Five Questions Friday: Maine Pickers

Q: Where are we going today?
Eric: We are going to Lovell, Maine to stay with our good friends Karen and Eric for the weekend. Tonight, we are heading over to the Stone Mountain Arts Center to see one of my favorite musical artists, Billy Bragg.

Q: One of the purposes of this blog is for people to get to know you better. Why don’t you tell everyone to whom and what you tweeted last night?
Eric: I tweeted Billy Bragg and told him if he did not play Ingrid Bergman I would throw beef stroganoff at him. (editor’s note: Everyone now has a better understanding of his maturity level.)

Q: What annoyed you this week?
Eric: Breathing in all the toxic lacquer fumes when finishing the counter top. That was nasty.

Q: What are you most looking forward to this weekend?
Well, I have several things going on this weekend: 1) we are going to see Billy Bragg tonight; 2) tomorrow I’m heading over to Sandwich, New Hampshire for a League of New Hampshire Craftsmen workshop; and, 3) what I think I’ve really been looking forward to is competing in our first annual “Maine Pickers” on Sunday

Q: What is “Maine Pickers”?
Eric: It is an idea I had the last time we stayed with Karen and Eric and went to the Fryeburg Fair Fleamarket. I’m basing it off of “American Pickers” where all four of us will disperse and come together after an hour and we will decide who scored the best pick.
