We worshipped again yesterday with all of our friends at First Baptist of Freeport. It would be very easy to assimilate back into that body of believers. We showed up in time for Sunday School and, as usual, were among the last to leave – just the way it was fourteen years ago.
For our return trip, we took the “scenic” route home; that is, we drove back route 1 all the way from Freeport to Scarborough which took us right through the middle of “beautiful downtown” Portland. Actually, Portland has “cleaned up” nicely. As with a lot of old dying cities with a waterfront, it has been renewed into an eclectic town of bistros, coffeehouses, restaurants, and cute little shops with walking paths, parks, benches, etc.. We’ll have to take a day trip up to Portland and spend sometime just walking about the city enjoying all the latest amenities.
For Mother’s Day Dinner, we stopped at Hannaford and took out a thirty day note on a pound of scallops. Scallops are my favorite seafood, however, at fifteen dollars a pound we won’t be eating them often. I sauteed them in real butter and garlic, serving them to my bride along with a nice garden salad. Dessert was a dish of Hood ice cream (another favorite of ours).
So, thar you have it. Take Care Until Next Time - - - - - -
