Bringing the pumps to you!
This is Leopold. He was stationed at Maine’s Fort Knox. The only fort I’ve ever visited with a library and a reading room.
Other troops were sent there a few times in history. But they elected to camp outside the fort. There were so many places for cannons. And no cannons were ever sent to the fort.
This fort was built years too late. To combat a threat long past. It’s best seen from across the river, as it sits on a hillside.
I present you the art installation “two scoops” as performed by Downeast Ice Cream Factory.
No lobster roll today.
Whale watching trip was cancelled due to rain.
Puffin trip cancelled due to lack of puffins.
As solace, I direct you to The Bucket List for 2.
Prepared at Young’s Lobster Pound. Where we passed many a lobster and crab.
And when my number was called, I Rose to receive this menagerie from under the sea (and corn).
It was as good as it looked. And we left a large pile of mussels and clams to a very large family(?) party at a nearby table.
Lobster Roll #3
Ordered with a shrimp roll and a haddock sandwich. All were very good. And despite ordering only one with onion rings, we got two.
The plan for vacation is off to a good start.
I published my own thoughts on Luke Smith’s post about Destiny 2 from yesterday.
Boiling it down
The easy 1, 2, 3 of stoicism may be presented as:
If you can change it, it doesn’t deserve your worry. Go ahead and make the change. Just do it!
If you can’t change it, it doesn’t deserve your worry. You can’t fix it, so why stress?2
If you worry about it anyway, you are simply inviting it to tyrannise and traumatise you, indefinitely. Rumination is the worst.
My car has a backup camera now.
It seems like a good product. The instructions were non-existent. I bought three things from Home Depot to get it working. And I learned how to crimp wiring. And just how flimsy the interior of a Chevy Equinox is.
