I love my town.

.

You never know what’s going to turn up on my little town’s Facebook page. It could be relevant community news….

.

.

Or not.

.

.

Our UPS guy totally rocks. He leaves dog biscuits for all the canine residents whether they’re barking at him or not.

.

.

See? You can’t even give that stuff away.

.

.

If there are synchronized dancing peppers wearing sombreros? I’m totally going next week.

.

I love my town.

.

Headline news is a little different in my small Maine town.

.

.

Record breaking pepper? Someone call CNN!

.

.

While I do have experience in caretaking bossy, moody diva cats and I seriously love me some chickens… fish? They’re just too needy.

.

.

Momma Mia! That is one huge wasp domicile.

And finally, I saved the best for last.

.

.

I’m crossing my fingers and toes this idea becomes a reality… and shall donate accordingly.

.

.

I love my town.

.

This month someone is seeking a new home for their goats.

.

.

Nothing wrong with that… but the reason?

.

.

Now that’s a bit disturbing. If you have to re-home your goats because of rats? You might want to re-examine your current living conditions as well as your livestock’s.

.

.

Do you have a guy? We have a guy. I can’t tell you the name of our guy because then he would be your guy and wouldn’t have time to be ours.

.

.

Aww. I haven’t seen the lost pig, but if these people are really the owners…. shouldn’t they know the pig’s gender by now?

.

.

Okay, so not everyone is polite in our town.

.

.

Bunny! In all the years we’ve lived here we’ve never had a visiting bunny. And from the text of the announcement, it’s now abundantly clear why. We simply don’t have the right kind of weed.

.

.

I love my town…

.

You never know what serious news stories will be discussed on my town’s Facebook page. The economy? Yes. Climate change? Sure. But I live in Maine…. so likely as not? It will be this:

.

.

Bear poop beats the G-7 Summit any day.

.

.

The conversation got heated and had to be removed by admin. We take our poo identification seriously up here.

.

.

Now that’s my kind of neighbors.

.

.

Someone is selling peony blossoms for $3 a pop?

.

.

Woot!

I’m going to be rich.

.

.

I’ve read that the cost of rental cars had gone up, but $3,000 for a week?

That’s beyond insane.

.

Well done ladies.

.

In the continuing series Why does River keep posting this nonsense? I bring you the final squares of the centennial quilt.

.

.

No it hasn’t taken 100 years to complete, it’s just the time span being celebrated by our little town.

.

.

Does your town have yurts?

.

.

Mine does.

.

.

Hats off to creative women.

.

.

And their needles.

.

.

And now, what you’ve all been waiting for… ( or waiting to be over. Either way, you win) .. the completed quilt!

.

.

And may I just say, bravo.

This will hang proudly in our town hall so all can enjoy the fabric wrought history.

.

Our local.

.

This is the interior of our local pub.

.

.

Small, rustic and not at all fancy. But the food is fresh and tasty, the drinks are strong and cheap. What more could you want?

We’re regulars and feel good supporting a local business. Our town has never had a pub before so the owners had to fight long and hard for licensing as well as acceptance. Some of the older residents of our little hamlet thought a bar would attract a bad element, but this small establishment is just as likely to be serving lunch to a troop of Girl Scouts as they are the functioning alcoholics. Lawyers and fisherman. Bankers and construction workers. Hippies and veterans. You never who will sit on the neighboring stool.

We’ve met more locals here in the past 2 years than we have living in this town for 19. And it should come as no surprise that when we introduce ourselves and explain where we live? Everyone always says… oh, the big red barn with the nice porch. Sure!

And if you’re wondering just how rural my town can be? Take a look at who pulled up the other day…

.

.

🤣

.

I love my town

.

What passes for news in my little corner of the world might seem silly to some….

.

.

But I like to think of our Facebook page as the New York Times of happy living.

.

.

You’ll be glad to know this crisis was averted.

.

.

I’m not sure if this a thing in your area, but in Maine late spring means it’s time to thin and divide the perennials. Some people sell them in their front lawn, but more often than not the bounty is simply shared.

.

.

Go home Freyr. I don’t care how tasty the tuna is down the road.

.

.

That’s one fluffy little cock.

.

.

Damn. No one ever drops roosters off at our house.

🥴

.

I love my town.

.

Let’s check in with my little country town’s Facebook page shall we….

.

.

Mainers. We’re a practical people… and this does make a certain kind of sense.

.

.

I’ve heard of the Traveling Wilburys…. but the Traveling Pigeons? Wonder if the white one is lead guitar.

.

.

Alright, so some of us are woefully out of touch.

.

.

Sadly this was from our farming neighbor across the road. He’s had an honor system bucket for over a year now with no trouble, but I suppose it was bound to happen sometime.

.

.

The wonderful part is after posting that snarky news flash, the town felt so badly they rallied around his vegetable stand and he made more money that day than what was stolen. Small towns rock!

.

.

The latest square for the celebration quilt from our local ladies.

.

.

And finally, when you need to raise money in our town?

.

.

You auction pork.

🤣

.

I love my town.

.

Not much exciting was happening in our little burg this week.

.

.

It was a very mild winter and unfortunately we’re all apt to have lots of Johns. Wait…. that didn’t sound right.

.

.

John gets around.

.

.

Bad puns. They’re everywhere.

.

.

A brazen coyote? This is where my mind went….

.

.

That’s got to be a hard way to go.

.

.

With a name like Tofu, the odds are good she wasn’t eaten. Even hawks have to draw the line somewhere.
