THE WEEKLY SMILE – Marilyn Armstrong

This week, our town was a smiling place!

We went to the Uxbridge Christmas Parade. It was a nice day, not nearly as cold as it will be tomorrow. It didn’t rain and it didn’t snow. And the ground was grassy and not all mud.

Chowing down

We took tons of pictures, so here’s another happy opportunity to show our little town when everyone looks happy.

How did they get all those people into that little van?

It was like living in a normal town, at least for Christmas.

  1. Normal town for a day? I think that Norman Rockwell version of a small town exists only in those paintings… Seriously, I do enjoy when there are special occasions in my small town (Wilton, NH). I’m glad you had a good day (sunny, but cold and windy) in town.


    1. I think all small towns are pretty weird. We get used to them and after a dozen years or so, you get used to all the weirdness. But everyone I know who lives in a small town seems to think it’s at best odd and at worse, VERY odd. Except for the people in Peachum, Vermont. They are suffering a surfeit of happiness … except for taxes and water, perhaps.

      1. Yes, all small towns have their quirks. I’ve been here for 25 years and have grown to knew quite a few of the local quirks and oddities. Of course I am sure many in town consider me one of the local quirks/oddities, but that is beside the point 😉


      1. I agree. I volunteered for over 10 years and was involved in many situations to raise money for fireworks and parades (even built one) and rode in a beautiful old car. It was rather exciting. The town loved it. So did we 🙂
