  3. My favorite pic was Victoria waiting with her great Danes that look more like horses. Beautiful dogs have to take my vote. A lot of work goes in to this stuff and I like to see this side of the set.

  5. Hi Kitty…..Well it's almost time for you to take off into the Wild Blue Yonder to a place you love so much.
    I hope the skies are blue for your flight…I know you must be beside yourself with excitement I bet you're already packed and sitting on the front porch waiting for your Gary to pick you up to head for the Airport…
    Seriously, I wish you a safe flight and hope you have a Wonderful time. Soak up everything you can, maybe have a little notebook just in case your mind is full… Lilly and I will look for you Monday at Moody's…Can't wait to see you and Gary and have my piece of Walnut pie with just a "small" scoop of ice cream on top..Yum..Hope we get to meet Lisa and Camac while we're in Moody's… It's going to be so much fun planting all those Ben Franklin Trees on the side of the Barn..Just think what those trees can do to save that Big Old Red Barn..Lilly and I will get to see the Barn and the BC, but the sad part is we can't stay..We have to get back to the blog, before we wake up!!! Have a great time and try to rest when you can.. Keep in touch, if you have the time..I'm so excited for you!!!

    • Hi there dear Jennie! Check out my trip report on the later Barn as art blog. I finally got sort of internet connected at the log cabin we stay in. It' seems a bit spotty and my connection keeps slowing to total pause, so i have to be patient when I'm on internet, but hey–at least I have internet. When My great grandparents summered here and wrote DAILY letters, (aaargh!) they did it. I hate to write letters. The computer and email has set me free from that! Actually, when Gary and I rode through Wiscasset and finally saw Red's Eats–the famous Lobster Roll Place that is said to be the bane of traffic in Wiscasset, there was really quite a reasonably short line! Go figure! It has become so infamous for its traffic holdups, I think traffic, simply slows down miles outside of Wiscasset and automatically drives at snails pace well before and all the way past the bridge AFTER Red's Eats!!! No KIDDING–It really took us 1 1/2 hour to get through the charmingly beautiful village of Wiscasset! (Now THAT is "expectancy theory" in action!) Our flight was uneventful, we had one stop in Baltimore without debarking and flew into Manchester NH, instead of Portland, ME. I think for me now, with my more severe neuropathy/stenosis and sciatica, it would be wiser to minimize the auto travel, as Manchester requires–I hadn't thought of that. I had thought of the direct flight/non-debarking thing. But I didn't calculate for the total hours I would have to sit or be uprite, which is a challenge for me these days. Any time minimization on the uprite travel then, is a good thing for me. It has never taken us 5 1/2 hours to our New Harbor place from Manchester! Yuk! Even if we have to change planes next time, it's Portland, ME for sure! Maybe Lisa's hubby will be our Pilot? Gary and i had do do some searching for Franklin Stock Seedlings! Seem to be very popular , so hard to find, but since I've planted them before, my former supplier was generous as could be, under the circumstances, what with the drought, and Midwestern fires and all lately. I should count my blessings! Here's hoping that you and Lilly go on the trip of your lives, and see things you never would have the chance to otherwise see. May your travel be very restful; and, may our Moody's Diner lunch and awesome desserts stuff you calorylessly to the gills–My treat–shhhhh… its supposed to be a secret! xD:pB) OK. Wear sunglasses. Then none of the Bloggies will recognize you. xD;):*<3<3 Kitty
