    Default Where's Islander now?

    Good morning! Islander will be off on another adventure over the next few days, during which I will not have access to this site. Julieanne, our moderator, will be in charge. She has been endowed with the Crown of Power and the pink feather boa of authority. She also has access to the chastisement rod and will snap it smartly across your keyboard if she senses any funny business, so play nice and I'll see you all again soon!

    But this week marked the first time in the “pretty active” Mainer’s life that she came face-to-face with what was later determined to be a rabid fox — an animal she reluctantly killed by beating it over and over again with a wooden plank.

    ... wait I thought Islander was away? Guess her spirit's not (no connection between you, fox and wooden plank)

    Ora, the story is blocked unless I sign up to Facebook (not everyone is on Facebook!). But good for the Maine lady anyway - 98 and she's still got it! It does sound like Islander!

    Just a little correction: Islander is a mere 77.
    Not sure I could hold my own against a rabid fox, even if I do live to be 98!

    Anyway, I'm back, as anyone can see who's been here this morning. I did a quick catch-up because there's a lot of farm & garden catching up to do too, and the sudden heat & humidity are sapping my motivation. Up until about June 26 it was so cold in Maine that I had a fire in the study stove morning and evening... and now this, temps in the 90s! (And no, I have no A/C; used to be, in Maine you didn't need one, and besides, in my passive solar house there's no practical place to put one.)
