Lamentations 3: 22 It is of the Lord 's mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. 23 They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.
I had a birthday yesterday, and that makes me too old for all this technology! I just read an older article written several years ago that at that time Facebook's Zuckerberg was an old man of 28 and that was the average age of his employees. The average age of Google's workforce was 29. Sure makes me feel too old for all this technology. I only bring this up because the last few T Parties, I haven't been able to figure out how to comment on some of the T-Gang's blogs. I write the comment, and push submit, and the comment goes away, but I can tell it didn't take. So, I think maybe it is a matter of comment moderation, and I go back later and comment is still not there. So, I will try this week, again! Thanks for your patience while I try to figure this out!
Meanwhile, here is a photo of all the wonderful homemade cards and goodies that were sent me for my birthday!
And a few more of our Maine photos. Even my kids don't look at all our vacation photos, so this is it; promise! We went to the Penobscot Marine Museum, which was very interesting. So much history that I never knew! I guess that is why we go to museums to learn more history! Searsport's early history was very interesting. It's major industry was shipbuilding and cargo handlings and the town is famous for it's sea captains in the mid 1800s. It was once home to 10 percent of all American deep water shipmasters. That is a quote off the website. We went through a house that a captain had built. They displayed photos on the walls, hundreds of photos of the sea captains from this town. Over 500 ship captains came from Searsport! They had 11 shipyards and built over 200 ships. Some families had three to five captains in their families. The sons, fathers, and grandfathers. Some of the wives even went on their trips with them! I just found all of this amazing!
|This is a big thing in Maine, the Museum in the streets, where you can do a walking tour and see historical homes and sites.|
|I had to take this photo because the ship ropes were the railings. I thought that was pretty cool.|
|I wanted to sail!|
|Lobster, lobster and more lobster! Love it, and the lighthouse border, too.|
|In this photo is a cup and a bottle up in the window. That is my drink related post! :) I forgot again to take a photo of our drink or our meal!|
Stop over at Bleubeard (who just had a birthday yesterday, too) & Elizabeth's Altered Book Lover and see some more of the T Gang! Thanks for stopping by. Have a great T Day!
