Autumn in the North Cemetery.

Sixty miles west of Boston, Massachusetts there is the small New England town of Sturbridge. Located at the junction of I-90 (The Mass Pike), and I-84 it has become known as the "Crossroads of New England". The town was first settled over 300 years ago, and like other small New England towns it has grown just enough over the years to be in a difficult place today. How do we embrace the future without forgetting how we got to our present? How do we attract the right kind of growth, and maintain who we are? And, what about our culture out here in Central Massachusetts?

These pages will cause one to think about how to protect what we have, our future direction, and how to move on in the very best way.

Those thoughts, and other ramblings, will hopefully inspire more thought, conversation, action, and occasionally a smile...

...seems to be working so far

New Kits on the Block

Last December I wrote about our wanting to adopt a kitten, and all the hoops one must jump through in order to do so nowadays. Today, I want to announce that after five months, we finally found two kittens at a farm in Spencer.

Two FREE kittens.

No strings attached.
No home inspections.
No contracts.
No promises not to de-claw, or de-tail, not that we would anyway.
No promises to update the shelter with the kittens medical records every year.
No promises to keep the kittens at the same address for the rest of their natural lives.
No promises to neuter.

They were free. And, most importantly, they are ours.

  1. Congratulations on your new kittenhood!

  2. Thank you! Maybe I should have said "we are theirs" instead of "they are ours". After all, they are cats...
