"never on Sunday"
A house has apparently burned to the ground in Ellsworth today, just past Doc Hayden's on the left, heading East on 4. I sure hope no one was hurt. My cousin from Lakeville, who's in Florida on vacation ( he's mooching off his mother-in-law), told me about it on facebook. He apparently reads the local news or perhaps sees it while away from off of the internet. My, times have changed. When I used to be able to afford to go to Florida (before my kids educations, alas we don't go now) the only thing I listened to or saw was good FM stations on my transistor radio (no ipods then) and would watch a little TV late in the evening, because the daytime was all filled up with sun and tourist stuff! You know, with all the Coppertone (with no SPF) we used to apply and before that baby oil, it's a miracle I have any skin left at all. I'd lay out there on Ft. Lauderdale beach from 9am till 6pm, for a week straight, with only a break for lunch or facilities. Could never do that now. Well, let me re-phrase. You could, but it might not be too good of a thing health-wise.......The Guts--> The front page of the Republican today's has an article on a proposal to have liquor stores open on Sunday's too, to help Hartford obtain more tax dollars. No concern over the owners health, or their families survival as a unit, or maybe a church life for some, if not many. Just have them open to get more revenues. My pledge to you I make today. I WILL NOT be open on Sundays, regardless of what my competitors may do. If you want to do business with me, which I will always welcome, please come Monday-Saturday. I will always do my best that I can for you, but Sunday's, I nor my help, will be there.
