The family celebrates their birthday with a drive-by party. I hope everyone is as healthy and happy as possible. I know these difficult and frustrating times can cause even the cutest people to be grumpy, so take about three seconds before being rude to employees in grocery stores, pharmacies, restaurants and elsewhere. It is not their fault that we are in the situations in which we find ourselves.
They are trying to keep us fed, to get us the drugs we need, and to make sure our homes are up and running. Nobody wants the way of life we are living. It is as it is. If you are old enough, think about a time when we could go to airports, amusement parks and sporting events without having to go through metal detectors or have your bags checked. We complained for a while and then we simply accepted it as a new normal. We still have so many things to be thankful for. I want you to think of one thing every day to see if it helps turn a negative attitude into a positive one. I know I have to do it alone many days. Sunday morning, I took a very short walk to my parents' house. I could hear the birds singing, the wind rustling the leaves slightly and no other sound anywhere. I took a picture of my peaceful environment. It was one of those moments when you like to dip everything inside. A few hours later, the fun started when we got ready for my granddaughter's first birthday, Emersyn. The house got crowded and the laughter and excitement continued for a good deal of the day. To maintain state guidelines, we organized a birthday party in the car. The first table had party favors, and the second place was for Emersyn, the gifts and her kisses that blew and greeted everyone. Table three was for cupcakes and pantries. Everything was done with as few contacts as possible and maximum imaginable fun. Our 1 year old was happy and enjoyed every minute until she got on the seat to go home and slept soundly. Sure, it was a little more work, but it was worth every moment. Emersyn hasn't made an easy entrance into the world and has done things his way ever since. He is happy, almost walks, says a few words and absolutely loves to explore. If you are 1 or 101 years old, take the time to explore. It could be digging in the mud, reading an article in a magazine or newspaper about something you didn't know, taking a ride along a road you've never traveled, listening to someone talking about something you've never known before, playing a game board with your grandchildren or children through FaceTime or taking a virtual tour. Just take the time. The mayor and council issued special provisions to allow Boonsboro to conduct municipal elections on Tuesday 9 June.

Currently, the Legion is open for outdoor seating under the pavilion from Monday to Thursday, 17 to 21. and from Friday to Sunday from noon to 22:00. Transfers are available during these hours. The Legion requires patience as it adjusts to the slow openings. The Flag Day is Sunday June 14th. Under normal circumstances, there would be a ceremony to dispose of the torn or damaged flag, but this year will not be held. Instead, tattered flags can be deposited in a box in the Legion's lobby for later disposal. Lobby hours vary depending on when someone is in the building. Mark McGlaughlin, a member of the Sons of the American Legion, memorized the flag with words: "The flag of our nation, a flag under God. We will always be proud of our flag, stand up with your hand on your heart, as we honor red, white and blue. Red is for courage – bloodshed in sacrifice. White is for freedom – the purity of freedom. Blue is for justice – as vast as the sky. "Boonsboro American Legion Post 10 is at 710 N.

Swarm is the natural means of reproduction of honey bee colonies: bees are remarkably docile during the swarm process and almost never sting. Please do not spray bees with pesticides or attempt to harm them in any way. They are precious pollinators and are necessary for our food supply. Many local beekeepers will remove the swarm for free and give the bees a good home. Please call Rick Stephens on 240-291-6890 or send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Facebook has a feature that shares the memories of the posts you added on the same day for several years. Today, for some reason, many memories have sprung up on my page: lately I have used social media only for my address book and my photos because there is too much hatred, anger and fake posts. I have found that I am more accomplished, I have time to send a letter or five just to surprise someone and I have more time to do the things I love with the people I love. Hope you try to do the same this week. Also, I don't want to forget to wish my friends Doris Giffin, Leslie Cochran, Loni Henline, Alice Atkins, Bonnie Miller, Eileen Owens and my father-in-law Larry Slifer a happy birthday! I'm sure I missed some of them, and I'm sorry for that. "Do to others what you would like to be done to you." This is actually a verse from the Bible, Luke 6:31. This verse is commonly known as the Golden Rule; in the sense that we have to treat others the way we want them to treat us.
