I love my town… chapter 4.

 

My town’s FB page keeps me up to date on all the important local happenings…

And some of the not so important ones as well.

 

 

There were a lot of takers for this next one…

I’m just hoping this wasn’t their mode of transportation.

Another lost pig made the news…

And he seemed pretty happy to stay that way.

Then there was a woman wondering if anyone was interested in a group she was getting together.

Singing bowls?

Clearly she attended one of those crazy adult education classes I’m always riffing about.

And finally there was this one, posted on the day Maine made cell phone usage while driving illegal.

Technically it’s not about my town, but funny all the same.

Goat horn foreheads should never be overlooked.

Thank you Google Images for providing my nightmare material for the foreseeable future.

For once, our small town’s Facebook page rose above the petty gossip and backstabbing and actually came in handy. Last night, along with the usual lost pig notices… there was a report of a dump truck flipping over, taking out a power line and closing the main road. This was helpful since my husband’s car had overheated and left him stranded on I-295. Knowing about the closure in advance saved me taking the out of the way detour.

Of course the page also had some other gems.

Rent a goat! There’s a start up sure to make a fortune.

Heck, they love to eat…

 

 

Are easy to transport….

 

 

And give great back massages.

 

 

How could you lose?

Then there was this:

Someone wants to cook pie for me?

That can’t be bad.

And finally, there was this heartfelt thank you note…

Moral of that story?

If you live in the country, always carry carrots and apples.

Okay, well….

There’s no correct amount of produce for that.

More blurbs from my town’s FB page that are too good not to share.

Lots of things were lost this month….

Along with Batman, there was the weekly pig escape.

Before moving here, I never knew errant pigs were such a problem.

And apparently sheep are as well.

Big white coffee tables.

Ya gotta love it.

This next one was amusing as well.

I’m not sure a bat circling your couch is a valid reason to call 911…. but I never saw the update, so maybe I’m wrong.

And finally, there was this….

Glad I wasn’t in town that day….

Thankfully our air was fish stink free.

 

 

I love my town.

Check out the Facebook group pages.

No matter how large or small your particular hamlet is, chances are someone, somewhere is administrating a page for it.

I haven’t had so much fun in years!

You’ll learn very quickly who the town gossips are, where to find a free 40 year old slightly faded recliner, which families have been feuding since 1923,  who stole the carrots off the honor system garden cart, the residents you should avoid at all costs, and where the best wild raspberries are found.

There are also important things like this:

That’s news you can use people!

 

 

Neighbors helping neighbors…

*Note to self- avoid the White Road*

Granted, if you live in the city you won’t have such interesting headlines.

But loose chickens can be a problem anywhere…
