    In special honor of women veterans, WWII Navy vet Elaine Abraham is grand marshal for Albany's annual Vets Day parade tomorrow.
    Our own Porter is also a Navy veteran. Either aboard the USS Monitor or CSS Merrimack--I forget which. .

    Great photo from back in the day, Porter. Thanks for your service.

    A month shy of 20, this is me crossing the Delaware in General George's army:

    Cold. And don't ask what did Delaware? A young corporal never tells.

    Is it normal to get snow so early in the season?

    Wait.

    You're kidding. You mean mid-October, right? Unless Maine has been moved north of the Arctic circle.

    Up in Canuck land it was a little early for snow but it was only a dusting.

    Still, WINTER APPROACHES! BRACE YOURSELVES LADIES AND GENTLEMEN!

    There's a miserable cut-off low system moving through here today and it's cold. Mid November!! We're supposed to be moving into the really warm weather now but today's highs are set to be 17C/62F and I'm shivering.





    Why are you laughing?



    My winter slippers aren't that ugly!





    Sheesh!

    fortunately the dogs like cold weather.

    in other news I passes the ten mile mark on my virtual walk across the country from West Quoddy to Cannon Beach.
    To make it interesting I research my route. for instance .. this as I passed through Lubec


    Trip by bypasses the town. Want some gold? In 1897/98 Local Reverand Jernegan and Charles Fisher from Martha's Vineyard promised success in removing gold from salt water. While the sea does contain suspended gold it still is not feasible to refine it but the Electrolytic Marine Salts Company claimed the ability and successfully marketed shares until they shut down their mill and "disappeared". The town was also the home of the oldest couple in the airplane, who embarked on their first commercial air flight ... on 9/11/2001 ... plane boarded a few passengers in Portland, ME who were carrying box cutters .. oops.
    I'm down about 60 lbs so far ... past the half way point ... largely with thanks to my VA dietitian ... no she's not making me eat army food.

    Wait.

    Nobody wants to know what I'm thinking.

    It's safer that way.
