Jane how are you? We'll be back in 6-7 weeks. The storm passed us last night,I woke a couple of times to a torrent of rain on the roof. This morning was sunny and clear. CH,hubby spoke to our local banker last week and he said that people are buying land and other properties sight unseen. We are preparing for the day we sell our property. We've done lots of upgrades this summer. We might be here one more summer. The unusual circumstances had the daughter and son-in-law here for 10 days,but otherwise,they probably aren't interested. We aren't on the coast, but this area is four seasons. My opinion is that our place would be perfect for fall hunting/winter/snowmobiling.

Ext @ 4:57...the Strand Theatre in Rockland,Maine has been running a pop-up movie series at the Owls Head Transportation Museum this summer. They cancelled the screening of Jaws because of the recent shark attack in Maine. They will continue screening the Jurassic Park movies instead,because dinosaurs won't run amuck in midcoast Maine. *eyeroll*

I'm sitting on the porch. The air is dead still and humid. The tropical storm will pass tonight. The woods smell earthy. Jane @ 3:51, we have a niece who lives in Austin. Yikes! We'll be thinking of you tomorrow!

Good Morning! I went to Bangor yesterday for two appointments and other errands. I had my temperature taken at each appointment. Of course,masks were required at the lab and at the dentist. The retail stores required masks and from what I saw there was full compliance. I hit a great sale at Talbots. The store was full of clothes and when I walked in,the associate said,"this is what happens when the store is closed for 10 weeks." Bangor was very quiet,this time of year it is usually busy with Canadians and other tourists headed to the coast. I saw a PEI license plate in one parking lot. This summer's tourism season is dead.

Lyle, are there any prizes in the Veepstakes pool? I have Warren and if I win some trinkets and beads, I'll have to have another garage sale! :)

Good afternoon! We had a "dirt road" garage sale today with our neighbors down the road. Wow, it is amazing the sh*....oops,I mean nice stuff people will buy. Some really great people stopped by. A family from Mass. who have a place on a nearby lake were curious how someone with an Italian name lived in northern Maine. Hubby has his Dad's old office sign hanging in the garage and they noticed the name. Hubby explained the story of his grandfather. Scout was a big hit with everyone, he was very well behaved. We had a laugh when a young woman with a baby came into the garage and the baby started crawling on the garage floor. Hubby said,"he'll be walking soon." She said, he walks,but he decided to crawl on every garage floor we've been to today." One woman said that people just want to get out and do something and the perfect weather today brought them out.

Breaking news from Howie Carr: no death penalty for the Boston Marathon Bomber. First Circuit Court overturned.

Good Morning! Hubby checked the garden this morning and came in with a double summer squash. Twin squash! Life is exciting in the woods. :) I was grumpy yesterday because hubby put on his safety goggles and a black mask and took a picture to send to his Karen sister. Not funny,I said. Then the news about Herman Cain and the media reaction. Howie Carr usually plays audio of idiot reporters and/or politicians and their idiot statements at the top of every hour. Yesterday afternoon he played the media's comments about Herman Cain and OMG! He went to a Trump rally and then he died. We had grilled cheese sandwiches for supper then I started reading my Kindle,looked at the clock and it was midnight. Thank God for books,reading is my escape.

Dave @ 4:47... Ha. When the daughter and son-in-law were here last week,they stayed on the porch late every evening. Before going to bed,I'd tell them to close the porch windows tight. Mom! Why?! It is too hot out here! My reply...I don't want a freaking bat sneaking in here!

We're listening to Biden's remarks on Howie Carr's show. Does anyone really think he will debate Trump?

Hubby likes to arrive early for an appointment. Don't get me started on how early we arrive to the airport for a flight. :)

The shark attack in Maine is a big deal. Two nearby state parks were closed. The emergency management agent in Harpswell said he had no protocol for a shark attack. It wouldn't be unusual to respond to distressed swimmers. Two people nearby got into a tandem kayak and pulled the woman to the shore. The first responders arrived to a gruesome scene. The poor woman's daughter was swimming with her mother.

Good Morning! MM, those weird seeds are showing up in Maine. A woman in Belfast said she received a package in June with Chinese characters and a Netherlands return address containing 15 seeds. Creepy.

The Maine media is reporting that the woman killed in the shark attack was from NYC and a summer resident of Bailey Island. Julie Holowach of NYC was attacked by a great white shark on Monday afternoon. Holowach was the longtime North American president of Kipling, a company that specializes in handbags. The commissioner of the Maine Department of Marine Resources said she was wearing a dark wetsuit that might have been confused with a seal. She is the first recorded fatality of a shark attack on the Maine coast.

Good afternoon! I've been listening to the audio from the Barr hearing on Rush and now on Howie Carr. We've been watching "The Twilight Zone" episodes recently in the evening. The hearing would have been a great episode. :)

Good Morning! The summer of 2020 has been all about Covid, riots and ongoing Trump hate. But something has been missing. Shark attacks! A woman who was swimming off of Bailey Island near Harpswell was attacked and killed by a shark yesterday. It is the first recorded fatality of a shark attack on the Maine coast. Apparently the sharks have been migrating north from Cape Cod to seek food and the Maine coast has a huge population of seals, a shark favorite. The unfortunate woman was brought to shore by two kayakers and is being ID'ed by authorities. The shark expert interviewed by the Portland Press Herald said to expect more human/shark interactions in the Maine coastal waters. Cue Jaws music. Yikes!

Rocco @ 11:14... we watched "Sinatra: All or Nothing at All" yesterday while it rained. We're convinced the mob killed JFK. Bobby and JFK supposedly didn't know their evil old man had met with the mob. *eyeroll*

Jack,how is Jazz this morning? I worry in Florida while walking Scout that he'll stick his nose in the wrong place and get bitten by a snake. The little frogs here are hopping all over the place because of all the rain. He loves chasing them.

Good Morning! The daughter and son-in-law were Covid nervous while staying here. I told them to relax, you aren't going to get Covid in the middle of the woods! They set up an "office" on the porch and worked all week. The sat internet was strong enough for all the devices,thank goodness. They were more relaxed by Friday when we drove to Moosehead Lake. Living in an urban environment is obviously more stressful than the woods so it took them all week to unwind.

Good afternoon! Ext @ 3:01...Yikes! Howie Carr will be all over that tomorrow. :) Also,finally someone got Olivia DeHavillad in the death pool! It has been raining all day here. We need it,still very dry and the water is low.

Good Morning! The daughter and son-in-law just left after a week of de-stressing in the woods. On Friday,we to took a ride to beautiful Moosehead Lake. All along the back roads,we saw Trump signs. Apparently, Stephen King is quite distressed about all the Trump signs in Maine. Ha.

Good Morning! The daughter and son-in-law have been visiting and decided to stay until Monday. They are both working (very) remotely. Discussing politics is off the table. We took them for a ride on the back roads and I think they were shocked by the Trump signs. We also fly a Betsy Ross flag.
