---- — Holiday nutcracker

A caller on King Henry Drive in Londonderry found himself in a squirrelly situation recently.

Police received the unusual report that an “angry squirrel” had invaded, but left the scene before officers could respond.

A second call from the same home reported Ragin’ Rocky had returned and was still hopping mad.

It took some doing, but the irate intruder was removed.

Black coffee anyone?

Or perhaps a cup of cocoa will help kick start the holiday season for some on Black Friday.

MaryAnn’s Diner in downtown Derry is ready to help. The popular breakfast and lunch spot will, once again, opens its doors extra early to those faithful shoppers looking for early morning bargains.

The restaurant opens at 2 a.m. Nov. 23. Yes, that’s a.m.

It’s beginning to look ...

The Derry Parks and Recreation crews started putting up holiday lights before Halloween in front of Veterans Hall on Broadway.

Now, a banner hangs on the Masonic Lodge, wishing people happy holidays. Local shops are all decked out for the season, too.

There haven’t been too many feathered turkeys spotted on display, but don’t overlook Thanksgiving. Make it more than the kickoff to the shopping season.

But why?

One local fowl apparently forgot why it was crossing the road and unable to answer the proverbial question.

Londonderry police received a call late Friday afternoon from Stonehenge Road for a report of a “chicken in the roadway.”

No word on whether the bird had any answers for the responding officer.
