Drove past the old Walker farm the other day and was it a bucolic and pleasant sight: warm fields, changing leafs, grazing Herefords, the green, the gold, and the smell of new mown hay. Also, try driving up Whallons Bay Road some night during a new moon.
Went to the closing of the Sid Couchey show at the Willsboro Museum being hosted by the Gillillands. It was a grand time with Sid and Ruth chatting away and the recreation of the 70's-iconic menu of cheese fondue and fine wines, but, no plebian beer. Patty Paine was warning everyone to watch what they were saying around me. I was shocked; poor old me, being a fabricator. She was right, of course.
Item six from the imbecile Republican Fundraising letter asks, "Do you want the government to protect our marriage laws in the United States?" Hey, someone told me that the Demos are also sending out a fund raising letter that might be a rival to the Republicans. Someone send me a copy will you? There is no need to ignore stupidity whichever party is so schtoopinninski. There is something to be said for such efforts which are raising the social status of car, real estate salesmen and lawyers (not you Matt Looey, Charley, and David). Can't think of what it is!
Speaking of stupid stuff, some folk are trying to spread a story that our Town Supervisor and the Town Board delayed getting funding for the Essex sewer system for their own gain. What could that gain have been when no money was ever available, grant funds can only be acquired when work is begun, and no grant money was ever sent? This is certainly an example of someone not having the foggiest idea of how government beauracy works, which is ignore, ignore, ignore, forget, forget, forget, and then slow, slow, slow, and slower. "Concerned citizens" have arisen and it's not even the equinox or midnight.
Next week, look for a special on favorite recipes of famous Hollywood stars for toast, cooking frozen waffles, and "hot dogs ala microwave."
