      Hi jandee, I'm glad you like the pix. I was in France years ago but I was young and more interested in the cities and girls :-P The trees are cool, Maine is something like 95% trees and water so it's very beautiful and relaxing. Hope you're doing well, I haven't had much time on Hp lately. Peace!! Tomk

      25, thanks! When I decide to move there I'm taking you with me :-P Think you could handle the cold winters? Great to hear from you. I noticed someone calling you Fehl, is that your name? I'd rather say your name if that's cool with you. Take care, Tom

      The winter can be kinda harsh, but nice too. Being snowed in let's you spend time with family that you normally might not have had.

      Maya, how cool you live there. I've come up there about every 2 years for the past 6 and I'm seriously considering not coming back the next trip. A friend has some land in Lee. I love most everything about Maine, though I have yet to experience the winter there. Thanks for stopping by!

      Love these pics! Born in Maine but left too young to remember living there. Just beautiful. Also "hearing" Bah Haabah makes me really miss my Daddy. Thanks for the memories and new sights.

      Merle Ann did you notice the pic of the 2 old guys? I stay in touch with Ray, he and his native american lady friend do some awesome art. The tile thing has a website that's probably going to be better Wednesday, my friend Daren is shooting for that day to have it up on Go Daddy. We did a craft show a couple of weeks ago and that went well but we were too late to get in the good ones this time of the year. Getting cooler here but that doesn't really bother me. It's just weather :-P Hope all's well with you and your ma! Peace and Love!!!

      Thanks Todd, lobstah and chowdah are killah :-P I know what you mean, I spent some time on boats but that was a different kind of time. These guys work their asses off but seem to always be upbeat and friendly/

      Beautiful pics dude! I've never really been close to that place - but damn I love Lobstah and chowdah!

      You damn sure got some psychedelic colors going in there!

      I've always thought I'd like to ....spend some time on some boats - I already like to do most of those things that sailors do!
