No Kidding

A while back we were meandering through West Gardiner to where, I don't recall, but we came across this vacancy sign. Was this a couples only resort?

No, we discovered... it was a horse motel (OK... OK... a stable...) with accommodations by the month.

Then this white-bearded guy came out to greet us. His name was Jerry.

"Please," he pleaded (or was that bleated?), "won't you feed my kids?"

So we dropped a few coins in the revamped vending machine. Anything for Jerry's kids.

No, your other left...

Caught this one in Richmond along Route 201 heading south. It seems that daylilies always know which way to point. Towards the sun of course. If you want to buy any from this seller, well... there are times when you just have to take your chances.

Youth and Community Garden

I snapped this photo on our way to Popham Beach one day a few weeks back. It couldn't have been July or June because of ALL THE RAIN!!!! Located on a fairly busy road, this large garden is happily identified with a pleasing and colorful sign. Kudos to the Bath area schools for growing a "shovel ready" project, to stimulate a connection to the community.

Honey, let's get married!

Ali and I just returned from a fabulous 12 day vacation spent tent camping at Cobscook State Park in Edmunds Township near Lubec in Washington County. Our 8th wedding anniversary coincided with the trip. Our August 2001 wedding took place in our back yard with family and friends. It was a memorable day and all the planning and preparation was well worth the effort.

This sign, located on Route One in Northport, would have provided a Plan B.

Conundrum: A paradoxical, insoluble, or difficult problem.
