Years ago Hyannis News naturally came to a regretful end when I was living outside of the United States. Now that I’m back with no immediate plans of leaving… Missing my readers very much, I’ve decided, as the Blues Brothers once said, to “Get the band back together.” And the response has been amazing! Just under 10,000 hits in the first three days, plus emails from old and new friends!
Keep in mind that I’m just one lad at this point. I’m experimenting with code through trial and error… thank God for prefab ‘widgets!’ Next I’ll be making the new Hyannis News ‘buggy’ smart phone friendly! Which is funny, because I currently only own a ‘stupid phone.’ Which is why I’m always open to the kindness of resourceful strangers and old friends who have offered their help as things slowly begin to take off… again!
But I digress… Today I was out having a much needed drive regardless of the prohibitive gas prices and I came across the ‘police scene’ in the photo. I spoke with Officer Tom Leduc, basically asking whether I had hit the jackpot and stumbled across the crime of the century. Tom informed me I hadn’t. But hey, it was still nice to see him… still out there looking out for all of us while we sit like bugs-in-a-rug inside our warm living rooms.
And not to go against my self-imposed Hyannis News policy I snapped off a few shots regardless… because you never know… the snow could fall off the windows, revealing a fresh corpse! (Sorry, I must remember that I’m writing to readers who enjoy normalcy and peaceful living… with fairer sensibilities.) I’m a man after news, always have been, always will… Which is why I cannot wait for Hyannis News to be finished (more or less) with the technical initial phases so I can bring to you news not found anywhere else.
To quote a favorite commercial of mine, “Stay thirsty my friends!”
