Fall has arrived. The leaves blanket the green lawns and the trees are about bare.
The workers have returned from Fryeburg Fair after a busy few weeks -- Beverly and Vince Stevens and Milton and Eleanor Inman. Many from this area attended the events and viewed the exhibits, the cattle and the horses. I did go over for Senior Citizen's Day and spent the night with Philip and Jeanne Whittemore and Elaine Lamb Blossom in their big camper, as I usually do. It rained so hard on Wednesday that I left about 1 p.m. Some concessions and events were closing. My two sisters-in-law, Jeanne and Elaine have attended this fair for twenty six years and have had the same camping area for the week for fifteen years.
