The Maine Event

The other day while driving on the Maine Turnpike, I was passed by a truck from a company called Mainely Roofs. It reminded me of another local business called Mainely Ticks. I began to wonder if people moved to this state just so they could have clever state-related names for their businesses. Then I began to wonder if there were any other states where one could come up with business names that tied into the name of the state. The "best" I could come up with was "Iowa Lot of Money Finance Company."

Spring? Maybe.

Well, my front yard is now finally nearly 100% snow free. The back yard - still pretty much under snow cover. However, the flower bed in the back of the house is now beginning to sprout some flowers. The daffodils are coming up and there are a few buds, and I spotted some lovely purple flowers along with one lone white flower. I'm not sure what these are (they were planted by the previous owner), but it's nice to see some color in the backyard.

Well, it's April 8th, and here are the current views from my front door and back window. I'm really, really, really tired of the snow. We had around 100 inches this year, and it's not going away.

It's been a long winter - emotionally and physically and I'm more than ready for a change.
