June Lightning

June is going to go by lightning fast. For starters, there is a concert in Bangor, Maine that I cannot wait for! Then, a concert at home. After that, a week later, an art show reception for my talented sister’s work. Then, a vacation with my best friend (Maine for the third weekend in a row). I will have many opportunities to read. Hence, the huge list:

    Sounds like a lot of good reading going on in Bangor, Maine. Can I get off topic for just a moment – Does the state of Maine have so much lobster that they make pet foot out of some of it? I enjoy reading your posts.

    That’s an interesting question. I’ve never heard of lobster in pet food. Can’t imagine it would be good for them.
