UFO sighting in Lincoln

“Today, Sunday, at about 4:35 pm, I was driving down River Road in Lincoln, VT, when I saw what appeared to be a plane at low altitude heading east – upriver, so to speak. Besides going in a strange direction, it seemed to be flying low. As I drew closer I could see its outline in the darkening sky. It had wings with lights on the ends, a red light under the center, and what looked like two fuselages with an odd tail. It was just hanging there in the air like an air balloon. Hard to tell how high – maybe 200-300 feet?  I was so startled I turned around at the bottom of River Road and went back to look at it again, but it was gone. Did anyone else see this thing? I feel like I must have been hallucinating.  Thank you. “

iPhone rescued from Stowe toilet

“Yup! Cap dropped his iPhone in the toilet today so what do you do? … Post on Front Porch Forum to beg, borrow or steal an iPhone 4 or 5 from anyone who might have one hanging around! Thanks.”
• Ginny, Stowe FPF

“Thanks to all who suggested the rice method of drying out an iPhone. Special thanks to Jenny Lawson from BunyaBunya who gave me a plastic bag full of those little Silica gel desiccant packets. I added some rice too and…. Voila… it is working this morning!”

Hospitality help and a long ladder in Essex

“Thanks FPF for bringing me two great people this year: Khris and Shawn. I posted for help in my small hospitality business and Khris came into my life. She is someone with a big heart and natural understanding of what is needed. Thank You so Much!!! Secondly I asked if someone had an extra-long ladder, and Shawn, of Advanced Appliances, amazingly lent me his ladder. I was able to finish two difficult painting jobs. Thank You again Shawn!!! And Front Porch Forum. This would not have happened without You!!!!”

420 address sign in Waitsfield stolen… again

“Hi Neighbors… Once again someone stole my address numbers. This is the third time, twice this year. This time they pulled the whole post out of ground… with the number 420 on it. I have had this address since the start of E 911, and I hate to change it. If you see a brown 4×4 with number 420 on it please notify me or the State police.”
• Vic, Waitsfield FPF

“I want to thank all those who responded to my posting about the stolen house number post. You left me a lot of suggestions on what I could do. I want to thank Front Porch Forum for their help, and special thank you to Susan who spotted the post on Blush Hill in Waterbury, and sent me directions. The post has been picked up and I will reset it and try again.”
