I love my town… Part 5.

 

It’s time to take a look at the riveting happenings posted on my town’s FB page again.

There are the usual missing critter reports.

Though pigs have taken a back seat to birds this week.

Snakes are actively being sought.

 

 

 

 

As are nuts.

*Note to male readers – I do not support the crushing of nuts between your legs. No letters, please.*

Artful pumpkins are being carved…

And grapes are plentiful.

Syrup is available.

As are extremely round sheep.

Then there’s the woman who wants everyone to watch a program about garbage.

Garbage…

 

 

 

You’re doing it wrong.

 

 

White Mountains trip Day 2…. Upper Jackson Falls

 

Yes… we’re still on the second day of our trip.

And yes, we’re still at the Falls.

 

 

Hey, just be glad I’m weeding through the 1704 photos and only giving you the highlights.

Working our way up the falls took some time.

 

354

 

But it really was lovely.

 

362

 

Nothing like hanging out with Mother Nature to lower your blood pressure.

 

 

The closer we got to the top, the more people just plunked themselves down on the rocks and made themselves comfortable…

 

366

 

And why not?

It’s a great place to read, unwind…and enjoy the day.

 

 

At the top you cross a wonderful iron bridge…

 

374

 

Look both ways…

 

372

 

And say thank you Jackson Falls…

 

 

I thoroughly enjoyed spending time with you.

 

377

 

And your rocks.

(Or maybe that was just me.)

Done with the Falls, we headed into town for some sustenance.

 

384

 

And found the cutest pumpkin display ever…

 

388

 

Next to our destination.

 

390

 

It looked promising.

 

391

 

Warm and inviting.

 

395

 

A vintage inn and tavern whose bar was packed to the rafters that late Saturday afternoon.

 

393

 

I wanted to love it.

 

394

 

I mean come on, they had ski lift seating….

 

396

 

And a sign for the Woodchuck Trail. Who doesn’t love that?

But the service was terrible, the beer was warm and the food? When it finally came, over an hour after we ordered, was barely edible.

Sorry Martin, I didn’t even bother with pictures. Dry meatless ribs and a soggy Rachel sandwich do not warrant photographs.

But martian pumpkins and gourds?

Definitely do.

Things I like today… Part 9.

 

I like…

The Damariscotta Pumpkin Fest. We’ve never been, but someday….

Someday I’m going up there to watch people float down the river in giant pumpkin boats.

I like…

The color coordination of fall leaves and the husband’s tractor.

 

IMG_6626

 

I like….

The idea of cotton candy cloud coffee.

 

IMG_6316

 

On second thought, to heck with the coffee…. just let me walk around with a sugar cloud over my head all day.

I like…

People who are really, really devoted to a theme.

 

IMG_6662

 

Please note the skulls on the front grille.

Doesn’t that just make you want to yell….

 

Things I like today… Part 7

 

I like…

This tee shirt I picked up at Goodwill the other day.

 

IMG_6212

 

If my husband would just follow this one simple rule, life would be so much more pleasant.

I like…

The new yellow kiwi fruit.

 

IMG_6210

 

Have you tried them?

 

IMG_6211

 

Yum!

I like….

The Annual Damariscotta PumpkinFest Regatta.

(And you thought we only raced zucchini in Maine. Pfft!)

 

 

 

But this year, I really like the pumpkin they’re using to advertise it.

 

IMG_6214

 

I like…

Finding multiple praying mantises (manti?) on the baby barn we’re remodeling.

Did you know the female praying mantis bites off her partner’s head after sex?

Clearly she’s a woman who doesn’t like to cuddle.

I like…

Apple season.

 

IMG_6231

 

Our trees are loaded with juicy fruit…

And soon my belly will be full of juicy pie and fritters.
