• And a torrential downpour just in time for the weekend …

• In other news, I just got back from a retirement luncheon for Evening Sun sales associate Linda Green, who has left her post after 16 years catering to the needs of Chenango County businesses. Linda and her longtime cohort, err … colleague Peggy Elliott were the backbone of the newspaper’s advertising department for years. At lunch today, I jokingly referred to their tenure as the “Peggy and Linda Show,” but boy how I miss both of them. Friends, colleagues, surrogate mothers both. Happy retirement to both you and Chuck, Linda … you certainly deserve it!

• Here’s a random, probably unpopular thought: Must we raise awareness about everything? I get it already, I’m aware!

• Heading into the weekend, Julian’s covering the homecoming parade in my native Oxford tomorrow (somehow I got my wires crossed and sent him down today, but sometimes it’s fun to confuse the newbies), and Frank and Pat are off to what looks to be an exciting football game in Sherburne tonight. Be sure to check Monday’s paper for all the details – and photos.
