Good morning, dear friends. Don’t worry, be happy!

This will be a short column this week as I am recovering from surgery on my eyes. I am sure many of you have noticed my red eyelids for many months, but were kind, and didn’t mention it. Last week I had surgery to correct it, and have been quite miserable ever since!

But I do have a little bit of news to share that needs to be in so you can know about it. Chili and Chowder Supper: The East Madison Historical Association will be celebrating Maine Restaurant Week by hosting a Chill and Chowder supper on Saturday, March 7, from 4:30 – 6 p.m., at the East Madison fire station, 1108 East Madison. My many thanks to Sue Lahti for sharing this news.

Would also like to thank Donna Bishop from the bottom of my heart for delivering The Town Lines for me last week! It was very much appreciated.

And now for Percy’s memoir taken from the book, Don’t Worry be Happy. Slow down. Cheer up! Life gets pretty hectic and unbalanced these days. Who doesn’t want to call: time-out from this fast-paced world of ours? Maybe the answer isn’t so complicated. Maybe it’s simply “Don’t Worry be happy – a message that pieces our cynical hearts.”

This is one of the statements in this little book…”In every life we have some trouble. But when you worry you make it DOUBLE!”


Responsible journalism is hard work!
It is also expensive!
