We were a little worried about that.  I saw a doe in the area later in the evening and assumed she was waiting for people to leave before getting the fawn and the fawn was gone in the morning.

Excellent non-action! 
Wardens and wildlife rehab folks get loads of new-born "faux-orphan" fawns this time of year from people who are unaware of deer behavior.  Mama deer makes the near-scentless little critter(s) lie still while she's our refueling.  Staying clear and checking later is exactly right.

July 6-7, 1965

I doubt we see July airmasses like this ever again.

Wow...

     https://www.cnn.com/2019/06/22/us/new-hampshire-accident-motorcyclists-pickup-truck/index.html

      ... Have to get more on the details to render any judgement buuuut... this strikes me as a Darwin award. 

I've seen highway cycling antics up there enough to wonder if there's local stunt culture in NH.  And one that on this day and time, got in the way of common sense on this one.  I've been driving N. on 93 and 3 ...more than a couple of times, when suddenly the whir of high compression crouch rockets shames my velocity on both side of my vehicle from behind.  A few of which are even doing wheelies ... this at 70 mph.  They're aren't all wearing helmets, too.  

I don't know - we'll see.  But wouldn't shock me if this was a time when one of these transient made popularity gangs tried to pass the wrong vehicle.

Or not.  1st reports say the pickup and bikes were driving in opposite directions.  People routinely travel 70+ on that road, whether 2, 4 or more wheels.

@dryslot What's the deal with the "Lewiston Lobster roll?"   I saw a hotdog roll with an actual hotdog in it, topped with lobster meat.

Not sure, If i had to guess where it is its probably at Simones Hot Dogs, Nothing i would eat, That takes up to much space in the roll.

I was just poking around the Good Harbor (Gloucester) stats...

The current SST is 52F. (8F BN)

Most of the North Atlantic is well BN. Makes sense considering the cool regime we’ve been experiencing here on the coast.

It might not even have anything to do with Lewiston. Just heard the name. And yeah, why on Earth would you do that?

More tender than the tail, so I save it for last.

And though I like hot dogs, I'd consider them pollution to join lobster in the roll.

Yeah, Tail meat is much tougher, No way that is happening, I mean WTF is that? Some of the prices you pay for a lobster roll at some of these places i want as much lobster meat in there as possible, I pick and choose where i go for one if i'm out but i usually just make my own.

The picture I saw (from amarshall) had the nastiest looking lobster meat I’ve ever seen. All dried out looking. 

 

Hard pass

 

we should also close down this thread since we are into summer

This is one i had from Reds Eats in Wiscasset, There is a roll under that pile of meat, But you want to be prepared to wait 45-90 mins in line for one at times, Its just a hole in the wall shack but they do $5 million in business annually out of that location, And that's just May-Oct.
