So, bottom line (as my husband would say)....is that this September we were 96% full.....October we are already 65% full....and next year we are 27% full already!! Yes, that is good....unless you are the person typing all of that info into the new program. Actually, I am not complaining. I like to type!
So, for past guests who are used to getting our promo discount postcard, that will not be happening this year. I cannot type fast enough. With any luck, I will get everything entered so we can send a
Holiday card (no guarantees). We shall see.
Last weekend, and this weekend, we have had wedding parties staying with us. Last weekend the weather was iffy.....this weekend it is drizzly and cold. Hopefully the wedding will be great regardless.
Well, I have a big birthday this week. I could actually collect Social Security! I guess that means I am officially "old".....but I sure do not feel it! (You are suppose to say I do not look it right now.)
Ok, type, or pick flowers......what do you think? Sue

We have to wait until September for them to bloom, but they are worth it. Maybe next year I will start the bulbs inside to give them a head start.
Many of you know that this is Aimee (my lovely daughter in law), and Alicia (my very dear friend). They were working a particularly stressful shift last week, and decided they needed a little "drink". Now, I will not tell you what is in their cups, nor will I tell you which shift this was.....you can guess. I was at my other job (at my husbands office) and Alicia texted me that they had a "situation". Everything worked out ok however. Aimee and Alicia are 2 of the reasons I love this place!
Hope all of you are happy and healthy. Til next time, Sue

This past week has been amazing, so much going on. As many of you know my husband is the Captain on a Private Motor Yacht and this past week they spent time cruising around in Mid Coast Maine. If you were one of the many lucky people staying at the Log Cabin you could see the boat cruising the Sound after their overnight trip to Cooks.
There was also a Birthday Party for Jon's Boss this week and we both attended. The exciting part was that President George H.W. Bush was there along with Barbara and I got a great picture. Politics aside, it is exciting meeting any President.
Then the other great day this week is when the kids went back to School. Danny in 4th, Josh in 1st and Terrence in Kindergarten ( finally).. Not that it matters much because we are all here working when they are at school anyway.
The weather has been quite humid and the Inn is still going in full swing. We are booked for the next 17 days. The Harpswell Room isn't available until October 7th and then for only a few nights. People are still swimming in the pool. I am looking forward to apple picking season so we can start the Apple Pie and Homemade Apple Sauce. The Dahlia's are just amazing, the colors glorious and the size. Who can grow them as Big as Sue?

Been doing some fall cleaning as well. I just took apart out steak pit and cleaned that all out. It is quite the "yucky" job.....one noone else has fought me for! Oddly enough, I enjoy the "yucky" jobs. Hmm......
Now I will go out and play in the gardens. Our dahlias are a bit late blooming this year...so I am urging them along with some extra fertilizer. They are my favorite flower....another reason to love September!
Tonight there are fireworks and music at Mitchell Field.....to celebrate September!!
Hope you are all well, Sue
