Dancing in the Lupines

Spring has definitely sprung around Mooseville, we might even be on the edge of summer. The roadside lupines are in full bloom right now and Mooseville couldn’t look more beautiful. Did you see the crazy fun clouds swirling around in last night’s sunset? Did you ever notice that the greatest pictures seem to happen when you left your camera at home?

Gardens are sprouting up all over the neighborhood – after last summer season’s wet sopping mess, I am surprised anyone is willing to try again. But, of course, I think we are all tempted by those colorful seed packages and the promise of little boxes of tomatoes seedlings. I did see my friend put in an extra row of Brussel sprouts, I think he is expecting me for dinner!

I wanted to send out a big Moostulations to all the students graduating this weekend! If you still need a gift for your favorite graduate, stop by and check out the new Mooseville store in Farmington.

One last thing…

As the mayor of Mooseville, one of my sworn duties is to remind all the Maine residents to vote next Tuesday, June 8th. Remember, you can’t complain about politics if you don’t vote! We will be voting about spending our money, taxes and choosing the Republican and Democratic candidates for the November governor’s race. So head down to your town office and cast your ballot.

The itch of black fly bites will continue for a bit longer and that trick about putting witch hazel on them does not seem to work at all for me. Any other ideas?

Have a great week everyone!

6/15/2010: A mayoral representative of Mooseville in Farmington is now awaiting departure from the West Farmington Post Office to proceed through Customs headed for Iraq along with some special fun goodies from the Farmington Mooseville store to meet some of the US Troops there. Mayor Bradey, being the wonderful emissary of goodwill that he is, hopes to bring a little fun and joy to our heroes in the heat there. Some small reminders with a moose perspective from back home may do the trick. I don’t think that black files are a problem for folks in Iraq, but I’d bet our troops there would love to go swimming if enough water could be had all at once in the same place for it. Lupines might grow there too. I understand that areas that do turn green there have already begun to change to brown as Spring wanes there.
I expect it’ll take about a week for Mayor Bradey’s rep to make his destination. Then probably within a week of that we’ll hear from him, and have something to post from him there.
