A little of this.. and a whole lot of nothing.

.

This is an aerial shot of my little Maine town and I dare you to say it’s not a beautiful place to live.

.

.

This is Lord Dudley Mountcatten and he’s a bit of a goober.

.

.

He could tuck his tail beside him, or move farther down the window to accommodate its length…. but does he? No.

Because he’s a goober.

.

.

Our neighbor and his two teenage boys came over last weekend and ended up at the man cave pool table. Poor kids, my husband and their father were both telling them how to play and they couldn’t have been more confused.

.

.

Does Lord Dudley need a Princess Leia donut hairdo wig?

.

.

The answer is no.

But his mother is seriously considering the Storm Trooper catnip mice….

.

.

Because, come on… what’s not to love?

.

.

Something for everyone.

 

Can’t find a mask to suit your personality?

I think I can help with that.

For all my wonderful women friends?

 

 

For all my slightly wine addicted friends?

 

 

For Star Wars fans like  James.

 

 

Do you love horses… or just want to look like one?

I’ve got your back.

 

 

There are even masks for those who need to read lips.

 

 

And of course, there are masks made just for me..

 

 

And because I shamefully admit there are multiple tie dye items in my closet….

 

This one is calling my name.

 

 

I should probably wear one of those when assisting my husband with outdoor projects.

Dr. Seuss has a say…

 

 

And finally,  if you’re just sick and tired of everyone?

 

Products worth a second look.

 

 

 

Does anyone need a banana phone?

No.

But buy one and save a gorilla just the same.

 

 

 

A must for Star Wars fanatics.

Yes James,  I’m talking to you.

 

 

 

Cake.

On a stick.

Need I say more?

 

 

I’m not sure my bar game could possibly be more up, but bottles of gin are definitely my favorite DIY.

 

 

While I take umbrage at the horrible people designation (I’ve always thought of myself as just slightly awful) this is one seriously  bawdy, provocative, risqué  fun party game.

Does it surprise you to know I have all 6 expansion packs?

 

 

It shouldn’t.

So if you like  raunchy, crude, earthy  blue humor?

Give it a try.

Bird brains.

 

First let’s deal with the peckers.

Because we all know not paying attention to peckers makes them crazy.

 

 

when-youre-right-youre-right

 

 

This is a hairy woodpecker.

 

IMG_1982

 

Why hairy?

Your guess is as good as mine.

 

IMG_1983

 

He loves the peanut nugget feeder and is an expert at extracting them.

 

IMG_1981

 

There.

Now you can say you’ve had a hairy pecker wink at you.

 

 

This is a downy woodpecker.

 

IMG_1987

 

Why downy?

Your guess is as good as mine.

 

IMG_1986

 

To be honest, he looks more like a Storm Trooper from Star Wars to me.

Then we have a pair of Mallard ducks who visit daily.

 

IMG_1992

 

The female strolls around under the bird feeder collecting scraps….

 

IMG_1991

 

While the drake plops down and takes a load off.

That’s one chill duck.

 

IMG_2016

 

Big Tom turkey?

 

IMG_2027

 

Yes, we have one of those too.

 

IMG_2047

 

And finally, a Baltimore Oriole getting his junk food Jones satisfied with some grape jelly.

It would be nice if he didn’t poo all over the feeder…. but hey.

Who am I to judge?

 

Pandemic humor… laugh while you can.

 

Because we all need a chuckle.

 

 

 

Well done kitty.

Now step up your game and fetch us some toilet paper.

 

 

Does anyone think about all the poor out of work hookers?

No.

But I’m sure they’re feeling the pinch as well… although probably not in the places they’re used to.

 

 

Sad, but true.

 

 

Also sad, but true.

I read a cockroach can survive for 6 months without it’s brain. Hell, Keith’s got that record beat already.

 

 

Other places?

Ay caramba!

 

 

Even I’ll say amen to that.

The post in which River goes to a Lobster Festival but can’t eat lobster.

 

The following is proof that my husband can inflict cruel and unusual punishment.

It happened at The 72nd Maine Lobster Festival in Rockland, Maine.

We lucked out and found a parking spot close to the festival, and it was across the street from the Trade Winds resort where I spotted the first lobster.

 

IMG_5645

 

Although it looked more like a demented crawfish…

 

IMG_E5648

 

The stupid thing had teeth!

This did not bode well for the day….

 

IMG_E5610

 

But the weather was perfect…

 

IMG_E5614

 

And we were near the ocean.

It doesn’t get much better than that…

 

IMG_E5611

 

Or does it?

Aaarrgghh!

There be Pirates.

 

IMG_5613

 

Pirates on the boats…

Pirates on the piers…

 

IMG_5617

 

Basically, there were pirates everywhere.

IMG_E5609

 

And as much as I tried to avoid it?

 

IMG_E5631

 

There was lobster.

Mocking me and my damned allergy.

 

 

World’s Largest Lobster cooker?

 

IMG_5621

 

Yup… that too.

 

 

We passed lobster rolls, lobster stew, lobster quesadillas, lobster mac and cheese, lobster chowder, lobster Caesar salad, lobster wontons, even lobster risotto balls….

And then there was this:

 

IMG_5623

 

Me…. sitting in a tent, surrounded by people eating lobster.

 

IMG_5625

 

I had to sit and watch my husband as he oohed and ahhed over every last sweet, fresh from the water, dripping in melted butter, bite.

Cruel and unusual to be sure.

 

 

It wasn’t easy.

I tried to find solace in a crabmeat roll…

 

IMG_E5630

 

And the required  I’m at a street festival and have to eat the junkiest, highest calorie  thing I can find  fried dough.

 

IMG_E5632

 

It was good… but it wasn’t lobster.

Cursing my treacherous body,  I pulled up my big girl panties and soldiered on.

 

IMG_E5608

 

We strolled through the art show…

 

IMG_5640

 

And into the lobster trap lined entrance to the craft show.

 

imagesEBGEN1DP

 

Where the husband bought organic natural honey…

 

IMG_5620

 

And we saw a buoy that believed size does matter….

 

IMG_5619

 

There was another tent filled with lobster eaters…

 

IMG_5626

 

And King Neptune….

 

IMG_5627

 

Who looked a little lost.

 

IMG_E5634

 

The King is quite popular at the festival….

 

IMG_E5638

 

And people line up for photos whenever he walks by.

 

Trump - Sinking Ship

 

My lobster-less belly aside, it was a fun day.

 

IMG_E5650

 

And Rockland is a fun town.

Although I have to admit, the children do look a little….

Off.

Things I like today… chapter 2.

A Maine woman is experimenting with weed to dull a lobster’s pain as he’s plunged into that boiling pot of water.

Name That Crap #2

 

My first attempt at stumping WordPress readers with the husband’s crap failed miserably.

Name That Crap

Answer to Name That Crap

Clearly, you lot know your crap.

No, it’s really not.

But let’s try again anyway.

It stands approximately two feet tall and is made of wood and metal.

What it is?

Yes, it is.

But I’ll need you to be more specific….
