Goodbye, April

You know, I never had that much of an issue with April in the past. It’s a good month. It has 30 days. You know, pretty average, as months go. But damned if this wasn’t the coldest, wettest, snowiest April I can remember. I’m all done with April. Hello May!

Commuting in the Fog

Commuter Fog 1, originally uploaded by Big DumpTruck. Hey, 117 pals, did you all have fun checking out the fog this morning? I had my Powershot in the car with me, and whipped it out in Bolton Flats. Any time I had to stop, I snapped a picture. I uploaded the five best ones to […]

Let’s Pretend It’s Spring Break for a Moment

Oh, wait, it is! Man oh man, my fellow Leominster to points-east commuters must have had fun with the 117 portion of the commute like I did. I am guessing that the entire town of Lancaster will be completely under water by tomorrow morning. I wish to God I’d had my camera…the new lake behind […]

So This Is Why It’s So Expensive

There’s an article in today’s Telegram and Gazette that made me double check the date. Apparently Nestle Waters, the kind folks who deliver Poland Springs water right to my doorstep by the case, are looking at some aquifers in Clinton as a potential source for spring water. That’s right, I could be paying a premium […]

CelebriAnt Death Match

Okay, I know you’re all sick to death of ant posts. Well, maybe some of you aren’t. So if you are, I promise, the next post I write will be about something else. But this one is not. Mr. Dump called me with some very important information today. Apparently the ant supply company sent us […]
