Happy Halloween! The month of October has gone by without too many cold days. November is here and now it is time for the Nov. 5 Referendum Election.
My brother, Steve McLain, was pleased to see that his favorite baseball team, the Red Sox, had made it into the World Series.
On Oct. 20, Lise McLain attended her 45th class reunion at the Presentation of Mary Academy in Hudson, N.H. She is a 1968 graduate of the former Our Lady of the Mountains Academy in Gorham, N.H.
We had a couple of guests this past weekend. Our granddaughter, Sidney, spent Saturday night here at the house. She brought Chloe, their dog, along with her. Sid had to be in Gorham, N.H. at 9 a.m. on Sunday morning to meet with her ride to go to her hockey game in Nashua, N.H.
We have seen all sorts of little “critters” traveling through our yard this past summer. There was a gray fox family, some raccoons and this past week there was an opossum out there. They are not exactly cute and cuddly looking. I looked out the window and saw this white face staring back at me and the tail was long and looked like a rat’s tail.
I have a poinsettia that I have had for the past three or four years. It was beautiful the first year and continued to grow and look pretty but no red leaves or bracts. Last fall it decided to show its true colors and it turned a beautiful red that continued all through the summer. It looked as good as the new poinsettia from this past Christmas. As summer faded, both of them returned to green leaves. I brought them into the house and placed them in a southern window with bright sunlight all day. I looked at them the other day and they are both turning red again. I have had poinsettias in the past and could never get them to turn red or blossom for me, but these two seem to have some kind of competition going between them.
The Nov. 5 Referendum Election will be held at the Town Hall. The polls will open at 10 a.m. and remain open until 8 p.m. Anyone wishing to register to vote, at this point, must do so in person and show satisfactory proof of identity and residency to the Registrar.
