I have to post this one too. For as long as I can remember this beautiful blue goblet sat on the mantle of my Grammie & Grampie's house in Cape Cod. They moved into an assisted living facility about two years ago and I got to bring it to my home. I love, love, love it! I put a votive in it and it looks so nice.

It's a stained glass froggie. I bought another, but I can't find the picture of it. I'll add a pic when I get it. I LOVE stained glass window catchers. Here's a few from my collection:
That one's a 3-D window catcher. It's in an old window from and has tree branches in it. The tree branches have stained glass leaves and a stained glass moon attached to them. It's called "Blue Moon" and I got it at North Quabbin Woods a few years back. The artist is amazing and has items for sale there.
These two were give to me by my Grammie:
Lastly, this is a yard sale find from this summer. I haven't hung it up yet, but it looks pretty cool just sitting on a table.

Here's Momma Sue modeling her new bathing suit and sun hat. And Hankie and I pooped out on the hammock at the end of a busy day. And two of my all-time favorite people - John and Lorraine!

- In Maine, there are a number of toddlers who have gone missing recently and the fisher cats are taking them and eating them. Seriously, WTF? How do you respond to this? And her grandfather kills every fisher he sees so they'll stop taking and eating the babies. OMG - CRAZY!
- A few years ago a drug smuggling plane crashed in Maine and all the packages of cocaine spilled onto the forest floor. A grizzly bear (no grizzly bear's in Maine-only black bears, and I have my doubts about drug smuggling crashed planes) found the cocaine, ate it, and went crazy. Local officials had to call the FBI in to find the drug-crazed bear and kill it. The lady was quite suprized that I hadn't read about this in the papers. She also said something along the lines of "Can you imagine all that cocaine the bear had? I mean, I've seen a lot of cocaine, but man that must of been a lot!" Hmm...she's seen a lot of cocaine? I would have never guessed.
- She just her three pet flying squirrels go. She's had them for years and every fall she has to go collect acorns and scrape lichen (which she pronounced 'lick-en' - rymes with chicken) from trees so that the squirrels could eat all winter. But now since she got thrown out of her apartment, she had to let them go.

Since I had to leave work early for my dentist appointment, Jami and I made plans to go get a late lunch of Thai food at the Dahra. We LOVE Thai food! This is how much Jami loves Thai food: when she opened up her menu, she turned to me and warned me that she was going to order Thai rolls but that I couldn't have any because she wanted to eat them all! I totally understood. I had Veggie Pad Thia - - - Yummy.

I got to spend a lot of time with my sister Jessie and my neice Thea May. Here's Thea taking a camp-style bath.
I took Hank and Koa for a nice canoe ride around Fearing Pond the first night we got there.
My mom's birthday is July 3rd, so we had lobster dinner and yummy cake that night for Momma Sue's b-day celebration.
It was very sweet to meet two new members of the Fearing Pond Brat Pack for the first time. Here's Graham and Casey - may they love camp as much as I do.
And then we just enjoyed being at the pond with a bunch of little kids.
Here we are tuckered out and ready for bed.
