I love my town.

.

I suppose it shouldn’t surprise me that living in a rural town with numerous family farms, our local food bank would benefit from the bounty.

.

.

But the quality and quantity of selection in our little bank makes my heart burst with pride.

.

.

New Englanders have a reputation of being stand-off ish and cold but I’ve always known my Maine neighbors to be kind and generous of spirit, always willing to help their community.

.

.

Look at those full shelves.

.

.

And in case you’re worried about Fido and Fluffy?

.

.

We have an organization that feeds them as well.

❤️

And if that doesn’t put a smile on your face when thinking of my town, maybe this will.

.

.

Feeding seemed to work. And they were happily reunited with their owners before long.

.

.

Damn. So am I!

    Llama’s are nasty, ill-tempered beasts that bite and spit. We use them down here to keep the coyotes and two legged vermin away, and they do a very good job of it. What you want is a cuddly, good-tempered alpaca …

  2. Wow, you should be proud. That’s some awesome neighborly love right there. You all get the best animal stories though, pigs, peacocks, geese and foxes, dang. Even working in an agricultural university where livestock is the norm I don’t see that much wildlife, lol.

  3. My in-laws were instrumental in getting a food bank started at their church in NE Philly. That being said, yours looks like the healthiest, cleanest, and most organized food bank there ever could be. Kudos to them. And yes, who knows what might turn up on the properties up there!
