This young miss is either attempting a last minute fattening of Tom Turkey or she's trying to lure him into the cooking pot. He'll have even more to grouse about if we tell him he is related to the grouse.
The Thanksgiving wishes from Uncle Dale, a man of few words, was mailed from Eden Maine to Brooklin, Maine on November 23, 1909.
Brooklin, Maine was incorporated as the town of Port Watson on June 9, 1849. Just a few weeks later, the name was changed to Brooklin. The community was named for the brook line that separated the towns of Brooklin and Sedgwick.
Charlotte's Web author, E. B. White lived in Brookline
I had a difficult time finding Eden; the name was changed to Bar Harbor in 1918 (under a law passed in 1913) It is located on Mount Desert Island.
Bar Harbor became a retreat for prominent people of the time. The Rockefellers, Morgans, Fords, Vanderbilts, Carnegies, and Astors, chose to spend their summers here. Not content with the simple lodgings then available, these families transformed the landscape of Mount Desert Island with elegant estates, euphemistically called "cottages." Luxury, refinement, and ostentatious gatherings replaced buckboard rides, picnics, and day-long hikes of an earlier era.
A false berry is an accessory fruit found in certain plant species with an inferior ovary, distinguishing it from a true berry. In these species other parts of the flower (including the basal parts of the sepals, petals, and stamens) can ripen along with the ovary, forming the false berry. Examples of plants which produce false berries include:
Another primary color Maine crop is the red lobster - pronounced lobstah in Bah Habah Maine.
Lobsters may effectively live indefinitely, barring injury, disease, capture, etc. In other words, they don't age. Because of this, they can reach impressive sizes. According to the Guinness World Records, the largest lobster was caught in Nova Scotia, Canada, and weighed 20.15 kilograms (44.4 lb). Pass me the buttah!
Enjoy your Thanksgiving!
