Josh Tuthill and Kian Tuthill were up from Richmond, Va., to see Jacob Tuthill’s football games against Oxford at the Keith Clark Park on Sunday for third and fourth graders. Jacob’s team is undefeated and he was excited to get so much playing time. Jacob played in several positions getting a workout from the coaches. Family members who went to see the game included Bev Vergason, Honeybee Tuthill, Dave and Debbie Tuthill, Josh Tuthill, Kian Tuthill, Matt Albright, Addi Albright, Kristen Jones and Karen Jones.

While visiting my foster parents, Elinor and Everett France of Horton Brook, it was a beautiful day to see the scenery on that end of the county. Dave’s mom, Bev Vergason, rode over and had a good time with old time friends.

News from the Appalachian Trail: Tom and company have not reached Maine yet. The White Mountains have slowed them considerably, only managing 6-8 miles with the ascent, descent and the rainy weather. All are well but chilly. When talking on the phone with his dad, Tom remarked, “Dad, stop talking so I can hike. I’m going as fast as I can.”
