Mainely Awesome

We recently spent a week in Maine visiting family and old friends. It was blazing hot but we managed to stay cool, have fun, and eat plenty of lobster. Here is a photo recap.

cooked, uncooked, she doesn't care

lobster soft taco with pasta and grilled veggies--yeah, it was as good as it looks

a little cool down

wiffle ball in the back yard--summer has truly arrived

a very one-way game of catch

big ocean=big hit

one of the most relaxing back decks evah!

a very poor panoramic of a very incredible view off of the back deck

The obligatory photo at a lighthouse

Opening Pandora's Box

Sometime last year, I submitted my children's album Huckleberry Party to Pandora, and after a month or so I was informed it was accepted. Sweet! They told me the process was not a quick one to go from accepted to actually being played on the service, but I was in no rush. I checked in every week or two, and eventually, months later, there I was. 'Would you like to create a Richard Popovic station?' 'Why yes, I think I'd like that very much.' I set it up and wondered what song they would play first. OK, not one of mine, no biggie, I bet I'll be next. OK, not that one, maybe the next one. Or the one after that. Or after that. Or maybe at half past not in my lifetime...
