September 26, 2010 - Unintimidated

Mitty says she's not the least bit afraid of hard work.  As a matter of fact, she's so unintimidated by it she can lay right beside it and fall asleep. 

September 13, 2010 - Hail Storm!

Hail storm, an unusual weather event here, hit us unexpectedly, lasting only a couple of minutes.  The sound of the hail pelting my poor old red Jeepy had us staring agape.  Fortunately no visible damage resulted, though the last of my summer flowers were bedraggled.

Liz & Jerrad's Wedding, Cape Neddick, Maine - September 5, 2010

A picture perfect day!

Exchanging promises under God's  great blue canopy.
Even threats of Hurricane Earl could not stop this beautiful wedding. 

To have and to hold from this day forward....

August 21, 2010 - Cornish (New Hampshire) Fair

Don't you just love a country fair!

Antique tractors and tractor pulls.

Oxen pulls, horse pulls, chain saw cutting, log rolling, pole climbing.

4H shows, wool spinning, pig races.

Ferris wheels, cotton candy,  farm fresh ice cream (which believe it or not I don't like because it always tastes the way the barn smells to me!), barbecued chicken and seeing old schoolmates.  What a day!

For the past 60+ years my little home town has held an annual fair just before the start of the new school year.  It was the last hurrah, the last  long days of  summer vacations, that we as children celebrated before having to settle back into the routine of school and homework.
