At last the hot weather is cooling off. The fan is again in the attic and maybe it can remain there for the rest of this year. This must have been the hottest summer ever. Cucumbers and string beans must be about done for this year. The tomatoes are still ripening and the flowers are going to seed to wait for next spring.
At the West Paris Unitarian Universalist on Sunday, Sept. 12, the Rev. Richard Beal will conduct the service. It will be the first Sunday service to start the new church year. A water ceremony will be held. Please bring a small bottle of water from a place you visited this past summer.
Peg Perham fell down her cellar stairs, the whole length, last Monday evening. Beverly and Vince Stevens took her to Stephens Memorial Hospital where the gash in her right knee required eleven stitches. After X-rays they returned home. In the morning the hospital called for her to go back for she had a collapsed, punctured lung, broken ribs, and a fractured left wrist. A drain was put into the lung cavity and a splint was applied for her wrist. She was admitted for four days and is now at home. Grandchildren spent the weekend with her. Her husband, Joseph, is in Ledgeview for a few days. Several are bringing in food for her and more of us, including the Cotton Tops, will not let her go hungry. She is her usual cheerful self. Hurry and get well and get back to the morning walks.
Ethelyn Turner spent a few days last week with her sister, Cynthia, at her camp in Locke Mills. On Tuesday cousins met at the camp for their yearly luncheon and good time. Those present were Marilyn and Jim Greenacre of Buxton, Ethelyn Turner of Paris, Joyce Lamb of West Paris, and hostess Cynthia Lamb. We got caught up an each other's families.
Cynthia Lamb spent the Holiday weekend with her daughter, Natalie Morse, in Oakland.
This week muffin got a bag of a cat Party Mix so now enjoys a bit of that about twice a day. When I grew up on a small village farm, our cats had milk and table scraps. Times have changed.
