Yup, we’re about ½ way through one real “old school” Maine winter! Seems like we’re back in the snow cycle too! My son (a school-teacher) skillfully predicted a “snow day” on Wednesday, and we thoroughly enjoyed a boot high “powda pig” day in the freshies!! Nothing like skiing while snowing with almost no other skiers present!! Spent several awesome runs on Rogue Angel (Sunday River) in a long line of powder pillows. Here’s Pat’s face to prove it! Breathe Pat, breathe!
Mary’s been intensely sewing new drapes, finding new furniture pieces, painting, buying new linens, and pillows. She just finished the Cape Elizabeth Room today (minus graphic arts)! Brewster House recently acquired a lot of Real Maine artwork and photos, mat cutting equipment, etc., and are working on replacing what’s on many walls.
I recently drove with my son down to Memphis to keep him company on the way to learning to be a USAF pilot in Mississippi. Nice time with a very special young man! We will sorely miss him! Do you know what time 1P:G8 is? Lesson to inn-keeper here!
We just hosted “Reconnect Weekend” #2. If you consider the picture left, it’s pretty clear how much of a weekend long blast you and yours could be having for a ridiculous price! What a way to turn an otherwise boring, cold weekend into a fabulous reunion, filled with laughs, memories and great food!
