A mix-up in last week's Straight Talk asking "What makes you laugh?" ended up misidentifying Sharon McCullough from Martintown, shown at right, whose answer was, “My little grandson Wesley makes me laugh. He's 11 months old and we played in the sand and the stones today, we chased the dog, and we gobbled like the turkey. He's a hoot!” Also, Apple Hill’s Catherine Proulx was misidentified. Her answer was, “Bitterns, the birds you see at Cooper Marsh.
Whenever they get frightened, they stand stretched with their bills pointing straight at the sky. It's so silly when they do it in the middle of a lawn.”
