I am told they are soon to be rebuilding!

Breakfast early this morning at Paul's Diner:
Paul's is a nice little diner in Westford. We've only gone there on weekends, but I see a brisk morning "breakfast sandwich and coffee" business as I drive past it in the morning on my way to work.
They've done some nice things inside to make it look "fifties-ish". I am hoping to get my fishing buddy, Paul, to go there sometime before one of our fishing outings. He'll have to get their t-shirt! In one of the pictures below you can see a wall of framed prints... each showing someone, somewhere in the world, wearing a Paul's Diner t-shirt.
Their extensive breakfast and lunch menu is here.

In addition to hot cookies coming from the oven, the cinnamon buns served here probably weigh half-a-pound. A fine sample is shown below on a 10" paper plate! After indulging, it is unlikely that you will need to eat again until dinner! Plus they serve Starbuck's coffee. For me, it doesn't get much better than that.

I drove up to Bethel Thursday afternoon to spend the night at Jaimie's apartment in the dorms of Gould Academy, and to ski with her at Sunday River on Friday. First, here are a few random shots taken Thursday afternoon and while walking downtown for dinner at Sud's, a dark paneled pub in the basement of the Sudbury Inn (Web site and menu here). If you like French Onion Soup or 1/2-pound burgers with hot crusty french fries, then this is the place!
Jaimie's cats are named Madison and Mansfield.
Friday turned out to be another sun-filled day. Temps at the mountain probably got no higher than the low 30s, as the skiing surface could best be described as loose frozen granular. We did notice some mushy snow at the bottom of the mountain at the end of the day. The view from the observation deck at the top of the mountain was spectacular. That's Mt. Washington in the distance in the long photo, some 20 miles away.

Reed and I always finish up, when having lunch together, with a trip to Rao's for coffee (or iced Chai tea, as Reed likes to get).
