Maine has almost as many light houses as the state of Michigan.
If you enlarge this picture you will see Lobster traps out on a small barge in the water.
I thought you might like this picture of our American Flag flying on the back of the boat.
This is a quick picture I took walking down one of the busiest streets of Booth Bay.
Christi and I need to share pictures because she managed to get some good pictures of
the gorgeous homes in this little village.
My breakfast date Christi is looking at me like Please Mother not another picture!
Booth Bay Harbor is a tourist village in the summer time. They have numerous little shops to visit and spend your money. I have to tell you a quick little story of what happened to me in one of the shops.
I can stand for hours looking at beautiful scarfs. It is funny how when I see a display of scarfs I head straight to them and have to fill each and every one. Yeah I know strange right?
Anyway I am doing my scarf thing and I feel this hard pinch on my rear end. I jump and immediately turn around. There standing behind me is an older man just waiting for me to slap the ever loving crap out of him.
I was furious. Furious maybe is not the right word. I recognized him from earlier in the day as the husband of a woman that had spoke to me while we were waiting on a table at the little cafe for breakfast.
Just when I was fixing to knock his lights out his wife walks up. I stopped Ms Pearl from making mince meat of this guy but later in the day Christi told me that I should not have let his wife being there keep me from slapping him. I have tell you Christi was as mad at the guy as I was.
I told her I just felt empathy or something for the wife and just could not embarrass her for something so stupid that her husband did.
We hung around the area for a little while wanting to catch the guy by himself so I could turn Ms Pearl loose on him but funny how he managed to never leave his wife's side after the pinch.
I know what you are thinking! No wonder Maggie fell in love with Booth Bay. lol
Don't even go there. I already have heard that from all of Christi's friends.
You have to be tired of all my Maine pictures but I promise I won't share too many more.
Hard to believe that it is already October! So much has been going on out here on the North Forty that I have not been able to be inside long enough to play on the computer. By the time I come in at night I am so tired I head straight to the tub and sometimes fix me something to eat or just collapse without it.
Yesterday I had my kitten Billie Sue fixed and her mother goes in the morning for the same treatment.
Every time Momma Kitty gets pregnant I stress myself out trying to keep her and the babies safe from predators out here on the North Forty. The last time Billie Sue was the only survivor so I made up my mind to end at least one stressful thing in my life.
Also have been working on my house in town that was left a mess the last time a renter left it. I am seriously thinking that Monday a For Sale sign will go in the front yard. It has drained me both mentally and physically every time some one leaves it like this young woman did. My problem is I can't afford to let the house sit empty while on the market and yet renting it is a dead end so what's that saying, "I am between a rock and a hard spot!" I keep praying about what I should do about it so I know the answer will come.
The Warrenton/Round Top show has been going on too for several weeks now. I have not been able to go out to enjoy it like most years. The weather is in the high 90's most afternoons so they are having a very HOT show this time around. Sharon wants me to slow down and go out tomorrow but have not decided if I will or not.
Been worried too about one of our blogging buddies Marydon from Blushing Rose. I need to check on her and see if she is doing better.
Hope you are well and enjoying the fall. I am looking forward to planting some mums over the weekend and maybe buying a few pumpkins for the porch.
Pumpkins make me smile. I love them. Every fall I am wishing that I had a Pumpkin Patch out here.
Do something for you this weekend! Remember be gentle on yourself cause I love you!
Love to all
