My son’s first hunt

October 1st was a perfect day for a boy’s first hunting trip ever. The sun was out, and it was warm. Intermittent clouds kept it from being too warm. While the start of the day was later than I would have liked, it didn’t really matter. I was going hunting. With my son. And we […]

Seriously…I hate open water fishing!

Fellow blogger and registered Maine Guide, John Floyd often posts pictures of big fish he has caught, and almost as often I comment on how I rarely even DREAM of catching fish that big! Accepting that catching a bass in the four-pound class is just not going to happen for me. Being a great guy, […]

Despite spending $489, I was still denied my NASCAR experience!

Despite spending $489, I was still denied my NASCAR experience

Last week I lost a tire on I-95 just north of Old Town. Getting to the spare was one of my life’s greater challenges. Today, my life was met with an even greater challenge! Getting 4 brand new tires installed! I’ve had many vehicles in my near 47 complete years in life. And I have […]

Microsoft phone scam alert.

Hey folks! I got a call today from somebody with an accent that indicated he did not grow up in America with English-speaking parents. He told me he was from Microsoft, and was calling me about my Windows account. He seemed to have some difficulty hearing me, as he kept saying “Hello? Hello, are you […]

Have you heard of “Hike and Bike to Chance”?

A couple of ladies have taken up a cause, and it is one you should check out! My good friend Alicia is one of the co-founders of this cause, and I would appreciate it if you take a look at what she has to say, and then do what you can to help! TAKE IT […]

The “Little Farm Orchestra”

I’m sitting here on a rainy Monday morning listening to music of a rare kind. There is no real rhythm, or tune. The only beat comes from the dripping of the eaves onto the¬†various bowls, buckets, and wooden items below, and it has no pattern you can follow. The horn section is filled with the […]

You never know when a family outing will become a lasting memory

  Last summer, I believe it was late June, we surprised out son with a scenic flight of the Bath/Brunswick area. His 10th birthday was coming up, and he had spoken before about wanting to fly in a plane, and maybe get his pilot’s someday. My wife Jen, who often finds out great deals for […]

My goats eat an awful lot like sheep. Or… My sheep look and awful lot like goats!

Sheep and goats are similar in many ways. They can look alike at times, they both make “baaaah” noises that are similar, and most significantly they are both ruminants. Animals like cows, deer, and moose are also ruminants, along with giraffes and camels. Ruminants have 4 chambered stomachs, and regurgitate partially digested food to chew […]

The chicken that didn’t cross the road

So…We were bookin it down the road late yesterday afternoon, when I slammed on the binders, and hung a u-ey. Jen said, “What are you doing?” As I pulled into the road alongside the cemetery. “I saw a chicken. ” I said matter of factly. Well we looked all around, and there was no chicken […]
