Not much would stop Joan from something she had
planned. Not even a hurricane… tho snow and sleet
and chance of black ice the exception.
I had the pleasure of meeting and getting to know
Joan’s parents since if we were near Augusta,
we would stop in to at least say hello and visit a
On the way home, from trips that were south of
Augusta, after a visit with Joan’s parents, later,
just her mom, we would stop at Perry’s Nut
House in Belfast. Ralph would buy at least some
chocolate covered nuts, Joan and I would roam the store
looking for fun and odd things and laugh.

Today’s paving of the street in front of my house was much more orderly than one in back in the day…
many years past, but sticks firmly in the book of memories…
every year the street would have the crosswalk in front of the house painted,
just as school let out and then again the week before Labor Day.
One year, the crosswalk was painted in the spring
and I felt good that the kids could cross over to the playground, basketball courts safely for the summer.
(Drivers seemed more courteous back then, actually stopping for people waiting to use a crosswalk.☺.)
Then the NEXT DAY I heard what sounded to be a big truck in front of my house,
looked out and they were PAVING over the crosswalk painted the day before.
OF course, they had to come back and repaint the cross walk that had just been painted and then paved over !
Lack of communication…
Sigh. My tax dollars at work !
