    But I've been VERY BUSY! Only to see if this thread will post, then I'll be back with some spectacular aerial photos.

    OK; I haven't forgotten how to "get in," only forgot my Password. Spectacular Aerial Photos, but NOT MINE. Paul Cyr is a magnificent photographer, way up in northern Maine(Aroostook County) (the potato capitol). He's not the only photographer up there in the north woods, but he might as well "own" the profession. Anyway, this Link to him is ALL you need to know at the moment. https://www.facebook.com/Paul-Cyr-Photography-508977902608242/.

    Oh, and have I been busy? Yes. I have designed a series of 16(and growing) Reusable Grocery tote Bags. Only have prototypes finished at the moment; searching for a manufacturer in order to get the best "landed cost" so I can get them into vendors. I'm looking to get "landed cost" such that if a vendor sells a bag for $12.00, we'll BOTH make a profit. Original edition is here, if I remember how to post a picture. I designed it - finished - at 2:00 AM, ordered two prototypes at 2:30, posted it on the Saint George(where Port Clyde is located) Message Board at 3:00. At 7:30 a lady posted, "Are these still available? I want to buy five." Turned out she has been going to Port Clyde for over 70 years, and when her husband retired many years ago they bought a home there. Winter home? Hilton Head, South Carolina. I think I'm onto something here. Stores have placed orders, in some cases for "I'll take 50 to start, when you get your final pricing," even before I get the best producer lined-up.

    Port Clyde, Maine? It's where Artist N. C. Wyeth, son Andrew Wyeth and Andy's brother and sisters spent their summers away from Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania. It's also the home of historic Marshall Point Light Station.

    So Bath, Maine(home of Bath Iron Works - Shipbuilder) passed an ordinance which prohibits stores from dispensing disposable plastic bags. Time was for me to get busy.

    Look at the size of that ship, compared to the lighthouse it's passing, going into Rockland Harbor.
