Seen from the water

The best way to sail is with a friend.  Which is what I did with Jay Lash on Casco Bay. It was a very lazy late-August day on the water.  Little wind.  In three hours I think we saw one lobster boat and, oh yes!, half a dozen seals. But Jay managed to get the sailboat up to about six knots for a few minutes - which he enjoyed.   Even if there wasn’t a lot of action, I think Jay’s of the opinion that a slow day on the water is still better than a fast day at the office. I think he’s on to something.

Seen along the road: Is that an ?????

Matt Young, of Topsham, Maine says he’d “rather sell it than plow around it this winter.” He’s asking $2,500 for this 1958 Edsel.  He got it in trade for a late 1940s Ford.  Matt does a lot of swapping. His business cards say he’s into "anything automotive.” Young says the car can be driven and that the original engine is under the massive hood.  He proudly points to the steering wheel which featured one of Edsel’s many original ideas, pushbutton gear shifting. And the two tone beige-black upholstery is a hint that, many years ago, the car was distinctive. Pricing began at about $2,700 and went as high as $3,766, according to Wikipedia. Today, a well restored two door 1958 Edsel is worth about $21,000.

Despite Penn State and Northwestern losing their games Saturday, the sun came up this morning along the Sheepscot River in Maine.  Temp in the bedroom was 63, outside 59.
