An afternoon trip to Lisbon yesterday brought me here. The front of this classic New England barn seems newly painted, sort of a soft, weathered yellow. Walk to the rear, and you're faced with this, tall weathered boards with a ramp covered with moss and weed growth. This was a little surprise. A view not seen from the farmhouse itself. My sister Connie from Lakeland (Lakeland checking in) and her husband Irv are visiting Maine for a few weeks. They travel in a 35 foot camper and make the trip in 2 days, 14 hours the first day and 10 the second. I'm sure it has most of the comforts of home, and for someone who likes the 'adventure' of the open road, I'd like to think that I'd enjoy the motoring around. Factor in the gas and upkeep though... The jury's still out on this for me. It was a wonderful afternoon of 'catching up', and Amato's Italians were on the menu. Marchin and his wife Donna and Elenka and I ventured together to Lisbon. I even got to meet Max, a Westie. Family time is time well spent.
