Another week, another cake, another sink full of dishes to do.

The day I wrote this, Monday, March 26, is a perfect spring day. The sun is shining, it’s above 40, and the snow is melting. I will be so glad to see the end of winter. The snow might be on the ground come May.....and that’s a scary thought.

Sending good thoughts to Gilda McPhee. I didn’t know she had been in the hospital. It’s good to see her out walking. 

Kara Mitchell and I traveled to EMMC on Friday to visit with Dorothy Johnson. She has been very ill for about a month.  Today she arrived back home. Dottie’s nieces Linda and Donna are there to tend to her needs. Thinking of you, dear Dottie, and wishing the for the best.

Today I am remembering Maurice Marden, a former Calais resident and instructor at WCCC. Maurice passed away on Sunday after a short battle with pneumonia. Jim and I share grandchildren with the Mardens. Cooper, Ashley, and Shannon have bound our two families together for over 20 years. My deepest sympathy goes out to Marion, Craig, Jennifer, and Jay. A good man gone too early.

Eddie and Evelyn Noddin were in Bangor on Friday for medical appointments. 

Get well wishes go out to Carman Perkins who recently underwent heart surgery.

Susan McCray told me she had another good check up on Monday. She doesn’t have to go back to her doctor for another 6 months. 

Remember that Sunday is Easter. I hope you have a blessed day. The choir at the Second Baptist Church in Calais will be presenting their annual Easter Cantata Easter evening at 6. It’s a beautiful service and a wonderful way to end this Lenten season. 

Stay well and safe. Tell someone you love them.
