Holiday Hideout

GG’s holiday hideout is on the hill away from it all.

Even so, some things motivate me to get out and mingle here in Fawnskin.

Yesterday that meant joining neighbors for “pie day” down at the Fawnskin Post Office.

Art was seriously working to convince everyone that we need to install a pot belly stove and some chairs so people can continue the mingling down there.

At one time, locals used to gather at a few of the local restaurants for a chat over coffee.

I got 86’d from my former hang out but a few still gather there.

Down the street, other neighbors tend to have coffee and a meal too.

However, town has been really quiet–and I usually head over to the South Shore these days.

This week a vacationer stopped me on the highway to ask if there was any place to eat or spend money in our town!

The only places open?

Fawnskin Market and the Fawnskin Post Office!

Seems strange when people are up for the holidaze and local businesses stay closed–but what do I know.

Anyway, I hope you enjoyed the slideshow from “pie day.”

The big news? All the goods were gone by 3:00pm!

PS Just got a note that the annual Christmas Caroling is tonight. Be at Moose Lodge 2085 at 5:00pm and if you are hungry–burgers and beef dip night is tonight!

    Pie day? Had I known or been invited, Bear would have attended and provided one of his famous Picnic Basket pies.
    These are not easy to come by this time of the year,since there are so few picnicer’s this time of year. Summer pie day would be better. Filling is made of sandwiches, fruit, chicken and other things left behind. Oh well, perhaps the 4th of July. Merry Christmas

    LOL guess you missed the post about pie day. But a picnic basket might be better in summer or spring!
