    Yes , that is the way that folks WayDownEast do it.
    They give their all to help.
      Though my beloved Washington County may be doing
     without in many ways , we always dig deep to help a friend or neighbor.
        I remember what grandad used to say: ” If it wasn’t for
    the hard times , we wouldnt have any times a’tall”.
       Gobble gobble !

    Less fortunate like the thieves who rented my house in Machias, stuck me for $8000 in rent as well as an empty oil tank and damage. I had given them CHARITY years earlier, and a cheap rent because, gosh, ‘they needed help’. They have LIHEAP, SNAF (?) Medicaid (to include mileage to Bangor for a specialist and a hotel room with DINNER as its overnight) and food stamps. Not to mention FOUR kids on ‘disability’, which is pure bucks.
    I do hate to seem jaded, but I’m done with ‘the poor’.

    Has anyone noted the obesity rate in Washington County? They have their problems, going hungry isn’t one of them.
