    If it doesn't stop snowing and being below 0, I'm going to weigh 200# since all I do is bake! On a positive note, my closets, cabinets, and kitchen drawers have never been more organized. No need to feel guilty about watching full seasons on Netflix right?

  • The Magic of Christmas
    Fri, 01/05/2018 - 4:26pm

    Our daughter, Susie Pepper, was invited back to perform at the Portland Symphony's Magic of Christmas again this year. I was at all 12 performances acting as her "manager". Basically, I sat backstage and elevated while she sang. Please check out her first CD of "first dance" songs that she and her band Mixology put together from all the weddings they have played. I'd be happy to send you one for just $10 too.

    Some people can really come up with the most thoughtful gift ideas. Here's one from Tori, my son's girlfriend. There are a lot of green and white pieces, but I love a challenge!d

  • 35 Years waiting for this to happen
    Fri, 10/20/2017 - 3:49pm

    Ray has waited for 35 years to be drawn in the Maine Moose Lottery to have the chance to go after a moose in northern Maine. He was successful as you can see and now there's plenty of moose meat to go around to family and friends. Don't worry, guests, we won't be serving up any for you, but if you'd like to try some we're happy to send you home with a steak or two. If you are interested in viewing a really intense video of the hunt please click on this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m5JKCdi7wx0 video

    d When auditions for the Wicked Witch of the West came around again I knew I had to reprise my role and do it again. I'm so excited to scare the pants off my 12 grandchildren from 17 years ago. I think I may be even "wickeder" than ever! I'll get you my pretty..... and your little dog too!

  • Daughter #5 gets married!
    Fri, 06/16/2017 - 3:51pm

    Daughter #5 to get married, Maria, is my most unique. She didn't want to have her reception here at the inn, but opted for The Portland Company in Portland on the waterfront. I have to say I was very unsure about her choice until I walked in and saw what she did with an old railroad repair warehouse. INCREDIBLE!!
