There was a wood bee at my house on Saturday. A big surprise. Fabiann and Alonzo Conlon first dug potatoes for their grandfather, Earl Allen. Aaron helped pick up the potatoes. Later, it was Ian Conlon with the family and Derek Millington and kids, Daphne and Aidan. They worked all the rest of the day hauling, cutting, splitting and piling wood for me. The kids had fun on the trampoline and four-wheelers. Keisha Sprague furnished lunch. On Sunday, Alonzo and Fabiann hauled some wood out for their grandpa Allen.
