Hey ~ do you realize what today is?
It's August 2nd, which means we are
half way through Summer!
It seems a good day to share some pics of an
event we had in Maine back in March.
The Cardboard Box Races!
Yeah, these people know how to make their own fun.
This year, unfortunately, it was a rather warm day,
so not many of the racers made it to the finish line,
even though the line itself was
moved further up the hill.

Many of them actually got out and carried
their creations once it was apparent they had slid
as far as they were going to slide.
Designs ranged from the simple . . .
|This guy in the blue jacket got a workout pushing many of the contestants to the finish line.|
. . . to the more complex.
|I think this lobster fellow won for best design.|
Mostly it was youngsters, but there were a few adults too.
Ok, I'm ready for snow now.
