I went to Millinocket today after chores, I have been going every other week to sell eggs, it was no problem to sell them all today, guess word is getting around now that I am back. It was a cold day, I brought a thermos of nice hot turkey vegatable soup with me, I hardly ever eat out. I was only there for a couple hours, I made sure I called the elderly couple to ask them if they wanted eggs, so when I got down to 6 doz left I packed up. I was sad to learn her husband passed away two days ago, he was such a nice guy, they have only been married for about 10 years. Neil was 89 years old and had a poor last 6 months, starting with a heart attack. As long as I have known him I never really knew his last name, he answered the phone with her last name, possibly he took her name.
This must be the week for people to pass away, there was a guy in Medway that I frequently bought unplained wood from for the barn. I have known him for over 25 years, such a happy person, loved his wood mill, and still sawed out wood at 85 years old.
I noticed on the way to Millinocket that the Amish apparently are going to dismantle the barn next door, sad to see it go.
Wondering what everyone does with all their spark goodie points, I am somewhat lax about remembering to give out spark goodies, but even if I gave them out daily I would spend a lifetime giving them out, I now have 221162 spark goodie points, I frequently spin and get anywhere from 50 to 1000 extra points, my sparkpoints are 225662. Guess I need to go on a spark goodie binge!
Calliope is stealing the show lately, she has taken to sleeping on the pellet stove, I noticed she was laying in front of it so I put a bed there for her, she likes to stare at the flames. But the last couple days she sleeps on top.
