To The Daily Sun,
Well, now that spring has arrived and the snow is melting and the flowers blooming, I suppose we will also have the billboard signs across from beautiful Hesky park in Meredith, advertising what is available on Main Street. I would think that by now, everyone knows what is on Main Street and if not, just drive up there — or walk.
I notice that as I get older with each birthday, different changes happen to my body. I noticed some liver spots. Well actually a lot of liver spots! Now, if they could only come together, I would probably have a wonderful tan all over and in the winter, people would think I had been to an island. I have, but it's called Long Island and it is in Moultonborough.
I also notice my skin changes, sometimes I might get a little pimple or two but I don't worry about that because my wrinkles hide them. There are some advantages to getting old and one of them is getting old. I was dusting the shelves in my dining room and there is a wedding picture of me and my husband — or my husband and I, whichever you prefer — and I almost didn't recognize myself. How time does fly and believe me it does. So to all you "old folks" out there, God bless you. To the young ones out there, just come to the local hangout, listen to our stories and have a good laugh. Happy Easter to all.
