My thoughts of the week: Did you notice the roadside garbage has been cleaned up along Rte. 10 from Delhi down through Hamden? Our thanks to all those who put on their gloves and picked up all that winters dirty garbage. It would be nice if travelers would take their garbage home for disposal instead of throwing it out of their vehicle window. Anyway, it looks nice for awhile and thanks again for all those who care. Going out my door on Monday morning I found a big pail full of a variety of big, beautiful daffodils which were left by Don K. Don must have one big beautiful patch of these flowers. In the pail with the flowers was a note: Winter is Dead, now I hope he is right there, as we are all tired of the cold winter. This week they are back doing the final construction on the Fraser Bridge. Now going over that new paved road, I can’t help but think how nice it would be if the road all the way to Delhi and even to Walton had a new paved surface like that without all the potholes.

From the front page of a January 1931 American Agriculturist on Shrines of America. Lexington and Concord: as the British troops marched inland from Boston, the colonists, roused by Paul Revere, snatched what weapons they had, pitchfork or flintlock, hastened to arranged mobilizing points. Such a group had gathered on the green at Lexington when the Redcoats arrived. The organized fire of the soldiers dispersed the disorganized Patriots. When the British reached Concord Bridge however they found the colonists reassembled, better organized and ready to fight. A poet describing it, says of the skirmish “By the rude bridge that arched the flood, Their flag to April’s breeze unfurled, Here the embattled Farmers stood And fired the shot heard Round the World. The British were driven into a harassed retreat which lasted all the way back along the road to Boston.” The statue representing a minute man leaving his plow to fight stands at the head of Concord Bridge.

Lynn Kinch’s joke of the week: An elderly patient said to his doctor, “My leg aches all the time.” “That’s just old age,” the doctor replied. “Well,” the man said, “my other leg is exactly the same age and it feels fine.”

It’s great to have brothers and sisters because there’s always someone around to blame for starting the fights.

A cute saying: Roses are Red, Violets are Blue, But they don’t get around like the dandelions do.

Helpful Hint: When washing your children’s socks or putting them in the dryer, put one of those hair elastic bands around them as pairs, they will then be easy to match up the pairs when you take them out of the washer or dryer.
