Lewiston Auburn Saturday night.. .

Thanks to Colleen and her Mom and Dad for the wonderful lobster dinner this afternoon.

Here Colleen explains the art of eating clams and lobster to Katie. Katie is skeptical.

Susan Davis- Frank's lovely new wife.


Amy also is trying lobster for the first time.



Why are my feet here??? Well, everyone keeps asking me about my sandals. Are they comfortable? What are they? Where did you get them? And my personal favorite: Did you get those from Jesus? Scroll down for the answers to these burning questions.


This is Scooter. He is the purveyor of the fine sandals pictured above. Are they comfortable? Yes, very comfortable. Scooter is also a very nice man.


This is Scooter's shop. If you happen to see him or his sandals at a venue near you, buy a pair. Heck, buy two. They are wonderful. All are handmade. I did not get them from Jesus, I got them from Scooter. But, I'm told that Jesus had a similar pair. Maybe, he was on to something...

My pink pair pictured above I picked up here this weekend. Scooter was kind enough to bring them in my size just for me. You can also order them at his web site.

Nomadic State of Mind

Do I get anything out of pushing his sandals? Nope. Not a dime. If you buy a pair, I will have the satisfaction of knowing that your feet will feel much better than they did yesterday. That is enough for me!

One more question I get from my Conservative friends: Do you feel Liberal now?

My answer: No, but I don't mind walking anymore. . .



We got to the field and it was raining. So, what do you do when it is raining and you have a bunch of balloonists itching to do something???

Play with fire...

Here is Ray Fournier directing the mayhem.









More tomorrow. Hopefully, the weather will clear, the angels will sing, and we will fly.

I will be wearing my new pink sandals regardless.
