Friday Flags in Thomaston CT with a ConcertI had to dop some documents off to a lawyer in Thomaston CT for a closing. I thought I heard singing on the way in and as I came out it was still there.I walked across the street to the gazebo on the center green in town and the voices were from the school children offering their songs but no audience, except myself.I stood and listened to them sing and applauded when they were done. I mentioned to the teacher that it was highly unusual to get a concert on the green at that time of day to which she responded that the kids have a curfew.As to put the icing on the cake, I looked to my right and on the other end of the circle, the flag was waving to me as if to say don't ignore us.And I didn't. A great way to start the week, with music a Friday Fl...

Tomorrow is Father's Day 2024 and it will be a good one.  It will start off with going to church, followed by going to lunch at a favorite restaurant with my wife.  Later tomorrow evening I will get to FaceTime with my oldest son, and gorgeous granddaughter.  It is not the same as being together, but it is the next best thing.I hope the rest of the fathers reading this blog get to spend their Father's Day 2024 in their own special way.  Enjoy it, and appreciate the blessings you are so fortunate to have.

Any Pond Will Do for a RestWill I am doing my rehab, I can't play golf as yet, but at the very least we take walks on the golf course, with a watchful eye for stray shots.  We stay pit f view and are respectful of the golfers when they take their shots. I also keep my chuckles to myself when their shots are a little off-line.On one fairway, after a particularly heavy storm activity where there would not normally have been any caught my eye.This male and female were in a storm pond, and he was very attentive to her. Must be mating season.There is a reservoir adjacent to the golf course and many areas where they can have more privacy and maybe even make a nest so she can lay her eggs.At the very least they were away from all the other birds and ducks and he could make his pitch.Any Pond W...

Friday Flags a State in Mourning for a Fallen Connecticut OfficerIt was a tough week for people in the state and especially police officers as they held services for one of their own.  Trooper First class Aaron Pelletier a father of 2 and a loving husband as well as a decorated state police officer was killed on I-84 by a drunk driver who then fled the scene.The services were Wednesday and there were representatives from police forces from all over the state, New England and even from the surround states.It ws a senseless loss of life and the driver was apprehended and is in custody and most likely will not be seeing freedom for quite some time. Friday Flags a State in Mourning for a Fallen Connecticut Officer

Where a Public Notice that is Seen by All in Prospect CTThere are advantages to living in a small town. Such is the case with Prospect, CT where the center of town is the junction of 2 state roads and long lights.The town hall sits just off the intersection with an expanse of green in front, very much visible from the roadway.I have seen as many as 12 signs on that expanse letting all know what is coming.It is also the location of political rallies in season as the candidates want to be visible.This one was just added, and I will seek out the schedule of artists as it is always an entertaining evening.Not your typical bulletin board, but very few in town can say they don't know what is happening. Where a Public Notice that is Seen by All in Prospect CT

Kathy Streib and Debe Maxwell are hosting this month's ActiveRain Challenge titled "Why Choose Me?"  This should be a simple challenge, but I have never felt comfortable talking about myself.  I have always felt that if you do an excellent job for your clients they will do the talking for you, and that is how I have build my business over the last 18 plus years.Since I feel that way, in submitting an entry into this challenge I could post several 5 Star Reviews I have received over the years, but instead I have decided to take advantage of another ActiveRain Challenge in 2013.  In 2013 long time ActiveRain Member, Debbie Reynolds, hosted an ActiveRain Challenged titled "Endorse a Fellow ActiveRain Member".  For this challenge we were asked to write a letter of recommendation for another...

Today is 2024 Memorial Day In Middletown, CT.  Memorial Day is a day our Country has set aside to honor the fallen men and women who have served in our Armed Forces, and put their lives on the line to ensure the freedoms we have.Memorial Day has also become a time where families get together for picnics and family fun.  Some may even attend a local parades or participate in one.  Whatever you do today I hope a part of the day is spent on reflecting upon the meaning of this day, and those who we honor.  For many today will involve traveling a fair distance to be with family and friends.  So my annual messages has become the one above, and hope today will be a day free of accidents and loss of lives.  I Hope Everyone Has A SafeAndEnjoyable 2024 Memorial Day!!!

A 2024 Memorial Day Story That Brings Closure to a FamilyI was going to post a blog this morning consistent with the thoughts of all on Memorial Day, to remember to honor those that gave their lives for freedom. As I do normally, I was having a cup of coffee to get the mind started and wanted to glance at the paper as well.Reading online has its advantages, and it also offered the title to an article that needed to be read.This is the story of Kenneth McKeeman, the service man on the left on the left in the photo, who lived in Waterbury, until the death f his parents and at 13 years old, moved to Brooklyn to live with his older brother. He enlisted in the Air Force and was part of a bomber crew that was shot down after a bomb run over the coast of France. The Germans gathered the remain...
