only in Maine



We took a drive north today, nearly to Bangor, to visit my 93 year old Aunt and her husband. Once you get past Augusta it feels very much like the end of civilization. There are lots of "moose in roadway" signs and not much to look at but trees.

As we were running a bit early, no doubt the result of my lead foot, we stopped at a rest area near our destination to let the kids stretch their legs and kill a little time. The sticker pictured was on all of the trash cans. I've heard of the road kill cafe, but this was too much, even if I'm not "from away."

I guess some things aren't obvious to some people.

That "from away" post is hilarious. So is that picture.

I hope the trip is going well! And that you are catching up on some sleep.

I've always heard that 'pan fried barrel pick' is supposed to be pretty good.

I'm embarrassed to be from a place where this needs to be explicitly stated...
