Multiple choice question. What is Mark celebrating in this picture?

A) The successful passage of a bill in the Minnesota Legislature granting anyone who meets Maine residency requirements tax-free status in the state of Minnesota.

B) He just found a black shirt with a white State of Minnesota silhouette on the lapel at the University  Avenue Salvation Army.

C) He’s not celebrating. A smuggled lobster escaped from a cooler in the truck and just bit him on the foot.

D) Mark and Jen  just completed a 2,000 mile journey from Maine to Minnesota with stops in Utica, NY; Pittsburgh, PA and Iowa City, IA. On the trip they dodged a tornado on the New York Thruway, stayed at the historic 14-story Hotel Utica, met the John Hughes family in Pittsburgh for a Pirates game, downed Pimanti’s cheese-steak sandwiches, biked to a Squirrell Hill record store, roared through Indianapolis minutes after the 500 and attended a Memorial Day band concert at the Herbert Hoover Presidential Library in West Branch, Iowa.

Can’t wait to see all our friends and family in the great state of Minnesota and celebrate summer in the land of sky blue waters.

    Welcome home Mark and Jen!!!! Now the land of sky blue waters is no more after the city of Mound with permission from the PCA dumped raw sewage into Lake Minnetonka. Be careful where you swim!!!! It’s nice to have you back and hope to see you soon Karen and John

  4. What a journey! How long will you be there? FYI – I nominated “Mark in Maine” for a Liebster Award!

  5. Em: We’ll be in Minnesota until around Aug. 20. Are you coming back stateside? Thanks for the nomination!
