R.I.P. Kenny

Although we had just a short time to know Ben and Cassandra's lovable dog, Kenny, he quickly became part of the family. On a Christmas visit from his Camp Lejeune base, Kenny visited Maine and enjoyed running in the open fields and woods with fellow canines Cookie and Rusty.

Sadly, Monday's snow storm and fierce winds brought with it a tragic event. It was mid-afternoon when Kenny started running and lost his way. He ended up on the thin ice of Kezar's middle bay, went in and despite tremendous efforts on his part, he was unable to return to shore.

The family would like to thank the Lovell Volunteer Fire Department for their courageous attempt to rescue Kenny. Mark Moulton, Rick Rhea, Scott Thomas, Tommie McKenzie, Jim Kiesman, Gene Spender, Eric Perkins and many others braved the bitter cold. We also want to acknowledge the assistance of Meryl Molloy, Sherri Bois and Dave and Judy Mills.

We will miss him dearly.

      Paula, Thanks! It was not easy but they want to get another dog soon. They had gotten Kenny at the local shelter.

        Don't weep because it is over; smile because it happened.

              Keeping Kenny and all of you in my thoughts. I have loved and lost dogs of my own. Hoping time will help you all heal, remember the good times and move on.

                Rosie's Lovell Village Restaurant

                One of television's most popular shows, Cheers, was about a local bar where everyone knew your name and you were always made to feel comfortable. In this part of western Maine, Rosie's Lovell Village Store, is the place to go for great food and to catch-up on local news. Heck, I often bring clients to Rosie's for lunch or a cup of coffee to show them that Lovell really is as nice as they heard.

                In the January issue of Down East magazine, one of our town's more familiar residents summarizes quite nicely why Rosie's is the place to go. Read his review here.

                If you are looking to get away from the urban rat race, the Lovell Village Store provides the perfect opportunity to operate your own country store. Click here for more detailed information on Rosie's.

                Lovell's First Snow

                Finally, Lovell's first meaningful snow of the winter season. We have been waiting a long time. The forecast was for a more significant amount and I think they did get a greater accumulation closer to the coast but the snow kept coming down here and the wind was blowing hard. It was fun to just hang around the house, however, it still isn't enough to do any cross-country skiing. Bring on the snow.

                Christmas Eve 2010

                In this spiritual time of year, is there anything more majestic than seeing snow-covered Mount Washington? No matter how many times I see it, it never fails to take my breath away! This is the view from North Conway on Christmas Eve 2010.

                Hoping that everyone has a very Merry Christmas!
