Uninspired today. On an unrelated note, the ceiling lights in the bedroom are a 50s kind of ugly.

365.119

With all the goings on as of late, I almost forgot to take a photo today.

Ohmygawd, why are you waking me up to stick a camera in my face? I hate you.

365.97

No, it's totally cool, Drunk Montreal Hipsters. I hated that mirror anyway. Je vais le remplacer par un meilleur miroir!

I've got my Cincinnati supplies, so let's play ball! Happy Opening Day, y'all!

365.92

Thanks to some cigars from my Best Woman, Laura, my packing for St. Lucia is now complete. This is all you need, right?

Snowy day on the coast of Maine.

365.33

Nooooooope. Not going back outside.

365.32

Our car died, so instead of dropping in on friends in Union, we headed to The Strand (a 1920s movie theater) in downtown Rockland to watch the Superbowl (commercials).

365.31

My job offers so many reasons to get up and get to work early... today, they ran the Model T snowmobile in the fresh snow. Only, I didn't make it to work until later. So I only saw the aftermath.

365.30

This is what happens when you leave OHTM employees to their own devices... we end up test-driving our 1958 BMW Isetta!

The first thing I accomplished in 2015 was this Edward Gorey puzzle that I got for Christmas. Not a bad start.

A 1955 Jaguar XK140 for my in laws. And a chrome-painted 1913 Stevens-Duryea Tourer for good measure.

The low here in Rockland, Maine, on January 7/8 was -9 F. So there's that.

When we left Wyoming to move to Maine, everyone said something along the lines of, “Well, I guess you’re trading in mountains for ocean!”

Millinocket Lake Camping Trip

Looking Up to Katahdin from Lake Millinocket

But judging from what I’ve seen, I traded in mountains for more mountains AND an ocean! And some lakes and rain and trees and fog and rolling hills and lobstah…

The fog is creeping in around the Fog Bar.

Rockland, ME

Fog Bar in Rockland, ME

After a weekend of sweltering heat (air conditioners and fans are SOLD OUT in Rockland!), we’re back to a rather brisk 60. We haven’t tried this funky (trendy-casual?) bar yet, but it’s on our list!
