I’m lucky to live in a small community, where our neighbors watch our backs and everyone will lend a hand when needed. This is what matters most. Not what you have, but who you are surrounded by.

A cheeky little lunch at @tonic.social today. _ Tucked under the Hilton hotel, Tonic Social has a large, well stocked central bar area and lots of beautiful seating, with both sunny and cosy tables. _ I picked a couple of nibbles from the menu to try, including some delicious ‘beerkins’ which were beer battered gherkins 😍. Plus with a @badhandcoffee flat white, you can’t go wrong! ❤️ _ _ _ #dorsetfoodiefamily #tonicsocial #bar #lunch #blogger #dorset #food #foodie #eastdorset #eatlocal #instafood

"It wasn't long after his [#BillW 's father, Gilman B. Wilson] departure [on a business trip from which #BillWilson said his father didn't return] that we pulled up, Mother [Emily Griffith Wilson], [Bill's sister,] Dorothy, and I, assisted by [Bill's maternal] Grandfather [Gardner Fayette] Griffith, and moved back to #EastDorset , Vermont, only twenty-five miles away. . . . . "Shortly after we moved back to East Dorset, mother took Dorothy and me on what we thought was to be a picnic at beautiful North Dorset Pond, now called by city folks Emerald Lake. . . . Then it was that Mother told us that Father had gone for good."

#BillW stated in his "autobiography": . "It wasn't long after his departure [i.e., the departure of #AA cofounder #BillWilson 's father, Gilman B. Wilson, from Rutland] that we pulled up [from Rutland], Mother [Emily G. Wilson], Dorothy [Dorothy B. Wilson (AKA "Dot"), Bill's younger sister], and I [#WilliamGriffithWilson ], assisted by Grandfather Griffith [Gardner Fayette Griffith], and moved back to #EastDorset , . . ." . [See: Bill W., "My First 40 Years," 12.] . According to Emily G. Wilson's petition for divorce which her attorney, O. M. Barber, filed in Bennington, Vermont, on September 11, 1909: "[O]n the 1st day of May, 1906, the said Gilman B. Wilson . . . deserted the said petitioner, and has continued such desertion from that time until the filing of said petition." [Source: "The Bennington Evening Banner," Sept. 22, 1909, p. 4.] . Bill also wrote in his "autobiography": . "Shortly after we moved back to East Dorset, mother took Dorothy and me . . . to . . . North Dorset Pond, now called by city folks Emerald Lake. . . . Then it was that Mother told us that Father had gone for good. . . . I hid the wound [resulting from receiving that message] and never talked about it with anybody, even my sister, let along Grandfather and Grandmother Griffith, with whom Dorothy and I now went to live. . . . Grandfather Griffith financed her [Bill and Dorothy's mother] for the Boston College of Osteopathy, and excepting for brief vacation periods, I saw little of her for the next years." . [See: Bill W., "My First 40 Years," 13.] . The Boston College of Osteopathy, founded in 1897, underwent a name change in 1903 to Massachusetts College of Osteopathy. .

A huge massive thank you to @dorsetgrowthhub Last week they awarded us a much needed startup grant to help us continue to grow our business. This awesome gesture has been able to fund some of the equipment we needed but were struggling to pay out for. I highly recommend their service for any new business and growing business in Dorset. The staff are lovely and extremely helpful. Thank you again for helping us.
