Two Ladies in the Happy Days Universe

Monday, August 26th, 2013

hd5Happy Days is one of those feel-good comedies of the 1970’s, and to a lesser extent, so is its spin-off Laverne & Shirley.

Bob and I were in Lubec, Maine – which is credited as being the easternmost town in the contiguous United States. But aside from the sunrise, we had already seen everything there was to see here. But there was more to see just a little further east. Of course to go further east meant that we would have to leave American soil, and since we had our passports handy, that’s just what we did. But we started with a bit of breakfast continental style, mine being especially full of blueberry (a muffin and yogurt), and then a little bit after 8am, we checked out and headed into Canada.
