3/27, Hi everyone, hope everyone had a nice Easter Sunday. The weather sure has been wonderful, the sun has been shining bright and beautiful blue skies. Sonny, Penny and me went out on the porch this afternoon, it’s a bit unpleasant to sit there very long as the road dust is horrible. Plus the wind started feeling a bit colder and Sonny felt a bit of a chill from it. Each day he is feeling better!! Our Church service was well attended this morning and it seemed real gooood to have Cordy von Conta back playing the organ for us. She had taken a leave of absence during the cold months. There were many beautiful Spring flower to decorate the altar that were given in memory of loved ones. Once I was home from Church, Sonny had received a call from Veronica, and she and daughter Samantha, son Tyler Elkins and his son Zavi and girlfriend Sarah were on their way over. They all arrived safely for a short visit to visit Dad/Papa and then they were on their way. It has been a wonderful day and have heard from our five Children, wishing us a Happy Easter and sending Get Well wishes to their Dad.
3/7-23/, Maggie Elkins has returned home from Florida, where she went to visit her sister’s. Maggie was invited to come for two weeks with her sister Susie and Dick Ewins, and she also got to visit with Joanne Kane. They all enjoyed playing golf, getting together with other friends that were in Florida for a real great time. They also went out for dinners, shopping and having a hoot singing with their friends. You would just have to be there to enjoy our wonderful fun times.
3/23, Sonny came home from the hospital. He is doing well, obeying the Doctor’s orders . Also again he has enjoyed all the get well wishes and they continue to come, by cards or phone calls or nice visits. Thank-You!!!
3/25, Our son Frank and wife Karen came up from Derry, N.H. We had a nice dinner at noon time for them and then after spending time visiting, they had made arrangements with their daughter-in-law Kerri Lumbra and grandson Teddy to come down before they had to leave. Our little great grandson Teddy is growing like a weed, has 8 teeth already, standing and trying to walk, he will be one on May 30th. Before they left they got to say Hello to Penny, as she was just coming into town with the school children to be left off for the day.
3/25, Sally Newton has returned home after accompanying her daughter-in-law Martha Newton on a trip to China. They had a wonderful time and toured many-many tourist attractions. Sorry to hear that Sally came back with a bad cold. Once you feel better you can tell us more about your trip. Get better soon!!!
3/26, Jodi Walker and Stacey St.Onge had an Easter egg hunt Saturday afternoon for their children and a few other children from the neighborhood. The ladies hid large and small eggs on the St.Onge property next door to us. It was a fantastic time for all and everyone went home with baskets of goodies.
Note: The United Methodist Women have scheduled their Spring Rummage and Bake Sale for May 7, 8 a.m. – 2 p.m. and we are now accepting clean rummage during the month of April, preference Spring and Summer clothing. Leave on the Church steps at your convenience. Thank You!!

Wishing everyone a nice week,
The Hectorville Bridge Committee has postponed their meeting date. The new date is April 23rd.
Doug and Corine Clowes of Town have returned home after spending a wonderful week with their friends. It has been a yearly tradition for the two couples to sail around the Cape in Massachusetts. This year they broke the tradition and decided to charter a 38 foot sail boat as long as one of their friends has a Captains License, so they could explore the Virgin Islands. So they flew to Tortola and while waiting for their boat to arrive, they spent the day by the pool at the dock/ resort. Once they were off on their sailing trip, they visited many –many beautiful Island just to name a few, The Indians at Pelican Island; sailed into Deadman’s Bay, where blackbeard marooned 15 sailors with a bottle of rum; onto Marina Cay, visited Aragon’s Studios in Trellis Bay and we spent the evening at Pusser’s resort; to The Baths, a beautiful natural phenomenon and smugglers caves at Virgin Gorda then onto Jost Van Dyke over rough seas. It was a beautiful trip and so enjoyable in the sunny warm weather. We did some snorkeling at The Caves at Norman Island. Before returning we sailed around the southwestern tip of Tortola through the Sir Francis Drake channel and into Peter Island and spent the night at Peter Island Resort. Beautiful lights and Sea Turtles. This is only part of the wonderful scenes, and tours that we all had fun doing. If it sounds like we had a great time, We did and recommend it to anyone that likes the water!! ( Thanks Corine for sharing your trip)
Well, have I been on a trip this week but not a pleasant one, back and forth from home to St.Albans to visit my husband who was very sick, his appendix burst and the infection got into his body making him very sick. But as I write this Saturday night he is much better and started his liquid diet today and if he does well with that he will be on solid foods on Sunday, if all goes well MAYBE home on Monday. The nurses tell me he has been a model patient. AS long as I have been married to him, I have never heard any complaining from him, nor did he let me know about the pain he endured with this appendix. I want to take this space and thank everyone for their prayers, support and phone calls and Sonny has appreciated the cards, visits and phone calls and we sincerely THANK YOU!!! Update: Veronica, Penny and myself visited Dad/Sonny today 3/20 and they did not start him on solid food yet. ??? But the nurse has assured me that being so long without solid food and being so sick, it has to be a slow process for his stomach. Just have to have patience, something that is hard for me.
Happy Birthday to: Katie Brooks 3/31, Andy Elkins 4/1, Marty Lumbra 4/3, Lorraine Gillis 4/4.
(Spring begun today 3/20) ** Out side sign: “Landscape Now Open” Spring is here, I’m so excited I wet my plants.”** I ate 4 cans of alphabet soup and just took probably the biggest VOWEL movement ever**
I wish you all a HAPPY EASTER and God Bless us all.
