday was cold and dismal.
My brother, Steve McLain, went to the post office to pick up the absentee ballots for the upcoming election in November. They come by certified mail and I knew I would not have a chance to get to Bethel to get them.
Sidney had her first hockey game last Saturday. They played against a stronger team with three strings of players against their only eight players. They did not do well, but they gave it their all!
Hugh and I attended a belated graduation party for Michele Croteau last Saturday at the Yokohama. Her parents, Leo and Ann Croteau, hosted the party. Besides Tim and the children, William, Annie, Ajay and Sidney, there were about twelve other friends and relatives present. This was the first chance that everyone could get together.
Lise McLain attended the Aging Well, Living Well Expo at the Grand Summit Hotel at Sunday River on Oct.4.
The Government Shutdown has arrived in Gilead! Looking across the road at the White Mountain National Forest Picnic Area, I noticed someone taking a picture of the building that houses the toilet facilities. This, of course peaked my interest in what was going on. Hugh and I walked over to check things out. There was a sign on the door that stated “This U.S. Department of Agriculture Forest Service facility is currently closed due to the lapse in federal government funding, and health and safety concerns resulting from our inability to perform daily maintenance. The facility will reopen once Congress restores funding.” Even the garbage can was covered. While we were standing there, there were several disappointed travelers who had stopped at the rest area.
