    • Never know where those famous one-liners might take us today…I can’t imagine a car ad! Have an awesome first week of spring, Noelle. Still lots of snow here in Central Maine–characteristically behind times! 🙂 xo


      • Sorry to hear that, but then Maine is usually just in spring while we are full summer. We had a dead stop to spring the last two weeks but things have picked where it left off when the freezing temps hit.


  4. I’m bit partial to this quote, although I’m not really sure who the author is. I found it posted from http://www.ilovebeing Irish.net one day and claimed it. “May our oat’s hot steam nourish your Irish smile, And may you be thankful to Him Who fills your bowl, warms your heart, and soothes your soul.”

    Thanks, Bette for all the wonderful things you bring to us.
