A blog for all denizens, ex-pats, and wannabes of Fernnook
Hmmm...are the two events related somehow? ;)
This reminds me of the Daily where we lived there for 10 years. Everyday, on page two, there was a list of everyone who had been admitted to the hospital, what they were admitted for & their address. This was followed by a list of everyone who had been released, what they'd been in for & their address, with an occassional note about their limitations (i.e. Mrs. Agnes Leadbetter, age 95, was realeased today, after double knee replacement. Mrs. Leadbetter lives at ### Charles St. She will be confined to her wheelchair for at least a month. Those wishing to take her dinner should use the kitchen door, it will be unlocked). I was always screaming about this. Amazingly, the Mrs. Leadbetter's were apparently never robbed. And plenty of people took them dinners.
That would be a tad like our little town, but all the news passes over the back fence. We're a little out of the loop now that we don't attend the little corner church any more, but we get most of the "news" eventually.
I read the first book in the Mitford series (do you know it?) and I thought its simple town life and loving characters were too unbelievable. The whole scenario just didn't jive with my world. But I see it's true, at least in Laurie's Mayberry. Thanks for sharing your life with us. :~)
