Our son was a really good artist in school.
He painted a mural on the high school wall of the Moxie commercial. I never liked or really knew what Moxie was but I did discover it was a very popular drink when we first came to Maine.
One of his teachers drank bottles of it and our son was given permission to paint the mural on the wall of this teacherís room, DH and I went in to view it and he did a really great job of it.
Fast forward to now.
The high school was replaced on another site. The oldest part of the school was put on the historic register when our youngest son was in school. The more recent part of the school was demolished and alas that was where the mural was.
I never look at a soda Aisle in the grocery store and I have not seen Moxie around for a very long time.
However. in the fall I noticed a name on my Spark page and it had the word MOXIE in it. I wrote on the page and since then that person and I have become friends.
I already have another friend where the new friend lives so tomorrow if the weather permits we will all get together in Belfast on the coast and we will all go out and have lunch. We rarely eat out so it makes it even more special.
This will be DH and my treat for the season. We have no-one around and so I have not bothered to decorate, it most likely would have made me sad.
Now we have a Spark meet of our own tomorrow noon so I am really hoping there will be no snow.
We shall see.
After all this is winter in Maine. And this is where the ski slopes are.
Pat in Maine has a highlight in our life.
Thanks and Happy Holidays to Spark people where ever you are, who ever you are and enjoy your selves as much as you can. Every day is a new adventure if you want to make it that way.
