Good evening. Hubby and I are lapsed Catholics. He is a cradle Catholic and I'm a convert. As you know,my mother-in-law is moving next week to independent living in southern Maine. She has attended the same parish in northern Maine for 89 years.She was married in the parish,all five kids were baptized,received first communion and were confirmed at that parish. Two daughters were married there. She and my father-in-law contributed not only financially but also years of time on parish council and other church ministries. My mother -in-law started a prayer shawl ministry several years ago and her group has knitted hundreds of shawls for the sick and elderly. She recently brought shawls to the church for the priest's blessing. She said,"Father,I'm moving soon,leaving this parish that I love. Are you going to miss me?" The priest said,"not really." Can you believe that a priest could be such an a**hole? My heart broke for her.

Jack,hubby and I were talking about all the drugged out rock stars and we concluded they must have good genes. :)

Ha,Dave. Hubby is a drummer (not playing currently) and Ginger is one of his heroes.

Very interesting Melinda @ 4:27,especially the mention of Irving. Hubby read it and said,this (Irving) all goes back to one of our current Senators who was a former governor. I don't think I can count the number of Irving gas stations/convenience stores in northern New England.

Good afternoon! It has been so rainy here that the stream is running really high for August.So,Maine has many pick-your-own strawberries,blueberries and apples signs along the back roads. Why not a pick-your- own hemp? A mid-coast organic farm is one of the few certified in the state to sell hemp. I'm so old I remember picking buckets of blueberries this time of year with my siblings. Ha. Hemp is the new blueberries. :)

Bela,you are in Massachusetts? What do you think about Joe Joe Joe running for Senate? The media is so predictable,going into a swoon over a Kennedy.

Good afternoon! Early this morning,hubby drove up north to attend his uncle's committal service. He uncle died earlier this year and his funeral mass was held while we were in Florida. Hubby just returned and told me it was a quiet graveside service and that the rain held off until the priest was done with prayers. He visited with his aunt and cousins at the reception held at the grange hall. It so happens that earlier this week,there was a double homicide down the road from his uncles's small farm. Law enforcement found two men in a pick-up shot and killed. Hubby said that the talk of the town is this crime and that everyone in town knows who the perp is,including law enforcement,who are tight-lipped. They are searching for the guy. I said,it involves drugs,right? Sure enough,that is the consensus of everyone in town,at least those attending his uncle's service. Crimes happen even in small towns with grange halls,a sad reality.

D,Holmes was involved in a fraud involving a medical device that was a total sham. She considering herself a female Steve Jobs and was able to con some important people to be on her board. Her trial is next summer. The daughter is continuing her trip and has sent us some great pictures.

Alex,both hubby and I recently read "Out for Blood" about Elizabeth Holmes. I think she's on my worst person ever list,bumping Hillary to #2.

Good Morning! The same day registrations in the NH college towns (Hanover and Durham) also affected the 2016 results. NH is a purple state now. The cranky Yankees are a dying breed. I have one surviving uncle who fits that label,he's a character.

Thanks for the Dale Jr. news. I have six degrees of separation because my brother works for a NASCAR engine shop. My cousin is a personal friend of Dale Jr. He was at the hospital with Dale Jr. after Sr.'s fatal crash. We have also driven on the Bristol track,it is like driving in a bowl.

Yes maryrose,tomorrow is the 42nd anniversary of Elvis' death. Speaking of conspiracy theories. :)

Here's a thought...many JOMers were kids when JFK was killed. Over 50 years later,the conspiracy theories persist. We won't be alive when history tells the true story of the Russian hoax,never mind the real story of Obama. If the real history is ever told. Our niece stopped here for lunch with her three daughters,including the month old baby. The older girls start school soon. (3rd grade and 1st grade) I don't know if their generation has a label yet? This sounds like such a cliche,but we really need to pray for the future generations.

Howie Carr is broadcasting his show from his Manchester affiliate. He said that when he did his show from Manchester where Trump held an election eve event there weren't protesters. He said "all the moonbats were at the liquor stores buying champagne for the inevitable Hillary win." Ha!

The fake Indian was in Franconia,so there were probably many out of staters at her event. If the number of out of state cars that hubby saw at Baxter yesterday is any indiction,then the NH White Mountains must be full of tourists. If you are familiar with Manchester,Elm St. is "Main St." The south end of Elm St. is probably blocked to traffic. There are already protesters near the venue. The NH DNC is encouraging people to "stand against hate" or something. *eyeroll*
Good afternoon! Hubby and a buddy hiked in Baxter State Park today. It is a gorgeous summer day here. Hubby told me that they talked to an Amish family with about half a dozen stair step kids. The mother had a baby in a backpack. She was waiting for her kids to pee in the woods. One of the kids told hubby,"our father is climbing that big mountain (Katahdin) with our big brothers." Hubby said they were sweet kids and friendly. Hubby said the parking lots were full of out of state license plates. I doubt the people on the trails were aware of any politics BS.
The Fredo thing is hilarious. I may have mentioned this,but hubby wanted to name the daughter Vicenza,because his Italian grandfather was named Vincent. I said no way is my daughter going to be nicknamed Vinnie. :)
Ha,I think Cuomo acted like Moe Green confronting the guy. "You SOB! Do you know who I am? I'm a CNN anchor!"
I'm here,I drove down to Bangor for an appointment and some retail therapy. :)
Yes,she went to China several years ago. I'm sure she'll be fine,but won't it be *awkward* for Americans visiting the mainland if/when China rolls in the tanks? Well,I'm sitting in the Maine woods,there isn't much I can control. :)
Good Morning! The daughter arrived in China at about 2am our time. I guess my mother's intuition or spidey sense caused me to toss and turn all night. Then I wake and read about the imminent invasion of Hong Kong. :(
Good afternoon! I guess it has been raining frogs here. :) I was washing the lunch dishes,looked out the window and hubby was hitting the side of the cabin with a stick. The dog was jumping all over it when the frog hit the ground. Never a dull moment.
