Sorry to hear about the passing of Aubrey Carter on Dec. 30 in the early morning at Machias Hospital. Condolences to his wife Jean and the rest of the family. Aubrey and Jean were the best neighbors when they lived on the hill in Wesley. I miss visiting them and having tea. He will be missed by all the friends and neighbors in Wesley.

Ruth Ann and Eric went to Falmouth to have a late Christmas brunch with family last weekend. They had a great time visiting both families.

Happy New Year! It does not seem possible that another year has arrived; hopefully this year will bring better health to my household. 

Well, we made it through the first blizzard in the new year with no power outage. Looks like we will continue to have the cold weather stay with us. There was no school on the fourth and then we had a two-hour delay on Friday, Jan. 5.

The road to Woodland on Friday evening with the Narraguagus Knights wasn’t great but we made it to and from without incident. Let’s just say I was glad to get back in my driveway that evening.

Cherryfield and Milbridge news

I was recently told about a heart-warming, miraculous story with a message about never giving up hope. It has been a three year journey for “Cinda”, Laura Merrill’s cat. She had been missing from her Milbridge home for three years and has now returned.

Merrill talked about the fall day when the cat went missing. “Cinda went outside with the other cats and she didn’t come back. I looked up and down the road. She might have gone in the woods. I called her for a week afterwards but never saw her again.”

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas.  The Peterson’s had a lovely one.

Welcome to 2018!  How many times will we mistakenly write 2017?  We will see.  2017 went out leaving us with frigid temperatures! Stay in and keep warm!

Happy belated birthday to Katrina Hatt.  Mike and Tracey Peterson are having cake and ice cream at their new home in Harrington.

Now that hunting season is over, deer, turkeys, and other wild creatures are frequenting the feeding stations thoughtful people set out for them.
