On my walk back to my office, I found myself hummin' the song "If you can't be with the ones you love, Love the ones you're with" :) (Luv those kids and this village!)

I found this Fall Foliage photo of the Somesville bridge in last year's files...sent from one of our 'paying house guests' at Acadia Pines...
Fall Foliage will be here before we know it!
If you have not booked your Maine cottage yet, email or call ASAP to reserve your spot.
We'll leave the lights on for you, welcome you with homemade bread and jam...and GrampE Bob will make a special welcome sign for your 'Piece of Maine'."I stood on the bridge at midnight as the clocks were striking the hour,

Hope you can drop by to visit. (Fun Times)
When I was driving by the village Library this AM, I saw my favorite ducks (Max and Matilda) waiting by my friend Elaine's bench, wondering when the kids were coming to feed them. It's hard to believe the wonderful warm weather we have this year for Mud Season...
(Three Seasons in Maine: Summer, Winter, and Mud Season :)
BTW:I took this photo last summer..It is not THAT warm yet!)
Thank you Nicole for the designing the event poster...and Thank you Gail for letting me share your painting of Elaine's Bench. Elaine Reddish was a good friend and a valuable and appreciated member of the Somesville Library Board of Trustees. (Fond Memories)

Mount Desert Island is 'Going to the Dogs'.
On Saturday Karen Balducci, Maine's First Lady and Founder of Maine Reads was our keynote speaker at The Big Read kickoff event. She officially launched this reading adventure in which an estimated 1200 readers across 7 local islands will read the same book at the same time.
For the next month, participants will devour Jack London's The Call of the Wild.
The busy schedule will include 39 events...including a Book Discussion this Thursday at our Somesville Village Library. (7PM)
We hope you can attend .
If you have not read the book, come anyway to listen to the discussion. Phyllis, Tom and Jean have a nice program prepared...and I'm sure Jean will bring some of her yummy cookies.
PS: Did you know that Jack London has a connection to Mount Desert Island through his marriage to Charmian Kittredge (related to Jean !)....I bet she has some family secrets she's going to share with us!....It will be lots of fun (and delicious. I love Jean's old family recipe cookies...simply the BEST EVER!)
