Yesterday was a great day, or a good day, but it almost made me tired. It was Hollies 30th birthday so we celebrated that. She had heard so much about 30 making women feel older that she had some question as to whether she was a "geezer" or not. No, I told her you have to be 60 to start being a geezer. She was satisfied with that answer.
We ate lunch at Bugaboo Creek in Bangor, because they give a birthday cake to the celebrant and you also get to kiss the moose (stuffed head). She informed them that she has Autism and didn't want any noise or candles. She also requested the cake to go. She did kiss the moose.
I recently learned that the animals on the walls will no longer talk, that's kind of sad because children, and a lot of adults, really liked that.
So, I left home at 4:15am to go to coffee and got home about 1:30pm, I think that's about 9 hours and enough time doing things to make me a little tired.

|Rangeley Lakes - click to enlarge|

Most people fished for food. They took fish with bait. Then came the "sports" from the east coast cities. They fished with flies, for sport.
The two sides didn't get along to say the least. It was a mostly verbal war. In one instance a cook fishing for food has a large trout on his line. "Play it!, play it" shouted at sport. "Play your grandmother" the cook shouted back as he waved a 15 pounder over his head.

|Dauphin Red and Manitoba Brown 1929 Dodge Roadster|
The car was originally sold in Waltham, Massachusetts in 1929 and it looks just as good now as it did then. It was done in the original colors and tan sharkskin leather. Sharkskin is a finish of regular leather not from the fish.

|The Pig on a plane|
One woman was an "emotional support animal" that's a pig. That's right, she has for her "emotional" support a pot bellied pig. A fine swine if ever there were one. But the porker doesn't like to fly.
Recently the woman and her support animal boarded a flight, she tied the leash to an armrest and the pig went wild. No flight for the little guy, he was off-loaded and that little piggy stayed home.
