SPECTATOR

Spring cleaning

Instead of having a yard sale, why not donate unused clothing and items to the thrift shop at the Marion Gerrish Community Center. The shop is open daily and all proceeds go back to support the historic center and its upkeep.

A sign at the center says it all: “Better than a yard sale, shop our thrift shop.”

Animal antics

A water-loving squirrel has been spotted in a Derry backyard pool on three occasions.

The rodent swims very well, according to the pool owner.

We can’t help but wonder whether she ought to invest in a teeny-tiny life preserver. See story, Page 5.

We ask: Why not?

A red Jeep, which looked average in every sense of the word, was seen on Interstate 93 over the weekend with this vanity play: YBNORML.

Network mogul in town?

A maroon Hummer was spotted south of the border with this plate: LIFETME.

We’re curious. Is the vehicle a once-in-a-lifetime purchase? Is the owner affiliated with the Lifetime TV network?

Meow mix

A Honda CR-V, strangely enough, not obviously shedding, clearly belongs to a feline fancier.

The cat-lover’s SUV bears the plate: MEOOWW.

Art in action

A warm summer day, a perfect setting — what better way to hone one’s artistic talents than to stop by a roadside farm to get the creative juices flowing.

An artist was seen one early morning this week stopping at the Healey Farm on Fremont Road in Chester to take in the bucolic view.

The man set up his easel and took a brush to paint his own interpretation of the sprawling farmhouse and field.

The farm has been a popular spot for roadside artists in the past.
