Thanks, Aunt Diane!

Bailey received a wonderful gift from Rich's UMaine colleague, Diane Jackson. Nothing like a new toy... especially one he can not destroy. "Woof-you," Aunt Diane!

from Natalie Goldberg

"Writers live twice. They go along with their regular life, are as fast as anyone in the grocery store, crossing the street, getting dressed for work in the morning. But there's another part of them that they have been training. The one that lives everything a second time. That sits down and sees their life again and goes over it. Looks at the texture and detail." -Natalie Goldberg in Writing Down the Bones.

Moose Hunt: Road trip to Rangeley

In search of moose, we took to the roads and headed up to Rangeley and what's called the Height of Land... the highest point where cars can get to.Rangeley is a summer and winter tourist town in the mountains about 40 minutes from Rumford.

We had burgers at a sports pub and then on the trip back, we saw two lonely moose on the edge of the road... a big male and smaller female. Unfortunately, the darkness didn't allow for photos and when Bailey started barking, the poor moose took off like blowing balls through the woods.
