Drained of all energy....

Ava is wiped out. It is 82 degrees IN THE HOUSE. This house never gets hot, what a day. The bedroom is not hot because we have the door closed which I guess we could do out here if we really didn't like it...


I like this shot of Portland in an MSN article about Portland being one of the best places in America to live right now.

Jason and Aaron Photoshopped

Alyssa, our awesome summer intern sent me this compilation she made of Jason and Aaron. She was concerned that I needed to smile and reduce stress so reminded me what we have to look forward to next week. FUN! So glad that AB is coming to Maine two days before she goes back to school so she can meet the other half of Maineville.

Grampa Project # 268 of Summer 2010 :-)

OMG OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Check this out, Grampa's latest brainchild creation!
We had put lattice on the deck last winter so Ava could go out without a leash. Grampa enlarged it this summer but look now!!! This is amazing. It used to feel like you were in a cage out there, but it was OK because Ava was happy but.... Now, his new invention has it high enough so that Ava can't get out but low enough to see over, be able to water the basil plants and feel open. Easier for Ava to see her friends to bark at too! We are SO happy!

Danforth Billiard Room

New York Times singled out the Billiard Room for a special look. Dad loaned us stuff for the old pool area at their house that looks great. Trying to think what else we can do down there. Love that room.

September 1st

This just keeps getting better and better. Aaron asked Jason Spooner to play with him at The Danforth on September 1st. We are billing it as Aaron's Special Guest Jason Spooner celebrating the debut of his 3rd CD, Sea Monster. I know they'll do some songs together too. It will be like a mini Nashville Unplugged show. Aaron and I, through Maineville, are invested in Jason's CD so we are thrilled to have him be a part of this fun night. Yay! Can't wait.

My stress reliever...

I love seeing Mr. Buck but then I get stressed trying to get a good photo in focus.

Off to Camden...

Headed to Camden to preview Norumbega Inn and meet Chris, one of our Portland brokers for a file handover. Haven't seen Norumbega for years, Landvest has it for sale and nicely invited us to preview. THEN we are going to pretend we are tourists for an hour or two and have a nice lunch on the water.

Old Estates

Love looking at land that has the remnants of old estates still obvious. This one is where Bogue Chitto used to stand. Its name was "derived from Lousiana Indian Dialect meaning Brook of Shadows" (From Lost Bar Harbor)

Ipad Case

I want to go back to the good old days of the real estate market where I could have whatever I wanted, instead of just coveting :-)

Going to be FUN!

Definitely, if I could have a 4th inn without selling one of the others... this would be it.

Danforth in GQ

You can't buy this kind of press. Just a little mention in GQ's August issue with two photos makes the phone ring way more than any ad ever does. LOVE IT and VERY APPRECIATIVE! and on top of that I read the magazine from cover to cover.
