Yes it is! Yes it is! You just have to BELIEVE!
Besides, on Ground Hog Day (yes, I had scrapple for breakfast), first birds I saw outside was a male pigeon all puffed up and harassing the hens. Definitely a sign of spring. Then lots of Robins (many are here all year like the pigeons, but stay in the woods), then the glorious "song" of Common Grackles and then, just a few days ago, the first pill bug! As you probably know, PBs are as terrestrial Isopods - actually the only crustaceans that spend their lives on land. And of course, Lobsters are crustaceans, and this is Maine, and one of my vehicles has a Lobster plate on it. So now you see how all this ties together.
You don't? Ok - then how about this? - THERE WILL BE MUSIC! Many thanks to Shanna Wheelock for agreeing to continue the music tradition that Bonnie and Ukey started (see Crow Town Gallery news below) long ago and for providing a venue for CB Music's offerings as well. Also thanks to Kurt Andreson for starting the Lubec Area Musicians Philanthropic Society (LAMPS) which will be officially announced soon. Thanks to the Lubec Brewing Company for keeping music going through the winter. And thanks to everybody who supports music by listening, dancing, singing, and all those other healthy things.
I'm going to start loading the calendar and working on a newsletter which will, I hope, have actual news in it. I hope to have the self-registration feature fixed soon. The newsletter subscription buttons still work though.
(from Bonnie) -
Longtime Crow Town Gallery owner, Bonnie Beard, has handed the keys over to Shanna Wheelock who will, from here on out, operate the gallery. They are two happy gals! Updates to come after the new gallerist settles in.
(from Shanna) -
I am excited to finally (and formally) announce that I am the new owner/operator of Crow Town Gallery in Lubec. I've been a bit absent on facebook lately (and in other realms) and this is partly why. I'm busy with renovations and getting settled. I'm very happy! Thank you to the former gallerist/owner , Bonnie Beard, for entrusting me with her gallery that she has run for many years, offering the community a place to enjoy inspiring artwork and concerts. It truly is a dream come true for me!
