On my morning jaunt with Owen the rescue weirdo, the world provided me with the New England version of a treasure hunt: the free pile. This one included a box of dishes (probably not microwave safe), a few kitchen tools and no coffee mugs. Most household goods free piles have at least 3 coffee mugs. I took the rolling pin since Baker Will has been wondering why we don’t have one. And we trotted on amongst the old factory buildings and over the canal bridge. Yesterday I saw our blue heron flying with what I hope is a mate. Exciting Springtime behavior.
