I love my town

.

Sometimes things look a little different in my state.

Don’t knock it, you can carry quite a few six packs in that bucket.

Some of our locals are poets.

.

The benefit of living in a small rural town filled with farms? Our food pantry is always well stocked for those less fortunate.

.

.

Maine is on a temperature roller coaster right now.

.

I swear I’m getting whiplash.

.

.

But still…

Life is good.

      1. Test kits in Canada are free. They gave us 5 tests each, but we only used one. We figured if I was Covid-free, so was Gail. And that’s what it ssid. No Covid in our house, so far.

  1. Maine and Nova Scotia have very similar weather. Covid rapid tests are free here, thanks to high taxes to cover free but not always quick healthcare. And you need to know where to get them. I currently don’t know where. There are rural places here where a tractor would drive to the liquor store. I personally never have never seen it but I know it could happen.

      1. Our snow drifts do look like giant ice-cream cones. I just found out that my hometown, Winnipeg, is presently having its 3rd biggest total snowfall on record since 1872. Having lived through many Winnipeg winters, I know how much snow that takes. I have only lived in High Level for 15 years, but officially or not, this is the most snow I have seen since we moved here. Not a 150 year sampling like Winnipeg, but still one hekkuva lot of snow. Everytime we think to travel the 800 kms to the big city to stock up on ess
        entials that we cannot get up here, it snows. We haven’t been to Edmonton since October! We were going to go today just to the town 200 kms away for some things not availanle here, but we woke up to another 3 incnes of snow. It will take till tomorrow, we hope, for the roads to be safe.again. it is not “supposed” to snow tonight. Fingers are crossed…

      2. Hope you had a good visit, otherwise. Besutiful country in BC. I lived there a few times over the years. Winter sports in summer. Summer sports in winter. A true Wonderland.

      3. We rented a cabin with a few friends on Shuswap Lake. It was incredible. The fishing was great even though I didn’t catch anything but a righteous buzz. Our friend who set it up lived in Calgary, but has since moved to Nova Scotia, so I guess our next visit will be somewhere in that area. I would really like to see Montreal and the Laurentian mountains.

      4. Sounds good. When I need spiritual refreshment i listen to “Jonathan Livingstone Seagull” and close the physical world out. I travel inside my mind.
        Different strokes, and all that jazz.

      5. I get that. The Moody Blues did a song called “Thinking is the best way to travel. “I’m a John Denver guy when it’s time to make a little peace in my head. Everyone needs some of that from time to time.

      6. The Moodies went places no other band could. When they reinvented themselves, they reinvented rock music. Too bad hardly anyone still knows them today.

      7. I couldn’t agree more. Justin Hayward made me want to play the guitar and Mike Pinder’s mellotron on “New Horizons” moves me like no other keyboard solo ever has, or probably will.

      8. I loved when new Beatles’ albums came out. I could not wait for Eric Burdon to show me his next venture. The MOODIES, I needed them to make more music.

      9. The ticks I will pass on. I got bit by one in Poland many years ago. Destroyed my digestive system.
        The black flies we have too, but only for two weeks a year in summer. Don’t wear yellow around them, or mosquitoes. They seem to love it. Maybe something to do with sunlight???

  2. Well that’s one thing Maine and rural Texas have in common, either Cat, John Deers or International tractors parked in front of a small country store. My FIL use to go during lunch to try out a tractor he was working to make sure it was running well. And then pick up his lunch from a store or small restaurant 😝. God bless your towns food pantry, all those veggies looks so good especially those artichokes, yum. Another thing Maine and far Southwest Texas have in common the weather whiplash dance….ugh, so annoying.
