Author Talk & Signing at the Freeport Community Library.….I had never turned left at the light coming into Freeport from I95 North! It’s usually to McD’s or LL Bean and the other shops when we stop over in Freeport.
What a beautiful library right there, just down the street from the busy section of town! The acoustics there are phenomenal. We had a great group attend including some of my ‘ole MESARD folks! And Mr & Mrs Gary Anderson! So great to feel the support of friends and prior co-workers!
What a day for the International Sea Plane Fly-In! The weather in Greenville was great! There were so many people, as always. We were able to set up our tent near the front door of the IF&W Greenville headquarters. We had a little obstruction when all the vehicles were parking, but we hope to rectify that next year when we attend and get to see even more people. See you then!
We were thrilled to head back downeast! Even in the midst of a rainy evening, plenty of folks came out to the Ellsworth Public Library. We even had fellow Game Warden Wayde Carter and family come all the way from Machias to be part of the meet and greet! Wayde, as you will know from reading the book, was my counter-part in many of my adventures while in the Warden Service.
Carter Ridge Kennels is where we got our Saba! We love her so! Check out the fantastic painting on the wall behind me – looks like one of our dogs may have posed for it!
Kate and I were on our own today in Damariscotta as Jolyne spent the wee hours of this morning helping our youngest dog to produce 10 puppies! We arrived at about 11:00 am and spent a few hours chatting with folks about the book. I was anxious to get home and check on those puppies!
Photo is a little graphic….but that’s life! Yup, there are 10 there! Whew! And our Friz is a little girl herself!
Where were you on August 27, 2016? We were set up on Main Street in Camden chatting with the people passing by. The folks at the Sherman’s Bookstore were so nice to have a table and some chairs for us. And it was a beautiful, sunny day, too!
A long day today in Portland….first we interviewed with MPBN radio live from 1-2 pm and then had a quick bite to eat and headed over hang around at the Sherman’s Bookstore for the evening.
If you missed the radio show, here is a link to listen to it. Enjoy! We heard from so many people who happened to have their radios on for the show.
We left Indian Hill Trading Post for a bite to eat at Flatlander’s Pub before going on to the Center for Moosehead History where the Shaw Public Library & the Moosehead Historical Society teamed up to host us for an evening of great interaction and reminiscing about my years here in Greenville.
Conversation had to be louder than the fans used to circulate the air in the historic building. But we were able to still have a wonderful evening!
Another “hometown” to visit! We were privileged to call this “last town before the big woods” as our own for many years. This is the town our children most grew up in. This is where we changed our walk of faith. This is where we homeschooled for many years. This…is where most of the book happened…. Continue reading
A re-visit to the library! What fun! We saw a different crowd tonight. More kids, so the story took a different slant. Sometimes, you’ve just got to leave some of the details out….
So glad to visit our town’s library again.
August always brings us to our hometown. The annual Jackman Alumni Open House is always on the first Saturday, so we coordinated with Bishop’s Store for a signing event and we headed north! It was a great day all around – especially having a gal come into the store who was in my original class at Forest Hills! I had not seen her for….ever! Ray and I caught up on old times and Maxine surprised the heck out of me!
